Hostway Offers Journalists `Freedom of the Press' With Six Months of Free Web Hosting; Offer Designed to Let Freelance Writers Experience Benefits of Personal Web Sites [14th November 2003]

CHICAGO, Nov 14, 2003 (BUSINESS WIRE) -- Freedom of the press is one of America's foundation values. Web-services leader Hostway Corporation is making it a tangible value by giving freelance writers and journalists six months of free Internet Web-site hosting.

Many journalists and freelance writers have begun using personal Web sites to develop business opportunities, communicate with readers and clients, maintain Weblogs or "blogs," facilitate the submission and editing of manuscripts between themselves and their editors, and achieve other goals both business and personal.

"The Internet is the ultimate First Amendment medium," said John Lee, marketing director of Hostway. "Freedom of the press is something we take seriously, and we think our offer of free Web site hosting for writers and journalists shows our support for that idea. More importantly, it exemplifies our belief in the concept that every person will soon have a personal Web site to use as a basic platform for communication."

With the bewildering array of Web services available to writers and journalists - many of whom are unfamiliar with Web-hosting technologies and unsure of their need or ability to manage a personal Web site - Hostway's offer provides a simple, affordable solution that lets writers experience the benefits of having their own Web sites.

To the first 1,000 qualifying writers, Hostway will provide hosting service at no charge for the first six months - a savings of more than $120. To qualify for the offer, journalists and freelance writers only need to submit an article with their byline that has been published in print or online since the beginning of 2003 to freepress@hostway.com. More information is available at www.hostway.com/freepress.

Writers who take advantage of Hostway's "Freedom of the Press" offer also may register an Internet domain name through Hostway for just $6.95, and can use Hostway's InstantSite service for $12.95 to build a simple, customized Web site.
