Ad-free Sale Extended!

Greetings OurChurch.Com webmasters,

We hope you had a blessed Easter! You can also view this newsletter on the web at

1) Say Goodbye to Those Ads
2) More to Talk About
3) Feel the Speed
4) Beware of the Domain Transfer Scam

In our continuing effort to give our members the best-looking websites possible we have extended the half-price sale on the ad-free option for one more month. Through the end of April, we are offering the ad-free option for just $10/mo. If you didn't upgrade to the ad-free option in March and still want a more attractive website, don't wait. Login to your Webmaster page and click on "Order & Renew Premium Options" to take advantage of this special opportunity today!

Thanks to all of you who have responded to our webmaster surveys this month and last. As a result of your input we have added some things to our forums at http://forums.ourchurch.com

First, we added a new prayer request forum. We hope you'll take the time to post your prayer request and pray for those prayer requests posted by others. Second, we added a new Original Writing forum. This forum is specifically for those of you who write your own poetry, music, novels, etc. It's a chance to exchange ideas, get feedback, and let others know about your latest work. Finally, we added a testimonials topic to the "Website Service Questions and Comments" forum. This is your chance to let others know what OurChurch.Com has done for your ministry. We truly appreciate all the positive testimonials that have already been posted and hope others will add to them.

In last month's newsletter we reported that we were going to be upgrading our primary server. We just wanted to update you and let you know that the upgrade is complete. We also added another new server. You should see web pages loading noticeably faster now.

If you have the Gold, Silver, Bronze, or Domain website hosting package, you have your own domain name, and chances are you will or perhaps already have received emails notifying you that you need to renew your domain name. Many of these are scams to try to trick you into transferring your domain name to another registrar. We want to remind you that OurChurch.Com manages all of our members' domain names. We do the renewal and pay the renewal fee for you, so there is never a need to renew (or transfer) your domain name yourself.

Additionally, if you ever receive an email that you are unsure about, you are welcome to forward it to our Help Desk. We're here to help in any way we can.

Thanks for trusting OurChurch.Com with your website hosting. Please visit our forums and chat rooms. And don't forget to give us your feedback in the webmaster survey.

In His Service,
