Double Your Gold!

Greetings OurChurch.Com webmasters,

You can also view this newsletter on the web at

1) Double Your Gold
2) OurChurch.Com Hits the Road
3) Viruses, Worms, and Spyware
4) New "Website Spotlight" Feature

OurChurch.Com is doubling the disk space for the Gold package from 200 MB to 400 MB. Anyone who upgrades to the Gold package will receive 400 MB of space immediately. If you currently have the Gold package your account will be bumped up to 400 MB when you renew. Keep in mind that you can renew or add months to your term of service at any time. So, if you currently have the Gold package and want us to bump up your account to 400 MB, renew now and we'll increase your disk space as soon as we receive your payment.

OurChurch.Com CEO and co-founder Paul Steinbrueck will be in Denver, CO and Cheyenne, WY with his family July 23 to August 1. He would enjoy the opportunity to visit with some OCC webmasters, whether it’s just for a few minutes, for a meal, to worship with your church, to speak to a group about the use of the Internet in Christian ministry, or if you'd like to be a tour guide for Paul, his wife and two children for an afternoon. If you live in Denver, Cheyenne, or somewhere in between and would like to visit with Paul please let us know.

Viruses, worms, and spyware continue to affect many of our webmasters. Even though these issues are not directly related to OurChurch.Com’s website services, we want to do what we can to help our webmasters avoid these destructive dangers. We have posted a new message on our forums about an on-line spyware detector that’s effective and easy to use and another message with tips for Outlook users. You can read them in our General Website and Computer Tips and Suggestions forum. The entire OCC community would appreciate any comments and insight you can add.

This month we are adding a new feature to our monthly webmaster newsletter called "Website Spotlight." In this feature we will introduce you to a person or ministry that hosts their website at OurChurch.Com. Some websites we will spotlight because of the unique way they use their website. Some we will spotlight because of the person or ministry itself and the unique way they are serving God. The websites we spotlight will not necessarily be the biggest, the best, or the most popular, but we hope there is something about them that will inspire you as you serve as webmaster for your ministry.

Thanks for trusting OurChurch.Com with your website hosting. Please visit our forums and chat room. Let us know what OurChurch.Com has done for you and your ministry in our testimonials topic.

In His Service,

"I thought my pc was 'clean'... Within minutes of the 'spychecker' scan it detected what was described as 'one dangerous programme, NavExcell.' It offered to delete, I accepted and it was gotten rid of instantly."

BEACON tip o' the month

Try to limit the length of your pages to 3 screens or less. Usually, it's better to break a page up into multiple pages rather than have one longer page.
Website Spotlight

The AME Herald is a weekly online publication that is lovingly maintained by webmaster Rev. Denise Rogers. The site is packed with interesting features like international news, up-to-date African Methodist Episcopal (AME) news, and general interest items like gospel singer profiles and youth messages. Rev. Rogers uses the Silver hosting package and transfers her custom HTML files each week by publication deadline.

The AME Herald website is clean-looking without distractions. Site elements blend nicely with each other. Articles are timely and easy to read, and contact information is prominently displayed. We commend Rev. Rogers and her daughter Danielle, Editor-in-Chief, and thank them for the honor of being their web host.
OurChurch.Com's Webmaster Newsletter is sent to everyone who has an active website hosted at OurChurch.Com. If you wish to cancel your site, you can do that on your Webmaster page. After canceling your site you will no longer receive OCC Webmaster News.

If you've forgotten about your website address, username, password, etc., you can Request a Report and that information will automatically be emailed to you.
