Dear Hetzner Africa

I love Hetzner, South Africa and the WWW.

I’ve been hosting with hetzner since 2001 without a problem and have referred many, many people to you.

Suddenly, (5 years of work later) a site becomes popular and receives 1000+ unique visitors per day. A large majority of them being South African, even getting visits from Mountain View.

Problem: High cost of hosting of www.rafiq.za.net/blog locally costing morethan the monthly payment on my car.

Solution: Monetizing the blog with the likes of Google Adsense and an advertising system we’re about to roll out. Before approaching other hosting companies or moving to low-cost US servers I’d like the great Hetzner team to have a look at the statistics and organic growth of www.rafiq.za.net/blog/. Once your eyes have have reverted back to their original position please suggest the best way forward for us.

I will be publishing this email on the blog soon after sending this. Eagerly awaiting your response.

Kind Regards,
Rafiq Phillips
