Write For Us

In time and with some luck, we hope that HostBot will be a useful resource for all manner of web hosting topics including new reviews and thoughtfully-written articles that are interesting and useful to our readers.


With that faraway goal in mind, we warmly welcome guest authors who would like to contribute articles on the following topics :


Topics Areas of Interest

Case Studies

Your web hosting experience with a particular web host has been covered on HostBot. This should not merely be rants of inadequate customer support received and instead offer an insightful commentary e.g. how a particular web hosting issue was resolved.

Example:

  • A guest author has been with a web host for some time and has recently encountered some problems which he feels have not be adequately addressed by customer support. He emails the CEO and receives a speedy resolution.

Culture & Management

We are also interested in articles that highlight the culture and management of a web hosting company including interviews or other similar personal communications.

Example:

  • If you are a former (or present) employee of a web hosting company, we would be happy to hear of your experiences. All contributor identities will be withheld if requested.

  • Other interesting articles might include topics like how some web hosts are able operate well remotely without a proper HQ like Arvixe and Site5 or relevant in-depth technical pieces e.g. how a web host's datacenters addresses energy wastage.

Quirky Stuff

Articles on web hosting related topics that come from original research or personal insight that are entertaining and offer light-hearted reading for our visitors.

Example:

  • Did you know that HostGator got its name because its founder came across a blue alligator chewing on a broken server while going for his morning jog on Christmas Day? Not true of course but anecdotes or stories like these are often entertaining and offer our our readers a few laughs.

Promotions

If you or your startup wishes to offer promotions, we would be more than happy to help you reach a wider audience with our site.
