Hello OurChurch.Com webmasters,

This is our first webmaster newsletter of 2009, so Happy New Year! We hope 2009 is off to a great start for you.

This is the time of year when many people set new goals and make New Year's Resolutions for themselves. We believe it's important to set new goals for your website as well, so made January New Year's Resolution Month and focused our efforts on helping you take your website to the next level this year.

Whether that next step is finally getting your own domain name, upgrading your hosting package, giving your site a fresh new look, or kicking it up to the top of the search engines - you can do it in 2009 and we can help. Read on to learn how.

In His Service,
Paul Steinbrueck

IN THIS ISSUE
=============
1) New and Improved Hosting Services
2) Login to Win
3) Blog Update - Shifting from Dreams to Goals for Your Website
4) Your Opinion Matters
5) Funny Video - New Year's Resolutions: Kid Edition
6) Love and Valentine's Day Templates Added
7) New Coupon - Only Available in This Newsletter

1) NEW AND IMPROVED HOSTING SERVICES
On January 8, we announced a whole slew of new additions and improvements to our hosting services. We renamed the Domain Hosting Package as the Starter Hosting Package. We added disk space and bandwidth to all the hosting packages while reducing prices. We introduced monthly billing and auto-renew options. To learn more about these improvements and others, read the announcement.
http://www.ourchurch.com/news/news-2009-01-08.php

You will continue in your current hosting package with the current levels of disk space, bandwidth, etc until you renew or upgrade. At that time, you will be upgraded to the new package. But you don't have to wait to renew. Renew now and we'll upgrade your account immediately. Say you've got 3 months left before your Bronze account is due for renewal. Renew for another year now and you'll get the new, bigger Bronze account for those 3 months plus the additional year.

2) LOGIN TO WIN
To encourage OurChurch.Com webmasters to develop the habit of regularly logging in to update their sites, we are running a contest in January. The NE1 site administrator who logs into their site the most days during the month of January will win a Custom Flash Header for their site (a $249 value). Additionally, you receive one entry for each day you login towards a drawing to receive NE1 Template Personalization service. So, even if you don't win it pays to login as many days as possible. See more details and the current leaders:

3) BLOG ROUND-UP - SHIFTING FROM DREAMS TO GOALS FOR YOUR WEBSITE
I hope you’ve been doing some dreaming and had a chance to imagine all your website could be in 2009. Unfortunately, unless you are an artist with a wealthy sponsor paying all your expenses to work at your own leisure, you probably have to get back to the real world - a world with limited resources and limited time.

That doesn’t mean we shelve all our dreams, but it does mean we have to consider which dreams are realistic and attainable, and what the cost of pursuing those dreams for our websites might be.

And as Christians there’s one more factor to throw in – the God factor. Sometimes God says no or wait to our dreams. And then sometimes He calls us to do things that seem unrealistic or things that we don’t have the resources for.

So, how can a web administrator know what goals to set? Here are 7 suggestions.

4) YOUR OPINION MATTERS
Did you know every month OurChurch.Com has a new survey in which you can give us your feedback and ideas? Did you know our CEO personally reviews the survey results? It's true. Your feedback, opinions, and ideas help to determine where to improve, change, or add features and services. To give us your feedback, go to your webmaster/admin page and click the link to the survey.

5) FUNNY VIDEO - NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS: KID EDITION
This short clip takes a funny look at the most common resolutions that adults make — only it's from the perspective of little kids. We've posted the HTML code so you can copy it into your website and share it with your visitors.
http://www.ourchurch.com/news/webmaster-2009-01.php

6) LOVE AND VALENTINE'S DAY TEMPLATES ADDED
We've added another 5 new NE1 templates for you to use with your website. In preparation for February we've created a Valentine's Day template as well as a scripture-based love theme. See the templates in our forums:

WEBSITE SPOTLIGHT: Faith Baptist Church – http://www.faithbc.net
-----------------
Faith Baptist Church, located in Glen Burnie, MD, just recently launched a brand new website. OurChurch.Com designed the custom CMS (http://www.ourchurch.com/design/custom-church-cms.php) site and the church's new logo. The site includes a lot of features intended to build community among the members of Faith Baptist. One of these features, which they have called FaithBook, allows members to create their own profile and interact in ways similar to the Facebook social networking site. The site also includes a podcast, online event registration, and serving opportunities board.

Hi Sheri,

You have 500 MB of space. The 206 MB of disk space used + 294 MB of disk space remaining = 500 MB. Right?
