When my husband and I were considering how to handle the domain hosting for MoreSo, there were a few options. We could host it through WordPress - either for free, or for a nominal fee have a customised MoreSo address. The third option was to pay a domain hosting company to do the job. The cost was not huge, but MoreSo is not generating revenue. We decided to pay a small fee to WordPress to do the hosting and give us a customised MoreSo address. MoreSo would then move to self-hosting when it was established.
Then we realised that we were approaching this the wrong way. We needed to do as much business as possible the MoreSo Way. So we put on our MoreSo Mindset, started afresh and found ThinkHost! Like us, ThinkHost is passionate about doing business in a way that creates More Social Good. ThinkHost specialises in hosting solutions for non-profits, community groups, and small and medium sized businesses, worldwide. It says that it has an ‘unwavering vision of environmental sustainability and social change’.
To our way of thinking, using ThinkHost was a perfect match for MoreSo. We were able to get domain hosting at a very reasonable rate. This allowed us to brand ourselves as 'moreso.org' from the outset. And we would be creating More Social Good by supporting ThinkHost's 'do good' work. Click on the ThinkHost icon pictured above to go to its website and find out more about ThinkHost and its extensive ‘do good’ activities. You will also find the same icon in our website footer.
This experience brought to mind Simon Sinek's famous TED talk: "People don't buy WHAT you do, they buy WHY you do it". So true! And like Simon says, we happily paid for this hosting option because we share the same values as ThinkHost.
We also love ThinkHost because it runs an affiliate program, which illustrates how you can easily create More Social Good in business. This program works very simply. For every customer that MoreSo refers to ThinkHost, ThinkHost will pay MoreSo a commission. ThinkHost also makes small commission payments for second-tier referrals.
So by using ThinkHost’s services, you are getting domain hosting at a competitive rate and you are creating More Social Good by supporting ThinkHost and MoreSo’s social good activities. You also have the opportunity to participate in ThinkHost’s affiliate program yourself, if you refer others to ThinkHost. What’s not to like? There’s just one condition, if you would like to support MoreSo in this way you need to access ThinkHost’s site by clicking on any of our ThinkHost icons - so that ThinkHost can track the origin of the referral.
If you do decide to use ThinkHost, please let us know. MoreSo is keen to explore how we can create More Social Good by sharing how we 'do good' in business.
