It's hard to believe that 2014 is almost over, and with that comes the first annual 'Provider of the year' polling. We've seen some great up and comers this year that have been making a splash in the industry as well as have been treated by the many tried and true established options as well. Although there are many great and solid hosting options, only one can be named the top provider of 2014. The rules are simple and straight forward, there is no need for this to be complicated. If your account was created before right now, you can vote. If your account was created after right now, you can not vote. You have 5 points, you can assign them as you see fit. For example: Host A - 3 points Host B - 1 point Host C - 1 point or any variation of the above. 1 point to 5 hosts, or 5 points to 1 host. They're your points, assign them however you wish. Out of votes but still want to show your support? Honorable Mentions will also be accepted. The top 5 Honorable Mention providers will receive a shout-out in the announcement thread!" The voting officially ends on December 31st at 11:59PM (EST). Any vote casted after this time will not be counted. The winner will be announced within the following day. Q.) I own multiple brands, will votes between them all be grouped towards the one parent? A.) No. Each individual brand will be counted separately. Q.) Can I ask customers for votes on social media? A.) Yes, of course. That's fine. This comes but once a year so feel free to ask for support from your customer-base to be crowned the 'top provider of 2014' Q.) What do I get if my company wins? A.) Bragging rights for an entire year of being voted the top provider! Okay, how about one free 125X125 banner ad for six months (Cash Value: $270). Don't have a 125X125 banner ad? No worries, I'll throw in $100 towards media creation for the designer of your choice and a custom title under your name that proudly proclaims you were the vpsBoard 2014 provider of the year (Cash value: Priceless) Q.) Can providers vote for themselves? A.) That's just tacky. I'm going to have to say.. 'No'. Questions? Let me know and I'll add the question and answer to the section above.
