December Giveaway--7 days left to enter!

*** DEC GIVEAWAY IS EXTENDED UNTIL JAN. 8th!! Get your entries IN!***

This month's giveaway comes from Easy Shop Names.com, one of the shops of our very own AmazingArt. Amazing Arts is run by Bob, who technically lives in California, but was born and raised Louisiana, and still carries it in his heart! :)

This month Bob is offering a fabulous package deal to help you get your business or websites in order for the coming year!!

What You'll Win:

The Giveaway will be for my EasyShopNames.com full Artisan Domain Name & Support Package, including 1 year of:

  • Domain Name Registration
  • Tech Support via online Help Desk or Toll Free telephone
  • 1 business day turn-around or less for all updates (forwarding changes, etc.) - most changes made in one our or less

  • Unlimited Sub-Domains

    • Forwarding sub-domains: etsy.domain.comforwards to shopname.etsy.com
    • Hosted subdomains: site.domain.com points to IP address on web hosting provider

  • Blogger Domain Setup (blog.domain.com)(for Example, Mama's Little Monkeys blog URL is very long, so Bob shortened it to http://blog.mamaslittlemonkeys.com

  • Branded Google Apps Standard under selected domain, with:

    • Up to 50 users (less 1 for me to administer the account)
    • Google Mail/Gmail
    • Google Calendar
    • Google Docs
    • Google chat username@domain.com, including AIM support (for example, at HandmadeLouisiana, admins have emails @handmadelouisiana.com
    • Google Sites – Template drive website creation with UNLIMITED number of sites
    • much, much more

  • 1 business day turn-around or less for all updates (forwarding changes, etc.) - most changes made in one our or less

If the winner already has a domain name, then I’ll substitute the Artisan Support Package, which is all the same services and features, but just transfers an existing domain to our servers rather than registering a new domain name.
