HostMySite.com and Mozilla Celebrate Milestone of the Firefox Grassroots Community

Web hosting company HostMySite.com contributes free, managed, dedicated hosting to SpreadFirefox, the online volunteer community organized to spread the news about the Mozilla Firefox Web browser.

To celebrate the two-hundred-millionth download of the award-winning Web browser, SpreadFirefox launched the Fox Tales website (opens in new tab). The dedicated site gives users a place to share stories of how they spread the word about Firefox.

To assist the launch of this unique Web space, HostMySite.com developed and deployed a multi-server hosting setup. The load-balanced servers create a redundant and stable platform on which 50,000 simultaneous visitors can easily view the website without experiencing slow page loads.

Like Firefox, HostMySite.com relies mainly on word of mouth for business growth. Built on a foundation of 24x7x365 customer service, the Web host recognizes fellow organizations that pride themselves on providing a product praised by users.

Over 70% of new customers to HostMySite.com are referred by existing customers.

Over 200,000 Firefox fans meet at SpreadFirefox to discuss strategies and plan campaigns for spreading the word about their favorite browser.
