Vancouver, British Columbia – (The Hosting News) – April 14, 2008 – Provider of online IT infrastructure, PEER 1, has released the winner of its Growing Pains Free Hosting Contest, with a prize of 12 months of free managed hosting, valued at over $2,400.
Tim Mateosian, co-founder of Big Room Studios, has won a managed hosting server, which includes 1 TB of monthly data transfer and bi-weekly vulnerability scans. The open contest received more than 1,000 online entries from viewers of the premier episode of ”Growing Pains,” the company’s humorous video-short series.
Rajan Sodhi, Vice President of marketing at PEER 1 noted, ”The best thing about this contest is that it truly helps Tim solve his IT ‘growing pains’ and expand his business. Business and tech managers go through many IT challenges as their online demands grow. Sharing their stories in entertaining ways can help others navigate the complexities of running an online business.”
Headquartered in Portland, Maine, Big Room Studios specializes in offering combined online services, which primarily include web and print design, web development and IT support and consulting. Started in 2002 by Mateosian and his brother, the company now has clients throughout North America and the UK. Mateosian has been a PEER 1 customer for nearly six years and has worked in the hosting industry for more than 10 years. He has always loved computers and technology and started in the industry as a hosting reseller. The business grew to include advanced web solutions when his brother, a talented programmer, joined and created a web framework for the firm. PEER 1’s self- managed hosting is the ideal solution for this kind of programming, since the Mateosian brothers require more control over the server environment in order to run their web solutions.
Mr. Mateosian added, ”I am excited about winning the managed hosting contest. This is extremely good timing since our company is growing quickly and we were planning on expanding anyway. And I have never won anything before.”
PEER 1 will be holding a new contest, calling for contestants to create and upload their own “growing pains” video, in conjunction with the upcoming second episode of ”Growing Pains” due out in May.
