“Play for intergalactic respect. Play for bragging rights. Play for FREE HOSTING!” is the tagline that appears on WestHost.com’s new gaming website.
WestHost recently announced the availability of a free game on their website that allows users to win all sorts of prizes with their company.
“The idea was sparked from a combination of wanting to separate our advertising campaigns from the masses and seeing how popular gaming is within our target audience. Although we will continue to promote our products and services through specials, promotions and more traditional advertising, this represents a new phase of advertising to help promote our brand, without the pressure to signup immediately.”, said Bevan Erickson of WestHost.com
According to WestHost, the game currently has 12 levels, although more may be added (if anyone beats it). The player takes the role of a starship fighter destroying asteroids representing the “perils of web hosting” (downtime, spam, no support, etc.).
The game currently offers coupons at a number of level completions for discounts, free domain registrations, waived setup fees, free hosting and more. Coupons will probably continue to change and improve. The top score of each month will get 1 year of free hosting. Runners up will get one free month.
WestHost plans to keep “Host Wars” for at least the next few months and will continue to improve it. Depending on the popularity, we may add more games that we’ve thought about.
