About our sponsors: Bluehost

Bluehost was one of the first two sponsors on board. The reason for their speed? They not only sponsor WordCamp Calgary, but every WordCamp in Canada and the United States. You see on the sidebar how they have their own sponsorship level? Pillar? That’s because that’s what they are to the WordPress community. A successful WordCamp needs three things: people who want to share their knowledge and experience; people who want to absorb knowledge and experience; and sponsors who help to stick it all together. I hereby dub Bluehost to be “gluehost”.

Bluehost has been providing quality web hosting solutions to businesses and individuals since 1996. That’s since before many of you were even “on the Internet”. I didn’t even have my first persistent, broadband connection for another two years…maybe three. Before there was YouTube (by nine years), before there was Google (by two years), and just shortly after eBay became a thing, there was Bluehost. They’re one of the top twenty hosts in the world, serving up close to 2 million domains in conjunction with sister companies HostMonster and FastDomain.

With shared hosting from US$4.95 per month, and dedicated hosting from only US$74.99 per month, Bluehost is well worth your look for your hosting needs.

Thanks Bluehost! We greatly appreciate your ongoing commitment, not only to our WordCamp, but to all of those awesome WordCamps that organizers around Canada and the USA put their hearts and time into. You really help us to make them great.
