Affinity is a hosting provider with a difference, it's a provider that rewards you for helping other customers. It works a little like this; for basic support queries, we tend to direct customers to our knowledge base and community forums. Now, this only happens when it's a problem that doesn't require us to fix it (or isn't urgent), so you don't need to worry about not being able to get in touch for important issues.

Now, if a customer ends up getting support from another customer of our services (either via the forums, or by marking a user submitted knowledge base article as "helpful"), we give the user who helped some points. These points accumulate over time and every six months, we convert those points in to cold hard cash and reward our customers with a payment in return for their efforts. Not credit towards service, but money, so you can buy your own reward.

However, what if a user wants to use their points for something in the more immediate future? That's easy enough, customers can redeem their points at any time for upgrades and extensions to service, with a full list of what you can get shown in our rewards section. Customers can also earn points by referring new customers to our service, the amount of points you'll earn depends on the service a customer signs up to however.

You'll get access to a Linux based environment (hosted in Europe) that supports PHP, Python, Ruby and Perl; as well as access to MySQL, PostGreSQL, CouchDB and MongoDB databases. On top of this, you'll get SSH access so you can work in your development environment to your content.

On top of this, you'll be able to take advantage of our redundant nameservers and 100% uptime guarantee. We've also got a 30 day money back guarantee, but given it's just a penny to start, what do you have to lose?

For now, there's no control panel (we're still building this, it's currently in testing and expected to be in beta in early June), but we'll be on hand 24/7 to help you with anything that you're unable to take care of yourself.

Our shared hosting is fully managed, this means if you need help installing a script, patching your forum installation or just need help with your web site in general, get in touch with us, we'll see what we can do to help you.
