I think many webmasters here would be interested to know what WHT uses for its promotion besides other websites in iNET interactive network. Do you buy advertising? Do you advertise offline? Hey, guys, give away the show, will ya!
I don't think WHT does any advertising at all. As far as I was aware, WHT grew predominately as a word of mouth forum, and was in the right place at the right time. (one of the first forums in the growing hosting industry).
And besides, I don't think you need to really do much advertising when you are in the google top 10 for the word "web hosting"
I dont really think WHT has to advertise at all. Sure, when in first started out way back before columbus sailed the ocean blue, they had to do a bit of advertising. But at this point, there are so many visitors that come here for the sake of furthering their knowledge on various things that pertain to webhosting and the industry around it.
WHT is a tool that has helped define as well as shape the hosting industry.
