    IMHO you are asking for a lot if you really expect someone to offer two years of hosting for 5 banner ads. That might be 2 hours of work if you work slow and two years of hosting easily can be between $500 and $1000 worth of product

    I understand that as a start up yourself you want to maximize your exposure but this was pretty rude in how you went about stating it, not to mention the fact that as a startup yourself (or it appears to be from your 4 posts and under construction webpage) you haven't really built much of a reputation or portfolio yet. You cant go from nothing to huge enterprise overnight. In fact, as a small business you typically take on the smaller clients and grow with them.

    Include as much details as you can about your company when sending PM. Thanks.
    You might receive a better response if you first posted details about your company. Who are you, what are your credentials, why should this big host with a client base of 2500+ trust you with their design needs when they probably already have a design team/person that they like and trust. How long have you been doing graphic design? Etc etc etc.

    WHT is a great place to learn, grow, and enjoy yourself. But it is also a community and it would be nice if we all tried to respect each other a bit here.
