You’ve been asking us for the ability to auto-renew domain names, and now you can!

When we sent out the email notice of the availability of the new option we also mentioned that everyone who switched to automatic domain renewal would be eligible to win a free year of hosting.

Well we’ve chosen two winners, and they are Rodrigo Sandoval from Santiago, Chile and Bruce Roeser from Florida. Congratulations, gentlemen, and thanks for using WinHost!
