A friend of mine is a member of the web hosting company ThinkHost’s affiliate program. Today he received his affiliate commission – from DreamHost!
The only message in the PayPal payment was:
Thank you for your continued support! Sincerely, The Happy ThinkHost Affiliate Team P.S. The reason this is coming from firstname.lastname@example.org is because ThinkHost has merged with DreamHost! Don’t worry, absolutely nothing is changing!
ThinkHost was one the first web hosts to brand itself as a green web host, offering carbon-neutral hosting powered 100% by wind and solar energy. As a gimmick they also arrange to have a tree planted for each of their clients.
ThinkHost hosts 3646 domains according to WebHosting.info – compared to Dreamhost’s 849,711 domains.
Has anyone seen this merger/acquisition announced anywhere?
