Devils Workshop Completes 2 Years! Join The Celebration!

Update: Entracard round is closed now. You can still enter for free domain registration & hosting round. All results will be declared on 25th June. Sorry for delay…


Today we are celebrating second anniversary of Devils Workshop. Started as a hobby, over the time this workshop has become my source of living.

Devils workshop owes its success to all of you but there are some people without whom things would have been harder. Below are the names and roles of some special devils.


  • Tanmay and Mayank (blog link), moderators and co-owners of Devils Workshop orkut community. They blogged here apart from me. These guys will be receiving 1 year rapidshare premium account sponsored by Tejas Dave, a security expert from India. If you are also interested in joining Devils Workshop as writer check this article.
  • Guarav, Pavan and Praveen will get a link to their blog in blogroll (at the bottom). Please do not confuse this with link-exchange. Guys you do not need to link back to this blog from your blog. These three are chosen for their valuable comments on posts at Devils Workshop. Coincidently these three are also among top 5 commentators here. Rest two are Adi Gosavi who doesn’t own a blog and Johnson who is already there in blogroll.

Now its party time…

  • Entracard 250 Credits: 1 random reader will get 250 entrecard credits. If you use entrecard just post a comment with “I want entrecard credit” in it and you will be counted in for entrecard draw. Draw will be held on 16 June, 12PM, IST. A user will be picked randomly by Anil Wadghule, a ruby gem himself!
  • Free domain and wordpress hosting for two: Self-hosted wordpress is the best way to blog (seriously) but it requires some $$$ for domain and good web-hosting service like dreamhost. So two of our readers will get free domain registration and hosting space from us. Also, if they want they will be provided all the technical support for their wordpress maintenance. I, personally feel this is most exciting offer from us so rather going for random draw, post via comments the very purpose of your blog. Two persons will be selected by Darnell Clayton and Thilak. Submission is open till 16th June. Result will be declared till 20th June as per the convenience of our judges. I am yet to get their approvals and time-slots.
  • Advertise for $1 on 100,000 pages: We run six 125×125 image ad slots in sidebar where each one is priced at $10/month. Now as part of our celebration, two slots will be given for $1 and $2 price for a month (~100,000 page views). Slots are given on first-come-first-serve basis. So rush to advertise on 100,000 pages for just $1. Of course, your site must not include porn, drugs or any sort of illegal content.

If anything is unclear, please ask via comments only. In case, you like to sponsor a gift for our readers, please contact us.

Thank you all once again… πŸ™‚

Devi June 14, 2008

Congrats Rahul.

Pavan Kumar June 15, 2008


First of all, congrats on completing two successful years.

I would not have come here and missed this chance if you have had not backlinked me [currently busy with exams]. Thanks for link and adding to blogroll.

I want free domain and hosting

Reason: Though I blog on a domain, you might be knowing that its a free service [free domain + hosting]. The free service is offered by hyperwebenable [thankful to them], and they have moved their servers many times. As you have noticed, my site will be down some times and also performing slow. Main thing there I feel is that it is not guaranteed. Due to large number of users, the server is getting slow day by day. You might also be knowing that I am not much into monetizing and in current state I can’t afford for my own domain and hosting. It would be a great help if I am selected for this grand prize.

Gaurav June 20, 2008

Rahul, I am too in search for host for another domain I own, thats going to be more of a personal and biz blog, would remain with blogger for as much time as possible πŸ˜› this can be called devotion, or respect to my first blogging platform or whatever but I just love blogger(atleast for my first blog)

I have already enquired you about the free hosts ( in case I don’t win the contest ) So please consider both of my requests( review about free host and the contest :P)

adi June 23, 2008

congratulations rahul mate! i missed birthday of DW πŸ™ but be sure my wishes always with u πŸ™‚

Rahul Bansal June 24, 2008
