We as an independent new school publishing house do this for all our projects since the beginning of the same month.

Accepting donations has a long tradition, not only spanning the web but also for the first project we/I did back in the days: When cipha.net launched in late 2001, due to the fact that it was a non-commercial project, I as a writer found that it was a legitimate way to “earn” money via PayPal.
Things didn’t work out the way I hoped, but PayPal is still accepted there as on other older projects I did, e.g. zockerseele.com, our video games news site which still is alive and kicking today.
After that, there was a huge time gap.
In late 2012/early 2013 we also started to support Flattr, not only because it’s a great European idea and we wanted to show respect for this neat sharing-&-caring-system, but also because it is more subtle than these (often) very annoying banners hanging around on all of those websites in general.
And yeah, maybe we were also infected by the Bitcoin-Hype 2013 which will probably never happen again, but we also think it’s simply just a good thing to have a reliable cryptocurrency in existence;
it’s for the hackers and us cyberpunks as well as the whole Internet a very very interesting way of payment and we thought it is finally the time to show some respect as well.
Besides Flattr, right now the following projects support Bitcoins and we hope you will join the game too:
* aethyx.eu – Independent Semantic Online Publishing. Made in Europe.
* zockerseele.com – an independent video games weblog which started in 2005
* gizmeo.com – an independent gadget weblog
* jpcars.de – source about Japanese cars
* cipha.net – an intergalactic anthology antiquity
We included small buttons everywhere Bitcoin payments/donations are possible. And this will definitely be the case at least until 2033 when (theoretically) all 21 million bitcoins have been created.
Who knows what will happen after that. When Philospherstones (PHS) will be the next big thing tomorrow we would have no big problem to support that concept too! ^^
Fun fact: Neither Apple, nor Google or Microsoft are accepting Bitcoins yet. So we are even ahead of them. o.O N1ce.
Please donate! We love you! ♥
Only the bestest,

First of all: Happy New Year, of course!
We hope you enjoyed the few days you had and are ready for what lies ahead of you. You probably should.
We are still interested in convincing you to join us and our small & young team as a customer!
So, what we did first this year was to change our offer for your own WordPress webhosting with us. For the better. ^^
As you may have already read, we made some postings about this new adventure. Maybe this was not clear enough, which was our fault. Sorry!
Here comes the definitive brand new proposal for you, you certainly won’t regret it:
===THE AETHYX.COM WORDPRESS WEBHOSTING PACKAGE===
* 1 domain name of your choice for free
* 5GB webspace (NEW!)
* Unlimited traffic
* 50 Email accounts with Email-Spamfilter (NEW!)
* 10 subdomains (NEW!)
* newest version of WordPress, the state of the art CMS, preinstalled (1 MySQL database included, of course)
* choose up to 10 plugins you like from here: https://aethyx.eu/eshop/ OR choose up to ten from http://wordpress.org/plugins/. We configure anything and make them run
* installation of your own custom theme from inside your new WordPress OR choose one from http://wordpress.org/extend/themes/
* installation of your own independent counter for free (see expCounter for details). If you prefer Piwik, we can install that too, but it’s more restrictive in counting visitors
* fast & reliable servers located in Germany
* servers are 100% powered from renewable energy ressources
* 1 cron job included (to be fair, not from within your webspace directory, but from your web URL) (NEW!)
* brand new SSL certificate 99€/domain per year or 159€ for 2 years OR, if you already have one, this will cost 30€/year for installation and maintaining
* but: SSL over proxy is included for free (NEW!)
* price: 5€/month (terminable to the end of any month)
As you can see, we pimped everything and you will not pay one more cent for it! 🙂 The most interesting part for you will be that the webspace alone was increased by 400%! Yay!
As already stated: This offer will end as soon as 10 new customers are found. So don’t hesitate, just drop us a line: info[at]aethyx.eu!
Stay true, stay sharp.
All the best,
the aethyx staff
