Banner guidelines and costing

All popular Internet media formats are accepted including jpg, png, gif and swf. The only real restrictions on the banners themselves is we ask that you keep the file size as small as possible (circa 40k), and not to use bright and/or flashing colours which might detract from the user experience.

Banners can only be accepted from companies/individuals who offer products and/or services related to hosting a web presence using IIS (from firewalls, software, hosting, to server hardware). All banners submitted to the general rotation are charged on a CPM basis (cost per thousand impressions), custom campaign prices are based on time and materials.
