Well this morning I said I was going to start working on a simple SMTP extension for Magento. The weather was completely stink here in Auckland so I ended up making the ASchroder.com SMTP Pro Magento extension this afternoon you can get it from Magento Connect. It’s a development release and I’m seeking feedback on it from people willing to give it a try.

Ok, so not long after my last Free Magento Hosting competition I was approached by Richard at elief.com with an excellent offer to sponsor a new Free Magento Hosting competition. I was really amazed with the generosity shown and am excited to offer this prize to my readers. Elief are offering 1 year free hosting on their beginner reseller hosting account (that’s worth over $200!). This would allow you to run multiple Magento stores and even resell Magento stores. You can read more about the reseller hosting here.
Some of the quite cool features are the pre-configured merchant account (so that you can process your own credit card payments without Paypal or Google Checkout). Multiple IP addresses which support many different SSL domains easily and the ability to set up each store with it’s own unique cPanel, which let’s you easily resell the stores you build and host. Cool.
So what do you have to do to get your hands on this super sweet prize? Simple, tell me what innovative business you’d start on this reseller platform! So for example, you might start a completely free Magento host, or a commission based Magento host, or you may even try and do some sort of wiki-shop where anyone can add their products for sale in a sort of organic Amazon – wouldn’t that be fun?
