ZAP-Hosting Contribution Program

Contribution Program 2.0


Here at ZAP-Hosting, we believe in the power of our Community, thus we are pleased to run our very own ZAP-Hosting Community Contributions program. This program enables our ZAP Community to produce high-quality, practical and easily accessible guides to support a wide range of topics and help out other fellow people. The program also supports creativity from our Community through the creation of unique Blog posts and content.

All content produced under this program provides money rewards as an awesome benefit for successfully contributing! We offer reward payouts through PayPal and as credit for your ZAP-Hosting account. Rewards are provided as the final step once your contribution is approved by our ZAP-Hosting Contributions Team and is ready to be published.

You can view more information about rewards as well as the criteria used for evaluating rewards via the Contribution Rewards guide.

Our program currently accepts contributions in English.

Provision of Temporary Services

On request and if necessary, we may provide services that are needed to create a guide or blog post for a limited period of time. Through server provisioning, we want to improve accessibility to necessary products to allow people to write about topics for which they may not have an active server with us.

You can request a service through the respective submission process that you are using, under one of the questions.

The provisioning depends on a few factors. For example, the activity of your ZAP-Hosting account is evaluated, how active you have already been in terms of the contribution program, and whether provisioning by us is necessary for the planned content. If a service is provided, it will be made available to you free of charge for a limited period of time. The provision is limited to a few days depending on the scope of the content and the required service.
