Celebrating six million sites: Competition entries, winners and a 'Special Award for Outstanding Quirkiness'

Pssst. Guess what?

We hate to bring the cheese, but we’re pretty excited to reach the six-million milestone and would like to thank every one of you for helping us to create the most vibrant website community we know of - we can’t wait to see what the next six million sites are made of...

But enough of that! To celebrate the occasion we ran a competition last week to give away a Macbook, iPhone5, iPad and a subscription to Moonfruit for six million years.

Throughout the week we asked you to respond creatively to questions on Twitter to enter - check out all the activity on #moonfruit6m. And for the grand MacBook prize we asked you to build new sites. Here’s how it went...

Win a MacBook Air, an iPhone 5, an iPad or a six-million-year subscription to Moonfruit*

#moonfruit6m competition

Update: Competition now closed

To celebrate hitting six million sites built with Moonfruit (at 5,984,669 sites and counting we’re hoping this isn’t too wild an ambition) we’re giving away a Macbook, iPhone5, iPad and a subscription to Moonfruit for six million years*.

Throughout the week we’ll tell you how to enter the competition on Twitter. We won’t give it all away now, but let’s just say we’ll be asking you to get a little creative with your entries. Nothing too taxing though.

The grand prize – the mighty Macbook – will go to a randomly-selected site built between now and the six-millionth* - so it’s open to those of you who already have a site with us and want to build a new one, as well as new sign-ups (and the Twitterphobes who miss out on the rest of the competition). So get building now!

Build a site, win a MacBook Air!

Follow us on Twitter @Moonfruit for updates and callouts throughout the week. Oh, and don’t forget to use the #moonfruit6m hashtag in your entry tweets.

We’re pretty chuffed to be reaching this milestone and would like to take the opportunity to thank you all for choosing Moonfruit for your online projects and ventures. We touched on the variety and sheer inventiveness of your products and pursuits in our 2012 Retrospective but, to reiterate, keep those hedgehog sanctuary sites and shops selling ‘fish and chip shoes’ coming!

Get tweeting and win big!

Update: Competition now closed

Final creative prize for a Macbook Pro

Thank you all for making this competition so special. The creative entries have really blown us away and we'll be continuing to pick through them all, post up the best and create a gallery to pay our respects for all those who have entered. (And maybe a few discretionary prizes too ending Friday 10th July 3pm BST).

But we thought we'd end this crazy Twitter promotion with one more Macbook Pro prize. And this will go to the creator of the best website on Moonfruit.com. Anyone can enter from new or old customers, friends or foes, and you certainly don't have to enter if you don't want to ;-).

The website contest will run until 17th July (next Friday 3pm BST) at which point we'll pick and announce the winner.

Judging a website is going to be tricky, so when you enter your website we want you to tell us why it's special or innovative and why you think it should win. All entries should be as comments on this blog and we'll pick the winner from there. We'll pick the site that is most true to its stated objective and inspires us as a great example of what a website can do. Build it about something you're passionate about and are interested in.

Thanks again for all your support and may the Fruit be with you. Always.


  1. Create a website on www.moonfruit.com
  2. Post it on this blog with your reasons for why it should be picked
  3. One website entry per person (and one post please!)
  4. Winner will be posted to this blog on 17th July at 3pm BST (GMT+1)
  5. Good luck!

Celebrate 10 years of Moonfruit and win a MacBook Pro

To celebrate Moonfruit's 10th birthday we are giving away 10 new Macbook Pro's, one each day for 10 days! If you've never seen one of these in real life, they are just as svelte and beautifully crafted as they look in the pictures, we can't keep our hands off them! (I'm using one now, but not one of the competition ones obviously ;-) )

Check the full details of the competition at http://www.moonfruit.com/macbook-pro.html and follow us @moontweet to find out who the winners are each day.

We wouldn't be here today without all you wonderful people building websites with us and allowing us to support you in your online adventures. So a special thanks to the 2m+ of you who've built a site with us!

Happy tweeting!

Why are members good for growing my site?

Members are people that have a relationship with your site, including their own login. They are users who have taken the step from being a visitor to signing up and creating their own account with you. Members can be advocates of your site and your services, along with helping you grow your site by telling other people about you (although they can also be detractors, so make sure you treat them nice!).

HTML widget - what have you found?

So, it's been a month or so since we released the alpha (early testing) version of the HTML widget. We've had nearly 250 people download and try out the widget in our website builder from our site labs.moonfruit.com, so we know you've been using it. But the thing we want to know is what have you been using it for?
