We're in partnership with mint-space.com and we offer web hosting through our store for $30/year ($10 goes to Linux Mint).
We're also talking to goDaddy.com at the moment and we might form a partnership --> lower prices for Linux Mint users and $15 for Linux Mint every time somebody buys something from them. It's not finalized yet.
What is said in the homepage though? It seems weird that this would appear there.. I would expect that kind of things to be in the store or on our website.. not within the distro itself.
Its on that page with the flash (?) animation - but I just clicked a link and I might have ended up in the store on line - not off line as I presumed - I always use a blank start page and noscript + adblock for serious use - different look ...
Don't fix it if it ain't broken, don't break it if you can't fix it
