Happy Thanksgiving!

Even though there’s no Black Friday going down here in Asia, I just stumbled over two great promotions.


The guys from Hostgator announced their best deal in 8 years of hosting.

Hostgator is the host of my choice. I host all my sites with them.

Hostgator provides high levels of uptime (I never noticed any of my sites being offline so far) and an easy-to-use control panel to manage your sites. Their support is world class. At any time of the day and at any time of the year, there are dozens of technicians on stand-by, available on the phone or support chat.

The promotion:

The Black Friday promo starts at 12:00 AM Friday November 26th CST (-6 GMT) and will run until 11:59PM CST (-6 GMT) 11/26/2010.

  • Hostgator offers 50% OFF EVERYTHING From 12:00AM CST – 5AM CST
  • Hostgator offers 80% OFF EVERYTHING From 5AM – 9AM CST WHILE SUPPLIES LAST (first come, first receive; so definitely don’t miss out!)
  • From 9AM – 11:59PM CST OR after 80% OFF accounts have sold out, Hostgator will continue to offer 50% OFF EVERYTHING

This applies to ALL Accounts and ALL Term Lengths. For example, you could get 3 years of hosting for $35.64.

Which plan to get?

The discount applies to all of Hostgators plans (Shared, Reseller, VPS – Hosting, Dedicated Servers).

For 90% of you, the “Baby Plan” of Hostgators Shared Hosting – service is the best choice. It allows you to have unlimited sites, unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth.

I wouldn’t limit myself to the Hatchling-plan which allows only one site. Don’t bother with anything like Dedicated Servers or dedicated SSL & IP if you are just starting out.

GoDaddy just announced a pretty good promo too. From 11/26-11/29 (or after 10,000 redemptions – whatever comes first) you can buy .COM domains for 5$.

While not being as insane as the Hostgator promotion, it’s still pretty good if you have been thinking about picking some domains up. Unfortunately, I got 3 domains this week before finding out about this promotion.

I thought this promo might be of interest for some of my readers. If you don’t have a hosting account yet, I’d recommend that you get it today. Hosting is one of the few expenses that you have when you’re starting out blogging or online marketing.

Unfortunately, making money online doesn’t happen overnight. The sooner you start, the sooner you will succeed. (If you don’t know where and how to start, check out this post.)

If I find any other deals that could be of interest for you, I’ll update the post.
