Hostgator Cyber Monday! [Closed]
Update: The doors have closed on this offer. Nevertheless, I personally think Hostgator is excellent value even at the normal price so if you’re still looking for a great webhosting company you can still try them. They have a 45-day money-back guarantee so you could just give ‘em a whirl.
CYBER MONDAY IS LIVE NOW!
Okay, so here’s what happened. Hostgator was so happy with its Black Friday promotion that it has decided to re-open its
That will be 5pm Monday to 4.59pm Tuesday Australian Eastern Daylight Saving time, midnight to midnight Monday, Houston time, 6am Monday to 5.59am Tuesday, GMT
As someone who uses the web a lot and spent a lot of time finding the best value webhosting – excellent, reliable and cheap – I’m constantly recommending Hostgator to my friends and acquaintances. A lot of people who would like to have a website think getting on the web is difficult and/or expensive. So here’s how much it costs:
for one year from Crazydomains.com.au:
.com.au : $12
.net.au, .org.au : $8
.com : $9
.mobi : $18 (if you want a domain that’s identified as specifically for mobile devices)
These domain name prices are possibly the cheapest in the world. They’re even cheaper than the cheap US-based companies offer (e.g. GoDaddy). Of course CrazyDomains have a full range of other cheap domain extensions including .asia, .co.uk, .co.nz, .biz, .info etc.
Compare these prices with Malcolm Turnbull’s friends at melbourneit.com.au who charge $99 for minimum 2 years for .com.au; $75 for one year for .com, .net, .org; $102.50/year for .mobi; $75/year for .info.
Note: For some .au extensions you may need some evidence of your organisation’s details, like an ABN.
from as little as $2.48/month from Hostgator (if you sign up on “Cyber Monday“) which is about A$30/year. To get this price you sign up for three years and it’s still only $90. Even if you miss the special promotion that’s only $180 for world’s best hosting for three years! The most important things are unlimited including disk space, bandwidth, emails, etc. etc.
Hostgator comes with free Site Builder software. I personally recommend using the automatic one-click install free blogging software, WordPress. You can choose from hundreds of themes that look like a website, not a blog, particularly magazine-style themes and just fill in the blanks. Hostgator hosting also has many other automatic one-click install applications you can use and there are heaps of free plug-ins and widgets available for WordPress.
So your website doesn’t have to cost you anything at all apart from your time.
One of the advantages of having your own website or domain name is that you have your own custom email address which inspires confidence and looks really professional, unlike email@example.com, say, or firstname.lastname@example.org In fact you can have as many email addresses as you like – one for each member of the family, for example, or for each member of staff, for every student, or for every secret identity, alias, pseudonym and nom de guerre you like to use.
A website can be for anything – business, personal, your own blog, for career progression (cv, résumé, portfolio, testimonials, documents etc.), your hobby, your club or association.
The one thing you need to know is that if you want to be taken seriously these days it’s almost mandatory that you have a website you can point people to. People don’t check the phone book any more. They google you.
with your own domain name,
hosted by Hostgator which I think is the world’s best hosting,
all for $42 a year (that’s about 80¢ a week), or 11¢ a day)
as long as you get your hosting right now on Cyber Monday.
[Sir Roger wouldn't recommend anything he didn't use and trust himself - and yes, there's a small benefit for him if you sign up, but a far bigger one for you and as a friend - well, I wouldn't be a friend if I didn't tell you about the opportunity so you had the chance to make a choice.]
