This shopping season, while others are asking you to take a decision on selecting your web host in a hurry – I would advise you to stop for a while and think over it once before taking this crucial decision. Don’t get confused by all the discounts that are being offered by different web hosts. Read this article and understand their regular renewal rates and fine print to decide the best one for you.
Don’t worry if you have missed the deals on web hosting on this Black Friday, you can always go for it on the coming Cyber Monday.
Whether you already have a hosting plan and planning to switch to a new web host or if you are planning to take your blogging experience to the next level by hosting a blog on WordPress, Joomla or any other Content Management System, then this is the best time of the year to do that.
You can get a discount anywhere between 60-90% at the top five and well known web hosts.
If you have been there in the blogosphere for some time, then I assume that you would have heard of all these names: HostGator, DreamHost, BlueHost (1and1 and GoDaddy) which are considered as the benchmark websites among hosting providers.
There are of course some differences among the pricing and the features offered by them. So, you certainly do need to have a look on what all is being offered by them, and what all do you actually need.
For example, if you are planning to host a single domain (may be with some sub-domains) then any basic plan from the providers below is sufficient for you.
If you are planning to setup multiple websites then go for the intermediate plans.
And if you are planning to earn your bread and butter from the website business, then I would recommend business plans to you (which offer unlimited space, bandwidth, domains support, SEO services, SSL support, domain privacy and many more things).
Just have a look at what these web hosts are offering this shopping season and what you will be paying after the honeymoon period.
