I got an email from HostGator yesterday alerting me to some really awesome deals for their web hosting services; for Cyber Monday, they're giving half off pretty much all their hosting plans:
- Shared hosting: As low as $4.95 Now only: $2.48
- Reseller Hosting: As low as $24.95 Now Only: $12.48
- VPS Hosting: As low as $19.95 Now Only: $9.98
- Dedicated Servers: As low as $174 Now Only $87
I've been using HostGator for a few of my less-trafficed websites for over three years now, and have had less than 10 minutes of measured downtime. I also use a cheap shared hosting plan to simply store backups of my other sites (they give you limited SSH access to cheap plans—which is awesome!).
I highly recommend HostGator; unlike most other low-cost hosts, their support team is top-notch, their plans are priced perfectly, and their servers (even for cheap shared hosting) are super-fast, compared to other hosts I've used (1&1, GoDaddy, Dreamhost, etc.).
Please consider using my HostGator affiliate link to sign up for the best deal you're ever (probably) going to get for website hosting.
This deal will only last for one day (Monday, November 27, 2011). Even if you don't sign up today, think about HostGator for your hosting needs. They're good enough that I have recommended their hosting to almost every one of my small business clients throughout the years.
