There are thousands of reputable web hosts sprawled all across the world wide web, but I have decided to do all of my business with HostGator. That decision did not come easy and I have had my fair share of bad experiences with several different hosting companies, but I have been with HostGator for about a year now and they are by far the best web host I have worked with. If you are looking for good web hosting for your website, you definitely need to give them a try and here’s why.
Web hosting is a very competitive industry so it should be no surprise that all that competition has helped drop down the prices. HostGator provides a fantastic service at very low prices. If you are just starting out they have cheap shared hosting starting at just $3.96/month. Of course, you can upgrade, add more domains, and you’re monthly price will go up, but to get started it’s very reasonable and you should be able to make back what you’re spending with just a few success PeerFly affiliate campaigns :)
I use a reseller hosting plan from HostGator that costs me $24.95/month. I run all of my sites on it and my affiliate campaigns and I have not run into any issues. I plan to get my own dedicated server soon, but see no need to as long as I’m able to stay on the reseller server without any issues. The main reason that I use reseller hosting is because of all the features compared to the shared plan:
- Unlimited domains
- Unlimited cPanels (each domain has it’s own account, which makes it easy to manage)
- Unlimited features (sub domains, MySQL databases, FTP accounts, etc.)
I believe I have about 75 different domains setup on my reseller account right now, which means each one is only costing me around $0.33/month.
Before I decided to go with HostGator, I did some research on them and every single search I did came back with comments about how awesome their support was. Obviously, I am a true believer in providing the best support possible for your clients, so this stood out to me. HostGator has both phone and live chat support listed right at the top of their website, so I decided to see for myself. I opened a live chat and within a few minutes I was connected to a member of their sales team who was able to answer all of my questions. Ever since, I have not had one question that took more than an hour or so for them to answer and I constantly have questions. Honestly, they are probably the best company I have ever worked with in terms of client support.
I am an affiliate of HostGator so of course I have a coupon code :) If you sign up and use my coupon, lukepeerfly, you will get 25% off your order.
HostGator is an awesome hosting company that provides quality service at a great price. If you are at the point in your affiliate marketing career that you are ready to start building your own landing pages you will save yourself a lot of headaches if you sign up for a good hosting company the first time, rather than having to keep signing up for new companies and transferring your site files around from host to host. Of course, I am happy to help with any questions you have, but you will probably get a quicker response from the HostGator support.
