As you can probably tell by now when it comes to Affordable Hosting, I prefer HostGator. It’s a company that I’ve come to trust over the years and I use them for all of my hosting needs. Below I’m just going to rant a little with some tips. When I was starting up my company I didn’t have much time/money, but I was able to leverage HostGator’s shared hosting business plan and get everything from a website to an 866 number for roughly 15 bucks a month. (They offer a free 866 forwarding number with that plan.) As a budding new company I now had a web presence and a way for my company to reach me without giving out my cell number.
I also took this oppourtuniy to add some customers to my plan as well, giving them free startup hosting while I managed their sites. My affordable Hosting became their free startup hosting at no added cost to me/them. When they were ready to fly on their own I would transfer them off my hosting, give them my coupon codes for a great discount and do a full transfer. (They do a free transfer for those people buying new accounts.) I have yet to have a single customer complain about the caliber of service they get with the affordable hosting from a HostGator plan. When shoppping around, check them out and you’ll see what I mean. If you do pull the trigger on it, feel free to use my coupon codes on this site. The coupons will never expire and offer a better discount that the ones they provide you with.
