Top 10 Web Hosting – Plus a GoDaddy Promo Code!

Top 10 Web Hosting – Plus a GoDaddy Promo Code!

Our 2018 Rankings Are In!

Our exhaustive testing and review process is complete and we officially have created our top 10 list of the best hosting companies. Our methodology hasn’t changed. In fact, it’s gotten bigger. Thanks to a GoDaddy promotion earlier this year, we were able to set up an even bigger network of test sites across a range of web hosting servers. We actually ended up using a2hosting for the bulk of our services (click here to view discounts). Our network has over 200 websites or varying size and content, all designed to test the speed and reliability of web hosting companies.

More About Our GoDaddy Promo Codes:

For those of you asking, what we did was we registered new .COM domain names for 99 cents at GoDaddy (thanks to the promo code we mentioned!), and then transferred them to other hosting providers that allowed us to transfer for free. You could do this with 50 domain names and only spend $50! The extra domains definitely helped with creating a better range of results for us to examine and report to you.

While our tests aren’t 100% reflective of a web host, our sample sizes are the … Read the rest

The Top Domain Registrars For Renewals As Well As Renewal Coupons

The Top Domain Registrars For Renewals As Well As Renewal Coupons

Sure, you can snatch up a 99 cent domain name, or even a free one if you purchase a web hosting plan (most companies will include a free domain name). But once that first year passes, you’ll be stuck paying the regular rates…unless you use a domain registrar that offers renewal coupons or other special offers to save you money.

Here are our Top Ten Domain Registars For Renewals, as well as Renewal Coupon Code Websites:

  1. GoDaddy

    – A quick google search will turn up lots of websites offering godaddy renewal coupon codes. As you approach the 1-year mark, the company will also email you offers to renew your domain early. You can also forgo their tempting “99 Cents for the first year” and use a 30% off promo code that you can use for multiple years, which will save you more money overall.

  2. Register.com

    – The not-so-well-known domain registrar will also email you custom discount codes to try and entice you into renewing early. These offers come once a month for the six-months before your domain is scheduled to expire (or auto-renew, depending on your settings). The discount is usually only about 15% off, however.

  3. Namecheap.com

How Much Should You Pay For A GoDaddy Domain Name? (Plus Coupon Codes!)

How Much Should You Pay For A GoDaddy Domain Name? (Plus Coupon Codes!)

The domain name is more or less the face the company in today’s world. Every single hour there are more than thousands of people entering the world of internet for the first time. This brings forth the need for companies to increase their efforts in reaching out to the mass. Domain names should be short yet should contain all that the company stands for. The domain name ‘goal.com’ can be taken as an example, as soon as a football fan unaware of the sports news outlet types goal, the website pops up. And after that it depends on the quality of the content in the website if it is enough to hold the fan. With this website offering free membership, that is one potential member right there. The closer the domain name is to the product of the company the more mass it fetches.

Domain Name Prices:

Depending on the structure and size of a business, the company should decide how much they would want to spend on their domain name. It is very important for the company to have the knowledge of how a hundred dollars domain name differs from a ten thousand dollar one. Some companies even decide … Read the rest

Bluehost Web Hosting Review and Coupons

Our Bluehost Review Updated for 2015:

Welcome to our Bluehost review! As you know, we set up a network of several domains on Bluehost’s network to test out their service in 2015. We only have one domain registered at Bluehost (which this year we had to renew at full price). We kept costs down by using a godaddy renewal coupon on our other domain names, which we then point to Bluehost’s nameservers (we’ll explain how to do that at the bottom of this review).

Living Up To Last Year’s Performance.

Our 2017 had Bluehost killing it with numbers that clearly set it apart as the #1 most reliable web host (with Arvixe coming in a distant second). While our numbers aren’t completely reflective of a web host’s capabilities, it is largest measurement test currently around.

Our Testing Method:

We set up a network of website with varying levels of content on them. Some were mainly blog style articles with text and images, while others have streaming and download capabilities. We wanted to test out how Bluehost could handle both light-bandwidth and heavy-bandwidth websites.

Putting up light-bandwidth sites for testing might seem redundant, but there are many high-end web hosts that … Read the rest
