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 $0.99 godaddy promo code promotion earlier this year, we were able to set up an even bigger network of test sites across a range of web hosting servers. 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 largest known test on the internet.
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:
– 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.
– 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.
