I don’t know about you all, but I am not that interested in going out in the middle of a freezing November night to wait in line for some cheap deals on stuff I probably don’t need. Especially not when, instead, I can sleep off a turkey coma, wake up casually the next day, and save some money on hosting from the comfort of my heated home.
And for Black Friday 2011, there are plenty of great deals on hosting available! Hostgator made quite a splash last year, and they’re back at it again today. Some of my other favorite hosts – Dreamhost and Bluehost – are also running big deals for this shopping holiday, so listen up and you might find a great price on your next hosting plan:
Hostgator Black Friday 2011
Hostgator is offering 50% off ALL hosting plans, including shared, reseller, VPS, dedicated servers, and Windows hosting. Domain names aren’t included in the deal, but you can always bring your own.
Best of all you won’t need a coupon to activate the discounts so there’s no mess and no wondering why you can’t get the right price. Just click here to check out the Hostgator site, and enjoy half off any kind of hosting you need!
This sale will run until 11:59 PM CST 11/25/11
Bluehost is running their deal all weekend from Black Friday to Cyber Monday. This sale is just a little bit different though! Instead of discounting the hosting service itself to attract new customers, they’re showing some love for their existing members with deep cuts on some of the addons and extras available like dedicated IP addresses, domain privacy, backups, and SSL certificates. You can save 23-50% on these optional upgrades by visiting https://my.bluehost.com/cgi/blackfriday
If you don’t have a Bluehost account yet, it is still a great time for that, too. While it isn’t officially part of their Black Friday promotions, they’re offering a monthly rate of $5.95 right now. Click here to learn more or sign up for Bluehost
And now, perhaps saving the best for last, I’ve got a way for you to set up a new shared hosting account for just $10 in your first year. Yeah, wow!
777thanks11 is the coupon that will give you a ridiculous 92% savings on the regular cost of annual hosting with Dreamhost. The only catch is that you have to be a new customer, and this deal isn’t valid in all regions. Some non-U.S. customers probably won’t be able to access it, but they should check out some of the other Dreamhost coupons available internationally and year-round. 777thanks11 will only be active until 11:59 PST on 11/25/11 so after that you’ll have to stick to the “normal” discounts instead of getting $110 off the annual hosting plan.
Jeez, I wish I could get that kind of deal!!!
Anyway, here’s hoping you and yours had a great Thanksgiving – and good luck finding those Black Friday deals whether you’re shopping online or braving the crowds!
