It’s that time again! Time for another great deal on web hosting to save you big time bucks.
As promised, whenever we see these great sales, we are going to share them because we know that many of you have been starting businesses of all kinds from services, selling products, selling handmade goods, etc. and want to have a website to promote and share your business. It’s also for those that have been wanting to start a website or a blog. With sales like this, you can start-up for a very low fee.
So if these categories fit your next goal, then you might want to take a look at this deal where you can get an ENITRE YEAR of web hosting for only $35.40.
Now although the sale is for 48-hours only, you’ll get an entire year of hosting for a price of only $35.40 with a FREE domain name. That makes it only $2.95 per month!
We run most of our blogs from this host (did you know we have several, not just The Thrifty Couple) because it is a super affordable way to start. We’ve had a great experience the past year with this host and very little issues. Which is great because it means we don’t have to spend much to operate and we can get a great product, from our personal experience.
This is for basic hosting on a shared server, which is perfect for a blog or website just starting out or that doesn’t yet have a huge amount of traffic. As you grow, your needs will grow and you will have to upgrade to a higher paid plan, but you can upgrade at any time, but don’t pay for more than you need now.
When it comes to starting a website or a blog, there is very little you need to actually start. Really, it’s just the domain name and hosting. Since this will be covered for the whole year for $35.40, then you will be in great shape to start off. After the 1-year, hosting is $7.99 a month or more depending on how quickly your site grew over that year.
This is one of the main reasons why we would encourage anyone and everyone to start a website or a blog in this day and age. The cost to start is of minimal investment for a business, but has a great return and proven track record.
Of course, there are always others expenses that you can include and can do and you can spend a lot of money to start and operate a website or blog, but it’s not necessary, especially when starting out. Add those expenses when you are making the income to justify it! We have a list of website and blog resources and tools on our resources page.
Blogging is an incredible way to earn extra income. We’ve shared a little of our journey in this post here about how I bring home $3,500 a month as a stay-at-home mom, much of which comes from my efforts in blogging.
And not only the perfect outlet for stay-at-home moms, but for small businesses or moms or self employed that offer other products or services and want to showcase them via a website to reach more people. The sky is the limit!
We have a growing series on how to get started with your blog or website in 15 minutes or less (including Alex sharing the exact steps to get you started on our youtube channel). This should give you all that you need to get started and set-up in 15 minutes and start writing your posts or to set-up your business online to showcase your product or service.
But before you can get your website set-up, you need to get your domain name and website host. If you already have a domain name, no worries, you can still get the hosting deal.
Here’s how to get the $2.95 monthly hosting and free domain name:
- Step 1: get the $2.95 monthly price through this link HERE
- Step 2: click on the ‘get started now’ button.
- Step 3: Then select the basic plan (this is all you need right now, you can upgrade when you need to).
- Step 4: Enter your domain name and your domain name is free!
- If you already have purchased a domain name separately, just enter your current domain instead.
- Step 5: Complete the checkout process and finish payment information. Please note: you don’t need anything extra at this point – just the $35.40 for the year. The only reason why you would is if you have a current site and you want to move it to a more affordable host like bluehost. But you would know what you need. If you are starting out, just do the basics!
Once this is done – you are nearly ready to start! You just have to get the website up. But DON’T worry, it’s super easy and anyone can do it.
Alex even quickly filmed this video to walk you through the easy process.
