It's for anyone who is looking at the economics of website ownership!
I'm pretty sure if you have a self hosted website that you're wondering if you can get hosting any cheaper than you're already paying for it, right? Well, I can tell you that if you're paying full price for yours, chances are you can get the same for less. How?
I will tell you!
Reducing Your Hosting Costs
If you are with another host, then you can easily move your site to Hostgator whenever you want and take advantage of our special 25% OFF coupon that is valid for up to 3 years of hosting if you pay all in one go. With a credit card, it makes sense to do it that way because of how much you can save.
To use the coupon, just follow the simple steps explained in the right column of this page.
If you're already a HG customer, you will need to cancel your hosting with them, then take out a new plan using the coupon. If you have two or more sites, it's easier. Because when you set up the new account, use a different domain than you used to set up the one you just cancelled.
Moving a Wordpress Site
Lots of people with their own website opted to set it up on a Wordpress blog, because it's so easy. That's all fine and dandy until you come to want to move it to another host. Then you have to do some work!
But it's not too difficult to move such a site. You need to take a few safety steps first, like backing up the database and keeping a copy of it on your own computer's hard drive. Its also a good idea to copy over your theme (especially if you did some customizing to it) and your images, plugins and any other custom made files.
There are plenty of tutorials online that can take you step by step through moving a Wordpress blog from one host to another. So I won't duplicate that info here, since this blog is dedicated to getting you cheaper hosting, not website building and such.
Save and Prosper
One thing you might not have considered about making a saving on your host's costs and that's in freeing up some finances for re-investing in your site and/or online business associated with it. You see, even a small saving can be used to buy more domains (of you want to spread your online presence wider) or to buy content from and outsourcing venue.
You can also use it to buy software or to buy tutorials on how to maximize your online business or learn new skills like html/css coding or a real programming language like php if you're interested. Or you could simply save the money to renew your existing domain's registration for several years.
How you spend the money you will save by using our discount coupon is up to you. But just having it there to spend is such a great feeling!
