Back in May I wrote a blog post “Extreme couponing for web designers” which listed FREE services and applications any web designer will appreciate. Today I am back with coupon codes and money saving tricks for domain names and web hosting.
Coupons for domain names
Without a doubt GoDaddy continues to offer the best prices for domain names and there are plenty of coupon codes out there to get an even better deal. For example the code cjc749fat will get you a .com domain name for $7.49 . The deals/codes changes on a regular basis but a good site with up to date information is fatwallet.com
Here are some ways to can save on web hosting
- What type of hosting account do you need for your web site? Most hosting companies offer a number of different packages and the more complex your website the more you will need from your hosting company. If you have a simple web site the basic hosting package will probably suffice… no need to upgrade for features and functionality you don’t need.
- Before opening a new hosting account always do a Google search to see if you can find any coupons, for the company you wish to host with or the type of hosting account you need.
- Committing to an initial 12 month contract as opposed to month to month, will generally give you a better rate and save you money in the long run.
- Set up a reseller account, many hosting companies will give you a discount on every site you host with them.
