Interesting Website Hosting Deals

Recently, I have seen numerous website hosts offering packages that include credit to advertising sites, such as Google, Yahoo, Microsoft, etc. For instance, Godaddy offers $20 to Google Adwords and $25 to Microsoft Adcenter if you purchase their Economy Plan.

Note that the 12 month Economy Plan only costs $43.08 ($3.59 per month), and you will receive $45 in credit for these advertising sites as part of the plan.

Sounds too good to be true right? Well there are certain conditions for each of these credits. For Google Adwords, you must apply for an account within 15 days, be a new Google Adword customer, only use the credits on the domain hosted, and pay a $5 activation fee. For Microsoft Adcenter, you must apply for an account within 90 days, be a new Microsoft Adcenter customer, limited to one per customer, only valid for USA residents, and pay a $5 activation fee. Even with these certain conditions, it is still quite a reasonable deal granted you are able to use the credit.

  2. I found your site through quicksprout (the answers section) and I have been poking around here for a few minutes. The content is pretty good

    Despite what you mentioned above, the biggest thing to consider when choosing a web host isnt the perks. Go daddy is cheap, sure, but the quality of their hosting is terrible. Dont get suckered in with their deals.

    • I can’t say I’ve tried Godaddy’s hosting, so I can’t comment on its quality. You are correct though; the common fault among all bad hosts I’ve been through is poor quality (support). Thus far DreamHost and BlueHost have had superior support, so I’d recommend either of them.
