As you all read in the previous post aboutwhich would be available once again on 29 of nov celebrating CyberMonday. This is good news for all the people who have missed the offer on BlackFriday including me as they for some time. This time I would not give myself a chance to miss.
As I was planning to buy on CyberMonday, I got an idea of saving $13 nearly on hostgator. I will tell you how. buy hosting. The price is bit high than other hosts as new customer’s should pay $15 extra on the purchase. I will tell some tips on how to save $13 on hostgator.do not provide a free domain for new customers, but it do provides a free transfer. Customers are made to buy a new domain or should use an existing domain to
I got an interesting tweet saying that NetFirms, which is also a hosting company which is offering domain at discounted price. With current discount price you can grab it for $1.95. I do not know about other extensions but when I entered the promo for .org and .net they showed me the same price saying $6.04 off which totals you to $1.95 only. So if you are interested you can buy other extensions.
NOTE: Only 1 domain per new customer is allowed. Normal prices would be charged on purchase of extra domains.
Now regester a domain with netfirms. Hostgator’s CyberMonday offer would go live on 29 nov, then you can buy the hosting there. Register to hostgator as i say:
- Firstly when you buy on hostgator, select your favorite plan.
- Then when you go domain registration page, dont enter the new domain name. Just enter the domain which you buy on NetFirms in “use existing domain” column(i have inserted an image for reference below).
- This would cost you $0 and you pay only for hosting.
- After that you can transfer your domain name to hostgator which they do for free.
The domain transfer can be done only when your domain is 60days old. So keep the domain on NetFirms and update just the name servers till then. This is as good as saving $13 which is pretty good amount. After you complete 60days you can request a transfer of domain on NetFirms to hostgator using this form which they do it for free.
I had a talk with chat technician on netfirms regarding the domain transfer and they said no extra money would be charged when you transfer your domain to other host. They said the other host who is helping to transfer may charge. But, hostgator does free transfer for the primary domain. If you need to transfer more than one they may charge you.
This is the idea I got and I was interested to share with you people. If you have anyother idea regarding this you may help other via comments.
