My favorite shared web hosting company

Greetings dear current or future internet entrepreneur.

I sometimes get asked by budding internet entrepreneurs questions related to web hosting. One of these commonly asked questions is where should they host their website and what type of hosting plan they should purchase. Some of them are under the impression that they need to invest a lot of money into fancy pants so called “business” web hosting plans or even dedicated servers. I’ve been through this already, and I found out that for the most part a regular decent shared web hosting plan is adequate for the needs of MOST internet entrepreneurs. If you know for SURE that you will get crazy high traffic within the first few months of launching your internet venture then, sure, go for most powerful hosting solutions, but the reality is that most of you will start your venture into the internet business field with low traffic requirements. In the beginning a good shared web hosting plan is all that you need.

I used to have this website on a dedicated server and you know what, I was paying over $100 a month a the time and for the majority of the time the server was hardly breaking a sweat. Since March or so of this year I’ve moved the site back to my trusted and favorite hosting company – Hostgator. Ever since I’ve signed up with them a while back (actually a pretty long time ago) I’ve been happy with their level of service. They’re a very reliable hosting company, and when you’re in the business of making money online having good uptime is very important!

There are a ton of hosting companies out there and I’m sure someone else would say to go with this or that company, but I can only speak from experience and based on this experience I definitely feel comfortable recommending Hostgator.

A good course of action would be to set yourself yourself up with their Baby Plan or Business Plan. The Business Plan comes with a toll free number, private IP and SSL certificate. The Baby Plan is in my opinion the better option if you’re just starting off and don’t need the more business orientated services of the Business Plan. The Baby Plan is just $6.36 a month which is a really good deal in my opinion.

As your website traffic grows (and hopefully your wallet) you can always grow your way into more advanced hosting solutions like VPS or even dedicated servers. Hostgator offers all of these.

In this post I am assuming that you know what to do next once you’ve got your web hosting needs all sorted out, but if you need some advice on how you can get started with making money online leave on comment on this post and I will try my best to help you out. You could of course just browse my blog here for some good money making opportunities.

Thank you for your time and attention, and I wish you the best of luck with your entrepreneurial journey. Now go on and make a million – and more – bucks!

Cheers,

Alan

HostGator Coupon Codes

hostgator coupon codes

Hi everyone!

I’ve got a few web hosting coupon codes to share with you all today. The coupons  (as you probably can already tell) apply to the web hosting services of a company called HostGator. This very site used to be hosted with HostGator, and although my sites have outgrown a shared hosting account I can honestly say that when I was hosting my sites with HostGator I never had any problems whatsoever. They offered me stellar reliability, but what I liked best was their amazing customer support. Thanks guys! I should also mention that I like them so much that I kept my “Baby Plan” hosting account open with them for backup purposes. But enough about my experience with them, how about we get to the meat of this post – coupons!

Here are the coupon codes:

1: MONEYGURU25OFF –   25% off

2: MONEYGURU994 –  $9.94 off

3: MONEYGURU2494 – $24.94 off reseller packages

You can type any of these coupon codes (the ones in bold above) during the checkout process. These coupon codes do not expire! Feel free to share them with whomever you think needs quality web hosting at a reasonable cost.

Start your own web hosting company for FREE

reseller_hosting_logo.jpg

Greetings folks. Have you ever dreamed of running your own web hosting company? Being kind of a geeky fellow I wanted for a long time to provide people with website hosting services. Later on I realized that I probably can’t realistically start my own web hosting company from scratch, so I looked to the next best thing – becoming a reseller. I looked far and wide and for the life of me I could not find a company that would let me resell their hosting services without asking me pay them a monthly service fee. I realize that you can become an affiliate and get a one time commission, but that’s not what I was after. I wanted to build a long term income stream. I also wanted to build my own custom hosting plans and set my own pricing and basically do all the things a regular web hosting company does without the overhead of having my own servers, staff, etc. Luckily after some searching around on the net I found a company that will give you all the tools you need to build your own white-label web hosting company without asking one penny from you!

So let me briefly describe how this free reseller program works:

You can resell this company’s plans or create your own hosting packages, then set the desired corresponding prices. They will pay you the difference between our wholesale prices and your custom ones. That difference will form your profit and will be applicable for every single hosting account order, renewal, domain registration or service upgrade. Each month they will send you your earnings by Check, through PayPal, to your wallet balance or via a bank wire. Pretty easy eh?

Here is a complete table with all the services offered:

  • Private label reseller – resell to your clients under your own brand name (neat!)
  • You set your own prices – maintain full control over your profit
  • Private DNS and E-mail cluster – improve your reseller uniqueness
  • Multi-currency support – credit/debit cards or PayPal payments (USD, GBP, EUR, CAD & AUD)
  • No billing fees – they cover all the billing expenses and offer free fraud protection and no start up fees
  • Full control – over your customers’ hosting accounts: upgrade or renew customers plans
  • Plan Builder – create and customize your own hosting plans, put your prices on them and sell them
  • Resell competitive plans – in case you don’t want to use the plan creator, simply resell their predefined plans which are pretty competitive considering what the packages offer.
  • Turn-key templates – choose one of the 3 ready-to-use templates or apply their remote forms to your own site (the forms require some programming and websie integration skills)
  • Detailed statistics – complete report of each and every single sale you make
  • Free domain hosting – they host your reseller domain & template for free (get your own domain, this is what I did and it DOES make you look more professional and it’s definitely worth it)
  • Affordable domain price – $4.00/year with every hosting package
  • Professional support – available 24 hours a day, 365 days a year – both to you, as a reseller, and to your clients, 1 hour response time guaranteed
  • Reseller API – if you want to bill your clients yourself (for advanced users/programmers only)
  • Flexible wallet system – get discounts with every account refill
  • 2-tier affiliate program – 10% commissions on all affiliate sales (invite a friend to get in on this business and you’ll get rewarded)
  • No obligations – Neither future obligations and deposits, nor special skills required.

I decided to go with their private label package and registered my own domain name and customize the prices a bit. You can see the end result of my effort at this website:

In fact a while back before I decided to start my own blog hosting venture I had this blog and all my websites running on my private label web host. The only reason I switched to Hostgator was because unfortunately the company behind this reseller program will not let you use Wildcard DNS. What I did was I created a custom web hosting package and set the price to the wholesale rate and boom, I got web hosting on the cheap. I also purchased my own dedicated DNS & mail servers cause I’m cool like that.

If you’re thinking your customer are going to be hosted on some cheap PC in someone’s basement running off of a DSL or cable connection, you’re dead wrong mister! The company’s network capacity exceeds 2.5 Gigs of Internet connectivity via DS3, OC3, OC12, and Gigabit Ethernet connections to a wide variety of peer points and several transit providers. The circuits are terminated in their data center on carrier class, Cisco Systems 12000 routers. The geeks out there will surely be salivating right abut now, and the non-geeks should just remain in awe of the complex jargon and technobabble – just kidding, all of this means your site and your customer’s sites will run FAST! The servers are quad-core xeon monstes with beefy hard drives and mountains of memory running my favorite server operating system – Linux.

So, I encourage all you entrepreneurial types to have a look at this opportunity, and if you decide to go ahead with this venture I wish you much success and a steady income stream.
