Disclaimer: Links to Dreamhost and HostGator are Affiliate links.
HostGator and Dreamhost [affiliate] are the two most famous shared hosting provider. Both offers superb Support and Service. But In comparison of resources usage, I would recommend to go with Hostgator [affiliate link]. But to get maximum benefit I will recommend you to opt Dreamhost for two year than switch to Hostgator for 3 years. If you do this you will be able to get maximum saving. However It all depends on you, I am posting maximum discount coupons for both webhosts.
Well, I would like to confirm you that I have never used their services and this blog is currently hosted on DreamHost. I have plan to switch to HostGator Since I will be more costlier with the second year hosting.
HostGator have 3 plans for shared hosting i.e. Hatching Plan, Baby Plan and Business Plan. Both have their own benefits. I you want to start a e-commerce site You should go with Business Plan, if you want to host only your blog (1 domain) Hatching plan will be sufficient for you. But If you want to host multiple domains opt Baby Plan.
For details of the plan go to HostGator Site.
The Coupon: I have 25% discount coupon for you. Use “NetRival25” as your promo code You will get instantly 25% off on your 1st bill. Please note, All discount will be available with the first bill and no discount will be allowed to you further. So signup for the longest period if you can.
Dreamhost is another good option. Dreamhost have provided me 5 special coupons worth $100 each. It means you may have chance to get $100. I would like to clarify that discount of $100 will be available with 2 year hosting plan. The additional benefit with Dreamhost is free lifetime domain.
The Coupons: Use any of the single use coupons to get maximum discount:
814993751329741079612771 870374313941 849691338517 820917697095
These are special coupon and no one give you more than this except Dreamhost itself. $100 discount will be allowed only when if you signup for two year hosting. If you signup for 1 year hosting use “NR50″ to get $50 discount.
You may also use NR97 to get $97 off. This is maximum allowed discount coupons. Only Dreamhost may give you more than this as a special coupon as mentioned above which is $100 coupon (for 2 years hosting).
Additional benefit with Dreamhost: If you go with dreamhost they will provide you lifetime free domain worth $9.95/year and most importantly If you are new to hosting you may appoint some expert to do things in your hosting space without giving them your user name and password. Yes, Dreamhost’s unique cPanel allows their customers to invite someone to manage their account in more secure way.
My last word to you: I will suggest you to sign-up any of the host no-matters, but sign-up with longer period to get maximum advantage. Since no promocode or discount coupon will be allowed after the use of a promo-code.
