$1/month Basic Web Hosting from Go Daddy

GoDaddy_1_Dollar_HostingMillions of people search every month for cheap web hosting every month. I know that because I have the tools to get to know what people are searching for online. And since I build many websites for myself and my friends and clients, I have a good idea about this market.

The cheapest web hosting deal around is GoDaddy’s special offer of $12/year and it comes with a free domain name registration.

There’s a reason it is that cheap. It’s a basic hosting and this price is only for the first year. After that you’ll be paying the regular price which is $3.99/month if you pay for 2 years in advance.

When I compare it with a iPage web hosting ($2.25/month) I see more than double the price, but I get $200 of advertising coupons to spend with Facebook, Google, and bing! Now this is a good deal.

So here is how I would go around it. If I need a personal blog or a I am going to build a money making website and send traffic to it using free methods only I would take GoDaddy’s deal. The cost is less than a medium sized pizza and that’s all. I’ll think about the regular price later when I the year is over.

The opposite is true if I want to build a professional website for a client or myself, or a website that’s too commercial to optimize for search engines (no real value for the readers other than finding the product they’re searching for), in that case I’ll take iPage’s deal. $200 of free advertising could be at least doubled if I have an optimized paid-advertising campaign ready.

You’ve got the idea, reflect on your own situation. Do you need advertising? Go for iPage. You don’t need the advertising? Go for GoDaddy.

  1. Everyone should have web hosting that is trying to make money online. Web hosting gives you the ability to host your own websites and blogs, as well as images, squeeze pages, or funnel pages, this is an absolute must!

    I wouldn’t even try to market online without web hosting.

    Thanks for the article.
    Sincerely,
