New Hostgator Coupon Code: Save 20%

Hostgator has a New Year Special good through February 1st. You can save 20% on their web hosting service by using the coupon code "NEWYEAR" (without the quotes, of course).

I tested this coupon code myself, to see which of the two current coupon codes is the better deal. As you know, I offer a coupon code where you can get your first month of hosting service free - actually it's 1c (a penny), but that's about as close to free as you can get when setting up a hosting account 😉

So which of the two coupon codes should you use?

Here's a breakdown of the 2 coupon codes for HostGator, and what you'll get with each:

Coupon Code: wordpress
With this coupon code you'll get your first month for only one penny. The most popular plan is called "Baby" and is $9.95/month when paid monthly. This option will let you get set up and get things rolling for practically zero investment other than your domain name. A great deal!

Coupon Code: NEWYEAR
This coupon code expires on February 1st, and so is a limited time offer. They dont tell you much about it upfront, other than the code will save you 20%. A quick test I did this morning shows that the code will give you a 20% savings on your checkout total - but not a continued savings. Your next invoice will be at regular price. Their prices are incredibly competitive, so that's still a great deal.

If you are going to set up a Baby hosting account - which is their popular full featured hosting service with the ability to add unlimited domains/sites - and you plan to pay monthly at 9.95/mo, then the best coupon code to use is "wordpress".

Even if you dont plan to host a blog or use WordPress, the coupon code will still work for you. That will save you $9.94 upfront. The 20% off coupon code (newyear) would only save you $1.90 on your first month.

However, if you plan to pay yearly, you'll want to use the coupon code "NEWYEAR". This will save you $23.88 upfront instead of $9.94. Your first year of hosting would total $95.52 - which is equal to $7.96/month.

HostGator is the host that I use here at, and for several other sites that I own as well. They have excellent support and tons of features - I highly recommend them to anyone looking for a new host, or setting up their first hosting account.

Enjoy the savings!

    I saw this advertised too - good stuff. I joined HostGator in December based on your recommendation and I'm very happy with their service.

  2. I love HostGator! I love having all the options it gives me with a great price! 😀

  3. Makingyouricher review today says

    A smart calculation you've done here Lynn. At first I was a bit confused until you broke down the differences. I am already using Hostgator, but I am wondering if one can also use the “NEWYEAR” coupon to order 1 year on top of my existing account.

    Any idea... 🙂

  4. I'm not sure, but I bet you could email or call their billing department to find out 😉
