It’s that time of year again, time to switch web hosts for a better deal! But here are some web hosts that are worth sticking around for (mostly).


Their hosting isn’t bad, just their customer service. I suggest using them only for domain registration as I do. You just can’t beat $1 domain names just click the link below and use coupon code “BLACKONE” (10,000 limit). If it expires you can still use this link $5 .COM Black Friday Sale! (limit 5 new domains).

L7 World has been with Hostgator since leaving Godaddy in 2009 and as visitors know it’s very stable except for a few recent bandwidth hiccups mostly due to its soaring popularity (Hostgator not L7 World [not yet anyway]). Here’s some statistics via Pingdom, which show 99.847% Uptime and an average response time of 1,099 ms (as you you can it has been on the upswing)

Uptime for L7 World: 12/11/2009 - 11/24/2011 Response time for L7 World: 12/11/2009 - 11/24/2011

Hostgator has slashed their already lowest prices in 1/2! (that’s nearly 50% for those of you on the metric system)

Shared hosting: As low as $4.95 Now only: $2.48/month (pre-paid)
Reseller Hosting: As low as $24.95 Now Only: $12.48/month (pre-paid)
VPS Hosting: As low as $19.95 Now Only: $9.98/month (First Month)
Dedicated Servers: As low as $174 Now Only $87/month (First Month)

Usually these deals are for new customers only but NOT this time! That’s right existing customers can sign up for new accounts. You just have to keep your existing account in good standing (i.e., don’t cancel your existing account as soon as you sign up for new account).

This deal starts midnight, Friday, November 25th, 2011 Central Standard Time (-6 GMT). The special offer will run until 11:59PM CST Friday, November 25th, 2011. That’s right all day long so there’s no selling out in 1 minute like last year, but personally I would chance waiting until the last second. These things are alway subject to change and go forbid you for to calculate the timezone correctly. There’s no coupon but I appreciate if you click through the link below before ordering so that I get credit.


I saved the best for last. The best thing I can say about Certified Hosting is that I never have to contact them. I host another website with them and it has an average Uptime of 99.908% (and that’s on shared hosting!) and an average Response time of 1,621 ms. Most the movies on my site are embedded from external sites to limit CPU resources but the few I do host stream (progressive download) extremely fast. Even my FTP is appears faster that Hostgator, which isn’t slow be any means.

Uptime: 11/30/2010 - 11/24/2011 Response time for: 11/30/2010 - 11/24/2011

Certified Hosting has comparable prices to Hostgator but when it comes to this Black Friday sale there’s no comparison. UP TO 80% OFF! That’s $28.44 for 3 years of quality hosting, but see my tip below and get the middle plan “Geek” for unlimited websites for just $50.04.

This Black Friday promo starts at 12:00AM (PST)(GMT-8) Friday November 25th and will expire at 11:59PM (PST)(GMT-8) 11/25/2011, but again don’t chance waiting until the last second. Click the link below to see all the Coupon Codes. Even if the sales over by the time you read this click the link below anyway. Certified Hosting is a real deal all year long. Don’t believe me?

#1 Make sure you sign up for 3 years to get the biggest discount and choose the middle plan, “Baby” for Hostgator or “Geek” for Certified Hosting, which allows for hosting unlimited websites. I made the mistake of signing up for the “Hatchling” plan at Hostgator thinking that I would never host multiple websites but 3 years is a long time and you never know.

#2 All of the above hosts DO allow all legal content.
