    For the 1st year of hosting at hostgator, I paid $95.52 after coupon-discount. I noticed that for my next renewal, the price will become normal at $119.40. I'm wondering is it possible to get discount for subsequent renewals, can anyone plz share their experiences/knowledge?

    I think there is no such option, you can move to another host for one month after your hostgator plan expires. Then come back to HG again as a new customer to get initial discount.

    Hm, maybe this is a question to ask in the live chat. Maybe I will get to that later...

    For all the fuss, its only a difference of only $25. You could pay that with less than 1 day's worth of AC. If you want a discount for a longer duration, use the coupon code "green" (which saves you 20%), register the baby account for three years (which gives you the $7.95 monthly rate) and it will cost you approx. $228.96 for three years after the discount - which breaks down to 6.36/mo.

    yes agreed, the difference/savings isn't a lot ... but shouldn't HG reward regular customers, who stay loyal & keep on hosting with them? There is almost zero marketing cost to retain a customer subsequently. Just my 2cent thoughts; I have till next year to decide to stay or switch.
