Wanting to buy the hatchling plan and it costs $177? Really? It says they charge $3.96 monthly?
either or.. you just have to select the term (last I knew).. Hostgator is a pretty shitty host if you ask me.. Up and down all the time and the UI is 5th grade 1998 status. You're better off getting someone else, IMO.
You have to pick either monthly or yearly plan... theres a hosting service thats advertise on bhw ive seen before http://www.blueangelhost.com/ haven't tried it but seems pretty good
Hostgator is fine.
I've had them for the past couple of years. Haven't had any issues with them and they have been available to help when I needed them.
Bluehost, if that's that offshore hosting, tried it and it didn't go too well.
As far as the prices for hostgator goes, I believe that if you go for the lump sum, they'll give you a discount, so it adds up to that cheaper price per month.
Yeah as i said haven't tried them, thanks for the feedback
Hi OP, you cant pay monthly for hatchling. Monthly payment option is for baby and above only. Hope it helps.
Yes they charge for all eternity then give you monthly discounts as you go. If you stay with them for 200 years it becomes free.
Hey guys thanks so much for the help.
I'm wondering though, I want to purchase a Baby or maybe a Hatchling plan.
Right now I'm looking at a Baby plan for $9.96 a month with a coupon code. The final price is $94.64. Do I have to pay all this at once, like right now? Cuz I can't afford that. I thought they would charge me $9.96 for this month and then $9.96 for next month, not charge me for the 6 months all together?
Please help I'm so confused.
OP, im using baby plan with hostgator currently. Im paying 9.96 month by month. Just select 'monthly' option in the drop down box when youre buying.
OP use this: http://www.hostgator.com/promo/penny-offer - cost 1 penny for your first month of hosting.
Pay attention to what I'm telling you.
You can choose the monthly plan and just pay that $9.96 a month.
Make sure you also uncheck all the addons. I just looked through their site and they're offering the Baby plan 20% off @ 7.96 per month..
I don't need Sitelock or Codeguard?
Im no technical, but i dont use the addons. I uncheck them, just like what snort said..
Do you need it? Nope.
I don't use it and I'm sure the majority of others don't.
You're just starting, you can get away with the most basic of everything and keep pushing that for a nice while.
Good luck on your journey. I hope to see a nice success thread in the future from you.
I love you guys seriously. Such a great forum. I'm going to go with a Baby plan because I plan on making more websites.
You're doing something wrong. All hostgator plans have a monthly option, you're somehow choosing an option that is yearly. Go back and clear your shopping cart and restart.
I'm an idiot lol. I have it all figured out. Losing too much sleep lately, I read words but don't process them for real. It'll be all good soon.
