    Got an email from Host Gator about this mega promo they are having. Not sure if you need to use my affiliate link for the discount or not, but if so or you want to just message me. But i am definitely picking up a couple hosting plans myself for this price.

    Deal is - 75% off hosting for 1 hour on black Friday


    "We're kicking off Black Friday in style with a 1 hour flash sale for 75% OFF Hosting (starting at only $1.24/m) and $1.95 domains. This will run from 12 AM central to 1AM Central, November 29th.

    ALL Weekend Long Amazing discounts - Starting at 12:00AM Central time Friday November 29th until 11:59PM Central time Monday, December 2nd.

    The whole Black Friday/Cyber Monday weekend will be 60% OFF Hosting (Starting at $1.98/month) and $4.50 domains.

    We will be running limited time flash sales each day for 75% OFF Hosting (Starting at only $1.24/month) and $1.95 domains. Make sure you are checking the site and/or your email as we will be sending out notifications to let you know when the flash sales go live!

    The discount applies to all new hosting packages - including Shared, Reseller, VPS and Dedicated servers!

    Domain discounts will be for .COM/NET/ORG/INFO/BIZ

    Feel free to begin the pre-event promotion NOW. Press releases are prohibited.

    Discount coupons will be automatically applied for the duration of the promotion. Affiliate coupons will still work, but they will not reflect the larger savings from this promotion. We suggest using your affiliate link to ensure that your customers get the biggest discounts available during this time."

    Is the promotion recurring or is it just for the first month?

    Wouldnt bother guys. I have lost lots of money over the past month or two using hostgator with all the downtime they are having.

    Having promotions like this will only make things worse they need to sort themselves out first

    I will say again don't go for these crazy deals.

    Their service is shit. Downtime probably will overcost you.

    If you are having decent websites and making decent income then don't put them on risk. 2-3 days downtime will kill rankings as well as income.

    Is HG hosting the best? well i would partially agree with others here. Its definately not the best, but if you are just getting started with a small site or 2, or need hosting for a blog network, this is definately the deal. But to host a medium to large size site, might not be the best but will work.

    Ive used HG for last 4 years and havent had a problem, but none of my sites are really big

    Remember that during non "fire sale" times, we're still running 60% OFF new hosting packages and $4.50/year domains ALL WEEKEND (through Monday at 11:59PM) - still better than all other discounts this year!

    The 75% Off / $1.95 domain fire sale times are (all Central Time):

    Friday 12AM - 1AM

    Friday 9AM - 11AM

    Friday 9PM - 11PM

    Saturday 12PM - 1PM

    Sunday 8PM - 9PM

    Monday 12AM - 1AM

    Monday 10AM - 12AM

    Monday 10PM - 11:59PM

    Agree, Hostgator gone bad after EIG bought their company. Now all their servers are overloaded, thousands of site is packed in single server.

    Most of you know Hostgator sucks. But still, let me share my experience.
    I decided to try them out for the 1 cent-1 month promo and I am glad I did not pay any real money. They have one of the most sluggish chat support systems ever. You would always wait 20 minutes on average. Their registration process sucks. You can't register like in a normal website, you must directly fill out a form and pay. The speed and the cpanel looked ok. They froze my account, requiring ID from me (it is 1 cents trail) without warning (no notification, no email). Bored and happy I did not get involved in paying this unprofessional company more than a cent that was not worth it for 12 hours of use. :D End of story.
    Avoid this hosting service, because you never know when your site will get dumped. THere is a plenty of other good hosting services out there for the same prices.
