    Hey,

    I am on a hostgator baby shared server right now and I was wondering if the $3.95 bluehost hsoting is the same!? Because both are shared and I have heard many positive stuff about bluehost. So, why is the hostgator package 9.95 and the bluehost one is 3.95? Is there any difference between the 2?

    Thanks,
    Josh

    How about go to justhost?
    Here is how I do it, although by telling this its gonna get over saturated and they might have to remove this offer.
    Ask on of the people in chat if they still offer free hosting+domain with template monster purchases
    If they do, buy a REALLY cheap thing from templatemonster (I brought $11 logo)
    Use the coupon you get with it and buy the hosting FREE for one YEAR
    $11 for Hosting and domain for ONE WHOLE YEAR is not too much to ask for.

    As someone who is very familiar with Bluehost . the reason for the price difference, $3.95 @ bluehost is the price if you pay for three years up front. I would stay clear of them at all costs, Matt Heaton will terminate accounts just because he does not like them . they are a mormon run company based in Provo Utah. Anyone who puts the following in their Terms Of Service "Foul language and profanity in the site content, and in the domain name are prohibited." has a serious Moral Superiority complex.

    End Rant..

    @darsham - I've seen this offer on here before but never paid much attention to it. Thanks for mentioning it. I can confirm that it still works. I just purchased a $15 icon set and the offer worked.

    FYI - During checkout, there is not anything that mentions JustHost. It's not until you get the Download email (upon phone confirmation) that you will receive the link for the free hosting.

    I hope that helps!

    both these companies are owned by the same company EIG. SO IMO servers and support would not be any different.

    You can search around and you can see all the different post of people saying stay away from EIG. Do your research on the company before you sign up.

    If you are still needing a web hosting we can help you out.

    both BlueHost and HostGator are owned by same EIG group and both have same support, there is no difference between them. my suggestion is to stay away from them and check out BHW Marketplace, you will surely find better and reliable hosting provider then EIG group.

    Both of these are same. Now it's not their time. Now a days there are so many new companies which are providing superb support and services.

    They are the same company now.
    Go for something else.
