HostGator announces Black Friday 2010 promotion

HostGator has announced a special Black Friday 2010 promotion for all its loyal affiliates that promises to be the best deal ever in over eight years of hosting.

HostGator is offering 50 percent off everything from 12 midnight-5 a.m. CST, and 80 percent off from 5 a.m.-9 a.m. CST, while supplies last. It?s a first come first serve event that no one will want to miss. From 9 a.m.-11:59 p.m. CST, or after 80 percent off accounts have sold out, Host Gator will continue to offer 50 percent off everything.

The Black Friday promotion begins at 12-midnight on Friday, Nov. 26, 2010 CST (-6GMT) and will run until 11:59 p.m. CST (-6 GMT). During this time, affiliates will receive their full, regular commission on all Black Friday sales. The event promises to be a record-breaking day for HostGator and all its affiliates.

The discounts apply to all accounts and all term lengths. This allows all affiliate visitors and friends to receive 80 percent off up to three years worth of hosting. That?s $35.64 for three full years of hosting, and includes shared hosting, reseller hosting, VPS hosting and dedicated servers.

The promotion marks a first in HostGator history. The firm has never conducted a promotion that included dedicated servers, all accounts and terms lengths, plus allowed affiliates to retain 100 percent of their commissions on every sale sent to them on Black Friday. The promotion boosts sales for HostGator, in addition to putting an amazing amount of money into the pockets of affiliates.

Depending on the time the deal is struck during the promotion, it provides customers with the opportunity to obtain shared hosting for a s little as 99 cents per month, reseller hosting for as low as $4.99 per month, VPS hosting for only $3.99 per month and dedicated servers for as little as $34.80 per month. The deal is extremely appealing and offers affiliates the opportunity to make a significant amount of money during the Black Friday 2010 promotion.

There are a number of means by which the offer can be promoted. Affiliates can post it on their blog, on Twitter, Facebook and other forums, and even use their email lists.

Hostgator Updates

The other day I got an email from my favorite web hosting company Hostgator. The Updates to Hostgator hoary just keeps getting it better. I think they have gone far and beyond from just being an awesome hosting company. They have added on PCI Compliance for a year within shared and reseller hosting accounts. I personally think this is great for anyone who is building their own online store.

If that is not enough they are also adding on VPS servers which are a good idea for expanding their user base right now they have around Domains Hosted: 2,358,406. I think by next year Hostgator will have over 3million domains hosted with them & continue to grow. If you?re not with Hostgator or with some other hosting company I think you should take up Hostgator?s offer they will transfer your account to their servers free of charge can?t beat that so what are you waiting for?

PCI Compliance

HostGator follows PCI compliance standards to ensure that our customers? data and information is safe and secure. More and more merchant accounts and payment gateways are requiring that e-commerce websites become PCI compliant in order to accept credit cards. We recently made a deal with McAfee Secure to give all of our shared (Hatchling, Baby, Business) hosting accounts free PCI scans for an entire year.

You can take advantage of this by logging into your control panel, and clicking ?Account Addons? under the HostGator Links section. From there, just click the ?Free PCI Scan? link to submit your site?s information.

VPS Servers

Many of our customers have been requesting VPS, and we?re happy to announce that it?s right around the corner. If you are interested in VPS, or want to know what to know what in the world it is, check our VPS forum thread.?
