Domain & Hosting Options for your Website Project
When assisting students to sign-up for web hosting and domain services, we search for discount codes online through Google. But we often encounter the situation where a code has limited use not giving everyone an opportunity to avail of it.
The platforms I am recommending here are:
- MediaTemple – I am using this premium service for my sites. No need to upgrade subscription plan as your use increase. Although an additional fee may be charged. This spared me from receiving site errors when the traffic spikes up.
- GoDaddy – I am using this for hosting MSME / student websites. You will need to upgrade as your resource demand increase. If you bought your domain from another service provider or different GoDaddy account (not same account as your hosting), you need to manually update your domain A settings when you upgrade (as this usually changes after a major plan upgrade).
I hope the following options will help.
I. Buy or subscribe online through discount links / codes
GoDaddy – P49 (1 dollar) domain for 1 year
(Choose 1 year if you only want to pay P49 at this time. This is valid for new GoDaddy users only.)
GoDaddy – 30% off on any service (for those with GoDaddy accounts already).
GoDaddy – P49 pesos per month hosting with free domain.
(Don’t forget to choose your domain as you checkout. Note that depending on your website resource usage, GoDaddy may require you to upgrade.)
MediaTemple – Get 2 months free on WordPress hosting when you get a one year plan.
(MediaTemple is a premium hosting service that was once recommended by WordPress.)
Will add more discount link as we discover great deals online.
Assistance to MSME Mentorship Patrons
I also have a Patreon perk called MSME Mentorship (https://www.patreon.com/bePatron?c=174830&rid=974966). In addition to the monthly online learning session (beginner 101 series, leadership, branding, blog / social media entrepreneurship, business model review), I am providing:
- Website hosting of MSME online project (WordPress-based – No CPanel access).
- Let’s Encrypt SSL addition to make the MSME online presence – an https site.
I hope the above will help.
