Why & How To Self-Host Your Blog + 50% off!

Happy Cyber Monday, everyone!

Over at HostGator (my favorite hosting company), they’re offering 50% off all hosting plans, TODAY ONLY. This means instead of paying $10 a month, or $80 for a year up front, you can get the entire year up front for $40.

Some of you already have self-hosted blogs, but a lot of you keep hearing about them, and are wondering if you should be on Blogger or WordPress, and why anyone would bother paying for WordPress when you could just use it for free.

I decided to bunker down at Starbucks before leaving Portland this morning to give you access to my “Understanding Domains, Hosting & The Internet” PDF I give to my blog design clients. This PDF* will help you understand what a self-hosted blog is and does, and how to set one up. And to tell you that if you’ve been putting off self-hosting your blog or portfolio website, today is the time to do it. Please use my affililate link so I can get commission! ♥

If you are on WordPress, click here for the Understanding Domains, Hosting & The Internet PDF.

If you are on Blogger, click here for the PDF, which includes an explanation of some of the difference between the two blog platforms.

If you’d like step-by-step instructions for purchasing your blog hosting plan, click here.

Also, I’m currently booked through the holidays for blog design, but if you’d like to go ahead and reserve time in January (new year, new blog!!) I would love to hear from you. Shoot me an email at laurennicolelove[at]gmail.com. There is more information on my blog design here. I’m also available to design banners, buttons, Twitter page backgrounds, Facebook landing pages, etc.


*Note on PDFs: These were written & designed for active clients, so please pardon any instructions that do not apply to you. Also, you do not need to use the 25% off coupon that is listed in the PDF. Use the CYBERMONDAY11 coupon that defaults into the code section today to receive 50%. Feel free to use the 25% off coupon at a later date though! 🙂 Thank you!.

    Out of curiosity, why do you recommend Go Daddy? I ask because so much of your blog is about women respecting themselves, but this company's marketing goes out of their way year after year to demean women

    (Side story: A systems administrator friend made it a condition of his employment, when he took a job with venture-capital firm in Seattle, to get off Go Daddy, arguing their business deals were lousy and there were better firms. He's a man.)
