Hosting & Domain Service

NAMECHEAP

Namecheap.comAffordable Hosting With Great Customer Service.

In the last 3 years, I have switched hosting twice! You see, I am not someone who needs a lot of things for my hosting. I just need a hosting service to be affordable, reliable, easy to use and provides great support. And that is what I have experienced with Namecheap.

For those considering to make a switch to Namecheap, here are someĀ coupon code that you can use..
1. for 25% OFF dedicated hosting, code is SLEGHBEL7
2. for discounts on domain registration & transfer, code is SNOBALFYTE.

BLUEHOST


The Complicated Cut-Throat.

In 2013, I switched from Hostjill, which is by far the worst hosting provider I have experienced, to Bluehost. Bluehost, to me, is a very premium provider with tons of support from web design to web transfer... but at a price..Ā 

To cut a long story short, I decided to look for alternative when I found that it is too complicated, too costly and takes a long time for the support team to get back. I don't have a good experience with their support team as they seemed to be focused in closing the case rather that solving it and that takes a lot of time.
