Cheap Hosting Plan

In the past few years, I have noticed a growing trend. A lot of people are moving away from Geocities and other free web hosts and building personal websites with unique domain names.

Of course not all of them intend to use their sites for commercial purposes but is more of a "buying my home on the net" thing. This includes a lot of my friends who have suddenly realised that "selling" yourself is not necessarily a bad thing, especially in the education and consulting sectors. Many of these guys have a blog instead of a static site (which is a relatively new development in Malaysia)

After talking to some of my fellow bloggers I have come to the conclusion that most people are looking for a basic web hosting plan. Most want a host that 1) has lot of storage space (you will be surprised how much you have posted once the blogging bug bites), 2) A lot of bandwidth, 3) Is affordable. Only a few are looking for Content Management Systems (CMS) or e-commerce tools.

I just came across on of the most amazing hosting plans on the net. The basic plan on Lunarpages Web Hosting gives you 800GB of data transfer and 35GB of storage space. They are also giving you $700 worth of CoffeeCup webmaster and design software for FREE. That's not all. The most amazing part is that this package includes a Free Domain Name for Life for the life of the hosting account. All of this for only $6.95 a month.


In case you are wondering about the $700 worth of CoffeeCup software. This includes over 35 free scripts such as the VisualSite Designer, HTML Editor, Direct FTP, Web Video Player, Flash Photo Gallery, Flash Blogger and lots more.

For your information, the company has been in business for over 6 years and have one of the most reliable servers in the industry are housed in 2 data centers (99.9% uptime). Their award winning support is available 24/7. this does not include the help desk, forums, tutorials and their blog.

Guys who are already stuck with other hosts need not worry. They have a special offer whereby, the paid time (up to 6 months) will be added to their new 12 or 24 month hosting plan with Lunar Pages.

If you utilize the transfer offer which is upto 18 months of hosting plus the extras, it will still cost you $70 (comes to around $3.80 per month).

Lunarpages also offers additional domain names and domain transfers for only $7.95 each.

To get $25 off any 12/24 month Basic, Business, Windows or VPS plan, use the following Coupon code: lunar25off

However please note that the coupons are not stackable. So if you are pushing the transfer time offer please phone in your order and they will apply the extra time plus the discount.
