I just signed up with hostgator and became an affiliate to promote them. If you clink on this “hostgator” link and buy service I may possibly profit from that transaction. I only promote things I like so here’s what I like about them so far.
1. Under the business plan I get a dedicated IP. This might give me an edge in the search engines because it tells Google that I’m serious about my business and I Am willing to pay a few dollars more each month to get a dedicated IP just for my business.
2. Easy to install wordpress. You just basically name your wordpress site, click and your wordpress is installed. Yeah it is easy enough to upload/ftp the files to your server, but I’d rather not wait for all that to happen. It is just so much quicker and easier.
3. Free toll free number. I’m not quite sure what I’m going to do with this since my house rental business already has a phone number, but I am paying over $12 a month for another business that doesn’t. So this might be a big plus for you if you have a new online business that needs a toll free number.
4. Monthly or yearly billing. You can just pay as you go or pay upfront for several years if you like.
If you want to take every advantage you can in the world of the web, then get a dedicated IP and easy wordpress install with hostgator. Go ahead! Click my hostgator link and find out if it is right for you!
