As a former web hosting founder and executive I know how competitive the industry can be, the barriers and cost to entry are low and the profit margins on are high. That combination creates as very competitive and cut throat environment. Not great for the companies, but really good for the buyers of their service.
One way to benefit from this competitiveness for customers is through Web Hosting Coupons. A great majority of hosting companies offer discounts or coupons as a way to entice new customers to their service. Some coupons offer a month of service for.01 or others take 20% off the total cost of the service plan. The size of the discount that web hosting companies offer through their coupons is often correlated to the price of plans and services associated with those coupons.
Web Hosting Coupons are a great way to test a company out without spending a lot of money on a service plan. If the service and support that a company offers is not up to par, then the use of the discount or coupon really helps make the experience less costly one.
Finding current discounts and coupons can be a bit tricky; one common method is to type the name of the company followed by coupon or coupons into your favorite search engine. From my experience the results tend to be hit or miss as some of the coupons posted on web sites may be expired and out of date.
Whether you find a coupons through Google or another site, in these times any one who buys web hosting service should never pay full retail price when there is a plethora of coupons that companies offer floating around. Do your research and utilize what these companies are offering.
