How to use your HostGator Hosting Coupons
A basic discount is applied automatically when you click on one of the HostGator coupon codes above. This ranges depending on the product or plan.
Be sure to update any default coupons entered automatically with the ones from the coupon codes above. For example, the default code for the Hatchling Plan only gives 43% off, whereas the Hostagator deals above include a 60% discount.
STEP #1. Click your chosen HostGator discount
When you click one of the HostGator coupons above a box will pop up with the code, which you can then copy to your clipboard by clicking the “copy” button.
Once you have copied the code, click “Continue to HostGator” to be taken to the relevant page on the website in order to choose your HostGator plan.
Our step by step guide takes you through the process of signing up for the shared website hosting type.
STEP #2. Choose your plan.
Once you have clicked to view HostGators Shared web hosting plans you will need to select the one you wish to purchase.
- If you only ever intend to host one simple blogging website, then you can select the Hatchling plan. Otherwise, the HostGator Baby plan allows unlimited websites.
- If you require better performance, including failover, or want to supercharge your WordPress website then you may wish to consider Hostgator Cloud, or their Managed WordPress Plans (also based on their Cloud technology).
- If you will be running a e-commerce then you should choose the Business Plan which comes with a free dedicated IP and Free SSL certificate.
For a full overview of the different web hosting packages see our detailed review.
STEP #3. Choose domain
The next step is to select your domain. If required you can register a new domain, although I recommend buying your domain separately (see this guide).
They also allow you to do a domain transfer of any existing domain you own at this stage.
STEP #4. Choose a Hosting Plan, Billing Cycle, Username & Pin
This section shows the plan previously selected in Step #2, but you can change it here if you wish.
You must also select the billing cycle, and you will see the respective discounts next to each one. You will add the coupon code a little later, but if you want to see updated pricing now, scroll down and enter the code.
Any discounts only apply to the initial billing period.
You will see that the discount amounts are updated in the Billing Cycle box.
STEP #5. Enter billing information
Enter your billing information. You can pay via credit card or PayPal here. You can pay by other methods such as Cheque, Money Order or Cash, but you should contact support on how and where to send these.
STEP #6. Add Additional Services
Here you have a choice on whether to add additional services:
- SiteLock Monitoring - This is a monitoring service that checks your website daily and immediately notifies you if your website has been hacked or injected with malicious code.
- Professional Email - This is powered by Google. We highly recommend this service, but recommend you sign up directly with Google if you are interested. You can get a 14 day FREE TRIAL here.
- Site Backup - We highly recommend backing up your website with a third-party backup service. CodeGuard is a reputable service, but you may wish to also consider VaultPress if you use WordPress (although this is slightly more expensive).
STEP #7. Enter HostGator Promo Code
Paste the code you copied in Step #1 above into the box and press validate. You should see all the pricing update.
STEP #8. Review and complete order
The final task is to review the order details. Pay particular attention to the pricing to ensure the full discount is applied.
Hostgator Coupon & Billing FAQs
Without knowing your website, and how many visitors it gets it is difficult to provide specific advice.
For shared web hosting, their Hatchling plan only allows one domain, and their Baby and Business plan offer unlimited domains. Their shared hosting should be sufficient to run WordPress, or other software that can be installed using their 1-click app installer. All plans come with unlimited disk space and bandwidth.
You can currently try out Hostgator Hosting for 1 cent when paying monthly, although after the first month if you wish to stay you might consider cancelling, and signing up again with one of the better long term discounts.
However, if you have a business or high traffic website (100,000+ page views per month) you may wish to consider their cloud hosting which is a lot faster, and is relatively cheap for what you get, starting at $4.95 for a single domain.
Furthermore, their cloud hosting comes with failover, meaning that if there is a hardware issue your site will be switched to another server.
You can read more about the Hostgator plans here, or contact them with any queries on live chat.
Hostgator does not currently accept Bitcoin. We recommend Namecheap if this is a requirement.
They accept credit cards, debit cards, PayPal, money orders, bank wires, Western Union and cash.
If wishing to pay my money order, cheques, and even cash, then you can post this to them in the mail and it will be applied to your account.
Yes, they accept payments from verified PayPal accounts.
Unfortunately, they do not accept other third-party payment sites such as Moneybookers, WebMoney, or AlertPay.
For their shared hosting they offer monthly, 3-monthly, 6-monthly, yearly, bi-annual, and tri-annual billing terms. Significant savings can be made if you sign up for longer.
While it is much better value to pay for such a long period in advance, you have to consider that hosting providers can change considerably over that time. While they may be good today, doesn’t mean they will be in two years time.
Furthermore, in a year, for example, you may wish to change provider to take advantage of new technologies or better support.
Only you can decide, but you may wish to check out the Hostgator reviews before purchasing.
While it is very easy to manage domain names with Hostgator with their simple control panel. You can also opt for Domain Privacy Protection to keep your details private in the WhoIs directory, which can reduce the amount of spam emails you receive.
You can find a detailed guide on how to purchase a domain with either GoDaddy or Namecheap and point it to your hosting provider here. It’s easy.

If they do not achieve this level of service they will add one month credit to your account. Note that planned maintenance does not count towards downtime.
Their VPS and Dedicated Servers are covered by their Network Guarantee, which applies prorated credit for the period the network is down.
Yes. Just purchase a VPS Plan and fill out their transfer form and they will take care of it for you.
Alternatively, just purchase the VPS, transfer your files and then point your domain name at the new server as per your welcome email.
If you wish to migrate to a dedicated server, simply contact HostGator support and they will walk you through the whole process.
It is easy to upgrade to their WordPress Cloud plans which are fully managed, as they offer free migrations.
It is based on their Cloud Hosting architecture and offers up to 2.5x load times, CDN, and multiple caching layers. It includes automatic malware removal, Adwords credit, automatic updates to WordPress Core & WordPress plugins, site backup & restore with CodeGuard among other benefits.
For a couple of extra dollars a month, this is definitely worth considering.
