Wow! Just saw GoDaddy deal for $15 per month for unlimited space, unlimited bandwidth, and unlimited domains. You could host hundreds of sites for $15 a month. I’ve seen some pretty good deals out there but this takes the cake. Oh wait, Host Gator is also one I’ve used and they have a similar plan for $8. I’ve been very happy with Host Gator, from reliability to support they’ve been great! Their plan comes with your own toll free number which includes 100 free minutes! Both the GoDaddy and Host Gator plan comes with a free SSL cert in case you need to have a certificate for ecommerce or other secure transactions. For a control panel I’d recommend cpanel which Host Gator provides. It’s much easier to use. The Go Daddy panel can be difficult and limited in what you can do. Both come loaded with plenty of software so you should be good to go. My favorite of course being WordPress, a great blogging platform! Both plans also come with a credit to Google Adwords in case you’d like to market your new site through pay per click advertising.  Host Gator seems to be a step ahead with this one as well by offering $50 while GoDaddy offers a $25 credit. GoDaddy makes up for this though with a $25 credit to facebook (sorry facebook! wordpress wouldn’t allow me for some reason to link to you). Host Gator offers a 45 day money back guarantee while GoDaddy does not, but both are cheap and you can go month to month. Drum roll please….. dndndndndnd And the winner for the affordable web hosting award goes to HOST GATOR!! Good job Host Gator!! They also provide green web hosting that are powered and cooled by wind power in the state of Texas!! They also have a fall special so signup before Nov 1st to receive 20% off your order. And I have no affiliation with them I swear! Just a happy web hoster!host gator green web hosting

facebook banner adJust clicked a Facebook banner ad that was showing up on Facebook while I was emailing a friend. The banner is to the right here and is targetted to adults that have kids or teens which I do.  Once you click the banner you get taken to a home page that is a good example of a landing page. The page presents you with a few options and has a clear message as to what this site is about. The site also does a good job with video on the sub pages. There’s definately a lot to be learned on this site which I’ll take some more time to peruse.

See below for a few screen shots of the drugfree.org website.

facebook banner adJust saw this banner ad as I was spending some time on Facebook that caught my eye. I was not tempted to go for the offer but thought it was clever. “Get Your Obama Check” was the call to action. Once you click the banner you get taken to the site below. You can click the screen shot to visit the actual site. The site tries to push a free grant writing kit and you only have to pay for the postage. Sounds too good to be true. There’s also a copy of the check the person claims to have recieved from the government. The name doesn’t match up though with the about blurb. The name on the check is Jeffery and it’s listed as Mike under the about blurb to the right of the main content. Hmmm? Possible scam? The site also promotes another site which I’m sure has more to sell. The banner though is very appropriate in our current economic times so I’m sure plenty will click the banner to get their Obama money.

Free Government Money?
