Top 10 Black Friday Hosting Deals 2013 – That I Purchased

The popularity and demand of my done for you private blog network service has been great. One thing I have been having to do is add more and more hosting accounts to my network since no clients site is on the same hosting account. One exciting project I am working on is creating a very detailed comparison of all these hosting companies speed, support, etc and will share my finding in a couple months.

So Black Friday has offered a great opportunity to add accounts at steep discounts.

After my VA’s have done research these are the 10 accounts I added to my network today so I thought I would share that research with everyone…



The 10 Unlimited Hosting Accounts I Purchased on Black Friday 2013

All these hosts offer unlimited domains, CPanel or similar and are popular reliable hosting companies.

Each of these hosts I am now (or again) a customer of. I haven’t obviously had time to try them all out but my VA’s did a lot of research to recommend these 10 for adding to our network.


1. IPage – 88% Off – $1/month

This is a huge sale from a host that has been pretty solid to work with in the past.


2. WebHostingBuzz – 75% Off – $1.74/month

Quality CPanel hosting with good uptime and fast servers is the not so unique selling proposition of WebHostingBuzz. I will see how they perform.


3. HostGator – 75% Off – $1.98/month

Although the service has dropped their discount makes it hard to pass up – 75% OFF!


4. WebHostingPad – 80% Off – $0.99/month (UPDATED)

This hosting company has won a lot of awards, unfortunately they are all a few years old. I will have to see if some of the more recent reviews turn out to be true and they don’t have the best up time.


5. Eleven2 – 25% Off – $5.00/month (UPDATED)

I am excited to try this host. I have had them on my list to add after hearing about their high speed and their new age looking interface.


6. FatCow – 65% Off – 3.15/month

FatCow has been a solid host for me with great up time and limited other problems of any sort.


7. iPower – 65% Off – $3.25/month

iPower I am sure is another member of one of the larger hosting conglomerates. I expect reasonable service but I always like to try and get hosting companies outside of the conglomerates for data centre IP diversity.


8. MyHosting – 50% Off – 3.25/month

I am surprised I have never used this company before since it is a trusted name in the hosting world. Popular choice with good reviews and unlimited hosting.


9. Arvixe – 50% Off – $3.25/month

Arvixe has been getting pretty solid reviews for a number of years and so expect to get exactly what I am looking for out of them. I have little concern with Arvixe and think they will be a great new host.


10. BlueHost – 50% Off – $3.95/month

BlueHost has been really annoying lately for me, lots of too many file warnings etc but it is still a very popular service so hosting a small portion of my done for you clients sites on it just makes sense.


After my VA’s scoured the internet these were the 10 unlimited hosting accounts I decided to add to my network today.

Are there any better ones that I missed?

Thanks for the heads up Jon.

Question for you, have you been able to use a single account from any of these webhosts to host several domains with unique C blocks?(all within a single account) Or have you been setting up just one domain per account.
I’ve had success getting multiple C blocks on a single account with DreamHost and IX Web Hosting, so of I can do so with these as well, I’ll probably take advantage of these offers.

Some of these prices look really good.

    Jon says November 29, 2013

    A lot of these I have never used before so I can’t say – hostgator and bluehost I have not. C blocks is one thing but there is still a data-center footprint with 1 company even if you get different C Block IP’s.

Dan says November 29, 2013

Sweet deal John. I just added 3 hosts (two for expired domains and one for my next niche site). PS webhostingpad is 0.99 cents a month :). Looking forward to three new expired domains.

Pleasant surprise and my only purchase on black friday.

    Jon says November 29, 2013

    Weird it was $1.99/month for me…man I got ripped off 😉

    Thanks for signing up via the affiliate link and have a look for me email with more details/timing about the domains.

      Dan says November 30, 2013

      They robbed ya ;). Saw the e-mail looking forward to those domains!

Hamish says November 30, 2013

iPage and Webhostingbuzz INCLUDE 1 free domain registration.
iPage needs domain protection however – $10 – so 1 yr + domain + privacy = $22
Webhostingbuzz I think has automatic privacy – 1 yr + domain + privacy = $30
Webhostinghub – yeah only .99c, so 1yr + domain + privacy = $27

    Hamish says November 30, 2013

    Actually Webhostingbuzz isn’t that good – they own the domain and it costs $12 to get it from them, so an alright deal as long as you stay with the, Not sure about ipage.

    Jon says November 30, 2013

    Hi Hamish, Thanks for sharing the price with domain privacy activated. I didn’t take advantage of the free domain since the price is the same with privacy other several other registrars. Glad you were happy with the first domain and I will make sure to get you a couple more solid ones!

Hieu Nguyen says November 30, 2013

Thank you very much for your deal! It motivates me to set up my first blog network ever! Like Dan, I’ve just purchased 3 hosting plan (2 iPage, 1WebHostingPad), but one has some issues. I’ll email you when receiving order confirmation mail. Looking forward to 3 expired domains.

Hieu Nguyen.

    Jon says November 30, 2013

    Hi Hieu, thank for taking advantage of the deal! I will get you some solid expired domains!

      Hieu Nguyen says November 30, 2013

      All three order comfirmation emails sent! Waiting for your emails.
      Thanks Jon.

        Jon says November 30, 2013

        Email sent – VA’s searching for domains now. You will receive in 7 days or less.

steve wyman says November 30, 2013

Hey jon

Could not resist 🙂 Will send over order confirmations shortly


    Jon says November 30, 2013

    Thanks Steve, confirmation received and email back has been sent. My VA’s will get you some more domains to help you build your empire!

ton says November 30, 2013

Hello Jon. My first comment on your site and i hope it won’t be long 🙂

My question is if we can use reseller account for ip diversity. I’ve read that you can create reseller subaccounts, put each site of your network on different subaccount with different unique C block. Some hosting provider gives you for $18/month almost 100 subaccounts or 100 different IP’s. I think is even more cheaper than some hosting provider that gives you 15 IP’s for almost $8/month.

Your opinion is welcome and most awaited!

    Jon says December 1, 2013

    Hi Ton, yes that is one option I have not done it but I know it is popular. Host9 is a popular choice for doing this since you can select different data centers to use.

Drew says November 30, 2013

I’m in for a few as well. Thanks for the great info… and the bonus of the expired domains. Will send you confirmations shortly.

    Jon says December 1, 2013

    Thanks Drew, I will get you some good domains!

      Drew says December 2, 2013

      Jon – or anyone else on the thread with multiple hosting accounts…. just curious – how have (or will) you deal with the dramatic price increase at the end of the year, when the discount price expires? Most of these deals seem to be for new customers/first year.. without the option to extend at the discount? Will you pay the full rate? Or xfer your domains to a new host with 2014 black friday discounts?
