If you’re looking for the best working Hostgator promo code, then you’ve arrived at the right place.
As you all know there are a ton of hosting coupon websites, however most of the codes don’t work or don’t apply more than the normal discount.
However, since we do tutorials here and most people who sign up have actually successfully built their websites, Hostgator has given our viewers on my YouTube Channel a better hosting promo code.
*Updated and Working as of 5th September 2017*
Use Coupon: BONUSCODE for up to 60% off your Hosting & 50% OFF your .com Domain name!

If you are just starting out, I would select the “Hatchling” Plan as it’s the cheapest option.
Go with the “Baby” Plan if you know you will be building more than one website/blog and want to host it on the same server. What this means is that, if you want to build your friends/family or even client website – you can also host it on the same baby plan. So you can either split the cost with them or even charge them and you’ll have your costs covered! (if they are your clients, of course).
Business plan, is mostly for people who want to build eCommerce Stores – cause it includes the Private SSL. (The private SSL is the “lock” symbol you see in browser address bar). This basically helps secure your customers shipping/account information and also payment information. For normal websites/blogs – since you don’t capture this information, you don’t need it.
It’s also important to note, as your business/website traffic grows you can upgrade plans and services without much hassle. The Hostgator team will transfer your website/details to another one of their packages free of charge.
Verdict: Go with Baby, unless you know you will be building more than one website/blog or you’ll be building an eCommerce store.
What you need to do?
To get the best deal when using the Hostgator promo code, I recommend choosing a long term. Such as the 12,24, 36 month options.
For 12 Months – You get 40% off
For 24 Months – You get 50% off
For 36 Months – You get 60% off.
If you want to actually save money, I’d ignore the 1-6 month billing cycles. Cause what happens if after the initial month or 3-6 months, the price will jump back to the normal prices.
If you do opt for more than 12 months, you would be better off getting the 36 month option. Since the price difference from 36 to 24 months is like the cost of a Starbucks coffee.
24 months = $95.40
36 months = $100.08
Difference = +4.68 (and you get an additional 12 months of hosting!)
Make sure you’ve entered the Hostgator coupon: BONUSCODE (It may automatically pre-populate if you’ve click on the special link above.)
Note: If you’ll also notice that your .com domain is only $5.99! Which is another saving on top of your 60% off 🙂 I highly recommending choosing 36 months as it basically means that you get 3 years of hosting for the price of 2!
Make sure you’ve filled in all your details/payment info and click on “I have read and agree to the Terms of Service…” and then Checkout!
Hostgator will send you you’re cpanel details, where you can login to Install WordPress or do whatever you want!
