My WordPress website Hosting special
Unlimited bandwidth and storage for only $72.50 a year (see end of post for updated code & pricing as of June 16, 2009)
It’s no secret here at LOCALNa8ion that we recommend WordPress for Small Business. In fact, here’s our video on our Top Ten reasons WordPress for Small Business beats the pants off the rest.
In a nutshell, WordPress is free and it allows non-technical small business owners to update your website content easily. Updates are crtical to achieving better local search engine rankings so that’s not a trivial thing.
WordPress also makes it easily to perform Local Search Engine Optimization on your website. For example, in my post yesterday I gave readers tips on how to Re-write your website title for better local search results. Writing your new website title may take you 10 or 20 minutes but changing it in WordPress will take you less than a minute.
Now let’s talk about hosting your WordPress site
In the past I’ve published a video on Hosting your WordPress Small Business Web Site on Midphase and using Auto-Install. I now have an update and better pricing for you.
One of the beauties of using MidPhase is that they have a WordPress auto-install option for non-technical users (see the video I just linked to above for instructions).
I’ve continued to use MidPhase for all my WordPress client installations like Il Pasticcio Restaurant and Wine Bar in Savannah Georgia. I’ve had nothing but good luck with them so I can recommend MidPhase from experience.
I’ve got two offers for you that will depend on your needs.
$72.50 a Year | One Website, unlimited bandwidth & storage
First, if you have one website and want unlimited bandwidth and storage (this avoids nasty hosting overage charges) you can now host your site for one year plus register a domain name for only $72.50 a year. Go to MidPhase’s website and use my code GOTAPEX-ROX-01 during the order process in the Optional Coupon Code area. Select the Starter plan for $4.95 a month and then a term of 12 months. You can save even more if you buy 24 months.
$90.50 a Year | Unlimited Websites & databases, plus unlimited bandwidth & storage
If you think you’re going to end up with more than one website then this is the plan for you and it’s just $18.00 more per year. Why would a small business need more than one website? Multiple business lines and separate businesses are two common examples.
To order go to MidPhase’s website and use my code GOTAPEX-ROX-01 during the order process in the Optional Coupon Code area. Select the Unlimited plan for $6.95 a month and then a term of 12 months. You can save even more if you buy 24 months.
Per my blog policy on LOCALNa8ion I fully disclose that I receive a small fee if you signup for MidPhase hosting using my special code GOTAPEX-ROX-01 (see update below) that gets you 3 months free and a free domain for life. You save extra money over just going to MidPhase on your own and I use my commissions to defray the cost of bringing LOCALNa8ion to you for free. Let me be clear, I’m not recommending MidPhase for profit. I recommend MidPhase because I use them for all my client websites and I’ve had continual good experiences with them. I represent that these offers represent a very good value when compared competitively.
Update: The current coupon code as of June 16, 2009 is HOT. Type in HOT in the Coupon code area when you order (prices may have changed)- click on this link.
I am a happy midPhase affiliate and use and recommend their service. The majority of products and services I recommend do not pay me. But on the rare occasion where I’m both very satisfied with a product/service AND they have an affiliate program I will happily use it! If you’re interested in an alternative to midphase that is faster (also more expensive) try MediaLayer’s AppLayer hosting -it’s awesome!
