#Cheap #reseller #hosting
Many websites and blogs will run fine on cheaper web hosting plans. However, when looking for cheap hosting you don’t want to find cheap service instead! And of course you still want your obligatory support for PHP & MySQL web scripts. We believe the sweet spot option is to get a discount or a promo on a standard hosting plan from a reputable hosting company. Check out the selection below for the best values in the web hosting industry with the best prices and promos refreshed every day:
Most of the web hosts above will give you a special promo price, either via a coupon or automatically if you sign up through this page. Disclaimer: Some of these hosts will pay us a commission in addition to giving you a promotional price. These commissions are reinvested in the development of the b2evolution software.

Moniker DNS down again: an alternative solution!
Many of us have registered domain names at Moniker.com. And while they are both effective and efficient at registering and managing your domain names for a low “bulk” price, their DNS servers have proven to be utterly unreliable with several day long outtages over the last year.
This means your domains are all good and safe but if you use Moniker’s own DNS servers (instead of, for example, your web hosting company’s name servers), people may experience additional delay in trying to access your site or they may even not get there at all.
One solution would be to use your web hosting’s provider’s DNS servers. But these tend to not be very reliable either. and to say the least, they are very slow.
So we went out to look for a dedicated DNS service provider. There are many but only a handful use AnyCast. AnyCast allows your visitors to use a DNS server closest to them, cutting latency times and getting their DNS queries answered 10 to 100 times faster than with standard UniCast DNS providers.
Out of these, only one has affordable pricing: DNS Made Easy . For less than $30/year can host DNS service for 10 domain at lightning speeds!
Go check out the speed of your current DNS service here at ultratools.com. Look at the max delays! With Moniker DNS servers you may get delays as long as…
Dealing with Price Increases at Renewal
It has become fairly easy to find great cheap hosting deals for shared hosting as well as for VPS hosting.
However, these cheap prices don’t always stay cheap forever!
Unfortunately, as many of our users alerted us, we found out that it has become an industry standard for hosting companies to lure new customers in with cheap sticker prices only to abruptly increase the monthly price at the end of the first payment term. For example, you may sign up at $1.99 / mo for the first 2 years but as your plan auto-renews at the end of those 2 years, your price may go up to $5.95/month.
Many customers don’t realize this until it is too late and they have already been billed for a full year renewal at the increased price. Don’t be one of them!
How to be a smart shopper
Solution 1: Be prepared to change hosts frequently
When you sign up for a cheap web-hosting plan, you will be able to lock in the low price for 12, 24, 36 or even 48 months if you pay in advance for the whole period. But as renewal time comes up, you will have to pay the higher rate. or switch to another webhost. and that is what most smart shoppers actually do! This is very similar to switching cell-phone plans to always take advantage of the best deals.
