Web Hosting Black Friday 2018

Updated: November 8, 2018

If you're looking for web hosting Black Friday deals, I honestly think this will be worth it. For experts, because of the number of websites you can build and for the security aspects. For newbies, because of the tremendous amount of training and the community. There's no need to go through any technical installations or manage a complicated control panel. Literally no need to worry about spams or hacking problems, either.

In fact, you can join and giving your site(s) a try TODAY, and take advantage of the Black Friday deal when the weekend comes. The offer's open between November 23rd (Friday) - 26th (Monday). Just two restrictions;

  • You must be using WordPress (already installed, ready to use in seconds), and 
  • You can have up to 50 websites (25 of your own domain plus 25 subdomains) but they have to be your own, i.e. not building websites for your clients.

If you think this will suit you, take the Black Friday 50% off sale by WA Hosting ("SiteRubix") offered by Wealthy Affiliate.

Web Hosting Black Friday 2018

Never Choose A Cheap Web Hosting

If you shop around, you'll find quite a few companies who offer a web hosting service for as low as $3 per month. Firstly that's the most basic shared hosting package and the price is normally for 3 years contract. So you'd have to pay for 36 months x $3 = $108 in advance. If you check the 12-months option, the price is much higher around $8 per month.

Cheap web hosting services - I've been there and wasted my money in the past. There are disadvantages such as; 

  • Web security not included: you have to pay extra to protect your site from cyber attacks. It's so critical that the site protection really should be included in the price, but it's not.
  • Comment spam protection not included: even decent web hosting services don't include this feature, so you'd have to have an anti-spam comment plugin installed in your WordPress. 
  • Slow loading speed: the server is shared by so many websites, and it affects your page loading speed, hence SEO. (Because faster loading sites are prioritized by Google)
  • Useless website backup: they often offer to back up your site daily - but only up to 25-30 pages. Cheap web hosting services are only ideal for a small, sales funnel containing a few pages. Never for blog or ecommerce sites.
  • Too much downtime: this is probably the worst of all. The server goes out of action for too long, too often. They often advertise as "99.9% Uptime" which is still not good enough, but in reality it's even less. Means you often find your website down for a few hours - half a day.
  • Lack of technical support: often so many users experience the same problem, therefore the support staff are incapable of responding to every user in time.

$24.92 Per Month: More Than Value For Money

The normal price is $49 per month, that's because as the name suggests, Wealthy Affiliate is an online marketing training community. The price includes all levels of video & text training, weekly webinars plus Q&A forums as well as secure web hosting. The 50% discount is offered only once a year during the Black Friday weekend.

Double Hosting Technology

Double Hosting Technology keeps the websites awake at all times.

No Techie Setups Required

Because it's designed for all kind of users including newbie bloggers, most of the technical elements are taken care of. You don't have to worry about installations, security backups or anti-spam protections.

For example if you wanted to delete an entire website and start all over again, normally;

  •  From the Control Panel, you'd have to delete only the files that are applicable, or
  • contact the technical support to do it for you, and
  • You might have to confirm your domain name that you're using with the support.

But with "wahosting", all you have to do would be to click "Delete the site" button - there's no technical complication. (Although the button is not easily found, in order to prevent you from clicking accidentally). Then simply to click "Build a new site".

The Black Friday Price Includes:

  • Site builder (WordPress pre-installed) up to 50 websites in total.
  • SSL certificate
  • 30Gb web space
  • Amazon c3.large speed
  • 500,000 visitors/month bandwidth
  • FTP access
  • "Double-hosting" to prevent downtime
  • Entreprise security + BotNet security
  • SiteProtect (spam blocker)
  • Site comments and feedback from other members
  • Entire website backup every 24 hours
  • Website technical support 24/7 (average response time 10 minutes)
  • 1,000's of hours worth of webmaster coaching + affiliate bootcamp training
  •  Weekly webinars
  • Community support forum 24/7 (average response time 1.8 minutes)
  • Live chat 24/7 (immediate response)

Locked Price

Great news is, once you pay $299 per year during this Black Friday weekend, the price will be locked indefinitely. The renewal price will always be $299 every year as long as you keep your account.

What You Can Do

What you can do is to create your account for FREE right now (no credit card info required). There is a limited access to free members - no access to webinars or live chat, for example. Free members can only use subdomains, not your own domain name. Then there will be 2 options;

  • Wait until Black Friday and take advantage of the 50% off, or
  • Become a premium member within 7 days for $19 for the first month. Comes Black Friday and pay $299 for a year - the $19 you paid initially will be refunded on a pro rata basis.

I genuinely think this will be more than the value for money, whether you want to take advantage of the training platform and the community help or not. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to leave a comment below.

  1. I thought Wealthy Affiliate was a make money online program…
    I didn’t know you could sign up just for web hosting…?
    Is there a minimum threshold of commission you have to make, or can you stay just to have your site hosted? Please clarify, thanks.
    Still a little too expensive, I guess the price is worth as a package.

    1. Hi Victor, yes you can certainly join Wealthy Affiliate just for web hosting purposes indeed. As I said in the post, it’s WordPress only. which is ready to use in seconds. It also offer a domain registration service too (locked price of $13.99 per year, meaning there will never be a price increase at renewals).

      You don’t have to make commissions or anything whatsoever. It’s all up to you to make a commission or not, which affiliate programs you engage with, even sell your products/services on your site or use your site for charity purpose or just for fun. No restrictions! (Obviously promoting violence, sexually explicit items, discriminations etc. are strictly prohibited).

      It’s a great opportunity – any more questions don’t hesitate to get back to me. Thanks for your comment!

  2. Hi Ray, it’s a shame I wish I had known earlier. I just renewed my web hosting . May be next year I will try it. It sounds like it is worth paying money. Thank you. Fahad

  3. I was a Wealthy Affiliate member between 2015-2017. I quit because I didn’t make any money from the healthcare niche I chose and my mentor was not as helpful as I expected.

    I don’t have enough technical knowledge to comment about the web hosting but I can say it was fairly easy to start building a website. I feel my experience is wasted right now because I no longer do affiliate marketing.

    If I join again please, can you be my mentor and walk me through to find a good niche, is there any particular area I should look for?

    Thank you very much.
    Best regards,

    1. Hi Mark, thanks for sharing your experience. I can certainly help you find good niches for you, so can other members. Perhaps when you re-join, you can follow as many other expert members, then they can give you extensive advice too. As I mentioned in the post, Black Friday will be the perfect opportunity in terms of value for money. Any more questions don’t hesitate to contact me any time!
