New Hostnine Coupons for August 2015
You can find the actual coupons below this short summary of the latest Coupons this August:
- 15% Off first Invoice – This is our best Hostnine coupon, one that never expires. This coupon will give 15% off your first invoice, so by signing up for longer you will save more. For instance, you can sign up for their Personal Shared Hosting plan for 3 years for just $74.97, a cost of just $2.08 per month. You will struggle to find a better deal from such a quality host anywhere else.
- $5 Off first Invoice – Unfortunately you wouldn’t be able to use this to get your first month free, although it is intended for those who pay monthly. The reason is that their Personal Plan starts with a 6 month term, so if you want to pay monthly you will need to sign up to their Business Shared Hosting Plan that starts at $6.95. This would make your first month just $1.95. It is a common theme with web hosting providers that the best savings occur when you sign up for at least a year, with some giving you exceptional savings when you sign up for 3 or 4 years.
- 49% off Dedicated Servers – You can get a fantastic deal off Dedicated Servers with up to 49% off your first invoice. These kind of offers do not come around often. You can get this offer by going direct to the dedicated server page.

The next stage is to enter your domain information. You will have a choice from the following:
- I’d like to order a new domain – If you sign up for 12 months or more, they will give you a free domain. Please note that the cost of the domain will be deducted if you decide to seek a refund.
- I want to transfer my domain to you – If you wish to transfer your domain to them this is the option you choose. We recommend that you do not do this as you can get a much better deal with a company like Namecheap.
- I want to ‘point’ my domain at you – If you do not wish to purchase a domain, and simply wish to point your existing domain (one you already have, or one you will order elsewhere) this is the option you should choose. You can then update the nameservers with your domain registrar to point to the designated ones specified in your welcome email.
Regardless of which choice you make you will need to specify a domain you will be linking to the account.

The personal plan comes with no free domain, doesn’t have priority support and doesn’t include a free dedicated IP or SSL. An SSL can be purchased for $39.99 and dedicated IP for $2 per month. You are only allowed to host one site on this plan.
The Business Plan is the same as the Personal plan, but includes a Free Domain, and choice of location (UK, Singapore, Hong Kong, Canada, US (East, Central & West) and Australia. You can host unlimited sites on this plan.
The Enterprise is more suitable for those needing SSL & Dedicated IP, as it comes free with these things. It also offers priority support.
In terms of CPU \ RAM and other resources there are no difference between the plans.
Can I pay monthly?
You can pay monthly or even 6 monthly, but it costs significantly more should you wish to do so. For example the Personal plan is just $3.99 (before coupons) per month if you pay for a year or more in advance, but $5.29 if you wish to pay monthly or 6 monthly.

We do not recommend signing up for more than a year (unless you sign up with our top rated host Siteground), especially with large multi-brand companies (such as EIG) as quite often company policies can change (such as moving support abroad) that can significantly affect the service offered.

Hostnine offer free domain with the Business and Enterprise plans. However, only the most common domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .uk, .us, .biz or .info are included.
