TMDHosting has some great coupons for new customers, allowing you to get a massive 50% off their web hosting if you sign up for a year or more.
TMDHosting is one of our new (as of November 2015) favorite hosts, discovered by accident, primarily because of their excellent and more importantly incredibly quick customer support. In fact, TMDHosting claim to respond to all tickets within 15 minutes, and you can read our TMDHosting Review to see how they performed in our tests.

How to use your TMDHosting Coupons
1. Click your chosen Coupon Code
The Coupon above will open up a new browser window, and activate the relevant offers. You will clearly see the offer on the website as the discount will be showed in the pricing tables \ order form.
In the example above, you can now click the “Get Started Now” button to choose between the two different Shared Web Hosting Plans.
2. Choose Your Web Hosting Plan
You will see on the next page, a choice between two plans. The first “Amazing Package” only allows one domain on the account, but gives the best discount. The second “Unlimited Package” allows unlimited domains. You can check all the differences between the two plans by clicking the “Compare all plans” link underneath the pricing tables.
Once you have decided on your chosen plan, click “Sign Up Now”.
3. Get Your Free Domain Name
You get a free domain name with all plans. You should be aware that the cost of any domain name is not covered by their 60 day money back guarantee. Furthermore, the amount withheld from your refund is $13.99 for .co.uk and .org.uk domains, and $19.99 for all others. This is more than the cost of the domains if you bought them separately at TMDHosting.
If you are happy with the pricing \ convenience of having your domain located at your hosting provider then feel free to enter the domain you wish for free in the box shown. Otherwise, we recommend purchasing your domain via Namecheap.
In our tutorial, we will use a domain we already have \ intend to buy elsewhere:
4. Enter Billing Information
The next page covers steps 4, 5, 6 and 7 but we will deal with them under separate headings as there is a fair amount of information to cover.
At the top of the page you will have the option to enter your account name, address, chosen password and method of payment. Payments can be made by Credit \ Debit card or Paypal. If you are an existing customer you may log in to link the new purchase to your account and save having to enter in your personal details again.
5. Choose Billing Period
You can sign up to Shared Web Hosting monthly, yearly, 2-yearly and 3-yearly plans. The best deal is for 3-yearly plans.
6. Select any Extra Services
Even thought we really like TMDHosting, we are a little frustrated at their Extra Services List, with particular reference to their Sitemap Generation, Google Webmaster Account and Site Verification and Google Analytics integration. These are very easy to implement for free yourself, especially if you use WordPress. Certainly, we would not recommend paying for them. We will be doing a few tutorials on this in due course (just to prove the point), but in the meantime feel free to get in touch and we will help you for free.
In addition, their Domain privacy is automatically selected, even if you haven’t purchased a domain with them. Plus, it is very expensive compared to a company such as Namecheap.
The only item we might recommend is the Sitelock Basic. According to their website: “Get Total Website Security, Protect Your Website from hackers, malware, and other threats. Trust Seals and Daily Security Scanning for up to 25 pages.”. Note that the basic plan is different to the plans offered on the Sitelock website, in that it is not a firewall, nor does it offer any protection. It simply alerts you if your website has been compromised, but for $19.95 this is a reasonable price to pay for such a service.
7. Enter your TMDHosting Promo Code (if any) & Checkout
While most of the offers are link activated, from time to time we will have limited time offers that require a promotional code. If applicable, you can enter that code here.
Once you are happy with your order, accept the Terms of Service (you should always read this to check refund policy restrictions and usage restrictions (particularly relevant with “unlimited hosting”) and click “Checkout”.
You hosting account should then be set up straight away, and an email sent to you with all your log in details. You will also be able to access your client area immediately after purchase:
As with all hosts, occasionally orders will trip a fraud filter. If this is the case simply get in touch with their support via live chat and they will let you know of any verification requirements.
TMDHosting Coupon & Billing FAQs
Can you advise which hosting plan I should choose?
For shared hosting, the choice is simple. The Amazing Plan only allows one website to be hosted, whereas the Unlimited plan allows unlimited website. As such it will depend on your requirements.
If you need more resources, then you can choose between VPS hosting or Cloud Hosting. We queried their Sales support on the difference and they had this to say:
We further asked why no CPU amounts were specified on the Cloud Hosting:
When further querying them which they would recommend for a blog with 2000 page views per day, they pointed us to their lowest VPS Plan.
If you need further advice, we recommend speaking to them on live chat and give them details of your needs so they can advise the best solution.
Can I pay monthly?
Yes, you can pay monthly. However, their monthly plans cost considerably more than their yearly plans. We recommend paying for at least annually if at all possible to make the most of your TMDHosting Coupons.
What other billing cycles doe they offer?
They offer yearly, two-yearly and three-yearly plans.
Do they offer a Free domain?
A free domain is offered with all hosting plans, however this includes only the most common domain extensions such as .com, .net, .org, .uk, .us, .biz or .info. Other domain extensions will be charged extra for.
Note that if you exercise the right to refund, any free domain offered will be charged for at the prevailing rates (.i.e. deducted from the refund).
Do you have a Demo of your cPanel so I can see if I like it?
Can I preview the Client Area before signing up?
Yes, you can log into a demo client area account here.
I didn’t register a free domain on sign-up. Can I still get free domain?
Yes, but only within seven days of when you purchased your hosting account.
If I renew my services, will my Free domain name be renewed?
Yes, if your free domain was registered at sign up and is the primary domain active for that account. This is quite unique, as many hosting providers only provide the free domain for the first year.

You can pay by Credit \ Debit Card or Paypal.
Does TMDHosting accept Paypal?
Yes, you can pay for your hosting services using PayPal.
Does TMDHosting accept Bitcoin?
They do not accept Bitcoin at this time. If paying by Bitcoin is essential, then we suggest Namecheap.
Is there a money back guarantee? If so how long?
There is a 60-day money back guarantee. Please note that any money back guarantee does not include add-ons, such as domain registrations or SSL certificates. These would be deducted from the refund.
Can I use an SSL Certificate that I purchased elsewhere?
Yes, for $40 you can buy a dedicated IP and SSL Installation. This can be ordered from within the client area.
How to I cancel my services?
In case you need to cancel, whether for a refund during the money back guarantee period, or near the end of the term, you need to do so via your client area:
1.) Go to your Client Area -> Services -> My Services. 2.) Next to the hosting package you wish to cancel click on the “View/Edit” button. 3.) A new page will pop up – at the bottom of it you will find the “Cancellation” button from where you can cancel your service.
If you wish for a refund under the guarantee, you will then need to submit a ticket to the billing department.
Will my price go up when my hosting plan renews?
If you have taken advantage of one of the great discounts on your initial invoice then yes, your hosting fee will increase on renewal.
Can I renew my hosting before renewal?
Yes, you can renew your hosting at any time by submitting a ticket to the billing department. Otherwise you will receive an invoice two weeks prior to renewal which you can access via Client Area -> billing -> invoices.
