How to apply a HostMonster discount code on your order
Once you select one of the above shared hosting plans that best matches your requirements you will proceed at checkout. At the time of writing this review, HostMonster has a one-page checkout where you fill in your details, select your hosting term (12 months to 36 months) and then enter your credit card details. There is no coupon field to enter a HostMonster promo code. However, if you attempt to click the back button, as if you pretend that you abandon the shopping cart, then a pop up will come up offering you a deal. If, for example, you have selected the Basic Plan for $4.95, the pop up will offer you the same plan for $3.49, plus Free Site Back Up Pro. So what is normally $7.99 costs you $3.49. This is 55% off on HostMonster Basic Shared Hosting plan.
What “Site Backup Pro” is, and Why You Need It
Basically, Site Backup Pro is a feature that saves website files and SQL dumps on a regular basis to a local PC or the cloud. It offers multiplatform compatibility, and it can work on both small and large sites. Other benefits of this plan include backup scheduling, secure connectivity, diverse database support, and flexible configuration options.
The feature also supports various kinds of software, including scrips, CMS and programming SDKs. While using this feature, you will also get access to detailed backup statistics and other important reports.
Site Backup Pro is a very important feature; and HostMonster will give it to you for free when you pay for the PRIME and the Go PRO shared hosting plans. But if you want it when getting a BASIC or a PLUS plan, you will have to pay $2.99, unless you use the “trick” mentioned above to have a coupon applied on your order which will give you Site Backup Pro free of charge.
