HostGator Holiday Weekend Giveaway

Wednesday, November 23, 2016 by

HostGator ThanksgivingHello, fellow gators and friends of gators!

Are you ready for the yearly holiday shopping mania this weekend?

It’s that wonderful time of year when we finally invest in that expensive item we’ve been drooling over (iPhone 7, anyone?), splurge on our favorite goodies, or buy gifts for our friends and loved ones.

It’s also a time to take a step back and reflect on what we’re thankful for.

 

What HostGator Is Thankful For

At HostGator, for instance, we have a lot to be thankful for this year:

In January, we launched our cloud hosting, which includes lightning fast page load speeds (good for your SEO!), easy resource scaling, and an intuitive performance dashboard.

In June, our employees rallied to donate resources and support to those affected by the floods in Houston.

In September, we released our Website Builder, making it easier than ever for customers to design and build beautiful, professional-looking sites. Oh, and did we mention it comes free with all of our hosting plans?

In October, our beloved blue alligator mascot Snappy turned 14 (and so did HostGator)!

But most of all, we are thankful for YOU, our customers.

Every one of you plays a role in making HostGator possible. Whether it’s helping you out in the middle of the night with your email configuration, answering your questions on social media, or seeing the final product of your brand new website… we’re humbled to be a part of your success. Thank you for trusting your website with us.

 

Announcing The HostGator Holiday Weekend Giveaway!

To show our thanks, the HostGator team has been preparing some mega sales for this crazy holiday weekend ahead of us. From Friday through Tuesday, you can enjoy 65% off all hosting AND $5.99 domains! Plus, we’ll be hosting random flash sales where the savings are even greater!

But that’s not all!

We’re also giving away free HostGator goodies all weekend long!

Whether it’s tweeting, commenting, or sharing – there will be plenty of opportunities for you to win a free Snappy stuffed animal, a HostGator shirt, exclusive free hosting deals or coupons, and even an Xbox or two!

Just bookmark this blog post and check in throughout the weekend to be the first to know about our free giveaways.

The legal stuff: You can read the HostGator Holiday Weekend Giveaway Official Rules here.

From all of us at HostGator (and Snappy, too),

Thank you!
