BlueFur Monster Blog Hosting Deal

written by John Chow on November 26, 2007

The Ultimate Online Profit Model

When BlueFur offered to sponsored TTZ Media’s affiliate contest they set up a special hosting deal to go with it. I didn’t pay much attention to the deal until now. Holy Crap! It’s a great deal!

1 Year Blog Hosting for only $10

For those looking for a reason to leave Blogspot.com or any other free hosting service, this plan is for you. For only $10, BlueFur will set you up with your own WordPress blog plus help install any Plugin-ins you need and host it for one full year.

You want to start a blog but web hosts seem to make it so difficult to install the software, make your own theme, add plug-ins and upgrade it without loosing all your posts. These are very legitimate concerns and our managed blog hosting addresses all of them. Our managed blog hosting may cost a bit more then our standard hosting but the ‘services’ you are provided with quickly make it worth it. Right from the start your account will be setup with the latest version of WordPress. We will help you with adding the plug-ins to your blog that you want and co-ordinate with you when new upgrades come out. For new customers that sign-up in December take advantage of our Holiday Managed Blog Hosting Blow-Out.

This deal is limited to the first 200 people who order. After that it goes back to its normal price of $14.95 per month. On top of all this, you will get five entries into the TTZ Media contest. If I didn’t have nine servers with BlueFur, I would order this plan myself! Seriously, if you’re on a free service like Blogspot.com, you need to get off. You will never be a serious money making blog on a free service. You also can’t apply to TTZ Media with a free site.

Because the price is so low, the JohnChowRocks coupon code does not work for this deal. $10 for one full year of blog webhosting. If you can’t make that back in a year, then you should stay on Blogspot!

Great deal, one of the best I have seen in a while. If I didnt already have a dedicated server, I would be all over this!

Start Blogging November 26, 2007 at 7:41 pm

Agreed. Hell of a deal. I’ll definitely be promoting it. Now if I could find the affiliate program..

Will November 26, 2007 at 9:53 pm

yea same.. this came too late :( oh well.. I’m sure bluefur will have more deals later.

Hi-Tech-IT November 27, 2007 at 4:08 am

$14.95 is nothing great normally per month, hostgator is like $7

SEO Optimization November 27, 2007 at 9:11 am

$14,95 is the regular price, the current “deal” is $10 for one year (at least thats how the headline states).

Ethan Christ November 27, 2007 at 10:33 am

HostGator? …Have you read my post
Abuse HostGator

One Buck Wiki November 27, 2007 at 4:51 pm

I’d simply stay away from shared hosts, they are all unreliable in my opinion if you start getting more than 500 visitors per day…

Karol Krizka November 27, 2007 at 4:58 pm

I am on a shared host and I get over 500 visitors a day. I did not have any uptime problems with them so far. I think the point is that the more popular shared hosts are the unreliable ones, because they have much more websites per computer, so they take on a bigger load.

Etienne Teo November 28, 2007 at 5:04 am

I am sure bluefur is much better than hostgator.

Mike November 27, 2007 at 5:02 pm

true that!

yomi November 28, 2007 at 12:38 am

hi, i also do not have a dedicated server i will have to work on that to maximize the opportunity avaliable.

Nathy's Place November 26, 2007 at 7:02 pm

Awesome deal! Great deal for the newbies to blogging :D

Wahlau.NET November 26, 2007 at 7:15 pm

that is a very good deal indeed

Simon November 26, 2007 at 7:16 pm

Great deal!!

WebCosmo Classifieds November 26, 2007 at 7:17 pm

Thats a great deal! Does the price stay at $10 for unlimited time or limited time?

John Chow November 26, 2007 at 7:53 pm

It’s $10 for one full year of hosting. After that, it goes back to the normal price.

Steven November 26, 2007 at 10:27 pm

Hey John. Now that you’ve fully launched your TTZ media ads, are you going to post monthly income recap separately for that too (for the full amount and not just what you get from hosting it on this blog) =]

John Chow November 26, 2007 at 10:54 pm

TTZ is separate from the blog and will not be included in the income recap.

WebCosmo Classifieds November 27, 2007 at 8:27 am

That is ridiculously cheap! I spend 900 per month for hosting :(

Mike November 27, 2007 at 5:03 pm

still an awesome deal as far as im concerned!

SEO Optimization November 27, 2007 at 9:13 am

Ad actually wonder, if with that deal we can host any type of site or just blog ?

Gary Jones November 27, 2007 at 9:24 am

You can host any site but the account comes installed with a blog and management is only provided on the blog.

SEO Optimization November 27, 2007 at 5:11 pm

This is a bit confusing, can you explain, management is only provided on the blog? I think I will rather contact you via email. I have a site I would rather move to a new host and this seems as a great opportunity. I’ll write with subject Attn: Gary

Wahlau.NET November 26, 2007 at 7:19 pm

what is up with the flower thing? is this deal only for US and canada customer only?

John Chow November 26, 2007 at 7:54 pm

It’s available to anyone who can pay $10.

Mike November 27, 2007 at 5:04 pm

I wonder if it’s still available.. or if they sold out already..

Gary Jones November 27, 2007 at 7:38 pm

Not sold out yet.

Terrence November 26, 2007 at 7:28 pm

That is a great deal. If I didn’t already have a plan, I would jump on it. I have to echo John’s sentiment. Having had a blog on blogger and now having my own blog, the difference is night and day. You can do so much if you control your own blog.

Vik Dulat November 26, 2007 at 7:38 pm

That is a crazy deal! I might just take this offer since I am currently using wordpress.com!

Start Blogging November 27, 2007 at 5:20 am

Make the move. You’ll be glad you did.

Affiliate Confession November 26, 2007 at 7:40 pm

That is an incredible deal! If I didn’t have my blogs hosted with Dreamhost (they suck) I’d jump on it.

Start Blogging November 26, 2007 at 7:42 pm

The move! What are you waiting for? You have a great deal staring in your face and a incredibly bad webhost now. I moved from Dreamhost a little over a year ago and it’s been the smartest move of my webmastering career.

Karol Krizka November 26, 2007 at 7:49 pm

JohnChowRocks worked for me when I placed my order in this morning.

Missy November 26, 2007 at 8:00 pm

is a wp theme included in the deal? just wondering, as there is no mention. its a great deal, no less. :shock:

Gary Jones November 26, 2007 at 8:48 pm

We will install a free theme for you if wish.

The Basic Blog does not come with a custom theme.

MyBlogContest November 26, 2007 at 8:10 pm

I’m using BlueFur hosting. :mrgreen:

Mike Huang November 26, 2007 at 8:36 pm

I would join this deal, but for free hosting…there’s one hosting company that is giving 6 months of free hosting :). Of course I’m not going to post it here and ruin BlueFur.

-Mike

Mike November 26, 2007 at 9:11 pm

That’s a pretty sweet deal!

Innovations & interesting Ramblings November 26, 2007 at 9:25 pm

I will have to jump into it i guess…

Money Blue Book November 26, 2007 at 9:27 pm

Wow that’s a pretty good deal…oh well I’ve already got a good thing going with my current host provider though

Money Blue Book November 26, 2007 at 9:29 pm

How’s Blue Fur’s uptime….many providers guarantee 99% uptime but rarely deliver :???:

MoneyNing November 27, 2007 at 12:08 am

Johnchow.com is up quite a bit!

Innovations & interesting Ramblings November 26, 2007 at 10:01 pm

John…You recommended moneymakers list does not show TTZ media at the top(as one would expect) and is only listed op top of “More moneymakers” list… :)

Phamen November 26, 2007 at 10:09 pm

I’ve nevery tried BlueFur so I don’t know how it works. Anyone has ever used this?

johnCard November 26, 2007 at 10:13 pm

sounds like a great deal, i’m not too happy with my current hosting services.

Vienna November 26, 2007 at 10:53 pm

I guess, I am too late. I went to Bluefur’s site and tried to get this plan but somewhere in the process of buying it, the site lead me to their other plans. I think they’ve got their first 200 people already…or???

Innovations & interesting Ramblings November 26, 2007 at 11:54 pm

nope…if u give your domain name,it goes through…

Michael @ tech November 26, 2007 at 11:15 pm

How many people have joined?

Innovations & interesting Ramblings November 26, 2007 at 11:44 pm

Yes I am in…Just bought http://www.techblissonline.com from godaddy and the hosting services from bluefur…

MoneyNing November 27, 2007 at 12:04 am

$10 is a great deal. If only I dont’ have a hosting already :)

I never knew the regular price was $14.95 though!!!

Dandruff November 27, 2007 at 1:12 am

I don’t believe this, Just two days back I have hosted my new site on another web host.
John couldn’t you get this deal 2 days back !!

Low November 27, 2007 at 1:15 am

Just some ramblings:
I passed BlueFur’s Sales Division as they answer my questions and so i decided to buy one blog hosting plan. Now the painful parts; (1) already paid for the service, and (2) working with the support staffs :lol: .

Anyway, why sales staffs always answer emails (before you decided to pay) faster than support staffs? If sales is done, then that’s it, now go work with support staff and they suck. Now if you already pay, then you suck too. Go away, i’m trying to make another sales. That is one hell of cool customer service strategy.

By the way, i’m sorry i forget introducing myself. Thanks John.

samuro November 27, 2007 at 1:25 am

:grin: Wow!, $10 for one year, pretty great deal…

axa November 27, 2007 at 2:03 am

Nice Deal,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

Shanker Bakshi November 27, 2007 at 2:28 am

see the bottom of your blog recomended money maker: you are saying ” Learn how I went from Zero to over $12,000 a month by blogging” now thats a old story, now you are earning up for US$ 22K per month, ain’t you. correct that figure please.

TeamTutorials November 27, 2007 at 3:45 am

I am sure you will see a ton of conversions on that offer (well, 200 at least). Great price. If you have been thinking about starting your first site I say go for it.

Reverse Funnel System Review November 27, 2007 at 4:04 am

Really good deal, i would recommend everyone this offer too :)

Neil Duckett November 27, 2007 at 4:19 am

Great deal alright, you don{t get much for 10 bucks these days bit this is an exception !

starboykb November 27, 2007 at 5:31 am

Great deal i have to say. Well, i am too mean to saved my $10 buck for Christmas. Not to good for me these days

Home Recording November 27, 2007 at 5:39 am

The problem with great deals usually is that they always come when you are already on to something else. Till the current period of validity runs out with existing hosts, I am afraid, great deal or not, it will have to wait.

Etienne Teo November 27, 2007 at 5:56 am

That is indeed a great deal!

Rich Sage November 27, 2007 at 6:48 am

Hi John, what would you possibly do with 9 servers? My assumption is that johnchow just takes one server to run.

John Chow November 27, 2007 at 8:41 pm

One server powers JohnChow.com, eight powers TTZ.

iamned November 27, 2007 at 8:07 am

This blog is a huge success. Keep up the work.

Low November 27, 2007 at 8:49 am

John, i think you ignore my last comment, but thanks for that. BlueFur hosting works, they didn’t help me (or they are just slower than GoDaddy and i don’t ‘wait’) but now I am jumping in into Wordpress and i am super excited.

Thanks for the great deal John. You rock!

RB November 27, 2007 at 2:19 pm

This sounds like a very good deal. It makes more sense, long term, to purchase your own hosting accounts versus going through a free service, since it give you more control.

Money Blue Book November 27, 2007 at 4:48 pm

Well anything else is better than Hostmonster..

guides8 blog November 27, 2007 at 4:58 pm

good deal

steve dowripple November 27, 2007 at 5:43 pm

How does BlueFur stack up to say ASO?

Bedroom Furniture November 27, 2007 at 7:47 pm

$10 is a great deal, but even $14.95 (normal price) is a good deal for a full year.

Savvy Frugality November 27, 2007 at 11:39 pm

I took the plunge. SavvyFrugality.com was hosted on Blogspot, but I just purchased the $10 deal at BlueFur. It was just too good to pass up. I’m looking forward to making the switch and finally using Word Press for my blog. I got a message that says it take up to 24 hours to get my welcome email, so the only thing to do at this point is wait.

Gerri November 28, 2007 at 11:47 am

Would you recommend I leave Blogspot even if I am only blogging for fun?

Karol Krizka November 28, 2007 at 12:34 pm

If it’s only for $10/year, then definitily yeah. Its a very good deal, plus you’ll feel cooler with your own domain (I think that has to be purchased separately, but it’s still very cheap).

Alb November 28, 2007 at 9:03 pm

Great deal indeed :D Thank you BlueFur.com!

Israel November 29, 2007 at 6:38 pm

10 bucks a year. damnnn.

gsv13 December 5, 2007 at 10:03 am

Was about to buy the plan then decided to check there review on google found http://hostjury.com/reviews/BlueFur
Thanks John! My current host looks better. :wink:

Gary Jones December 5, 2007 at 12:23 pm

I did a search for all of the customers names that posted those libel statements and none of them appear as customers that have ever had hosting with us.

I am sure that with 6000+ customers were bound to have people that aren’t happy.

Here is a list of people that are happy and posted reviews:

http://www.webhostingunleashed.com/bluefur/

David McKendrick December 5, 2007 at 12:32 pm
Gary Jones December 5, 2007 at 6:09 pm

The whois of what domains? Your site does not show any domains. It shows people with Fake names with libel remarks with no ability to reply or remove them if they are not in fact real.

I also don’t think you and your site has received favourable reviews:

http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showthread.php?t=651317&highlight=hostjury

Not to mention the fact that you own a competitor hosting company who would benefit from unfavourable fake reviews. Why anyone should trust your site is beyond me.

David McKendrick December 5, 2007 at 6:26 pm

Gary,
I actually have an awful lot more to gain from all of the companies on my site having positive reviews. Affiliate programs pay much more than my own clients do.

The whois ‘history’ for each of those users’ reviews show they’re legitimate clients. Sadly, it appears your users (one of which is still hosted with you based on the DNS I see) chose to not display them to the public when posting the reviews.

I’m not asking anyone to trust me, I’m just stating the reviews on that page are legitimate & audited to ensure their legitimacy.

Gary Jones December 5, 2007 at 6:37 pm

You benefit from having web hosts that pay $100+ affiliate fees per sign-up. If all the other hosts on your sites have negative reviews then of course people will use your positive reviewed affiliate hosts.

Look at your Top 3 US hosts. They all pay very high affiliate fees but have next to no bad reviews. I can do a quick search and find 100′s and 100′s of bad reviews of those hosts. Mysteriously they are not listed on your site.

I can not trust any review of a person that does not provide proof they were using our service. I notice you also danced around the fact that there is no way to reply or remove any fake reviews.

“I’m not asking anyone to trust me, I’m just stating the reviews on that page are legitimate & audited to ensure their legitimacy.”

To know that the are legitimate we would actually have to trust you which your not asking anyone to do (and which I don’t).
