Happy President’s Day everyone! To honor our founding farther, I got together with HostGator (they host this blog) to do a promotion for John Chow dot Com readers.

HostGator has given me a coupon code that will take 40% off any HostGator web hosting package. With the discount, you can start your blog for as little as $2.97 a month!
All you have to do is order a web hosting plan from HostGator, and enter the coupon code JOHNCHOW40 at checkout to receive the discount. Below is a video on how to apply the coupon.

All In One SEO is the ultimate SEO plugin for WordPress and will help your blog rank higher with the search engines. In addition, I’ll set up your new blog with search engine friendly URLs. Google Sitemap will help get your blog pages indexed quickly on Google. W3 Total Cache will make your blog load a lot faster and handle more traffic. Show Top Commentators encourages readers to comment on your blog. WP Stats will let you know who is visiting your blog. Akismet kills off the comment spam and After The Deadline will proof read your blog post for grammar and spelling. These are some of the best WordPress plugins available and they’re included free with the WordPress installation service.

I will also include instructions on how to change all your login passwords. I will not keep any of the forwarded information from HostGator. Once WordPress has been set up, I will destroy the email.
Not only will you get your blog hosting at a huge discount, but every hosting plan at HostGator comes with $100 of Google AdWords credit that you can use to promote your new blog. Start your blog for 40% off, get WordPress and plugins setup for free, and get $100 of AdWords credit. You won’t find a better deal anywhere!
