Bluehost is one of the best hosting companies that you can go with if you are looking to start a WordPress blog for a good price. The Butler Journal has been hosted on Bluehost since 2013.You can get your hosting for as little as $3.95 per month (this low price is only available through my unique link). You also get a free domain when you purchase a plan of 12 months or longer. I wrote a step by step guide that will help you get started. You can find it here.
GoDaddy is one of the best places to locate and purchase a domain name. They are advertised as the world’s largest domain name website. I purchased a domain for another website that I had a couple of years ago for under $5. That’s a heck of a price. Head over here to see what domain deals are eligible.
Save You Money
If I can’t find a hotel deal when I’m traveling, I use Airbnb. I’ve used it in places like Miami and Havana, Cuba. Both places that I stayed in were nice. Use this coupon the first time you book a stay with Airbnb, and you can save $40.
I’m a huge fan of Uber. In most cities, Uber is much cheaper than a regular taxi. If you’ve never used them, use this code jasonb2640 for $5 off your first four rides.
Depending on where you’re going, you may see that Uber has surge charges or they may be a little higher than you want to pay. You can use Lyft. Here is a code that will get you $5 off your first ride.
