WordPress Black Friday Deals on Hosting, Plugins and Themes
Thanksgiving is a great time to stock up on some new WordPress treats :) Many WordPress shops are discounting their products for a limited time. There are many, many deals out there, but here are the ones I recommend.
Rock-solid hosting, security, reliability, one-click staging sites, daily backups…..just a few of the reasons I love WP Engine. If you have a mission-critical business site, paying a little extra for Premium WordPress hosting is absolutely worth it.
The deal: For Cyber Weekend they are offering 30% off your first monthly or annual payment, and 5 months free if you pre-pay for an annual plan!
Coupon code: cyberwknd
Expiration: Monday Nov 28th
Bonus: If you are a WordPress developer, or create sites for clients, I recommend looking into their Developer Program, which features automatic migrations, git integration and much more.
If you’re looking for reliable, shared hosting for your blog or brochure site, with a smaller price tag, Siteground is my preferred host. They are the best in their price-point and provide fast and reliable hosting. They also make it super-easy to add SSL to your site, which is of increasing importance in Google’s eyes.
The deal: 70% off all annual shared hosting plans

You’ll need a domain name to go along with that new webhosting package! It’s better to purchase your domain name separately from your hosting company, for maximum portability of your site, and Namecheap is my preferred domain name provider.
The deal: They will be offering up to 98% off domain registration, SSLs and more.
Dates: Nov 25 – 28th
Desktop Server is my favorite tool for local development. It makes it easy to import existing sites, create brand new sites and work locally.
The deal: They are offering 2 years for $149 . Normal price is $99.95/year

Membership plugins for WordPress can be convoluted and difficult to set up and use. One of the reasons I like MemberPress is that it feels much more streamlined and intuitive to use, yet it’s still very powerful.

20% off the Developer Edition with the coupon code: 20BFCM2016
