Every year I post my favourite Cyber Monday Deals of hosting and tools I use myself and recommend.
I love Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales as they not only help my business budget they allow me to buy tools that I am unsure about so give me a chance to test them without paying full price. I buy as many annual deals as I can as the savings really add up and I will buy a lifetime deal of any products I love.
Whilst there is plenty of great deals online, my list is of things I use myself that I know are excellent. I have been a developer for 30+ years and using primarily WordPress for over 5 years. I have used lots of tools, some great, some I wish I hadn’t wasted money on.
Without further ado, here is my list of recommended Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals for 2021. Please note that I will update this page when the details of new deals are released.
Domains, Hosting & Email Cyber Monday Deals
Website Hosting plays an important role in SEO and in 2021 when Google Core Vitals becomes part of ranking, fast website hosting will become crucial.
NameCheap The Best Domain Registrar
This is the best company for buying domains, they always have great prices + have excellent customer service. Their BFCM deals are excellent this year
Domains: Up to 98% off top domain registrations, and 38% off transfers
Shared Hosting & email: Up to 99% off Stellar Hosting, EasyWP, and Private Email
SSL & Security: Up to 72% off web security products including SSL Certificates, VPN, and PremiumDNS
Hostinger – up to 90% Discount on hosting & domains
Cheap, decent quality hosting that is cheap as chips!
Cloudways – 4 months Free Hosting- My Personal Preferred Host
Not a good choice for beginners, Cloudways is for more tech-savvy individuals who want fast high-quality VPS hosting and are comfortable with setting up things themself. This is my personal hosting choice but it’s less easy to use than many other hosting options
Very fast loading and great security including built-in caches coupled with CloudwaysCDN for fast performance.
There are many choices with Cloudways – PHP based applications (WordPress, Magento, WooCommerce PHP, Laravel, PrestaShop, Drupal, etc) and industry-leading cloud providers, AWS, GCE, Linode, Vultr & DigitalOcean. My favourite is Vultr HF.
Siteground cheap and good to self manage
I have recommended Siteground to many self-hosting clients due to the ease of use for non-techies. They opened a Sydney Data Centre in 2020 with 24/7 customer care. When buying hosting, add the malware scan to keep your site safe too. A year of hosting for 1 site + security protection is going to cost you around $100. Bargain!
WPX Hosting – 2 months for $2
I recommend WPX to clients wanting to self-host and have multiple websites. A lot of great inclusions, very fast servers and really helpful customer care.
WordPress Plugins Cyber Monday Deals
My Favourite WordPress Theme for Website and WooCommerce Stores. Lightweight with a lot of great features that are unmatched in my opinion.
Amelia Bookings Plugin →
The best bookings plugin I have used. Set up your schedule & allow clients to book in times for you to approve. Send automated emails, take payments and much more.
My new favourite form builder. Very lightweight and the Pro version has some of the best form options and integrations I have seen. The team at WP Manage Ninja have developed a few really great tools and have excellent customer service.
The best Email Marketing and CRM for WordPress. Automate your forms and create newsletter sequences
The free version of Elementor is great but when you buy Pro you can do so much more. Having used all the well-known Page Builders on the market, Elementor is hands down the best in my opinion.
In my opinion the best WordPress caching plugin on the market.
An all-in-one cloud-based SEO and digital marketing tool to run on and off-page website audits, analyze competitors, track rankings, collect and group keywords, monitor backlinks and more.
I hope you found a deal or 2 in my Cyber Monday List that is helpful for you and your business
until next time
