Why this post is so short
Before I get started, I just want to say that I am going to make this blog post quick. I had no intention of writing a blog post today. I have a lot of other things going on right now. However, I came across a pretty amazing time-sensitive web hosting deal that I wanted to share with you all. As I result, I didn't want anybody to miss out, so I am taking a few minutes to write this article. But before I jump straight to the deal, let me cover some background about what it takes to run your own website.

Quick Intro
Before you can launch your own website on the internet, you need two things. The first thing you need is a web domain. A web domain is the address that other users will type into their browser when they want to go to your site. Steemit.com and Google.com are both examples of web domains. The other thing that you will need is a web host. A web host is a professional service that stores and displays your webpages for the whole world to see. Also, you can purchase your own domain through your web host, when you set up your hosting account. You can also add additional domains to your account in the future if you desire.

The Deal
This is the reason I am writing this post. Starting now, and ending August 5 at 6:00pm CST, Host Gator is offering 60% off of new hosting plans. So if you are at all thinking about setting up a website in the near future, now is the time to do it. I personally have not seen a better deal from Host Gator, but if you want in, you need to act quick. (Full Disclosure: Host Gator will pay me a commission if you decide sign up through the following link. I do use Host Gator for some of my websites and I have been very happy with their services and support). With that being said, 60% off on new hosting is a great deal in my opinion, but the choice is ultimately up to you.

Link and Code
You simply need a link and a coupon code.
Here is the link: Host Gator 60% Off Hosting
Here is the coupon code: GOLD2016

Additional information
After clicking on this link you will be taken to a Host Gator Page. On this page click the "Get Started Now" button.

Then you will be brought to a page that offers Hatchling, Baby, and Business plans. You can choose whichever you want but I recommend the Baby plan because it allows you to host multiple websites all on the same hosting account. Choose "Sign Up Now!" and that will bring you to the registration page.
Sign Up Now!

Once you are on the registration page, go ahead a fill it out with your information as prompted. The top of the form will ask you to choose your domain. This will be the address where others can visit your website online.

Continue to fill out the form required to set up your account.

The important part
In the section that says, "Enter a Coupon Code", Make sure to enter the coupon code GOLD2016 and then click "Validate" You will then see your hosting price decrease to 60% off!

Then click "Checkout Now" at the bottom of the form.

Thanks for reading, hopefully you have time to get in on this great offer. I am looking forward to showing you some more in depth tutorials on what you can do with your new hosting account. See you next time, and as always, feel free to suggest other mathematics, science, and computer programming topics that you would like me to cover.
