Starting a Website? Get a Domain Name and Hosting for $19

The cost of a website in the early 90's was equivalent to the cost of a computer to serve the site yourself... thousands of bucks. Now, sites are hosted on shared servers and overall cost is cheaper. Today, io9 readers can get a domain and shared hosting for only $19.

That's $100 off the rack price and amounts to just $1.62 / month. DreamHost to bring you this offer since over a thousand readers at io9's brother site, Lifehacker, voted the company the best web host for their needs.

Whether it's a an app you've created, a blog you want to write, a resume and professional presence, a fan fiction masterpiece for Game of Thrones, your astronomy photography portfolio, or a marketing site for an entrepreneurial venture... you have probably found yourself needing a website at some point. The Internet has changed a lot in the last few decades, but having your own presence is still a necessity for many.

To redeem this exclusive deal, head to the link below. You can sign up for a new account that includes a free domain name and a year of hosting for $1.62 / month which adds up to only $19. Note: This offer works for the first 12 months as a promotion for new customers and then the price goes back to normal (currently $8.95 / mo).
