These plans also include a free domain for the first year. So make use of the savings while you can! Here’s the complete Hostgator coupon code list so you can see all the discounts for every package.

What is a Hostgator Flash Sale?

A Hostgator flash sale is a temporary extra discount for a few days. Normally, throughout the year, Hostgator has a fixed discount tier for its shared hosting plans. During the flash sale, the offers are improved – typically by 5% across all plans.

Because they are temporary, it’s crucial that you take advantage of them when they occur. In that sense, they’re similar to the Hostgator Black Friday deals and the birthday sale. Both of these are like temporary flash sales. Once the period ends, you can’t avail of them any longer.

How to Avail of a Hostgator Flash Sale

Since there are no new coupons, the process to avail of a Hostgator flash sale is simple.

1. Use a “Normal Link” to Go to the Homepage

Make sure you go to the regular Hostgator homepage, and not to a specialized page with seasonal deals. You can click here to go there directly. You’ll see the sales table like this:

During a flash sale, the discounts will be higher than usual. Choose the package you want.

2. Use a Standard Coupon Code

Once again, it’s very important that you use a non-specialized coupon code to get the Hostgator flash sale discount. For example, you can use the one here:

The above promo is a standardized code that will give you the latest flash sale discounts from Hostgator. The coupon will be applied automatically on the next screen after you’ve chosen which package you want to purchase.

3. Don’t Forget the Free Domain!

Unlike other hosts, Hostgator gives you a free domain when you sign up for as little as one year. However, keep in mind that if you’re only going to host for one year, then the following coupon code is likely to give you a higher discount:

The above promo code is specialized for hosting for one year. But if you want to host for longer, the flash sale discount will be higher than anything else during that time.

Difference Between Flash Sales and Seasonal Sales

A Hostgator flash sale will typically not have its own coupon code. This is how you distinguish between ordinary flash sales and the more extensively marketed Hostgator seasonal sales. The latter will have separate promo codes.

Flash sales also tend to be more standardized in their discount increases. Whereas the special event Hostgator sales are more creative. For example, during the birthday sale, you could purchase one year of hosting for just $17! That kind of discount would never be available during a flash sale.

A Flash Sale Isn’t Always the Best Discount!

Just because a Hostgator flash sale is temporary, doesn’t mean that it’s always the best choice for you. As shown above, if you want to host for just one year, then the one-year coupon will be a better choice for you. Similarly, always look around to check if you’re getting the best deal. A flash sale gives higher discounts than normal, and in most cases will be the best option. But not always!
