Heads Up: I am no longer a fan of Wealthy Affiliate. I explain part of my reasoning here, here, here, here, here and here. There are alternatives. The content below may not fully reflect my current opinion of Wealthy Affiliate.

Superseding Wealthy Affiliate with Domain Cost Club in 2021

Superseding Wealthy Affiliate with Domain Cost Club

I moved my website hosting from Wealthy Affiliate Managed WordPress Hosting to Domain Cost Club cPanel Hosting. Together with reliable hosting, I achieved great savings on my webhosting costs.

I have been a consecutive member of Domain Cost Club at this stage for over six years. Domain Cost Club provide reliable cheap effective domain registration for Domain Cost Club Members. They also provide free domain privacy services for each domain you have registered with them.

Some domain registrars still continue to charge up to $14.95 per domain per year for domain privacy services. Becoming a Lite Member of Domain Cost Club is currently $9.99 per year. This allows you to registrar or renew five domains at really good prices. Higher tiers of Domain Cost Club membership cost more. However allow you to registrar or renew more than five domains at really good prices.

Domain Cost Club’s main business is providing domain names using at-cost pricing for their membership. Paying an annual membership fee allows you to registrar and renew domain names using their at-cost pricing. This is typically way cheaper than other providers. They don’t charge additional fees for domain privacy services which is another good point. Click here to read my review of Domain Cost Club.

Do Domain Cost Club Offer Webhosting?

Yes, they do. They offer cPanel Hosting. Domain Cost Club cPanel Hosting comes with the Softaculous Apps Manager installed. Installing WordPress with the Softaculous Apps Manager is very easy, very simple, very effective and very efficient. For me this hosting is way more cost effective than Wealthy Affiliate hosting. And very bit as good. There are a number of differences. Comparing different hosting offers is extremely difficult. This is because different webhosts offer different things.

I consider the cost of Wealthy Affiliate premium membership to cover hosting. The Wealthy Affiliate membership includes other benefits which I consider as “free bonuses”. I don’t really need them. Futhermore I do not think I would buy those other benefits if they were sold separately.

In my opinion, Wealthy Affiliate need to provide more tiers and more real choice in their offerings rather than using bundled options which you may not really need or require.

Domain Cost Club also provide cPanel Hosting for domains currently registered with them. Their cPanel Hosting annual charge is way cheaper than other providers. Their support is only by email and is during business hours Monday to Friday. I hardly use their support as their hosting for me is very reliable.

If having 24/7 support is important to you, consider Bluehost. They have a large range of web hosting options which gives you a lot of choice. Click here to read my article discussing some of Bluehost’s hosting offerings.

Final Verdict

Domain Cost Club cPanel Hosting is every bit as good as the expensive managed WordPress hosting solution provided by Wealthy Affiliate, in my opinion and in my experience.

Domain Cost Club also provide cPanel Hosting for domains currently registered with them. Their cPanel Hosting annual charge is way cheaper than other providers.

Why Pay More for Domain Names or Website Hosting?

Good question.

Domain Cost Club sells domain names at really good prices to members. They also optionally sell cPanel hosting at really good prices to members. The domains must be registered with Domain Cost Club to get that cPanel hosting. Of course, terms and conditions apply.

At the moment, I have all of my domain names registered/renewed with them since the middle of 2015. I have been using their cPanel hosting for all of my websites since March 2021. So far so good. 🙂
