'ZDNet Recommends': What exactly does it mean?

ZDNet's recommendations are based on many hours of testing, research, and comparison shopping. We gather data from the best available sources, including vendor and retailer listings as well as other relevant and independent reviews sites. And we pore over customer reviews to find out what matters to real people who already own and use the products and services we’re assessing.

When you click through from our site to a retailer and buy a product or service, we may earn affiliate commissions. This helps support our work, but does not affect what we cover or how, and it does not affect the price you pay. Neither ZDNet nor the author are compensated for these independent reviews. Indeed, we follow strict guidelines that ensure our editorial content is never influenced by advertisers.

ZDNet's editorial team writes on behalf of you, our reader. Our goal is to deliver the most accurate information and the most knowledgeable advice possible in order to help you make smarter buying decisions on tech gear and a wide array of products and services. Our editors thoroughly review and fact-check every article to ensure that our content meets the highest standards. If we have made an error or published misleading information, we will correct or clarify the article. If you see inaccuracies in our content, please report the mistake via this form.


Hostinger deal: Get a website and SSL security for only $2.99 per month

Save up to 75% on this great deal from Hostinger.
Written by Rebecca Isaacs, Staff Writer on

If you're looking to build your own website, we have seen a few deals crop up this last week. First was the Duda deal for $33/month for up to four websites. But if you need just one, we'd like to recommend another great deal: Hostinger. Right now, for only $2.99/month, you can get a Premium Shared Hosting plan. This amount is down from $12/month.

In addition to unlimited bandwidth and databases for your website, you will have access to a free domain, 100GB of SSD storage, and an email account. So if you're planning on building your brand, you can opt to have this email account be your go-to. 

You'll also get free SSL -- a $12 value -- and Cloudfare-protected nameservers for peace of mind. As a free bonus, the website will back up weekly, so if there are any major errors or glitches as a result of, say, a massive internet outage, you'll be able to recover your website data with ease. 

And, if there are any issues with your website, you'll have access to 24/7/365 technical support to get it back up and running in no time, and you'll have a 99.9% uptime guarantee.

This deal is great for those who want to build a personal website for portfolio reasons. We recommend that if you're going to purchase one, you do it sooner rather than later. The clock is ticking down on their website to get this amazing deal.
