Psst! This page contains affiliate links, which means that I may earn a small commission, at no cost to you, if you make a purchase through a link. By doing so, you’re helping me pay my biz bills (and to drink coffee; lots of coffee, & to keep buying design books and art supplies, which I love). Learn more in my Affiliate Disclosure.

Scroll down to choose a hosting plan.

Rocket.net monthly and yearly plans

There are many hosting plans available on Rocket.net, and they are all available to pay monthly or yearly.

The difference is that if you pay monthly, you get the first month for $1. And if you pay yearly, you can get two months for free.

If you want to try the platform, make use of Rocket.net’s offer of $1 for the first month, and their free migration service, and decide which plan you want later.

You can get managed hosting, agency hosting, or enterprise hosting. If you have a small business, then their managed hosting plans may be the most suitable for you.

After you select a hosting plan, you’ll be able to purchase two or three years of hosting with more free months (you’ll see this offer after creating your account, so start by choosing a hosting plan).

You’ll also be able to see more pricing plans, and if you’d like to, you’ll have the possibility to change to another hosting plan before purchasing.

(Disclaimer: Rocket.net may change their offers from time to time, so take a look at their prices before purchasing.)

Important

There’s no offer of a free domain for the first year or a free email service.

If this is a deal-breaker for you, then you can consider creating a hosting account on SiteGround instead.

While Lyrical Host doesn’t include a free domain for the first year, they offer email accounts and up to two years hosting plans (they even have a six month hosting plan, which I haven’t seen anywhere else). You can use my coupon code SOULFULGIRLS10 to get 10% off any WordPress hosting plan.

Another option that you have is to purchase a domain name on Namecheap, where there are always promotions available. They also offer email services.

Personally, I use:

  • SiteGround for hosting my website.
  • Namecheap to manage my domain name (they offer free domain privacy; on SiteGround you have to pay separately for this).
  • Google Workspace for my business email (even though I could have a free email from SiteGround).

I prefer to keep all these services separately, but that’s just my opinion. So choose what you think is better for your business.

If you don’t mind managing your domain name and your business email on another platform, select the hosting plan that best suits your needs on Rocket.net, and click on “Get started”.
