I have seen many hosting companies offer Monthly or Yearly pricing for web hosting. Do you prefer paying monthly or yearly for hosting? Yearly saves you a lot of money because the Host usually lowers the price, lets say you pay monthly for 12 months, you'd pay much more than paying once for a year. My current host, HostGator, offers to save you $150+ for paying for 3 years instead of monthly for 3 years. I am currently paying monthly because I earn money each month, it's easy to focus on the monthly payments because I can cancel anytime and with the money I spend at one time for yearly hosting, I can use it on other things.
