Many people are asking about web hosting. Here is my research with
some of the many web hosts that are out there. These are ones that I
have experience with that I can share with you to help you make an
informed decision! Remember, while the cost flashing on their front
page may seem like a good deal, the cheapest web host may not meet
your needs or have the features that will make your site
This is the best major web host that I have used. While I would
recommend some basic understanding of various web terminology, this
site is overall very user friendly and has good technical support.
has a good basic plan that will have everything most
people will need for their web site. One thing that stands apart are
their beautiful and unique web templates that are easy to use and
customize. Not sure if you will have the skills to use the templates?
They have a free demo of their site builder that you can try without
Support is not outsourced, so for users in the US you will not run
into a language barrier when trying to get support. Anyone who has
much experience with tech support will appreciate this! Support is
24/7 and available by phone or live chat over the Internet.
Many other web hosts claim to have features and once you sign up you
realize there is a catch. Two of these are ad credits and web stats,
but for Hostgator
these are a couple of their best features. The
$25 Google ad credit is genuinely free (they do not require additional
sign-ups to qualify) and easy to use. The web stats are incredibly
easy to use and understand (a simple click of a button on the left
hand side of the screen) and will provide hours of fun for those who
are interested in analyzing and applying statistics.
really stands apart from the crowd is in their
business accounts. For only $12.95 (for the three year plan) a month
you get not only all the standard web host features but also a
dedicated IP address, private SSL certification, and even your own
toll free number! These features are usually not even offered with
other web hosts, or cost extra. This means if you find out once you
get started that you need these features (which you will if you are
operating any kind of e-commerce store) you will end up paying more
than you would have if you had just started out with Hostgator
These additional features are more than worth the small upgrade in
Finally, for the earth conscious web creator, you will love that
has 100% green hosting. In addition, they are making the
world a better place through their program to provide free web hosting
to select non-profits.
While it is hard to find anything bad to say about Hostgator
there are a couple areas they could be doing better. First of all,
they offer "unlimited" disk space and bandwidth. Of course, thinking
about this for a minute anyone will realize that it is impossible to
actually offer unlimited disk space and bandwidth -- they have to have
a certain number of servers at their physical location. What they
really mean is that they anticipate to have all the space you will
need. Having dedicated IP addresses for the business accounts
certainly helps them meet this claim better than many of the
Many web hosts offer a free domain with sign-up for web hosting
does not offer this for a new domain (although
does offer free domain transfer). Despite this, their service is a
great deal. Really, domains are not that expensive.

business for a reasonable price and looking for lots of great
