      I have not used Bluehost but I have done a lot of reading and looking around for good hosts and my impression is that they are OK.

      I use and recommend HostMonster first with a few others I have some experience with such as kiosk and Liquid web.

      Main thing is to be clear about your criteria.

      Make a list of what you want from a host then evaluate your list of hosts against that list.

      I am not a "techie" so I insist on 24 hour telephone technical support. That is my main criterion - no whizz bang stuff about xenon servers or whatever concerns me.

      Second I must have Cpanel, not plesk, vdeck or whatever.

      third - everything else (!) like do they have a good affiliate program etc.

      Notice price is not in my list! It has to be what I accept is affordable - that's all

      Yeah go through this one carefully - loads of people rush through this decision and it's important to have a host you are comfortable with.

      BTW there are loads of fairly meaningless claims about 100% uptime and 99.9% uptime around. When you do the math you realise these are not worth a damn. Do your "Due diligence" and go with one you feel comfortable with.

      All The Best

    I've got more than one account at BlueHost. What I like about them is I can call them and they're very willing to help me out. (I'm a writer, not a tech guy.)

    Hostgator is very good. I often use 1&1 to register domains, but they do not have cpanel.

    SLHost has good support.

    Hi all

    I use two different hosting companies.

    NoMonthlyFees.com is good for smaller sites, has cpanel and a number of features.

    A little more expensive (but still very fair) is LunarPages. These guys kick butt. Unlimited Storage and Unlimited Bandwidth.

    Both sites have Fantastico and cpanel access. If you write PHP and MySQL, they both support that also.

      I use Hostgator and am totally happy with their service. They have always been extremely helpful, whether it's 3:00 in the afternoon or 1:30 in the morning, through the live chat or via telephone, they've always gone above and beyond in trying to help me whenever I've had a question or a problem.

      I was with 1&1 prior to joining Hostgator, but they did not have cpanel (a must) and their customer service was poor.

      Hope that helps.

    I currently have hosting from Leet Host. My budget was tight and figured I would use their service for awhile. Now it seems they are just as good as HostGator but cheaper.

    As a new member let me say.. Thanks for having me and Hello to All,

    I'm very new at internet marketing but I do know you must take your time

    and review various web hosts throughly for the services you are

    searching for. They vary tremendously, and 24/7 reliable technical support

    is a MUST. Blue Host and Host Gator both have great reviewes.

    It's yard care time again, visit my blog for some of the best string trimmers.

    How can anyone endure a web host that do not offer cPanel, Fantastico, MySQL and PHP nowadays? I wish those bigger companies without these features (unavailable even if customer specifically request for them) would go out of business soon! Below are all excellent hosts I have personal experience with, with all the above features included (which is compulsory to have IMHO):

    1) Hostgator - My first choice but slightly expensive
    2) GoDaddy - Affordable (read cheap if compared with hostgator) and reliable but stingy on the MySQL front, they limit the number of databases you could use
    3) AddictiveHosting - one of the smaller US hosting company, been in business for about a year, in my 7 months with them not more than a day downtime at any one time, price comparable with GoDaddy.
    4) ExaBytes - a Malaysian web host company that has since expanded its business to US, fast and resourceful support but I recommend insisting on US server which is much faster

    Hope you find one suitable and affordable for you

  • I`m actually quite enjoying NameCheap`s hosting service. Affordable, scalable, reliable (no downtime YET), and good customer service. Very nice.

    Seems many people are recommending HostGator. I tend to agree, I have been a customer of theirs for years and they provide competent service.

    One thing: most every host offers "unlimited" features nowadays. This is really a bit unrealistic, and in practise no host can live up to that. What it boils down to is that if you use too much server resources you WILL get shut down.
    No host can allow one customer to compromise the performance of a whole server.

    Love Hostgator, and their support is excellent. Been using them for a dedicated server, shared hosting accounts, and a reseller account for years.

    They have a new service at seohosting.com that I recently signed on with. Great for IM. Essentially, Hostgator, but which as many unique IP addresses as you want.

    I started with streamline.net because they were cheap but I could not install blog as they did not have cpanel and you have to upgrade to .net 2.0 to be able to do that.

    I used godaddy for my next account and they were a lot better with their additional features and ease of use.

    Finally after being referred by so many gurus that I should be using hostgator for my hosting I got my latest site with hostgator and they are really excellent and come with loads of features.

    I do recommend using hostgator.

    As for bluehost and others as I have not used those services I cannot give any suggestions.

    Kind regards

    Any advise on where to lead a absolute newbie that has no tech skills but wants to learn

    to market their business. Who's the best on teaching their customers how to learn to use

    their service with simplicity?

    Another pitch for Hostgator. I am hosting a large number of sites. I want them on different hosts. I have been trying out hosts other than Hostgator and I have to say, HG reigns supreme. 24 hour support, instant access to your account after you pay, the best support forum around... They've really spoiled me for the others.

    I would be a bit careful about Bluehost. Check Webhostingtalk for reviews.

    A hosting provider I would recommend is ixhosting or webhostingpad. Those are the two that I did my research on the service they provide are great. A remarkable hosting service that delivers quality for their outstanding reputation. I use webhostingpad, although ixhosting is great. I hope this helps for choosing your hosting package.
