        My strategy is:

        Buy domains at namecheap, and use Hostgator for hosting.. That's each company's strength point anyway

          That's the same workflow I use too. Get the domain name from NAMEcheap, and hosting from HOSTgator.

              Dear Alex,

              Selecting a provider is a vital step. The key factor is uptime, where many cheap hosting providers keep saying 99.9% uptime, but at times you never get them. I had a bad experience with mochahost which almost goes down for a day every one/two weeks.

              I then moved to bluehost.com and it's over a year now and have not seen my hosting server going down for more than 1 hour (only when there is maintenance going on).

              If you google for "top hosting providers" you will find many cheap providers listing at the top. But what i personally think is it's difficult to find best reliability and customer care at cheapest price. I would recommend you to go for Hostgator or Bluehost.(**Hostgator gives free domain name for a year, $$ to spend on GoogleAdwords and you can get discount coupons for upto 25% off).

              Else, if you know anyone close who has a website, may be you can share the hosting space with him by offering an affordable price.

                @theengde, you are absolutely right. That is what I am avoiding

    I say hostgator. I have been using them for years and have never had any problems what so ever. They have the best customer and tech support. Their interface is also very user friendly. You can set up a wordpress blog with just a few simple clicks.

      I have over 80 sites hosted at HostGator for more than a year... Works fine for me - Great customer support and very reliable...

      When it comes time to register a domain though I always favor Namecheap.

    Never host your domains with the same company who hosts your sites - it's asking for trouble. I register my domains at Namecheap and host with Hostgator.

    Have had no problems with this combination in the last 5+ years.

    Hi Alex,
    Out of those two, Hostgator are very good for 99% of people, They have excellent live chat and service, their downfall in my opinion is that when you start requiring a lot of bandwidth, it's just not there because they cram their servers with lots of customers (although their docs say otherwise).

    I have also spoken with people who have had dos attacks while being hosting on HG and they have had to tell HG about it, this is not so good because even the most basic monitoring should pick up any attacks, let alone ones that last for an hour.

    Best regards

    Yes, that's right. Don't use the same web host for your domain and hosting.

    I have a reseller account with hostgator for many years. Never have any problems with them. Their customer support is great, in my opinion. And lots of WF members here recommend hostgator.

    Use hostgator for hosting (starting at $4.95 is not something you can beat, and if you can't afford that, then you may want to wait a bit till you can. Going with a free host is nothing but trouble as I learned when I started) and namecheap for domain registration. I use the baby croc plan on hostgator myself $10 a month for unlimited sites.

    Hostgator has a really good customer support. The overall service of hostgator is also nice.

    I haven't used namecheap, so I can't say anything about them.

      100% agree with this.

      It also depends on if you're going with a shared server or dedicated one. We've had amazing tech support from hostgator in the past with all of our dedicated servers. highly recommend them.

    HostGator or LiquidWeb are the only 2 hosting providers I personally suggest.

    As for domains, I prefer GoDaddy because they have specials.

    NameCheap for domain names and HostGator for hosting.

    I DON'T recommend 1and1 but I recently bought a couple of domain names with them. The .com domain names are currently being sold at $0.99. (you can't change how many years you want though or at least, I couldn't.)

    If money is an issue for your hosting account, then get the 25% OFF coupon code and just pay for as long as you can (there's a cap of 3-years for shared hosting and 2-years for reseller hosting.

    I have to tell you in advance that if you first sign up for a 1-year account, you CAN'T use any other coupon to get a discounted price afterwards.

    If you're serious about your online business always invest in the longest periods.

    You end up paying more upfront but you'll also save as much as possible on the long run.

    Hope this helps!

      i agree with many here...namecheap for domains and hostgator for hosting.

      namecheap has many great features with a domain including free privacy and cheap or free ssl certificate.

      i've had several problems and headaches and downtime with many different hosts and have never had a problem with hostgator. any time i've needed tech support, they have been extremely friendly and heapful.

    Well Hostgator Good for hosting and namecheap for buying domain, NameCheap Hosting Sux big time.
    Heard lot of bad stories abt Namecheap hosting,

    I own 2 VPS, 1 Dedicated and shared hosting all from Hostgator and satisfied so far.

    I face downtime sometime that's due to heavy traffic on my sites and poor site coding.

    Rest it work like charm always
