    If you are looking for a domain name, godaddy or namecheap.

    If you are looking for hosting, hostgator does the trick.

    I chose HostGator because of all the comments I saw about it on this very forum. I could not be happier with that decision, the pricing and the support are top notch IMO.

    HostGator.

    For domains -- 1&1 (Domain Names & Web Hosting : 1&1 Internet Inc. - not an affiliate link). They offer free private registration (not sure if Go Daddy still charges extra for that). I have close to 70 domains with 1&1 and they've been amazing.

    I agree with others about Hostgator. I've been using Hostgator and have nothing but good things to say about them. Any time I have needed help, I have contacted them through e-mail and usually received a response within 20 minutes.

    I use HostMonster and HostGator...both of these are top notch. You can actually call HostMonster and get answers to your questions. You can do this with HostGator but there is usually a long wait so the best way to contact them is their live internet support which is the best in the business. Either way you can't go wrong!

    I been with 1and1 for 5 years and they hosted multiple websites for me that I made money with.
    They do have annoying glitches and things I am disagree with, but I wouldn’t rate them at zero.
    They are ok – but there are better choices around.

      I would rate them at ZERO. Just Google 1&1 scam and find out how many unhappy customers they have and how they make it nearly impossible to drop a domain that you registered with them and then send the account to credit collectors when you don't pay for a domain that you did not want to renew.

        I've never had problems dropping a 1&1 domain, but their cancellation system is a bit tricky to navigate if someone can't find it to begin with.

        http://cancel.1and1.com

        I remember having to ask customer service how to cancel a domain and it took a bit of time before I figured this out. Maybe they set it up as a separate system deliberately to make it tougher to cancel domains. Who knows?

        But now I just drop domains whenever I don't need them, and there has never been an issue with billing. In fact I've been late paying my bills but they continue to register domains for me anyway.

        I've registered all of my domains with 1&1 and haven't had any issues with them for years.

    I use host gator since for $25 a month you can have re-seller rights and get unlimited hosting for along as you have your re-seller account.

      Hi Jonathan,


      How did you get unlimited hosting? Are you referring to unlimited disk space and bandwidth, or unlimited domains...?

      I have a $25 reseller account but my disk space and bandwidth are definitely not unlimited... Was this something they offered before that they no longer offer?

    You should pick a hosting provider based on the content that you're going to provide and where you think most of your demographic is located.

    Hostgator and Bluehost offer pretty solid hosting experiences and if you want something more Wordpress focused, you can take a look at WPengine or Flywheel.

    I recently moved my website from Hostgator to WebHostFace. Hostgator, along with several other hosts, has been taken over by a company called EIG. The support at Hostgator is no longer good.

    My new host, WebHostFace, is amazing! 24/7/365 support via chat and email. Their chat people are not just sales people. They are very knowledgeable and have even done things FOR me rather than making me do them myself - which is good since I'm a non-techie. You can call them on the phone too! And they also respond via Facebook and Twitter. And they respond FAST!

    Look up EIG and the list of companies they own. You'll want to avoid those. If you don't believe me, look up all the complaints people are having against those companies - like Arvixe.

    A great place to go to find a good host that meets your needs is the webhostingtalk.com forum. Those guys know their stuff and they'll help you. It was through one of them that I found WebHostFace - kind of a funny name but honest, they're really awesome!

      Good insight there Imamarketer2. This thread was started back in 2010 (5 years ago, how time flies) and the web hosting industry certainly has changed since then! People on the WF looking for hosting advice definitely should research and/or post on the http://www.webhostingtalk.com forums.

    I have sites on Greekgeeks, Arvixe and Vendor-lock. They are all similar in performance and price. The only CS I've used is Arvixe and it was good.

    These days it's tough to find hosting not owned by EIG. This is important to some and I comepletely understand why. Arvixe is, Greengeeks is not and they swear they will never sell out.

    Just avoid Hostgator. Like you owe them money. Seriously, this is the worst hosting company currently in existence.

    There are tons of others for shared hosting that are cheap and won't pull silly little shenanigans like forgetting to auto-bill your account. Hawkhost is good, Squidix is good, Siteground is good but overpriced (methinks), and there are a bunch of little hosts that are good (and thankfully NOT owned by EIG).

    Hi Sportfan54,

    There are a lot of solutions out there, it really depends what you need.
    If you're doing video marketing you want unlimited disc space and bandwidth.
    If you use a lot of php scripts make sure they offer the latest version of PHP.
    Also, if you do email marketing with an autoresponder you should consider
    their mail sending limitations.

    I hope that helps.
    Have a great day toward your online success !

    Yours truly,

    Like all the owners of website, internet marketers have also very basic requirements while choosing for web hosting. Primary criteria would be - website should be live 24X7, it should load fast (this is one of the important aspect which is taken into account while google ranking as well) and good support.

    Being an internet marketer I will look for these criteria first. After that I may chose different plans according to my specific requirements. I am quite sure most of the internet marketers will agree on this.
