    You can get $5 off if you use my referral # down in my siggy ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓ ↓. I get $5 off too.

    You may have noticed by now: there are many well thought of web hosting sites.

    Your best bet is to:
    • visit many of them
    • note what they offer (or don't offer)
    • compare based on your notes
    • and then make your own decision on what seems will work best for you.

    Keith, If this is not true, I do not know what is.

    I started looking at blog host sites and setup, and I realize it may take me a month or more to decide. I hate getting burnt by this kind of stuff. The choices are almost overwhelming.

    Like you said, search, search, take notes, search some more and then get more confused.:confused: :mrgreen:



    I have started here
    Web Hosting Rating - Best Website Hosting Providers 2010

    and here
    Best Blog Hosting - Who's best for weblog hosting? Find top rated web host for blogs




    I will keep you guys informed as to what/how I decide.

    I am curious, how did you decide on the ones you chose to go with???

    I have used :: Below $10 Hosting :: in the past and highly recommend them. There was zero downtime when I used them (about a year and a half from 2006-2007) and when I called to cancel my account (a friend of mine gave me dedicated server space) there were no questions asked.

    Unless your site is huge with massive amounts of traffic, all you'd need is the cheapest plan at $5/mo.
