    What’s the simplest web hosting service?

    Is there a web hosting service to build your website that is as easy to use as HubPages and Blogger?

    I'm looking for the same thing. I have been looking at Hostgator, but I am not sure how user friendly it is. It seems to be one of the more affordable ones, but since I am just starting up my first site I am uncertain of what all is available.

    It depends largely on your marketing plans, but a good lesson I have learned is to use a service that have tools to make marketing easier, such as word press, you also get the ability to do blog or static site set-up with wordpress. check out http://mojodawg.com
    The thing you are probably most concerned about is the control panel stuff and when using word press, your done with it after you load word press on your domain. Almost all hosts offer the traditional website builder...even mine does..but they are limited and the real point is for them to sell you tons of marketing ad-ons on the backside
    * needed tools
    a host that has everything so you dont have to move stuff
    a host that has high customer service ratings
    high uptime guarantee
    excelent tools such as:
    affordable domain registry,integrated wordpress,dedicated ip,virtual servers,unlimited domains and transfers, My SQL databases,domain names,unlimited bandwidth. One big name host (i wont name does'nt own their own domain registry)
    getting your own host is the right plan if you want ultimate control of your marketing and products. The free platforms are good but they rule.
    Finally any good name host that offers you these abilities within you budget is good.
    Good Fortunes in Your Marketing

    I think you might be looking for a content management system (CMS) like Wordpress and many hosting companies offer such a service.  I used a self-hosted Blogger for years and switched to Wordpress some time ago.

    As far as an actual hosting company, I love dreamhost.com and have used them for years. 

    Dreamhosts good points:

    Have a free 2 week trial.
    Inexpensive hosting : unlimited Storage, unlimited Bandwidth for $8.95/month.
    Offer plenty of services to let you grow like virtual private servers and dedicated servers.
    Have great customer support
    Is employee owned.
    Is carbon neutral.

    They offer a "One-Click Installs" for Wordpress and many other server options, so you aren't locked into a CMS if you change your mind later.

    Other One-Click Installs are:

    concrete5 (cms)
    MediaWiki
    ComicCMS
    dotProject
    ecoder
    Gallery
    GetSimple CMS
    Joomla! (another major CMS)
    MICO - Mantis
    MODx Evolution
    Moodle (CMS)
    Omeka
    Open Web Analytics
    OpenVBX
    OpenX Community
    phpBB
    PhpGedView
    Piwigo
    Piwik
    Pligg (CMS)
    Splash Frog
    Textpattern CMS
    Trac
    WebCalendar
    XODA
    Zencart

    I would say HostGator because it works best with WordPress. There are tutorials that show you how to get around and WordPress on the other hand is really simple to use.
