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
well there are a lot of web hosting services, check out the site below it should answer a lot of questions about hosting, see the reviews and pick the one that has the best reviews that you think it will fit your needs.
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:
Joomla! (another major CMS)
MICO - Mantis
Open Web Analytics
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.

What should you look for when selecting a host for your website?

I want to start my own blog/website, maybe a few. Been checking the different hosts, reading reviews, seeing what they offer, paying attention to the ones Hubbers use; and I'm not certain which is the best. Hostgator seems good in terms of price and what is offered, can use multiple domains....
