    I have been reviewing the services/reviews of web hosting companies since morning and now tired with it. Can't find a single reliable hosting company.

    Can anyone of you suggest me one for my upcoming website?

    Great needed :-(

      Hi I'm just replying as I need an answer as well.. After much research I found creating a site on weebly and using their hosting services would be the best deal for me..
      But, that too wasn't too good - I need more help looking forward to replies from others..

        Thanks lobbrandon.

        I am very much amateur in web hosting stuff so if I am wrong, please excuse. I don't think weebly provides wordpress adminitrative panel, and I wish to create my site in wordpress becaue of the myriad of pluggins.

          I'm an amateur as well, but from what I learnt you can't add ads to your wordpress site - can you?
          What plan do you need to do so?

            you just need to have your own domain for that (lobobrandon.com)  and some hosting  company to host that domain of yours.

        I think your best bet is to go with hostgator, I have been using them and they are really a very good hosting company, they have a really good reviews, they also have the best customer service out there and their uptime is really good here is a link to get some more info about them.

          Hi lobobrandon..

          I got the baby plan at hostgator           http://www.hostgator.com/shared.shtml

          then I bought a domain name and register it at godaddy.

          you can also buy domains at namecheap.com

    Maybe you would get more responses if you titled your post something like:  Looking for web hosting with Wordpress admin capabilities.

      It certainly helps to have an appropriate thread title.

        I opened this expecting to read about a hubber alone in the house with strange noises coming from downstairs or something!

        Web hosting - scared of it??

        I'm the same as PDH, by the way, Godaddy for the domain, and Hostgator for hosting.

          IzzM, PaulGdman67, rmcrayne, prettydarkhrse and lobobrandon, thanks to all of you. Actually I was too tired after the entire day search, so thought of checking to forums after a nap.

          I got it- Godaddy for the domain, and Hostgator for hosting.

    Hostgator is the way to go for web hosting.  They are both reliable and well-priced while providing quality hosting.  They also have great customer support and always help me out through live-chat when I need it.

    For domain names, many people use GoDaddy for their cheap prices, however I have heard different stories about the trustworthiness and reliability of GoDaddy, so I prefer to stay away from them.  Instead, I use Hover which is less known but is a reliable company.

    I remember when I was researching different web hosts on Google, trying to figure out what company had a balance between reliably and price, and every single site I went to seemed to have a different answer for the best webhost.  Then it became obvious to me, many of those sites were being paid by the web hosts in order for that web host to be mentioned as the best or one of the best.  Many of the people who created those websites were also affiliates for the web host they were promoting which made them earn money every time a visitor bought hosting.

    To get to the point, I found that the best way to research these kinds of things are to look at different forums and see what people are saying.  Because then you can almost be sure that these people are posting the truth and aren't recommending a company because that company pays them.

    Host Gator support spent time with me explaining things, answering questions and I don't even have an account yet.  HG seems to be the favorite hosting service.

    I always go with Bluehost for Wordpress websites -- their customer service is SUPREME. I purchase domains through GoDaddy.
