If you have a free blog through blogger or wordpress you may be thinking about getting your own domain name and hosting. If you do the research there are many different lists of the top 10 webhosts out there and none of them seem to match. It can get overwhelming when you have never had hosting before to pick which one to go with.
I am not going to rank the best webhosts; it seems pointless to just create another list out there. I am going to speak from personal experience. When I first thought of getting hosting, I decided the best way to choose was of course on price, but more importantly, on other people that I knew who used a certain host.
Knowing what host other bloggers with good blogs were using and means a lot to me. Why? Well, first it meant that I could create a similar site; with the thought if they can do it I could too. Secondly, I knew I could probably email someone if I needed help.
I learned how to make money online from one main source and the author of that source that I trusted used Bluehost. With that in mind I decided to try Bluehost. I trusted that if I ran into trouble the author may help me. To my great surprise, I have not needed to ask her.
Bluehost has tremendous customer service and a speedy, accurate tech department. Any issue I have ever had has been resolved in less then 24 hours. Customer service is very important to me and should be for anyone considering hosting. Due to their great support I have stayed with them.
I have other mentors I trust and many of them recommend hostgator. I can not speak for hostgator, because I have not tried them. However, some of the bloggers I trust do recommend them. Below is a list of benefits of both Bluehost and Hostgator:
