When I was first thinking about starting a blog / website several years ago, I really had no idea in the variations of web hosting companies out there. When I began seriously looking for a company that could not only handle all my needs, but offer great service, had many helpful options and was EASY to use, I was overwhelmed with what I found.
I consulted friends, reviews online and other bloggers for help, and luckily I was able to find the perfect companies that fit my needs.
Since then, I’ve had the opportunity to work with several website hosting companies, and I’ve gotten a pretty good handle on what works well and what doesn’t. Here are a list of my favorites. Each of these companies offers exceptional support, great discounts, many services for building a website that are super easy for the beginner, and more robust for the more experienced webmaster.
1. GoDaddy – GoDaddy has been around for quite some time and they more than 57 managed domains under their belt. They offer award-winning service, a great assortment of web builder tools, and they’re pricing is some of the best and cheapest around. One of my favorites!!!
2. 1&1 – 1&1 makes the list because it offers very competitive prices and it has some of the most user-friendly web builder tools. The offer great service and many of the best bells and whistles we’ve come to expect in building a great site. One of my favorites for beginner bloggers and site builders especially!!!
3. iPage – iPage was the very first hosting company that I used to obtain a domain name and create a website. I still use them and I’m consistently happy with their level of service and the fact that they are continually adding new tools and features for me to take advantage of! I definitely recommend checking them out!
