I want to build my own website and have my own .com listing. Does anyone use & recommend a certain web hosting company.
I'm willing to pay $5-$10/month, I don't want ads blogging it down, but I want to have capability of posting lots of pictures.
I would like to get it setup fairly quickly, so if it has a good tool/wizard to build my pages, that would be great.
i use surpasshosting.com i paid $61.00 for the year
Freewebs.com has one. Their free address has adds and uses their address freewebs.com/(your name). You can also purchase a site from them and have your own .com site. Best I remember the price wasn't bad at all.
I also have a freewebs site. right now i just have a free one, but the ads really arent bad. Usually it is just at the top of the screen. I have been really satisfied with it (since it is free)! EAsy to use.
I used Homestead.com and pay $4.99 per month for 5 pages (I believe you can upgrade to $9.99 per month for 10 pages). You can download an additional program for free that will help design. I've never done it before and it was easy for me. I had my website up and running before my business because I was just so excited!
I have used webhostingbuzz.com for years and I love them. Like $5 a month and the way I have my site set up its hundreds of individual pages... so I know theres no limit there! I'm sure there is some sort of limit on bandwidth but with hundreds of photos online I have never reached it.
I second godaddy. They are great and really helpful. It is $10/month. But they have some kind of deal where if you pay for the year, it's less then $10/month. I think you just have to call and ask. They have a good search for .com's so you know what names are taken already.
