Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet

Which website hosting should I choose for my first website?

Three years ago I decided that I wanted to make a website as a hobby. I never thought that I would be getting rid of all my real life businesses that support my family in exchange for a the "making money online" idea. I didn't really think that you could even make money with websites.

When it came to choosing website hosting for my first website, I had no idea. Usually people go for the free website hosting, however I did not see this as a path to a decent website. My first website was a mess and I continually wasted time on making it look nice, when I should have been filling it with content. My first choice of website hosting turned out to be a mistake, and maybe I had a few more after that.

Now that I have ten or more websites and have tried at least 5 different website hosting companies, I have come to a clear conclusion. I now use Hostgator in conjunction with Wordpress and this is for a few simple reasons.

Hostgator website hosting has been the number one website hosting company for the last year and half. I still have other websites hosted on different website hosting companies, however Hostgator has proved to be the best for me.


  1. Hostgator website hosting is cheap and always gives me a discount on big purchases.
  2. You can make unlimited websites on the one hosting account and therefore only have to purchase a hosting account once.
  3. You can upload a website in a few minutes.
  4. You can use the cpanel with fantastico to upload a website template.
  5. Hostgator supports Wordpress which is the easier content management system on earth.
  6. Hostgator automatically backs up your data.
  7. The list goes on...
Some people have problems with certain website hosting, however a lot of the problems come down to the user making mistakes with their own website. This is why I recommend Hostgator in conjunction with Wordpress. Hostgator has a control panel (cpanel) where you can go an instantly install a Wordpress website to your hosting account and have it running within 5 minutes.

I wish I had chosen the right web hosting plan for my first website. I could have saved alot of money and time.
