Site Hosting & Domain Names
Quite frankly, webhosting can be luck of the draw and can depend greatly on the amount of traffic your site generates. Online web hosting reviews tend
to be useless, as many of those sites promote hosts which pay for top rankings or offer the highest commissions to the sites referring them. Additionally,
many hosting companies utilize 'sock-puppets' – fake users – paid to write phoney, positive reviews – similar to 'astroturfing'.
Regardless of any guarantees, no hosting company provides 100% uptime and each has their advantages and disadvantages. With that being said, I personally
have found iPower and GoDaddy to work well.
iPowerWeb.com: Web hosting and domain names with affordable price plans. Free domain name with New Client package.
GoDaddy.com: Web hosting and domain names with affordable price plans. Preferred over iPower for ecommerce sites.
DynamicDrive.com: Excellent selection of original DHTML scripts to enhance your web site.
