Hi Guys, 

 

Would like to get some advise or review from the expert there. 

 

I am looking at a2 / godaddy and bluehost. 

 

 

I am from asia, so I heard of GoDaddy before but not A2 or BlueHost.

It really depends on what you are hosting, how much storage you need, your expected traffic. If you are just starting out, I would strongly recommend HostGator as your web hosting server.

I would also recommend for Hostgator if your visitors are from Asia only even if its from overseas no issue. I have been using it since 4 years and it work really great for me. There is no problem with Godaddy as well but Hostgator is really simple to handle and the most important thing is its server never goes offline. You can trust.

I don't know whether this will work where you're located, but I'm going to toss it out in case it might.

 

As far as actual hosting goes, it's worth considering Amazon Web Services, specifically the S3 service, free tier.  I've used it to host two different websites, both relatively low traffic, and it has never cost me a penny and reliability is excellent.  It's a bit more complicated to set up, particularly initially (but has gotten much easier than when I did it), but once you've got the hang of it it's quite easy.  I also use it for media hosting of my personal stuff that I use on web forums, too.

 

I keep my domain name registered with Namecheap.com, which lives up to its name and has had good customer service when I've needed them.

Agreed, and look at these Web Hosting Directories: http://www.free-webhosts.com/ and http://www.webhostingbest10.com/free-web-hosting

Why not just host it yourself? It's not that hard to do and you save on the hosting fees.

I've heard some good things about BlueHost. Personally, I like Namecheap and their packages. It provides an affordable domain, hosting, and SSL. :)

Most main stream big hosts don't have top notch service.  Usually their support sucks and they over crowd their servers to squeeze more profits. 

 

Smaller hosts have better features, speed and most of all quick and helpful support. 

 

Web Hosting Talk is a web hosting forum. You will find many deals from smaller hosts there. 

 

Hawk Host and Veerotech are my recommendations.

I use 1and1.

 

Just don't ask me for the tech support number because I don't know if one exists.

 

I never have any need to call it... :-)

Well, I can't recommend you a good web hosting because that's not a universal decision. I spent so much time to find the perfect hosting! I tried BlueHost but I didn't even notice any of the advantages that are so brightly described on their website... I applied to the professional reviews on the Hosting Services Lab and familiarized with very attractive offers. I found affordable web hosting plan that was checked by real professionals. I purchased it and didn't regret. So, I would recommend you checking out the professional reviews first..:)

I have hosted my website on SiteGround. It is a wonderful web hosting service! Very comfortable website management, great and affordable pricing and the best thing is the support! The people that support you make you feel like you are part of a big family, The SiteGround Family! Those people can spend hours to assist you with your issues and will do anything to have your problems solved. A day after I joined their service, I received a call from SiteGround welcoming me into the service and checking if I need any help! Recommended for anyone out there that want a website!

 

Tech support is top-notch. Though you can purchase some extra features like SSL, a basic account give you so TEN times more the other guys for half the price and they don’t nickel and dime you to death. Awesome script support and installation. They have a big selection of popular scripts like Joomla, sugar CRM and you can install others.

SiteGround has competitive rates (although BlueHost has rates beginning at $3.45, which is 50 cents cheaper) and is used by many.

 

They offer quite a bit for their basic package.
