I was hoping I could get some help with picking a webhost .. it seems like there's so many options out there. Just a few recommendations would be nice.
I'm a graphic design student and I need a place for my portfolio, which will take up a considerable amount of space. I also need a place for my personal website & journal, so I will need subdomains. There's a list of my requirements below, and I'm trying to find a good price. I realize that sometimes cheaper isn't always better, but I'm somewhat of a bargain shopper.
20-30 GB of BW
Up to 5 subdomains & email
(I prefer CPanel)
If you are considering having multiple domains I would suggest going with Dathorn's Internet Services and getting their $13/month plan. I've been with them for almost two years now and have less problems with them than any other host I've tried.
Hi girlintheworld, welcome to WHT!
Your needs are rather modest, and there sholuld be no problem finding a host meeting them. But you should be careful to avoid the bad apples - there are plenty of those in this over-saturated market where hosts try to cut costs by outsourcing support to India etc....
I always advice people to look around themselves for hosts with good customer reputation, you can even search here on WHT as a start. I don't think you need to spend more than $7-10 per month.
