I am looking for a webhost to host my blog. I plan on using wordpress and need a cheap, reliable host to get started. I am hoping to spend no more than $5 per month until it grows past this. This will be for a local group that will use this blog to keep everyone up to date on the group, activities, etc.
I am also using this as a place to help me "get my feet wet" and learn more about website, design, etc.
I would like a built in website builder but is optional.
If you sign up with Dreamhost with a $97 off coupon, you can get a year of hosting with a free domain for about 24 dollars, then after the year, less than 10 dollars a month. Dreamhost has been pretty reliable for me and is very reliable for a simple blog.
Worpress comes pre-installed in many auto-installers. So, that shouldn't be a problem to start.
What kind of site builder do you need? and online? where you can create your site with template and things like that?
Look for a host with Fantastico and you'll be all set with a few clicks. You'd be able to have your blog up in less than 5 mintues. Also make sure your host keeps wordpress or which ever software you choose updated for you or does it automatically as in Fantastico.
