    The best cost effective Web Host

    Hey guys, first time around. I would like to ask you what is the best, or some of the best cost effective and reliable Web Hosts? For now, I will just need space enough to put several sites up, no biggie, just simple sites. But I'd like to have the option to upgrade effortessly for a higher code package support, if needed. It'll probably never be needed but who knows what the road as up ahead for me.

    And so, I think in terms of cost effectiveness with all the stuff I buy, it's like a mindset I have since I was little. There can be exceptions, however, if you think they're worthwile. I also need to buy some to several domains, but I don't know wether I should get them in GoDaddy or have them in a web hosting package (for those web hosts who offer domain registration). This would depend on how many domains would the web host allow me to buy or have, right?

    All help is appreciated, even if it's just to say hi

    I forgot to add that Im in Portugal and Im not sure if I should take any international web host. I don't know how much of a difference would make if I have a page hosted in the US and people in Portugal are trying to access it. Minimal?

    For most purposes, the difference would be negligible (not easily noticed using the senses), though certainly measurable.

    Register your domains using a well known, reputable registrar. Host them with another company, that specialises in web hosting. It's the safe way if you want to minimize the risk of complications (like the host getting hold of your domains).

    There is no best host, only the best host *for you*! Make yourself a list of ~20 hosts that fit your needs "on paper", do your research on them http://www.webhostingtalk.com/search.php, send them presales emails and slowly reduce the list to a couple of hosts that seem to be the better ones. Then take your pick. Sometimes the choice can be so hard to make, that a dice can suddenly become a very useful thing.

    I've found AWH deal on the shared web hosting sub-forum, but it looks too good to be true. Also, apparently, you need to email him to get a custom link for the promotion. I've searched extensively webhosting talk and in 2003 he created headaches in a lot of people.

    I would like to know what do you think about this company and the deal on that sub-forum?

    The best host for me at present is www.getmehosted.com, but it might not suit you. If you just want a small host though, it is ideal (small as in low space and bandwidth )

    That is still owned by the same person, but 3 years can change a lot. I don't recall seeing him until recently after a long break, so don't judge on 3/4 year old reviews now.
    If you don’t like the road you’re walking on, start paving a new one.

    Hello Dan_Grr

    You may want to search about godaddy before to take any decision.

    I've heard some bad things about Godaddy Jedito, but thanks anyway.

    EDIT: But this is very appealing:

    Think Jedito was saying that because you stated Godaddy in your original post.

    Dan_grr,

    To be honest the first package should fit most sites' needs: 100 gigs storage / 1 terabyte of transfer is a tad overboard for that price.

    Exactly just an advise.

    I used HostGator in the past, and got excellent service. I also have a site hosted at Netfirms, and the service there is Ok. I could recommend either one, though HostGator would definitely be my first pick.
