    Hello people! In the past 2months my blog has really grown. I have around 100 -150 visitors everyday.
    All this time my blog was hosted on blogger for free, but now I want to take full control of it. I have earned around 65$ at this time through ads. That's all I have to spend for a new host.

    So please help me out! Which hosting service should I choose? Should I go with Bluehost or Hostgator because they are really popular, but not sure if worth the money.
    Has anyone tried out Hostoople or Siteground? Are they good?
    Or are there any other WP hosts that are not very popular but great with their service? My total budget is not more that $65 for yearly hosting! Please Help!

    How are you going to move your site from Blogger?

    we import the posts and comments and redirect the site right?
    I found few guides online explaining the process in detail.

    if you go with any of the popular hosts, setup a second email on your paypal account, signup for their affiliate program with one email and your hosting account with a seperate email, that way you get $50-75 cashback. or just find any decent rated cpanel host here, or over at webhostingtalk. you can get for a lot cheaper than bluehost/hostgator

    Hey! thanks for helping me out.
    I always did think about doing that but are you sure that they wont come to know that I myself have used the affiliate link ?
    Could you elaborate a bit on the complete process?

    Yes but the chances of keeping your rankings are nil.

    Personally I use hostgator and 1and1 although some people have problem with those providers I have had good experience with them both.
    Also have a dedicated server for larger sites.
    So one of those options will suit you, or hostwinds - Ive heard lots of good things about that company also.

    However, as said above, moving from blogger and keeping your rankings is going to be difficult.

    Sorry I read it wrong, if you are redirecting the site then you should keep your rankings, I thought you was simply copying the site and putting it on a host.

    Hostwinds is my on the top of my go-to's list. Top notch support (24/7 online) and nice servers. Try them!

    If I was you personally I would keep the Blogger blog so that you are guaranteed to keep the same rankings, and use earnings from this blog to make a new hosted blog. Have you heard of the saying "Don't fix it unless it is broken"?

    I agree with mickyfu, if it ain't broke don't fix it (by moving it). You could always build a similar site, now that you have that recipe for success.
    If you move it and lose whats working... How are you going to feel?

    I started using digital ocean a few days back and it looks awesome.. Be warned that you need technical knowledge to set it up but it rocks..
