    Hey everyone! I've found 2 great niche's;

    One has around 3500 monthly searches, Exact match domain in .net and is "medium competition" with only 1 site in the top ten being optimized for it despite not having a domain name anywhere relevant.

    Another one has around 2000 Monthly searches, EMD.org and is low competition with no sites optimizing to it, and is a very profitable product that people will buy.

    I need your help deciding which hosting to take for my site, I've decided to go with wordpress theme and around 40-50 pages of content. I do not have much capital left, only around 50$ after investing in Scrapebox and activating my Payoneer card and paying it's monthly fee's.

    Godaddy currently has an offer for 2$ domains and 12$/year hosting in their most basic plan; but i've seen many negative reviews and also that they do not have a cpanel and might be difficult to customize or install my wp themes. Is anyone using their services and not having problems?

    Everyone recommends hostgator and I appreciate their services but I cant pay up that much for now, unless someone's got offers for it.

    Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

    I signed up on hostgator because they allow a lot of stuff godaddy won't allow (porn!). But within the first three days I started hating hostgator already. Why? Their customer support sucks. You always have to wait for 30-40 minutes in a chat queue and then sometimes the representatives are kinda slow. Just my opinion, might be different for others ...

    Everything else is standard so far - as for features and speed they don't differ much, I would think

    For a wordpress site you'll get cheap shared hosting at bluehost. WP won't require any real customer support.

    I would buy the domain at internetbs myself.

    Thanks for the replies,

    I'm really not sure but I want to give godaddy a try since it's just 12$'s for 1 year + a free domain name and it seems good comparatively, maybe if I get some profits i'll check out the ones you have recommended.

    Try to go to webhostingtalk forum. They offer most 50% coupon discount on first payment for new customers.

    For hosting, I recommend stablehost, hawkhost, or crocweb.

    For a starter site, GoDaddy is fine, but as traffic begins to pick up, you'll notice that load times can get bogged down pretty quickly. If you're looking for something cheap, they're fine to start with but if you're site picks up in traffic, I would suggest Liquid Web as they are tops in customer support and no lag times, etc.

    Since you have limitation, you don't have any other option than to wait. You can go for GoDaddy but after some time you find loading problem over there too.
    So Hostgator is good.

    Whatever you do, don't buy hosting from Godaddy. Probably the worst of them all.

    You're building 50 pages for a 2000/ms keyword? Seems like a lot of work for one keyword. But sounds high quality so you will probably rank it easily :). Good luck.

    if you don't have much capital left, choose a pay monthly host to preserve your cashflow, incase you make a mistake, and have to change your plans.

    There are cheap good hosting that you can consider.
    Most gives you small bandwidth for traffic though
    you can expand your hosting if your traffic soar
    and goes beyond your limit which literally means
    you should start earning money.

    I don't know how you want to monetize it but i
    strongly doubt if you if the income will be worthwhile
    at the end of the day.

    Just a piece of advice, you don't need 40 to 50
    pages of content to rank. What the heck do you
    need such outrageous amount of content for,
    for just 3,500 and 2000+ monthly search.
    Save yourself that myth that you need
    lots of content or lengthy ones to rank on Google.

    1. Cheap
    2. Fast and professional support
    3. No downtime

    Thanks for all your replies.

    I've decided to go with around 10 pages of content at launch, and schedule around another 15. It's an amazon product niche that is I think profitable enough and has the potential to make some good money if I can get it ranked to the top.

    I've looked though most hosts but yeah I just cant find any good names at a cheap price for my current state. Godaddy it is- despite myself not liking it as much, it's the only option left.

    For the offer 12$'s for 1 year + a free domain from godaddy, I think there is a limit for the number of visitors to your site, not sure though. Get it confirmed before you decide. Also if possible try to stay away from godaddy for hosting.

    The limit is 25000/month, I'm sure that's enough since my site's main keyword is for 3500 exact searches.
