    Hostgator is the only ever host I have used and I have only ever made really small websites that went no where at all. I had good experience with them which makes me want to use them again, does anyone else think Hostgator is the best for newbies like me? :)

    I've been with HG for many years and in my opinion they are one of the best. They are not perfect but whenever I've had problems they corrected them right away.

    HG is newbie friendly and for advanced users as well. But I think they're a good place to start. They provide help and video files for just about any task you want to perform. And if you can't find it just log into the live chat, they are always helpful.

    Yeah with hostgator they were very friendly for me as well, when I cancelled my package but it didn't go through properly and I had an outstanding of about £60, they cleared it from my account for me, I defiantly think I will go back to them when I need hosting again :).

    Thanks for all the informative comments everyone.

    I think hostgator is the best host for newbies because of their awesome 24/7 chat support. I made use of that function frequently when I first started out.

    Speaking of which I see you posting quite a lot and all of your posts contain nice information, how long you been into Internet Marketing for?

    You should make a Q&A help thread in one of the sections to help newbies starting out with any questions they may have ^.^

    I guess you could say all answers can be found by using the search button but you know what people are like? lol

    HG rocks, never had a problem with them - always check for promo codes if you are a new customer.

    Hostgator gets a lot of shit and I have no idea why...they are great. Reliable, fantastic support, and cheap as hell. A++++++ as they would say on eBay

    No I think hostgator kinda sucks just like ipage


    I use bluehost and hostmonster (same company)
    and when I have to move websites around.. gator works but its a bit cumbersome with the way you have to do things.
    You have to use cuteftp or filezilla hostgator just like ipage for some reason my SEF urls dont always want to work every time (unlike godaddy that they never will work)
    And you always have some permissions thing with them..

    off personal experience bluehost or hostmonster seems a little more reliable as far as things always working. without any real hassle of making things work.. but thats just me
