My experience with 3 different hosting companies... 1. GODADDY - I started with them because they are so famous. Their interface is terrible. It's slow and takes a lot longer than it should to work on a site. Plus if you ever buy anything from them you have to go through 11 different screens of them trying to sell you stuff in a sneaky fasion (my cousin accidently got some bullshit business listing when he registered a domain with them because the check out screen was misleading. Paid $100 for this "feature". support staff is friendly and efficient though. Never had a problem from them. 2. HOSTGATOR - My choice. Quick and easy to navigate, great support staff and overall just a pleasant experience. WP and other CMS are easy to install and use instantly. Only problem? Can't register domains with them. If you could this would be an all in one shop for me. 3. NAMECHEAP - People rave about them and they're ok I guess. Better navigation than godaddy and they were offering free whoisguard protection for a while too (1yr). Are they still doing this? Problems? For me their free URL forwarding service SUCKS. On 2 seperate occassions I had to move domains to hostgator because the redirect options werent working (pages wouldnt load when I type the forwarded URL into the address bar). So I basically wouldnt even try to use these guys for hosting if the simple URL forwarding is bunk. anyone feel like me about these 3 guys?
