    Hello,

    I decided to take the big step and get a web hosting. but as I am a beginner in this field, I need experienced people advice.

    I plan to create a lot of blogs (automatics and semi-automatics), some only with articles, other only with images and / or videos. So I need space. I will also use (but not only) porn stuff (so my web hosting must be porn friendly).

    Finally, I already had a web host, but my knowledge is limited. This requires that the web hosting must be beginner friendly

    I have read the various threads, it appears that:
    - Hostgator is dead
    - Servinio or hostwinds May Be interesting.

    Do you see a web hosting which suits my needs?

    Thanks.


    P.S. : I forgot to say: price isn't really a problem: I can pay for quality, but ONLY for quality.

    Go for linode VPS. Shared hosting is not so good.

    Sorry, I did an error: I just wanted to tell that Hostgator has bad, very bad reviews in this forum (bad support, for example), so it's dead for me. But I know it had a good reputation before.

    Do you use Hostgator?

    Thanks, but I know nothing about VPS. I prefer using something I know (a little). And why shared hosting isn't good?

    Have you tried greencloudvps? They have a BST here, but I think only VPS and Dedicated servers, not hosting providers.

    You can look for either shared or VPS hosting, but the selection between the two is depends on your needs and your understanding. Since you are beginner, I suggest you to go for shared hosting first. And always go for the hosting provider who assure your 24X7 customer support with nearly 100% uptime. And it would be great if that gives you different ways to communication the support ( like live chat, Phone support, ticketing support).

    Please note that if you are going to keep the "porn stuff" in your server, make sure it is not against the DMCA. And if it is illegal, then offshore hosting would be a good option for you.

    Have a look at hosting services from ifastnet.com and greenlionnet.com.
    Servers have no downtime and their prices are low.
    Support is helpful around the clock.
