    So i've heard great reviews from them but still undecided and I need an opinion which 1 better from u guys.

    I need unlimited domain addon along a free domain with the web hosting. My purpose is for a wordpress review site i'm gonna build. And i hope i get great support for lifetime.

    Oh yes, if you're affiliate with them, drop me a pm with a link and some incentize/paypal cash offer. I'll sign up with the best offer. Only for serious people :)

    Please advise dear BHWer.

    Thanks.

    I use bluehost (2 years), seohosting (hostgator) (6 months) and hostmonster (3 years)

    I am leaving hostgator, have had lots of breakdown last 2 weeks. I was not even able to acces the wp admin panel for any of my blogs.

    Never had any problems with Hostgator and always found their support to be very responsive. Suggestion that I sometimes use when undecided with suppliers and both offer much the same service is to send them an email asking various questions and see what length of time and content of response you get back to get a feel for each company.

    used hostgator before, great customer support

    as long as you abide with their tos you won't get banned but you can always ask the support for some clarifications

    alright, guess Hostgator pretty much owning.

    Tell me your affiliate link and you can get up to $125 commission :)
    Offer me some cash/incentize too.

    Hostgator for sure, but like the other guy said if you decide to do anything shady on it be sure to check the TOS to make sure you're in the clear. I've been hosting with them for years and it's been all good.

    I wonder if it's wise to get a free domain from host. Wouldn't you then have to leave the domain if you want to change hosts?

    I've had 2 problems with Bluehost. Once the hosting server was being DOS'ed and my sites where down for a period of 2 weeks. They would not let me move it to a different server. Second problem i have is that my sites slow down or lag for no reason... their tech support is of no help and blame blog plugins... i even disabled them all and showed them that wasn't the issue.. no help at all...

    Hostgator, no problems yet.

    I've used HostGator for over 3 years. Any problem always easily/quickly solved.

    They're so gold.

    Go with them.

    h0stgator allows adult themed sites while bluehost doesn't and blue h0st cheaper by a dollar and provides you with a free domain too while h0stgator doesn't but.. you are stuck with that domain then that you have with blue h0st they wont elt you change it then unless u pay for the new one.

    I have had the same issues with bluehost and received absolutely no help, explanation or even a hint that they cared. There response was to blame wordpress, even though the 2 sites I was complaining about were static html sites.
