    Hey Friends
    I am about to start few blogs among them one with unlimited pages, Right now I am using one Website Builder of Godaddy but they are not allowing me to build Sitemaps and backlinks.
    Can i purchase hosting from Godaddy or Hostgator and install Wordpress on them, I dont want to spend much time on Web designing ,I prefer doing more of content management and research work, I will be grateful for any suggestions from members

    I would highly recommend purchasing hosting from your favorite website and installing wordpress. Google loves wordpress.

    Yeah Wordpress is easy to use even you can learn about Wordpress through youtube videos.

    I highly recommend if you are new to IM.

    Sure you can, in both of these you can install several different software packages just with a few clicks with Fantastico etc. Between GoDaddy and HostGator I would personally recommend the latter. With HostGator, you just login to your cPanel, scroll down to "Software and Services" and select Fantastico, QuickInstall, or something else. Here you can see the variety of available software for automated installation.

    If you are asking a question like this than you must be new. And the best piece of advice I can give a newb web developer is pick one platform and get VERY GOOD WITH IT.
    And when I say "pick a platform" I mean "pick Wordpress".
    There isn't a web development firm on the planet that does not have Wordpress solutions for clients and there are THOUSANDS of BIG companies and tens of thousands of freelance developers who ONLY DO WORDPRESS!
    No other company with a development platform can say that "We have people at large corporate design houses who are so confident in our product that they use ONLY our product"
    You don't have time to waste learning it all and no one can really ever learn it all. - So study up and become a pro with Wordpress and start making money.
    I would say good luck, but f*ck that: Do good work and stick with it and you'll make it. I will be here if you have any other questions. ;)

    Choose:
    Hostgator (between Hostgator and Godaddy )
    WordPress (between any other blogging software)
    Every established hosting company support WordPress. And some of them have "one click" installation. No need PHP knowledge.
    Thousand of excellent FREE themes available to use with WordPress. And you will find almost all the important Premium theme in this forum download section.
    You can customize any theme according your needs , if you have your own hosting (+ Knowledge).

    Best of luck

    Website builder is crap. Think it yourself, have you seen even one website ranking which has been built with a website builder? Probably no (i have never seen one). If you can't make a website yourself, then outsource it to someone and enjoy the benefits.

    At least here at BHW your going to run into (commonly) two types of people. Those who swear by BlueHost and those who swear by Hostgator. The arguments for both companies in this forum are omnipresent so I would say go with either company.
    Personally - I switched to Hostgator 5 years back and have never hosted elswhere. Mostly due to the kind of support. I have literally had hostgator phone support guys on the phone with me troubleshooting and fixing for wordpress problems from inside my wordpress admin. Now of course they are not supposed to do that, but some of the HG support guys are top-notch and go the extra mile at the drop of a feather.

    you can try managed wordpress hosts like wpoven, wpengine, page.ly, synthesis. wpoven comes with a very good site builder that automates the whole process of site creation and lets you create different types of sites like shopping cart, blog, video sites etc. on fly. Even with the basic plan it gives you premium plugins and themes that could make your site look amazing and have edge. it gives also dedicated IP, dedicated VPS, Unlimited sites, no restriction on visitors with its basic plan. wpengine, wpoven, synthesis also lets you migrate your existing wordpress site to their hosting. wpoven does migration for free.

    I use godaddy. It may not be the best but Im with it since the beginning and never had problems. I go by the quote "never change a running system" And yeah you can use wordpress with godaddy :)

    Just go for hostgator, hawkhost and hostvizor. Install WP using a 1-click installer, hire a WP designer if you don't know how to use or create WP themes. Focus on your content and SEO, enjoy the money afterwards :)

    Customer Support at Godaddy says that with the deluxe plan only 300 people max can visit all combined sites (on hosting)at once and 600 ppl for Ultimate plan, if maximum is exceeded then your hosting will crash. Is this figure accurate
    Is it the same with Hostgator and BlueHost

    I would steer clear of go daddy, been with them for 3 years and nothing but trouble, the wordpress platform on go daddy seems to run very slow and the support I received was laughable. My hosting account runs out in 2 months then I will probably be switching to hostgator, they go to the trouble of transferring over all your sites so it saves you a lot of work. I have 50 sites, all on wordpress so would have taken a few hours.
