    I am totally new to IM and don't have any web sites yet. My plan is in upcoming months to launch few wordpress sites and see where I go from there. I would like something cheap and reliable. I am looking at namecheap or hostgator are those good choices?
    This is my first post here so YEIY!

    Go for namecheap for domain and hostwinds, hosterbox or hostvizor for hosting since they offer monthly fees like $2 or so. You can also search for coupon codes before paying to get some discounts. Welcome to BHW!

    I use hostgator simply because I love the live chat support and the speed seems decent.

    I'm with hostgator, and it's pretty good. I tried godaddy before but they simply sucks.

    I use hostgator, and their customer service (especially with someone who is not technically adept) is top of the line.

    Yeah, hostgator is really good one. The only problem is their 404 page - just try it and see what i am saying here. They promote their service on your site, LOL (not good at all!)

    Code:
