    Hostgator? NameCheap? Bluehost?

    I prefer hosts that accepts paypal even if it is not veriefied with a Credit card.

    Fellow BHW pipz, what can you recommend from your experience?
    And when I transfer, should I also transfer my domain or hosting only?

    Also, how will I know if my IP is not shared? I believe it is c class IP right?


    Searched Google but the tutorials are waaaay outdated.

    Thanks!

    I use hostgator and run a deedicated server. I am switching to hosting my own server as hostgator is not that amazing.

    No mate, I am just starting on my online business so I only have one site, just checked and the price for a ********* server is 100 bucks+ a month. That will kill me. So Hostgator is not good?

    Non of them, NameCheap they are crap they take the domain if you don't contact them fast, Bluehost crap, Hostgator didn't use it but people say that it works almost decently.

    Aren't they sensitive with link building? I don't mean xrumering to 500k of links. I was thinking like 500 links a day. Will they suspend my account for this?

    Hostgator rocks. Any problems always fixed - but I've never done much deep black hat on any accounts. I used to host my own server but now don't want to bother with applying patches, updates, blah blah blah

    I would recommend Hostgator. It's not blazing fast, but it's reliable and I haven't got any issues so far with them. The baby plan allows you to host a lot of small niche websites. HostGator does accept PayPal as well.

    But what will any of these hosts do when there's a complaint about links from SB, xrumer, etc? :confused:

    Yes, same question as reallife, I do not plan on hosting 100's of blog farms on my host, I just want to get a host for a single site, BUT I do use xrumer, sb and linkwheels but I only do it moderately, perhaps not even moderately. I know if the hosts receive enough complaints that they will suspend your account, but in your experience, which host is the most reliable when it comes to link building?

    Peter, I hope someone will answer but I'm not expecting it - I've been trying to either find the answer to this via search, or having someone share it, for months --- and apparently it's one of those questions no one will answer :confused:

    I have 100 sites on GoDaddy-- their service has always worked totally great for me. I find HostGator to be super confusing personally.

    hostgator is the best host IMO. As long as everything you're doing is legal, you should without a doubt go with hostgator

    edit:

    hostmonster sucks. I had a very successful forum with hostmonster and it was doing great and then all of a sudden it didn't work and my cpanel was glitching and stuff and they didn't fix it until everybody gave up and forgot about my site.

    I used to use Hostgator as well with no complaints but then discovered dollar2Host and have been using them ever since with no complaints. It's pretty much the same unlimited everything that Hostgator offers but at a much lower price of only $2.00/month or $24/annually. It more than meets my needs for about $7.00 less than what I was paying Hostgator. Whether it is as good as Hostgator or Go Daddy when it comes to hosting hundreds of sites I can't say because I only have a few sites. But like I said, I've been very happy with them for the last 7 months or so.
