    So I bought domains and am looking for hosting to create my site.I'm looking to creat this to boost my Youtube account and overall presence online. One thing that I'm looking to fowards is seo. I've done some research and have received negative reviews for WIX because of multiple seo restrictions. Keep in mind i'm not a HTML genius, nor would I want to spend hours writing it, hence why I would be going to a clean and fast source. Currently looking at Webstarts and Godaddy,Jimdo and Weebly. I wanted to know if anyone has any suggestions that would be ok for seo, but also for mobile optimization as well. Many thanks!

    Try Wordpress. It's good for beginners. Most hosting providers will install it for you.

    Hi Christmasishere,
    Theres lots of good hosting providers that can be found here and with the deals on at the moment you should be able to save your self a pretty penny. Basically I would recommend that you start looking at wordpress. It should be relatively simple to setup in a basic form and then when you feel more comfortable you can start doing more advanced things with it without having to manually move all your content to a different host / platform. If you look for a host that has softaculous or installatron that will enable you to install wordpress at a click of a button (a bit like installing a program on windows) instead of you having to manually install and set one up.

    Two places I would reccoemend to take a look for some shared hosting:
    1.)WebHostingTalk shared hosting offers: http://www.webhostingtalk.com/forumdisplay.php?f=4
    2.)BHW market Place http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/f196-hosting/

    The benefit of going to the BHW market place is that you will be able to see the peer feedback of users here that have used their hosting so you can be a bit more sure that the service (and more importantly the support) is going to be good.

    Then you'll want to familiarise yourself with the basics of wordpress a simple google search should help you out with that or searching on this forum for how to use wordpress.

    PowerUpHosting is good , and they can set you up a wordpress panel to use besides the classic Cpanel

    Watch for cyber monday these next few days! Last year I got 1 ENTIRE year of hosting and free .com with webhostingbuzz for 8$ USD.

    I will be searching everywhere for a similar deal. Private message me if you find something or want to know if I found a good deal. I will try to find 80% - 90% off for another full year of wordpress hosting because I'm a cheap bastard

    So I've read through the comments and what do you guys think of website builders, like squarespace, weebly or jimdo?
