Would this hosting service + domain name price be good for what I want to do?

    Hi,
    I'm creating another thread in the right forum
    Domain I'd go with godaddy, $11 for 2 years but I don't know how to choose a domain name. Maybe something generic that could be okay for many subdomains?
    I would like to go with stablehost but I don't know if I should take the stable plan basic with 3GB bandwidth or the more expensive one with 7GB bandwidth. I have a 50% off so it's a choice between $20 and $29 basically for one year but I am a complete beginner.

    I've never made money with anything online (with my own website at least). I would like to host around 10 WP mini-content sites affiliates with Clkbank mainly and Amazon a little too.

    Do you think 3GB is enough for that? I hope so.

    The storage space really depends on the files of your website. Are you going to have products, images and videos on your website? 3GB is not good enough for 10 WordPress sites because it will have a database too. You should check the database limitations with the host you are signing up with too.

    Hi,
    Well, I think 3GB will be more than enough. I won't host ANY image/video/product, I'll just be linking to websites.
    I'd rather use an external image host such as imgur for now. It's reliable enough and I don't see the point in hosting 30 banners and using my own bandwidth for this.

    Apparently one WP install is 10MB max, so technically I could host about 300 websites. That's more than enough for now. :)
    Now I know I'll need plugins, so maybe I can only host 100 or 50 websites in the end, but that's fine.

    Yeah 3Gb is more than enough if your site isn't heavy on dynamic content.

    Good luck with your websites, keep working hard and I am sure it's going to work out for you.

    If I were you I would not go with the cheapest option here, and consider unlimited everything such as Hostwinds Business Ultimate for instance.

    Thank you very much all, I'll order the 3GB hosting as soon as I find a suitable domain name.
