What Web Host Do You Use?

My next project is to create my own professional website where I will have complete control. I plan to use a web host that can work with WordPress as I have found a few themes from that I am considering purchasing.

From reading around online trying to figure out which web host to use, I am leaning towards using

Does anyone have any experiences with BlueHost that they can share with me? Good and bad.

Or even better, what web host do you use for your website? And Why?

I used to be on and they are very good. I am not the best on this area but they are the best host I have used so far.

4 Years Ago, but I don't recommend them. There are cheaper alternatives that I'll look at when my contract come up for renewal.

Before you check BlueHost, which is excellent, try I used GoDaddy for years but, short of the long, 1and1 is a good competitor and I think is more focused on the internet business than GoDaddy.

Speaking of WordPress. I have the hosted version from ( not .org ) and it does me good for just my photoblog. My portfolio is on

I don't have a website with pages of sorts, but a global profile that leads you to the many social channels that I am on. Check it out for an example:

I believe that technology moves so fast that the only thing that should be stationary is your domain name, and you move ( forward ) your presence with the trends.

You know how it goes, the 'cold call' is dead, and before anyone will buy from you they will usually check you out on your business social media. So give them some eye candy.

Also, a great book is "Social BOOM!" by Jeffery Gitomer.

Thats my 2 anyway.

I've used Photium for years. They're great, and super-responsive to questions.

I use why because it's FREE. They of course have paid packages which mostly gets you better customer service. But the free account still has unlimited storage and bandwidth. I have been with them for 3 years now with no complaints.

Being free is especially useful to play and experiment. Check them out for what features they offer compared to what you need.

Thanks for all the replies.

A couple others were mentioned that I was considering using instead of BlueHost, such as HostGator.

I just received an email from an FAA visitor recommending for web hosting. I'm wondering is it good or just someone who is a PR for them


I have never heard of them, to be honest.

I use godaddy been with them for 8yrs, before godaddy, hubby and I hosted our own sites. I use wordpress to build my site and have no issues with godaddy or wordpress.

I use godaddy for my domain name but have been using as my host. I don't know whether they use word press because I use WYSIWYG web builder for my site. I wanted to keep everything separate.

I've been using Just Host for four years and never really had a problem so far. Only their technical service can be a bit slow to reply to your emails but other than that, it's good.

I've been gradually moving all my websites off Hostgator. Have had major uptime and customer service problems with them. Moving gradually onto Bluehost and am, by and large, satisfied. I'm cheap and any shared hosting provider is going to be a "you get what you pay for" scenario. Have had Bluehost go down here and there for short periods of time, and it seems they've gone down at the same time as Hostgator, so I have a feeling they're housed in the same datacenter.

I don't currently have any sites, but I've used Hostgator in the past. I've also helped others set up sites using Hostgator. They are reliable, and they have awesome 24/7 chat support. Also very affordable prices.
