I have been asked by a few readers who I use for my web hosting. To let you know, I am someone who does not want to spend in excess of $100 to host a blog. Nor do I use a free blog site as that just helps whoever owns the site. Thus, I use Dot5Hosting. Plus, it is run in America, by Americans and not some psudo-socialist dot com company located in the Left Coast (you know who I am talking about!)
They have been doing a great job with my accounts over the past few years!. And their customer service beats the hell out of most, if not all of the others.
Best of all, the Hosting special going on right now is $3.96/month with a 2 year subscription! The guys over at some of the other hosts are charging more than that for 1 year. And do not worry about the link stuff – that gives you a rate better than mine as a new client!
Plus, using these folks, I was able to get onto Google’s first page within a few months (if that is important to you!)
