I am planning to start a new website through WordPress. Please tell me what technical knowledge I need before starting. What resources I should have before starting? Suggest me the best hassle free & cheap web hosting service.
A frequently-asked query:
Out of the service providers I have listed below, who offers the best web hosting package/service & site builder? I am interested in a WordPress.org blog. I know WordPress.com is free and simple, but I don’t want the free service because I want control over my blog. HOWEVER, I am so confused as to which provider to use. I have used GoDaddy in the past but their site builder left much to be desired AND I could never seem to insert the proper code in the GoogleTools to get Google to recognize my site. GoDaddy couldn’t get it correct either and said it was a Google issue (hmmmm…don’t know how true that was).
The sites WordPress.org recommends are BlueHost; DreamHost; MediaTemple; GoDaddy; JustHost and Laughing Squid.
So, I really need your help. Which is the best to use?
Thanks to those who have answered so far, but I really ONLY want to know about the service providers I have listed above. Please don’t include other providers. Thank you for all of your help.
A common question:
I currently use 1&1 and they aren’t the greatest choice. I am looking for a good website hosting provider that is on the cheaper side, good customer service, and supports WordPress. Any suggestions?
