Default A few questions about domains and hosting

Hi, i am just curious to know if anyone has any recommendations on who i should go with for hosting, domain name and any particular packages you like. I have been looking at godaddy but i heard a few negative things in regards to them. I have used them in the past and personally didnt have an issue but that a few years ago. Any suggests?

Godaddy are ok for domain name registration, I have never used their hosting so can't comment on that. You don't have to host your website with the same company your domain is registered with. I would recommend choosing a host that uses Cpanel, it is the most popular control panel around, and if you find you are not happy with your host it is very easy to transfer your data to a new host.

Godaddy = domain regs
Hostgator = hosting

I've worked with godaddy, ipage and hostgator.

Whatever you do, don't use ipage, access is always slow and unreliable. Godaddy is ok with speed, though their cPanel is not very intuitive.

I recommend Hostgator all the way.

I do a lot of hosting for local business and I use GoDaddy for my Domain name register. I tried their hosting, it was terrible. They like many over sell their servers. If you are going to be working with local companies I recommend finding a hosting service that has servers close to you.

The difference can be huge in the response times of the sites.

I'll spare you a rant on GoDaddy, but I don't give them any of my business for various reasons.

For hosting, I use Linode, and I can highly recommend them if you're looking for a VPS. In general, I recommend that you use separate companies for your hosting and domain names.
