I use one web hosting service EXCLUSIVELY and that service is Host Monster.
You can shop around, in fact I encourage you to do so, but if you consider everything I know of no other hosting service that comes even close. Here’s why…
1. Customer service. I used one hosting service a few years ago and was happy until I called the 1-800 number because I needed help. In fact I was so disappointed with how I was treated I immediately droped them and looked for a new hosting company and lived with the down time until I got it right. When your website is down you need great customer service not email support or technicians that you can’t understand. Host Monster is the best in customer service, and in my book it is the number one reason you should consider them.
2. Features. Host Monster has everything you need to run a great website and they are on it when it comes to keeping everything they sponsor (Joomla, WordPress, etc.) up to date and secure. They have the full suite of available services via SimpleScript, as well as a host of other services that round them out to number one. Again.
3. Uptime. I haven’t experienced ANY downtime wtih Host Monster. Uptime is good, downtime is… time to look for a new hosting service!
4. Cost. Host Monster has special all the time. They don’t charge you set up fees and once you have one domain registered, it is very easy to add new domains (at $10 each without having to pay the full price for entire hosting package. There may be cheaper services, if there are I am not aware of them, but at $5.95 a month (the ad below says $6.95 a month, but they are running a special right now) you can’t go wrong!
5. Instant on. When you purchase a domain name and get it hosted through Host Monster you have instant access to your website. They’ll call you afterward to confirm that a human being registered the domain name (prevents bots from auto-registering domains), but you get the benefit of the doubt in the meantime.
6. cPanel. cPanel is the most widely recognized hosting panel available. We chose it for its flexibility and security. Try it for yourself!
7. 100% US-Based Support. All of their support—phone, chat and email—is handled by their Support Engineers in our Provo, Utah HQ!
8. A long list of features. Go here and see for yourself —>>> https://www.hostmonster.com/cgi/info/hosting_features.
