I need a new web host but I’m really getting lost in them. For example, are FatCow or iPage legitimate, or scams? What are hosting providers that you use, and definitely know to work? I don’t want to get scammed, so any advise, tips, or things to look out for would be grand to know.
I need a website for my art portfolio, so it would have a lot of images and perhaps a shopping cart, eventually.
Both of those are legitimate hosts, plus iPage has anytime money back guarantee and a US based phone support.
They also have 50% sale right now, one year of hosting for .00 (also includes a domain name).
They have one of the most popular hosting platforms, which currently hosts over a million websites. They’re also one of the oldest hosting companies, founded in 1998.
They include a free point & click online site builder so you can create a website without any programming (easily, just by drag and drop) or you could install WordPress (they include easy, one click install from their control panel), choose a theme that you like, and start adding content.
They also have a great custom control panel with OneClick installs of all the popular software like WordPress, Joomla, Forums, Chat, Galleries, Online stores and a lot more.
