Web Hosting.......The Basics

I obviously have this blog hosted on Blogger, but this year I am thinking of starting some new blogs/websites on some other topics (hopefully interesting and fun ones!), and so I have entered the world of "web hosting". Ack---it is somewhat confusing to me because I have been so spoiled by the ease of setting up my first blog (my baby) on blogger, and it's been great!
But there advantages to having your own domain, such as full control of your website, and so I decided that I need to explore my options and learn more about web hosting.

But like I said, it's been a bit confusing. So today I was really happy to have come across this website, web hosting choice because it has so much information about web hosting. A really neat thing is their free guide that helps you choose the best web host for your personal or business site based on criteria that you plug in. So I was able to plug in how much I wanted to pay each month for hosting, and I got a listing of about 30 services instantly with an easy chart to compare all their fees and such. Pretty cool.

I also like their "Quick Start" page...easy to understand step by step guide to starting your own site. Gotta love stuff like this if you are anything like me when it comes to tech stuff! Ugh.

Anyway, if you have ideas for a website and/or blog you want to start this year, as part of your work at home plans, this site is worth checking out for more information on how to get started!
