    Views on website hosting sought.

    I am contemplating a personal blog/ e-commerce site.

    Lookingfor recommendations of hosting provider and experiences.

    Used to have hostgator reseller account in the past. ( Which I did not use properly)

    Most web based reviews are loaded with positive spin ( biased reviews).

    Does having UK based hosting make any difference?

    Consider cloud based hosting? However only have small budget.

    Will be doing mostly everything myself.  TIA.

    If you have the technical skills to totally install and manage a server, cloud-based is much cheaper and phenomenally impressive nowadays. Highly recommend Digital Ocean. Unbelievably cheap and scalable but you are totally on your own if it goes wrong!

    If you would prefer managed hosting where there's always someone on the other end of a phone/email to help you, I have used Catalyst2 for nearly 15 years and they are amazing. They'll even answer tickets at 3pm on Christmas Day. But...that level of services comes at a price.

    Thanks for reply and insight. Will take a look at these options.

    I'm currently considering either siteground or tshosts. shared hosting.

    Been advised to avoid godaddy. Most likely just WP site with YouTube vids.

    I was also looking into cloud based hosting. ( back up point of view)

    Is Amazon - aws mainly for larger data sites?

    Any help and pointers appreciated.

    Thank you Mark.. I have put my plans on hold till I figure out roadmap of life.

    I still see websites as the modern real estate of the future. Wink

    Just wish I was not a control numpty and learned to outsource.

    Edit - just looked at prices.

    Is the £9.99 reseller hosting?  Different package For unlimited domains? Didn't find on landing page.
