Find a Host

No, not a host for your party, I know you can do that yourself quite well. I'm talking about finding the best web hosting service for your food blog or website.

Almost everyone will tell you that if you are serious about blogging, you really should have your own domain and hosting. But what if, like me, you don't know much about hosting and domains, and all the other stuff that goes with setting up your own site? Your first move is to learn more about web hosting. Once you're familiar with the lingo and your needs, then start comparing hosting services. The website can help you with that. They compare not just rates but the services offered by different hosting providers. You'll learn, browsing through the Hosting Reports, that not all providers are the same.

One of the things you should also keep in mind is how good their customer service is. Can you reach someone at three in the morning when you are most likely to be working on your website? Another thing is how much memory do you need? How about bandwidth? You can find the answers to these questions on the Web Hosting Report.
