I have a burning question. I am currently working on an online womens' magazine and I am searching for a hosting site. However, I am running into a few questions. Is it better to buy a web host or build your own website? Keep in mind this is for my magazine.
The website designer I am using has told me it's ok to use a site to host it, but I just want some more opinions. Thanks
After looking at this discussion I decided to call Host Monster because I am paying a lot more for hosting. I would pay less in 3 years at Hostmaster than I pay for 1 year with the company that currently hosts my site. This information saved me about $850. Thanks sistas.
I use both Bluehost and Godaddy. Bluehost is relatively inexpensive--about $7 per month. You can host as many domain names as you like through them without paying additional hosting charges per site. They also have one-click Wordpress install. Most importantly, their customer service is extremely responsive. GoDaddy works well too, but it's not as easy to use (in my opinion) if you don't have some web design know-how). They have great customer service too, but I've found the technical support providers to be more knowledgeable on Bluehost. Good luck!

Lots of great tips here already. I use hostmonster and 1and1. Something you may want to consider is to use a different host for your site and your domains. That way, if anything goes wrong with the site, you can do a quick redirect with the domain. BTW, I'd love to connect with you all on FB.

Why not attend the free webinar on Tuesday night, March 8th at 8pm EST at http://www.aaconnection.com/webinar.php? See how to put location, location, location to work for you. Then "holler back at your girl" to let me know what you think.
I was recommended to use GoDaddy for purchasing your domains, and Hostgator for hosting. With Hostgator is very inexpensive (starting as low as $3.96 per/mo.) and it does have WordPress installation with the lastest plugins.
