Who's your Host?
Not long ago, when I started my first blog, I decided to go with Bravenet, sort of. I can't even tell you how I came across Bravenet. I really knew nothing about web hosting and was just looking for somewhere to start a blog.
My second blog, this one, was a Blogspot blog, but I bought the domain. I also have a third blog through Today.com and found that program from someone else's blog. I read a lot about webhosting on different blogs and the information is overwhelming and at times confusing. I'm not super tech savvy and some of the lingo goes over my head. Everyone has their favorites and keeping the information straight is down right impossible... until now.
Webhostingrating.com has a list of hosts ranked in categories such as Best Blog Hosting, Best Budget Hosting, and Best Forum Hosting. It breaks down the "plans" of each host in easy to understand terms and lists pricing information as well.
I think the most beneficial part of the site is it's articles. I've found great information on Linux hosting, the benefits of sub domains, as well as the benefits of dedicated server hosting.
If you are new, like me, this site may be a very useful tool to get you started.
