Question

Can you recommend a good web host?

by leobond88 / September 30, 2015 6:15 AM PDT

Hi guys! I am currently in the process of launching a small business and am looking for a web hosting company for my website. I find it rather difficult to compare the various services these companies offer and how much they would actually cost me. I would like to find one web hosting company that does everything, provide me with great hosting capabilities, great building and design tools, advertising tools, a fair price, and good customer service. I currently have my eye on inmotion hosting. Are they any good? Are there any legit review sites?

But most replies with links are just spammers. You know what was said about the search for an honest man?

Why is it difficult to get pricing? If a web host won't reveal pricing, then why consider them?

Depends on the type of platform you're running. In my personal experience both 1and1 and GoDaddy were terribly slow. When I switched from GoDaddy to WPEngine (I have a wordpress blog), it was literally night and day.
