What is considered the best "hosts" for websites or blogs?

by LoyalAmerican1 / December 9, 2014 4:46 AM PST

I recently obtained a beginner's package for only $4/mo. with Cosmobi if you mention ID# AYFDE. They even created my site from scratch. It is Great because it is mobile-optimized which is better than mobile-friendly. My question is does anyone else have some personal experiences with their website's host or have any opinions?

Your first post is pretty spammy so let's keep all the rest link free.

Also, keep in mind "best" was not defined well. Some folk need simple, other think best = "CHEAP!" and I can't tell what you consider best today is.

Hello Bob,
I am new to the discussion forum; If I can not discuss what I bought and am utilizing, how do I mention to others to discuss for advice? Thank you

Sure you can

One of the spammer's ploys is to try to skirt the no spam rules by leading without links and telling some code like you did. Not a good start.

Since you didn't move forward with defining what you think makes a great/best for you system, you're digging the usual hole a spammer digs.

Stop that and as they say in Star Wars "stay on target."

Yes, I am a U.S. Veteran. I guess I am just not educated because I can't explain what I mean in fancy computer terms that are usually only transparent to the experts.
I bought a website, named it in an online discussion forum and asked for advice and opinions based on Freedom of Speech without slandering or being negative and Wow. I did not ask anyone to visit that site, only hoping someone else knew of it and could get a good conversation going. I was trying to help myself and others. Now I am being told I am "digging the same hole as other spammers".

Not your fault entirely.

The spammers have their ways with words and you lead with same. So I noted it and tried to steer you to tell what you mean by "best." To prime the pump I shared what many consider "bests."

For most it seems that cost and ease of use are the number 1s. If it meets your needs, it would be hard to beat.

In your post, I can't find the url of your website, so indeed you did not ask visiting it. All you told was what you had paid to what hoster with what code, and they built your site. That can be considered an ad for them.

After that you ask a rather vague question about opinions on hosting companies, while it doesn't seem that you are inclined to change. That also gives some doubts on what the purpose of your post was.

I quit everyone. I genuinely do not want to argue and I am in the process of cancelling this account. The fun has been "taken out-of-this". Take care.

I had hoped you would share your definition of best and we would take it from there.

Why cancel? You could tell what you think is best

Otherwise no one can tell what they think about other web hosts.

why cancel you ask?
by LoyalAmerican1 / December 9, 2014 8:06 AM PST

Due to the unfortunate fact now that my profile has been, hypothetically, "flagged" and I am quite certain that the cyber-monitoring will continue and my posted threads ( "uh-oh, Happy learned how to put." Happy Gilmore '96) will be unfairly scrutinized and while the entire premise of having fun and learning is gone. Gee whiz, if only someone could have answered the original question I posted that would have been "neat".
Could you assist in the cancellation of this account please? I would appreciate it. Thank you. I've had two or three posts from intimidating individuals sending me posts about legalities when all I wanted to do was communicate and talk to someone or people about hosts and decipher which is considered the best in our capitalistic-based economy.
In someone's previous post to me it asked me to define best, and people may confuse best for "cheapest". Furthermore, In the United States of America, Best does not mean cheapest. It "goes without saying" what best means. In continuance, based on your epistemology and previous statement, you would equate the best laptop on the market as the cheapest?

"Hey I got this laptop ue6 from coslabtops with the discount code abd144" would that send up the possible spammer flag.

It's a format that's been used by spammers for so long and no one will flag you as a spammer when you try again and tell what your definition of best is.

If you must go, just alert your post and a forum super person can clear it off.
