I have been using Host Gator and Word Press for my website for three months and I am very happy with them. If you are going to start your own site, I would recommend them as my site is always up and they have so much stuff to offer, that I have only scratched the surface as to what I can do with it. http://www.hostgator.com/ is the link to their page. My site is http://goodtimetherapy.com if you want to see how I set it up. After I signed up, I then installed Word Press from their control panel and set my site up as a blog. I just wanted something simple and easy to use and they provided me with both. I have used other hosting sites in the past but was not happy with time it took me to do an update and upload stuff. I am not making any money promoting them, I guess I could if I signed up with them to do that, but I just thought I would pass the word along that they are very good and I have had no problems at all. As far as the cost, it is some where in the ballpark of $75.00 per year for the package that I signed up for and I will keep using them as long as the service stays the same as it has been so far. Just wanted to pass the word along.
