For us to get our blogs onto the Internet, we will need a hosting service provider. However there are many web hosting companies out there, ranging from providing free services with few options up to expensive business packages. So how do we choose the hosting plan that can suit our needs best? I am unable to compile a list of good web hosting companies because I have yet to experience all of their services. But I can recommend WPWebHost & Hostgator. However i have never used WPWebHost but i see about the good reviews and think about this later.
