It's really easy to at least break even when you have your own site. If you pay around 5-7 bucks a month for hosting, you can get that amount back through ads or affiliate earnings. I recommend you give WordPress another shot. It's worth it, trust me.I normally get anything that's free right now as I can't afford many much more than that. For my blogs I use blogger because they host for free, and your blog is right on the web. Also I tried to use WordPress but it just didn't work as well for me.
Since you've been using hosting companies under EIG, can you share your experience with them? I've been hearing a lot about how terrible downtimes are becoming over at HostGator and BlueHost. Have you had any problems with them?I have also used iPage and bluehost those two are also cheap web hostings because you pay 2$ (iPage) and 4$ bluehost and for hostgator you pay also 4$.
This is worth repeating. I think so many make the mistake of ignoring customer support when looking for a hosting provider. You wouldn't want to wait several days - or weeks - before you get a reply if you encounter a problem with your site. Some of the most popular hosting companies have the worst customer support in the industry.I also look at reviews online and see how their support team is, because that is very important.
I usually do some research on the internet before singing up to a web hosting. The thing that I take in to consideration is the up time and response time of their servers.When it comes to finding some hosting for your website, what do you search for? Is money a concern when buying hosting or are you feeling happy to spend whatever it needs? Maybe you like to have a Speed Test budget with hosting and only pay for what you need and then upgrade when needed?
