Web Hosting Recommendations
By Richard Rost   Richard Rost on Twitter Richard Rost on LinkedIn Email Richard Rost   10 years ago

I recommend GoDaddy.com for your web hosting needs. They are priced very reasonable, and so far have provided me with decent service (both web service and customer service).

I used to recommend 1&1 web hosting, but they jerked me around, so now I not only DON'T recommend them anymore, I actively tell people NOT to use them.

I had to move several of my domains and hosting to GoDaddy a while back because of problems with 1&1 and everything was very smooth. I haven't had ANY problems with them so far (knock on wood) and my sites have been up and quick.

I host my videos and downloads on an Amazon S3 server since GoDaddy has limitations on the types of content you can put on their sites. So the site itself runs on GoDaddy, but the videos load from Amazon.

If you're taking my ASP or Frontpage classes, make sure to sign up for MICROSOFT hosting. You will need Frontpage Server Extensions (which they will set up for you). You do NOT want the Linux server with PHP.

(As of right now, Feb 2011, they have a basic Windows hosting package for just $4.99 a month which is perfectly fine for MOST sites).

Any questions, post them here.

I finally heard back from a rep at GoDaddy that knew what I was talking about. They confirmed that you need one of their Dedicated Servers or Virtual Dedicated Servers to run Sharepoint Services. The cheapest is about $30 a month.

I'm looking into the two places that Alex mentioned. I'd love to have a preferred service provider ready so that when I release my Sharepoint Seminar, I can have a hosting package (hopefully with a discount) that I can recommend to my students. That way I can say, "ho here, sign up for this, and here's how to use it."

Of course, I could always set up Sharepoint in my office... but I'm still running Windows 2000 Server here (hey, it works GREAT and is tweaked to my perfection) and it doesn't come with Sharepoint... so I'd have to upgrade to Windows 2008 Server and that's more work that I want to do right now... plus that doesn't give me a solution for YOU.

Besides... having a web site hosted by someone else is the way to go. That way you don't have to worry about up-time, server room temperature, ISP problems, and all that stuff. If something goes wrong you just call them and say "FIX IT!!!"
