More and more bloggers every day want to ‘graduate’ from using free blog hosting provided by Blogger.com / WordPress.com and other similar blog hosting providers. Making a jump from a ‘managed’ environment to full-featured web hosting can be a daunting prospect for newbies. Web Hosting Choice makes this decision easier for such users. It provides comprehensive listing of web hosting providers as ‘Top 10’ and in further drill-downs in different specific categories of hostings depending on the type of technology you won’t or the usage you envision. ‘Learning Center’ on the same site provides basic information about the things that you need to keep in mind when choosing your provider. Especially worth noting is the ‘Scams‘ article in its learning center which lists common pitfalls of hosts who are not that reliable. (Of course, even a lot of the bigger web hosting companies sometimes go in for such marketing hyperbole.) You can even carry out advanced search to find web hosts matching the criteria you desire – such as price, bandwidth, payment methods accepted (important for some who prefer to pay via PayPal instead of credit card or cheque), technologies supported by the web host, etc. For regular updates, you can even sign up for their monthly newsletter on web hosting.
