I need a web hosting solution fast!?

Hi, I am a web developer who needs help fast. I have a web site ready to go, but I seem to have problems deciding which web hosting solution is right for me. My site contains only dhtml, and javascript for now. I plan on doing much advanced things later on. Maybe some coldfusion and even php. Some web hosting companies I have in mind are: IXwebhosting, hostmonster, and godaddy. Can someone help me. Again some details may be needed to get a better solution. Please ask. Thanks!

Update:

Control Panel? Damn, I have seem the CPanel and I like it a lot. Other companies, however, offer something call Hsphere, and one call VDeck.. Can someone tell me which one is the best one. I am looking for something very user friendly, and realabile. Thanks

    Godaddy, better support

  • Good idea to check around before choosing your host.

    Since you are a web developer you should choose a host that will allow you to expand. Multiple sites (with seperate emails), PHP 4 support, forums, databases, chat rooms etc...

    Id say since you already have dhtml then you should go with a linux based host as windows is more limited.

    I was in this position about a month ago and tried ALOT of hosts.

    I checked out ixwebhosting and their credentials were not the best:

    Said, Samir samir AT ecommerce DOT com

    Neuhoferstr. 1

    Freistadt, Upper Austria 4240

    Godaddy.com has great prices, but at the moment they are having a surge in new sign ups. With this popularity comes strain on their systems. No offence to current godaddy customers, their prices are hard to beat. I would choose a more reliable host.

    Host monster, now we are getting better. Great features, American company, and good tech support. Cons: they only offer one plan and they dont have cPanel.

    My choice: http://www.geocities.com/minicoup481/host.html

    They offer great space for upgrades and alot of features. You can start with a $10 off coupon (then $5/month thereafter). They have the standard in control panel (cPanel), offer many other features too. Check it out for your trial:

    I hope I made your choice clearer. Let me know.

    Check also the plans of My Webbie Hosting. You can have a hosting plan for as low as $3.95/month which already includes a free domain name, 1.5 G disk space, 50 email accounts with antivirus and spam protection, 2 mailing lists, 150 G monthly data transfer, MySQL database, 24/7 phone and ticket support, and one-hour ticket response time.

    I would definitely go with GoDaddy, for several reasons:

    1). They have the lowest prices for what they offer.

    2). They support PHP & MySQL

    3). They have GREAT tech support

    4). You get tons of storage and bandwidth

    5). 99.9% Uptime

    I'm a web developer myself, and I recommend all of my clients to sign up with GoDaddy.

    You will not regret going with GoDaddy.

    Don't use Godaddy, if you do some research you'll find lots of horror stories about their hosting. They run php in safe mode (lots of restrictions etc). I would suggest having a look at http://www.radixhosting.com/ they offer all the features you need, and are inexpensive.
