Last year I started my own website in an attempt to sell my homemade soap. I searched the internet to find a good web host and then signed up with what I hoped was the best for the amount of money that I could afford to spend. After six months I gave up on my own website.
I wish that I had researched web hosting companies a little more thoroughly. My home business needed a Windows based site that included a checkout cart. Sounds simple but it isn't. There are tons of web hosts out there but they're not all created equal.
If you're in the market for a web host, do yourself a favor and research web hosting options. Compare and contrast hosts to find an option that works for you.
