If you are going to have an internet business you are going to need a hosting company to host your files for you on a server somewhere. In the beginning of my deep dive into internet marketing, I started out like a lot of people using GoDaddy. That was initially fine but back then they seem to be having a lot of support issues. I was constantly fixing things related to the back end setup and had a hard time locating my URL’s and maintaining them. Hard to tell if it was “me” because of my newness to the industry or the way many of these companies assume you are technically oriented so their websites use a LOT of technical jargon.
In general here is what I remember:
Eventually, I switched over to Host Gator who was bought out soon after. Like any relationship it has been rocky at times but I continue to use them and find it very easy to navigate. Here is what I find:
As a final word, I’ll mention that I have the “Baby” account that cost me roughly $7 a month. I purchase it in 3-year increments to get the discount. Within this account, I have 7 Add-On domains under my main domain. When your domains are set up as “Add-On Domains” they appear as stand-alone domains and do not have a prefix of the primary account. If you want your web address to “appear” to be stand alone then set them up as Add-On Domains.

To use HostGator click on this link. I’m an affiliate for HostGator so will receive a commission if you use my link. This is what allows me to afford the time to write these reviews so I appreciate your support.
Please comment or place your questions below. I will help as best I can but remember you are far better ahead if you are having issues to call tech support to help you resolve them. The goal of this review is not to provide technical support but rather help you to make a good decision on your hosting choice.
