    Ok tech people,

    I'm looking to start a website (no, not about the stern show or anything like that), and would like to know what hosting company I should go through.

    I bought a domain name through namecheap, and was looking at website hosting and some people told me to use WordPress because they have good templates, but to get it free, your site will have "WordPress" in it (mywebsite.wordpress.com, instead of just ".com").

    I heard you can go through go daddy and they have wordpress templates and I haven't done html since ebay was in its infancy, I feel the templates would be the best bet. This will be my first time doing this.

    Your thoughts?

    It all depends on what you want to do with your website. What kind of website will it be? What features will it need? How much traffic do you think it will get?

    Go here and get a cheap starter package with cPanel, install wordpress via your admin panel you will be .com only.

    You are welcome.

    What kind of pricing should I be looking for? The domain name cost me about $10 a year, and I saw hosting sites have different prices per month, $4.00, $6.00 and up.

    Yeah get the 4 bucks man, you will be starting at the bottom, you wont need anymore than that.

    They also have wordpress hosting where they will install it for you for 5 bucks a month.

    It's not anything big, I just wanted to start a site for a comic I made to hopefully get some word of mouth started up.

    This is obviously a ploy by the OP to get free advertising knowing someone will eventually ask the name of the site.

    I'm not looking for free advertising, and I actually wouldn't give out the name yet. One reason is because I don't want to be accused of shilling, but it's mostly because I'm afraid of putting the whammy on it before it's up and running (yes, I'm a little superstitious).

    I did not like GoDaddy and found it non-intuitive.
