Oh man, this is a big question! i have been asking this same question around the net for about half a year! The best answer I can come up with is a dedicated server option seems to be the best choice. And I would assume that if you need a dedicated host then you need a company that is reliable and has experience. I like hostgator.com but i am sure that there are other places to go. Let me know what you end up with.

Can you tell me more about WP multi-user? I thot Wp allows you to create as many users as you like.

I think DanKo is talking about Wordpress MU which is basically the same thing as wordpress but it allows you to setup a blogging service on your web host, like wordpress.com or blogger.com You can find out more at:

DanKo,

Find yourself a host that has Fantastico. This is a software that will install applications with 1-click from your cPanel. WordPress is one of those software included with Fantastico :-)

I'm not trying to plug Hostgator or anything, but I just signed up for a reseller account with them and they have Fantastico, which does have WordPress as one of the options.

I haven't had any experience with blogs yet.. is WordPress one of the better ones or something? The three I have available are WordPress, b2evolution, and Nucleus.

They're all good software for blogging. Here's a breakdown of each:

Why dedicated? Shared, semi-dedicated or VPS environment are still options to consider.
I recommend you to consider big and well-established companies as your hosting partners and start with shared or semi-dedicated:
Bluehost.com
Lunarpages.com
Serverpoint.com

Fantastico does not support Wordpress MU. Remember everyone, regular Wordpress DOES NOT equal Wordpress MU. They are two different applications that require different hosting options.

As I have said before look at http://mu.wordpress.org for more information.

It seems that most recommend dedicated because of the strain that the server takes. I will say this again, Wordpress MU is not your average Wordpress blog. Wordpress MU is designed to manage and implement up to thousands of blogs on the same server. It is implemented at sites like CNN, The New York Times, Yahoo, and Harvard Law School.

If you need a dedicated server for running WordPress MU, you may have it from GoDaady.com, [banned domain] and RackSpace.com. All these companies recommend nice dedis for affordable prices.

I would not recommend running anything on Godaddy. Especially something that requires a dedicated host. The simple fact that they don't give shell access is absurd!

hmm well alot of hosts should be friendly, if they want business that is. Nowadays too, most hosts will offer WP and assistance with installing/configuring it.

If you need further help let me know. Thanks

ServerPoint.com offers WordPress hosting, moreover they offer free WordPress themes if someone needs it. This company is optimized for web applications and it's good for their clients to use such services.

Wordpress MU not available on Fantastico. I've found it hard to install anyway. Some sub domain wildcard setting needed to run the WP-MU for my blog portal purpose
