I am 2 days ahead of the deadline so this has given me time to explore more about servers and domain names. Is Godaddy actually the best provider for this? Can someone explain me how servers work and how to get the best of them? I hope u can help me.

I don't know who said that Godaddy was the best place to host your site.

GoDaddy offers hosting for the same people that go there with no clue on how to handle setting up a website. It's not a good solution unless you don't know diddly squat. Read the above links and things should start to make more sense.

I prefer GoDaddy for my domain names. Never had a problem with them and their website is easy enough to use. Not to mention, there usually the cheapest place out there (factoring in renewal prices).

As far as shared hosting goes, Dreamhost is a hard one to beat. Dirt cheap prices with great uptime and customer service (no phone, though). They give you way more than you pay for in features and usage, and they're quite fair and human at the same time. If it's not obvious, I recommend them.

I had GoDaddy, but ended up dropping because of frequent outages. I switched to HostGator just over a year ago and have been very happy with their service and uptime. However, I do prefer GoDaddy for domain registration and management.

We use godaddy at work for DNS and hosting our main site, no problems with them at all.

I use 1and1 for my personal site, and again no problems.

a lot of it depends on what you want to do with the site, how much traffic you will be getting, how much space you need, and what features you need. For cheap low feature webhosting Godaddy is good, as is 1and1, and probably several other places.

edward, if indeed that is your name, what in the world are you about? You don't care about web hosting any more than you care about learning HTML to design your website.

You were two days ahead of your deadline when you posted this identical post on October 29th when you posted this identical post at web wiz forums
http://forums.webwizguide.com/forum_pos ... PID=136389

two weeks later you told them you chose Godaddy so obviously you don't need any additional help here. Especially since you're now over month past your deadline.
