<![CDATA[After you've registered your website domain you will be in need of a web hosting company for a server that your website can live on. The three hosting companies that I’ve used and have good experiences with are Bluehost, GoDaddy and Amazon.com.

Bluehost provides reliable and easy to use website hosting. It’s especially easy if you are using Bluehost as your domain registrarl. I use Bluehost for my own website hosting and that of my clients.
Bluehost has plenty of plans to handle a wide range of hosting needs.
GoDaddy was my first web hosting company. I’ve since migrated from GoDaddy but it still provides a low cost, simple to use resource for hosting sites and email. Prices for monthly hosting start at $7.99 including unlimited storage and bandwidth.
Amazon has some of the most robust tools for hosting and administering your website via their Lightsail service. The service is a bit more complicated that either Bluehost or GoDaddy but has been designed to be easier to use than other Amazon cloud services.
It’s a good way to get your feet wet in cloud computing with Amazon.
