    Bluehost has some nice features in their user control panel and access to a lot of auto-install apps like Gallery (might be attractive to you since you're a photographer), blog software, etc. You can test drive their User CP at their site so you can get a feel for how their system works. The one thing about Bluehost that has always been good in my experience has been their support; seemed to be a bit more responsive and knowledgeable than most budget hosting companies the couple of times I needed something from them.

    Nah, you can just create your site and upload it via ftp and be up and running if that's the case. :up:

    i hate this, for every 5 to 6 good reviews i find the same number of bad. i was planning on using godaddy for the domain and hostgator for the hosting but they have stopped windows host at the moment :(

    why is this so hard

    Stop your whining. When I was your age we had to choose webhosts uphill both ways in eight feet of snow in -50 degree weather.

    When I was your age, a web host was a spider web that ate little hobbits.

    A real WebHosting company hosted stuff on freaking VAX systems.
