    So who do you use for your hosting provider and does it include your domain?

    I use hostmonster.com .

    I've used a few different hosts. I'm sure there are lots of good ones... but there are also lots of bad ones.

    hostmonster is affordable, dependable, a killer value.

    What's more, is that when you call there's almost never a wait. And there's no rush to get you off the phone for the next caller. They're good. They're AMERICAN! No impossible-to-understand accents...

    I bought my domain name separately years before I went to them, so I'm not sure if they "include" it in their costs.

    I use godaddy for several of our sites. They're service, up-time, price, and quality are good, but since we build our sites in-house I can't say much about their design.

    I can say that I struggled with some of our coding on our larger retail sites, but their tech. support worked with me to fix most issues or I just did a workaround.

    Godaddy also has a lot of free add-ons if you wanted your own forum, blog, or newsletter for your site.

    Note: your host does not have to be your (domain) registrar although you can probably get better rates if they were.
