Web hosting revealed

When the internet started, I’m sure more than a few of us thought it would be a passing phase. Or at least something that most people would never need.

Well, as we all know now, the internet is here to stay. It’s now crucial to many aspects of our lives, especially if we’re looking for side income.

Serious bloggers and business owners must have their own websites, so now it’s just a matter of choosing the right web hosting company. Whew! What a daunting task, with hosting companies popping up left and right.

I just found a cool website, Web Hosting Geeks, that offers side-by-side comparisons for various hosting companies, as well as customer reviews. Their site also offers lots of information, including links to relevant articles about web hosting. If you’re considering switching companies, starting a new site on with a new host, or you’re just interested in keeping up with what’s out there, check it out.

Do you have multiple blogs or websites? How do you keep up with the latest companies?

AN Hosting has lost its mind!

If you’re reading this blog, you probably already have a blog or website. Even if you do, this offer is for you.

First, let me tell you that I’ve been using AN Hosting since I started my blog. It’s been great! 

I think there was one day that it was down for some reason, but they fixed that and it’s been great ever since. I also like that I can get phone support 24 hours a day.

On the negative side, I will say that the cpanel isn’t that easy to figure out. 

That said, AN Hosting is offering an incredible deal on their hosting package. As soon as I get the funds I’ll be moving one of my other websites to them.

New hosting…new address…new learning curve

I’ve moved! I still have WordPress as my blog platform, but now I’m with AN Hosting instead of

I’m not a web developer, and I must say this is all very confusing. I figured out how to move my blog easily enough. But there’s all these bells and whistles that seem to require a degree in rocket science.

I’ll get it soon enough, but it’ll take me some time. For now, enj0y my journey! I’ll try to write frequently as I play with themes, features, and all the other gadgets.

  • Consider your bank account
