    What is the best hosting service for people trying to get an ecommerce site started? Have any of you BAF members had a ecommerce site and used hosting before? Which hosting service did you prefer and why? Load speeds?

    Thanks for any answers.

    My experience with Jumpline.com is superb. The equipment is reliable and fast and the support they provide is knowledgeable, answers are returned quickly.
    They always update all their programs to the newest version, like Cpanel, fantastico, MySQL, Apache etc. Their prices are competitive, the servers are reliable & speedy fast, their tech support superb professional and timely.

    If you are just getting started, GoDaddy is a pretty good hosting company. They are open for support 24/7.

    Make sure the host has the payment option your looking for. I don't even think twice about a host that doesn't accept paypal.

    Thanks for considering us, IOLES

    You can send an email to a potential web hosting service and judge their customer service, firsthand.

    Taking into account your needs, I think that hostingsource.com would be a great deal - their vps that start from $10/mo will be ok for running e-shops.
    Their technical support is outstanding - support tickets tend to get a response within minutes, which usually resolves the problem. Every conversation was pleasant and helpful.

    Don't sacrifice security and quality. It is not ideal to jump into affordable web hosts in which in the long run can lead to many problems such as web site accessibility and, worst, shutting down of web site.

    For me whenever I talk about my personal web site I am dead on having one a secure, reliable and 24/7 up hosting because I am doing a business that needs my site to stay up forever and the moment it goes down I can get label of scam so I prefer GoDaddy so far they have 100% track record with never going down so I feel really good with them. I am using their coupon code “50Host” this gives me 50% discount over hosting which is terrific!

    Quite hard to say; I have seen many people who started from shared hosting and later upgraded their services to VPS or Dedicated hosting service. And I have also seen people who directly preferred dedicated box to host their e-commerce website. So it all depends on the e-commerce site’s resource requirements.

    It depends on e-commerce site resource usage. I will suggest you to go with 1gbps port, raid10 or ssd, if you need good loading speed.

    For different package is different, according to what kind of website you want to build, the higher price is not always better, suitable is best.

    GoDaddy for every reason from quality of service to suitable price they have got everything perfect. They also have excellent customer service which is 24/7 available to help us while they also have got the latest promo code “host12” so by this we will get the best hosting at just 1 USD per month.
