    Hi,

    It all depends; what exactly do you want out of you hosting solution (maximum bandwidth, highest level of support, hard drive space)? What type of sites/applications do you plan on creating? Think carefully about your requirements, list them out, and at that point you will be able to make an informed decision, or at least get some valuable help.

    Since you are a beginner, I recommend finding a hosting company that has "stellar" reviews for support and support response times. In your case, two things will make a difference in how fast you learn and these are your dedication and the resources available to you. The support group of the hosting company is one of those resources and their willingness to help makes a difference.

    There are a number of different types of hosting account. If you are just starting out then most likely shared hosting will be the type you require (where there are a number of accounts all sharing the one server). If you get one from a company that offers prorated refunds then if it turns out that you need a bigger account you will be able to move without losing any money on an account that you can't use.

    Try a beginner's package that costs less than $10 a month. Play with all the options. You will learn a lot about what you can do. Then decide which hosts to go with. Hosts like host gator have a lot of features and often give you more than you need. Get your feet wet first.

    If you are looking to host a site, you may just find a good shared host. Hosting forums are the best place to find real opinions about hosts. Shortlist a few of them and ask any specific questions.

    If you just want to learn about hosting, again you will have to read a lot on the net. Any specific questions, please ask here.

    As everyone says...start with a beginner package. I have used pair Networks for years and they are very good...however they do not have cPanel. As I beginner, I would suggest you look for hosting with cPanel and Fantastico...HostGator would be my choice if I were you...

    When you are searching for a web hosting company it can be a daunting task with so many web hosting companies out in the web universe today. Here are a few steps to consider before choosing a web hosting company.

    1.Space - How much disk space will you require/need?

    2.Bandwidth - Cover your needs and allow for expansion if needed.

    Budget – Set a realistic budget for yourself. How much are you willing to spend? Lowest price too highest. Being a little flexible on your price will give more hosting choices.

    3. Support - Do they provide at least 24/7 Support Desk? Support is very important, this is a must. You should have access to support 24 hours a day. Test the support desk. Choose anytime of the day or night and contact the support desk to test response times, ask any questions you might have. Do you need phone support or live chat support. ask these questions before you sign up with a web host.

    4. Don't forget to read the web hosting company TOS & privacy policy.

    5.Features - Ask yourself what features you would like to have. Do you want one-click-script installers like fantastico or installatron? Do you want a website builder? Do you require a money-back guarantee? What kind of uptime does the web host provide? Anything above 98&#37; is consider pretty good.

    6.Control Panels - Do you want Cpanel, DirectAdmin, or Plesk?

    Hope this helps you out in your journey to finding a web host. Thank you

    A typical starter plan has plenty of features for most sites. Pick someone that offers cPanel and Fantastico Delux. That will give you a lot of features and a lot of canned scripts to use.

    Best Regards,

    Actually, 98% uptime would be quite bad. It's almost 2/3 of a day of downtime per month. 99.9% uptime is more or less a common offer, and seen as acceptable for most sites. It still means 45 minutes of downtime per month. And many hosts are not able to reach this level.

    Also, there is a big difference between saying you have 99.9% uptime, and having a proven track record of 99.9% over some period of time.
