I'm planning to have my own website and i need some reccomendations from more experienced people. I mean a plan/offer suitable for a beginner and not very expensive.

i walked meanwhile through some offers and godaddy's basic looked interesting, but also have seen some not quite good comments like this godaddy review (http://www.softspecialist.com/software-magazine/Web-hosting-and-domain-names-for-your-website/GoDaddy-review-Why-pay-more-when-you-can-pay-even-more-Godaddy-domain-names-disclosed_4.htm) and lots of others. Are they justified? (from your experience, if possible)

godaddy is reliable. I use them and they are reliable. Unlike many others their most of the plans are monthly plans.

I've never used them, but the reviews I've read is their hosting isn't as good as their domain services. You may have a great service with most of the hosting providers, but its also possible that for whatever reason you'll have a bad experience too. Search for some reviews online as well before you sign up with any one service. Don't look at anything over a year old, because things change too fast for old reviews to mean a lot.

if you don't mind your site no being inaccessible 4 or 5 days out of each month then use a free host. they do that hoping you will get frustrated and signup for their paid hosting.

a great example is http://www.sitesled.com/ and http://www.50webs.com/ the absolute worst free hosts are freepages.com and tripod.com freepages.com won't allow the forms to work on your pages until after two months have passed and they only allow you to upload 50 files for free. you have to pay after that. :(

I've used both Bluehost and Hostmonster in the past and have no complaints whatsoever.

i've been with godaddy for almost 2 years, free hosting is decent, comes with databases & all but the ads keep your site from validating because of their anti-anti-ad-hack-hack, which is basically close a ton of tags after the stream has been flushed and then start a script block to download their ads.... it's frustrating

Webhostingpad.com has been working great for me. There are some $25.00 off coupons out there for them too. A lot of space, bandwidth, and plenty of features. Also, you can host unlimited domains from one account and have unlimited subdomains.

I just switched to Bluehost after being with ipower on a Windows platform for about 3-4 years. Bluehost is so much more better, I wish I had done this years ago. I have had nothing but trouble with ipower, I hate ipower, constant problems and their techs are inept... but I was on a Windows plan as well. Either way Bluehost has been helpful with my transition, and the speed has greatly improved, as well the price is much cheaper each month, the bandwidth is much greater, and the features of Unix and their ACP is awesome.
