I use and like Link hidden: Login to view. I think it is worth the money to help manage sales, inventory and sales reports to see what is selling and what isn't.

Im currently using a 30 day trial at instantestore.com and so for things look pretty good. You can have custom design done for real cheap to. I was trying homestead.com but I thought that It wasnt what I was looking for.

I use more of the traditional approach. First I get a host provider and then load in and build my site.

For my host, I use Link hidden: Login to view because I get unlimited SQL databases, unlimited domains, and unlimited storage space :) That's important for me since I am also a photographer.

Anyways, I like CRE Loaded for my shopping cart. It seems very easy to set up. If you have trouble installing it, there are many people out there that will get it done for you.

You can look at my 'work in progress' site which I hope to have up in a few more weeks at Link hidden: Login to view

Just a word of warning on 'unlimited' anything deals in hosting: they don't exist. If you think about it logically, storage is very very cheap in this day and age, but it isn't infinite. Any given webhost only has access to so many servers and so much drive space. It is not possible for them to offer unlimited bandwidth or storage, and I would be careful of any host that claims otherwise, even a big outfit like Hostgator.

I completely disagree and I think your word of warning is a little alarmist.

For 99.9% of the people out there looking to put their website up on a managed host, the 'unlimited' offerings are more then enough.

Yes, I only get 99,999 SQL databases, which should be enough. I also get unlimited Bandwidth usage...sure, there is probably a limit somewhere, but I will never reach it. Yep...I only get 99,999 domains...!!

So I must disagree with you...they do exist. Its like splitting hairs. Sure, there is a limit (99,999 SQL Data Bases, 99,999 domains, etc), and as far as mentioned, 99.9% of the users out there, that is sufficient to be considered unlimited.

Anything beyond that, and someone is by that time owning their own IP address and their own servers and leasing bandwidth from a local wholesale BW provider.

MY word of warning is this....don't get a host provider that 'JUST MEETS YOUR NEEDS' get something that you can for sure grow into so that you are not limited later on.

And yes, Hostgater is very inexpensive... For the amount of money it cost me each month, I am getting a LOT of stuff. Also, I usually evaluate my host providers every 1 to 2 years. By that time, things have changed so much I can usually get an even better deal.

I understand that in most cases it is sufficient. I own a hosting company myself and am well familiarised with that market (notice I am not spamming my link or trying to down my competition, just making a point that many people don't seem to get.) We offer 1GB storage and virtually no one, I mean seriously -- maybe 20% of our clients -- ever hit that limit.

But I'm not trying to be alarmist, I am stating a fact: you will not get unlimited hosting. Check out any sizable webmaster forum like DNForum, DigitalPoint etc. and you'll see endless stories of people who bought 'unlimited' hosting then had their accounts suspended.

I'm glad that you exercise such a high level of due diligence in your shopping; my post is aimed more generally at people who are shopping, especially shopping around for the first time. Lots of silly offers get put up in the hosting business, including 'unlimited' storage/bandwidth accounts, and a lot of consumers don't know any better.
