Setting up website for a friend

Hi,

I'm creating a website for a friend, I should be ok with creating the site but not too sure which web host to go with.

Just wondered if any of you have good/bad experiences with hosts and also if the host you select affects your search position in any way.

Thanks for any help as not done this before.

Wordpress is the place to be. Better features and Google loves it.

I've used Heart Internet for a number of websites. I have had virtually no problems and their support has been quick, efficient and helpful when I've needed it.

The website itself should be fairly basic, with maybe a few pages. It's probably going to need a simple database to read from so I'd need the host to provide some minimal database storage.

Thanks for the advice - I'll take a look and read up a little more.

I should probably add that I need a decent HTML5 editor - have tried a few google searches but it's hard to know whats good and what isn't.

Does anyone know of any good HTML5 editors that are free?

I use .Net at work but don;t have this at home so looking for freeware.

Thanks.

Just remembered I can use my work's MSDN license at home - so I should be able to install Visual Studio 2012 and use that to build the site.

Don't forget you can get the express edition of visual studio from Microsoft for free, just go to here

Thanks nahosting - I've installed the full version but is good advice for anyone needing freeware. Do you have any recommendations for a web host?

Sorry Mort105 but I can't help there, against forum rules. I hope you find a reliable one. Cheers.

There are plenty of reliable hosting companies out there. My recomendation, based purely on personal experience is Heart Internet, but as I say, there are others.
