Currently, that Blogger.com powered website is hosted free of charge by Blogger. Going down this route means no direct access to the web servers hosting his blog/website. But if ever he need direct access to the web servers such as for certain database operations, he will have to think of self-hosting his website which means the need to find a reliable web host at reasonable cost.
Fortunately there are websites offering web host rating making the task of selecting web host slightly easier. The more consistent the ratings, the more confidence we should have of their ratings. Below is a comparison between 2 web host rating websites:
|4||Web Hosting Pad||WebHostingPad|
We can see that the ratings are fairly consistent. And similarly in the 2 sidebars, there are similarly links to different ratings according to different purposes or criteria such as Best Blog Hosting and Best Forum Hosting, something (forum) I am considering for this blog itself.
