Hosting & domain questions..

Question

Hi

I have some plans with a friend for a new website for selling our 3D modelling services and saw that https://uk.godaddy.com/hosting offer some good services. 

We are not very sure which direction should we go in terms of hosting and plan and here we'll need your support. We hope to have a very-custom website (by using their drag & drop tools) to present in the most professional way our portfolio. 

We have these 2 options. Our focus is presenting our work and the contact form, nothing fancy. 

1. https://uk.godaddy.com/hosting/web-hosting

2. https://uk.godaddy.com/hosting/wordpress-hosting

What do you think?

The general subject of "web hosting" probably has almost as much snake oil as "SEO"

 

In those areas, Google searchs are almost certainly destined to fail. Every possible thing you could think to search for has been already anticipated by the snake oil industry. "Reviews of web hosting" "top web hosters" and a million variations will produce garbage results.

 

One site (and seriously ONLY that one site) in my experience has very strict anti-snake-oil restrictions - "Web Hosting Talk" which is a forum: http://www.webhostingtalk.com

 

Asking here at Neowin, should also avoid snake oil.

 

Although more expensive, the top Cloud providers will always be trustworthy:

All that being said, my only recollection of GoDaddy was being unresponsive to any needs that did not fit their cookie-cutter approach.

 

Your current requirements appear to be minimal and easily handled by static delivery packages such as Gatsby or Hugo etc...

 

https://www.gatsbyjs.org

https://github.com/gatsbyjs/gatsby

 

https://gohugo.io

https://github.com/gohugoio/hugo

 

Most likely, depending on your exact situation, you can even deploy at zero cost per month to sites like Zeit:

Note that Gatsby/Zeit (and many other options) enables you to use a full React based site that can do just about anything at zero or low cost but "with great power comes great responsibility" so there is a learning curve there... Welcome to the modern age!
