For Multiple Domains Hostgator or Godaddy

Hello,

I currently have a website hosted by GoDaddy, but most people on this forum seem to prefer Hostgator.

Godaddy's domains are a little bit cheaper but Hostgator seems to work better with WordPress.

I want to start a new site since I now realize now that the first one is not within a profitable niche.

Which one of the two is better (Hostgator or GoDaddy) if you're eventually planning to have multiple domains using WordPress?

I'm not clear about the advantages of one domain vs multiple sub domains.

At the beginning, should I just concentrate on starting a domain, and keep adding directories as sub domains instead of getting new domains?

Thanks,

I always recommend Hostgator because I think they offer excellent customer service and uptime for a very reasonable price. If you want you can buy a domain name at Godaddy and then use Hostgator for hosting your site.

Regarding sub-domain vs new domains - it's best to have a new domain name for each topic or niche, otherwise Google gets confused as to what your site is about.

What Mark recommends is actually what I do. I am very comfortable buying domains from Godaddy but their hosting does not match with Hostgator's. So I have my hosting with Hostgator and I buy my domains from Godaddy.

Yep, I'm the same as Renato and Mark. Godaddy are great for domains but hostgator are great hosts. I've got a dedicated server and a shared server and they've never let me down.

Don't get too hung up on this stuff though, just go sign up with hostgator and focus on getting some sales :)

Griser12,

You will love godaddy's admin area. I mean it's pretty neat. They don't have cpanel in their hosting so it makes them the ugly duckling as compared to the rest of the beautiful swans out there. LOL That is the reason why I went with HG.

Just buy a domain from Godaddy. You will have a Godaddy account where you can manage your domain. You will have to change the DNS and point it to your hosting account. The DNS from your hosting will be given to you y Hostgator once you sign up for a hosting account.
