I’m currently doing a tutorial on Web Development and I hit the part of the course where we are now making our site live. The instructor used Bluehost and said we can use any host we wont. So I thought I would do some research on Bluehost and see if they are any good.
I’ve read mixed reviews so far and someone recommended Digitial Ocean and Siteground. Both seemed very nice and reasonably priced. I know this is just a tutorial but I want to pick a good hosting site for the future of my projects.
This is where I am getting overwhelmed…
I have also been told about AWS and GitHub being a good host. So I went to check out AWS and got super overwehlmed. I had no idea what I was looking at. They offer so many different services, which one do I choose? This is the page where I was starting to stress out lol. Is AWS a good place to host your sites?
I’m not looking to be a full-time freelancer but I would eventually like to take on projects and build sites for companies, front-end, and back-end. Pictures, buttons, videos, etc, all on the site. Is that what AWS is for?
And yes, I will be doing my own research/learning about AWS but for now I would just like a simple explanation of the service: GitHub vs AWS
EDIT: Namecheap also offers hosting services, any thoughts on going with them?
