Every second, the number of webmasters and bloggers increase way more than the actual number of self-owned and run websites. There is still a major chunk of the blogosphere growing due to free web or blog hosting. But with the current rapidly growing network of web hosting service providers that provide competitive prices for various service level plans, the trend will surely change as more bloggers switch from free blogging software to self-run portal.
In order to select the web hosting for your website or blog, you first need to know your target audience and know the purpose of your own blog. Is it personal or commercial? Is it long term or short term? Is it going to be static or dynamic in terms on content? Is it image-intensive or more readable? Essentially what is the disk space and bandwidth you require? Ask yourself as many broad-based questions as you can that will help you further narrow your choices. Once you are done with identifying your own needs, choosing the best web hosting plan from amongst the innumerable options available online will be quite a task.
For WordPress users, Web Hosting Sleuth makes it easy by investigating WordPress web hosting service providers such as GoDaddy, Bluehost, Hostgator, Marblehost, Dot 5, FatCow, IPowerWeb, Dreamhost, Site 5, HostMonster, Apollo, Easy CGI, HawkHost, eXmasters, TMZhosting, etc. Check informative articles and reviews on dedicated and shared hosting, the latest developments in blog hosting, and also how to install or set up your own Content Management System.

If you are thinking of starting your own blog, there are a few requisites that one needs to consider before taking the plunge into the big bad blogosphere. While you will spend a considerable amount of time researching the various options out there in terms of blogging ware and free plugins, the selection of a web hosting should be the least of your worries if you choose to go with WordPress, thanks to the reviews on WordPress Hosts at WebHostingSearch.com
Unlike the reviews on cheap dedicated hosting and java hosting, the WordPress hosting focuses on the niche that is fast becoming the norm among bloggers and new web entrepreneurs alike. WordPress hosting review sorts the reviews and presents it in a format that is easy to understand and choose from. The reviews are sorted by default with the best featured package on top and run 4 pages long. Additionally, the user can sort this information based on monthly price, disk space, data transfer and the number of add on domains that could be hosted on a certain package.
You can click the review link and you can get details like the server location, ratings, pros and cons and much more. The ratings are weighted average of factors such as support response time, support quality, server uptime, server response time, features and control panel usability. You can read user testimonials too. Users are requested to share their experience with the listed web hosting services and made available for everyone to read. The advanced feature tab that is available on top of the review give you the full scope of the services offered and is mostly a tool used by advanced users. For first timer and pros’ alike, WP hosting reviews is good place to start all your future projects.

As announced this morning, wpSnap and our blog were updated using the latest in code and CSS. Read about the announcement here. The site is best viewed using a standard compliant browser such as Firefox and screen resolution of 1024px or higher. Users using IE 6 or lower will experience some issues initially, we do however plan on adding IE (versions 6 and lower) specific fixes shortly. Users with below 1024px screen resolution, there is not much we can do there.

As you may have noticed, we are missing a few blog posts (nothing significant) and some comments as a result of a recent database issue which is being investigated. Just so you are warned, multi-author WordPress install such as our own site should not be running version 2.5 for the reason we all have come to know as CVE 2008 1930. Upgrading to version 2.5.1 now will save you a lot of hassle, trust me us this.
We believe a recent attack on our site due to that WordPress vulnerability was responsible for the issues we encountered lately. We assure you that we have taken all the steps necessary to rectify it. Although the BBPress powered WP News Forum was linked, we were able to restore all the fields and posts without any loss of data.
Here are some symptoms and diagnosis for the issue:
We will post a detailed step by step correction process once we confirm the issue was indeed related. Although having a backup of your database from pre-2.5 might help, we feel it can be accomplished without any backup.
Sunny has a post detailing some WordPress 2.5 troubleshooting tips!

As you may have noticed, we are behind in updating these pages. Without making any excuses, we will strive to bring the pending themes to current as quickly as possible. To facilitate it, we decided to preview 12 themes in the WP Themes section instead of the usual 6. This will remain in its current state until we are able to bring the pending themes to zero (or close to).
Thanks for you patience, a special thanks to our friends who are volunteering to help us out and continued support of WP Snap!

Our efforts would be to update the “New WordPress Themes” section daily.
We will try to have 6 different contributor’s themes on each page. For example: If you upload three themes at one time, one of your theme will show up on the front page on the first day, and the remaining themes you upload will be carried forward to the following days. This will ensure maximum front page exposure to every contributor.
Unlike in the past, at least one of the link from each post will have a “do follow” to the theme author’s site.
Please note that your demo, or URI link(s) must include target=”_blank”
Please also limit the size of the theme image to 400px by 300px
