Best Value Web Hosting

Hey guys, I am looking for a good value and reasonably reliable web hosting service for the long-run. I am starting my first blog, so having the flexibility to implement several sites in the future would be beneficial.

Most web hosting services are cheap in the first year but cost significantly more thereafter so I am looking for a service that is cost-effective for the long haul.

I know there are a few members here that offer free web hosting over at the Freebies forum, but it's not what I am looking for. Thanks!

Are you just gonna use wordpress for your blog? Why not just host it with wordpress directly?

less chance of wordpress being hacked and exploited, also more reliable

if you are hosting on your own, you need to make sure your theme/plugins are up to date

Awesome! Thanks! I'm completely new to the game.

Any other helpful tips?

Honestly, i would just start with the free hosting first. Then if you see yourself putting lots of time in it, then proceed with upgrading to a paid hosting.

I know so many people just dropped off after getting it started.
