    Host it yourself.

    You can download it free and use it on your own servers.

    Cheap and reliable don't necessarily go hand in hand - especially with hosting.

    I prefer to host myself. Some of the plugins I run will not run on wordpress.com. It is however the easiest, quickest and cheapest way to host a wordpress site.

    I use Vidahost (Affiliate link: http://my.vidahost.com/aff.php?aff=1687 ), and use their cloud which has been very good for me. They have had a few little issues (mainly with email), but they tend to credit me a months fee's if I complain. Their shared web hosting is pretty cheap, but I've not experience on the shared stuff.

    CSMedia are quite popular round these parts, but I have never used them.

    Thanks all.
    Hosting myself would be great but I don't have the equipment to do so, plus wouldn't electric price add up?
    vidahost looks good, i will look more into them.
    https://www.tsohost.com/product/web-hosting seem releativly good price and good reviews to. Not sure if anyone here has used them?

    We use CS New Media...they have been great and very reasonably priced (I won't call it cheap as that has negative connotations) with excellent service!*


    *no I don't get any pay back from this recommendation

    Digital Ocean might be worth a look. $5 per month, install wordpress yourself.

    Hi,

    I can probably help you out in terms of Linux Based Web Hosting, But you could also look at hosting a FREE Website on Windows Azure! :-)
