Does anyone here have Hostgator (or know someone who does)? What's your take on it? Worth recommending? or not?

I've never even heard of them, so I couldn't tell you if they're good or not.

But Dreamhost would be my rec for a website http://dreamhost.com/

I used them a couple of years ago. No complaints.

But if I was making a website right now, I would definitely use A Small Orange instead. They have super-small packages for people who get like 10 visits to their site a year (and my site would probably only get that many!).

Gotcha! :) Well, my hostgator site didn't attract too many visits either, so definitely I can't say how well Host Gator will handle large requests.

Oh, and I am thinking about making a personal website to establish my 'brand.' I can understand css and html but have never made a website before. Would you recommend using a basic Wordpress or Joomla template to get started? Is Dreamweaver something useful to purchase/use as well once I get bored with having a basic website template?

Thanks for this great advice! I am so excited to have a personal website! :) I plan on using it to establish my "brand" and make it easier for recruiters when they google me to find good things. >.>; :)

I like BlueHost a lot. Been with them for years and no issues, plus they have user-friendly installs of many basic web... dohickeys (shut up, brain no worky), like various blog and e-commerce software. Of course, one of my brothers is a supervisor tech support guy for them, so if I have any real issues I have an in. Still, I haven't had any issues yet.
