    Hi,

    I am due to change my ISP and I am thinking about moving to WordPress also.

    Does anyone have any ISP recommendations?

    Thanks

    Do you mean hosting rather than ISP (internet service provider)? The latter really depends on what is available where you live.

    There are the WordPress recommended web hosts.

    Personally, I prefer Hostgator. They're not the cheapest host out there, but I have had a good experience with them over the past several years for a number of clients. They provide cPanel access to a lot of things that come in handy with WordPress, and the PHP EZ-Config in cPanel is activated on their servers, which makes it easy to tweak a custom php.ini.

    You'll find a lot of hosts offer "1-click installs" of WordPress or quick installations via Fantastico. The installation of WordPress is so easy I recommend doing it manually using the handy guide. Not only is it good experience, but I find that it is often more trouble-free than the automated installers.

    Good luck, and welcome to WordPress.
