I'm new to WordPress.org (but I do run a few wordpress.com blogs) and I am planning on setting up a new website to sell some data on a subscription basis. Right now, I'm trying to determine what would be the best web host for me.
The biggest considerations for me are:
(1) Simplicity of use with WordPress
I've looked at a number of hosts and I'm just not sure which ones are best for this. A lot of the WordPress recommended hosts have poor reviews. The hosts that I can find with good reviews --- it's unclear how simple it would be for a novice like me to set up my site that way.
Any recommendations for good hosts?
Also, anyone have any opinions on AN Hosting or Fat Cow for my needs? Both seem to have very good reviews, but I'm also looking for simplicity of use, and I don't know how they stack up on that attribute.
Thanks for any help.
