There are a few pillars you need in order to build a sustainable, long-term online business.
A good webhost is one of them.

I want to say,
[su_pullquote]A webhost can make or break you.[/su_pullquote]
But for most of us, especially when we're starting out, that's really not true.
Then you'll wish you had gone with the better webhost 🙂
But you don't really need an all “bells and whistles” webhost until your traffic warrants it. And if you pick a good one out to start, you may be able to just buy more horsepower if and when you need it.
That's kinda cool.
There are 2 webhosts that I stand by. And I have accounts at both. One lets you start out slow, build up over time, and pay more as you need more power and features.
The other is a thoroughbred out of the gate. Oh, you can pay more as your needs grow, but you start out at step 10.

Either way, check them out:
As I said, I like them both. If I were just starting out, I'd go with the first option and scale up as my traffic rose.
UPDATE: A2 Hosting just introduced their new “Build your own VPS” plans starting at $5 per month – pretty cool! Just add the services you need to customize.
(By the way, I love Namecheap for domain registrations but not for hosting.)
