I use Hostmonster.com
They have a tech 24/7.  Any problems or questions, I can get online help.  They are always up and I have unlimited space.  I am attaching my stats so you can see what I have available. Worth considering. you can also register your domain with them.  you don't have to but can.

Well, that's as good as any and you're pretty close to me so it must work well for you.

Thanks for replying!

I use StableHost. Have been with them for quite some time. Never had a downtime event since I have been with them. They're cheap as well.

I would avoid the 'free' webhosts like 000webhost (and cousins) and even altervista.org -- they have limitations that may impact your ability to have a near-realtime updating website.  Choose a Linux/Apache hosting from one of the 'big names' like 1and1, godaddy, hostgator to have some durability to your site -- smaller ISPs can come and go suddenly (like e-rice) leaving you in the lurch.  You'll pay between $5 and $10/month for hosting on the 'big names'.

Ditto what Ken True said.  I use GoDaddy, and am (currently) very happy with them.  Any web hoster will have glitches on rare occasions, but GoDaddy's problems are sometimes of my own making.  My plan doesn't allow more than 7 concurrent FTP processes, but this isn't really a problem with Weather Display.
