    I've been out of the admin game for a while. I'm looking for a host for my blog, possibly a forum, which I aim to get off the ground in the next couple of weeks.

    I'm planning to up the circulation of my weekly column to more newspapers and want to direct those readers to a blog. I'm planning on using Wordpress and expect to spend the next year building my readership. I'm hoping that I can add a forum, but that is a second-tier priority. I've considered Siteground, but I heard they may be rather limited in some aspects.

    What I need is essentially a cheap host that is reliable.

    Thanks

    How cheap is cheap for you? Cheap and reliable usually do not go hand in hand. Also what are your requirements in terms of space and bandwidth?

    I've read some reviews and HawkHost.com seems to fare well.

    I'm just beginning so I'm looking for the lower end. I'm building bottom up and have no idea if I will grow or not.
