    Can anybody recommend me any good webhosting packages?
    I'm looking at using Wordpress, so the easy install thing would be good.
    Also, if I can get a free domain or two in it, that'd be really helpful.

    I have a second site and i just wanted a cheapy package, went on to ebay and got 2years unlimited with a domain for £9.99 - once click Wordpress installation and haven't had a single down time.

    These guys: Web Hosting - 5 YEARS for the PRICE of ONE | eBay

    Yeh, yeh you get what you pay for but it isn't for my main site so I wasn't so concerned but I have to say top notch service.

    Yeah I've bought a package through ebay before, and the company went pop.

    But, I've also used these before for another website and it's still functional.

    Is there a huge difference between Windows and Linux servers? What are the advantages and disadvantages?

    If you need .asp scripts, SQL server or Access then you’ll have to get a Windows server, if not just go with Linux every time. I’m no techie though so maybe someone will be along with a better answer!

    The issue I have with the eBay host is it says in the feedback they don't allow you multiple domains to point at their site.

    Whats your main site anyway Penguin?

    What package would you say was suitable for a design startup business?

    just go for the basic one, it's £17 per year there or £29 if you pay for two years.

    Trust me, i recommend them for a reason, they're very good, you'll see ;)

    Try hosts with 1-Click

    Try web hosts that support 1-click Wordpress install. I personally have good experience with 1and1 and namesco and MT(Media temple). Media temple is expensive but their support is super. I prefer 1and1 as they are europe based and provide good support and extra domains as well.

    I use dream hosting, they've recently increased their prices to 17.99 per year but you can have upto 5 domains and their client support is exceptionally good. I've used them for years.
