I recently made the decision to relocate to Switzerland, and I would like to start a blog about my experience. I already registered my domain name so the next step is to find a place that will host my blog. Are there any recommendations for a host? I'm looking for unbiased information. Whenever I search google for a wordpress host, or reviews about worspress hosts, all I come across are other peoples blogs, and they're trying to get me to sign up with their host so they can earn commission on the referral.

My domain name is registered with GoDaddy. I'm thinking about signing up for their Economy wordpress hosting plan, 12 months at $3.99/month. My only concern is they only guarantee 99.9% uptime, which is kind of poor. I've also looked at Amazon EC2. Should I just start with a free instance of EC2 and grow from there?

  Just curious - what kind of uptime do you consider not poor?

Also, for a blog, why would 99.9% be a problem?

GoDaddy economy wordpress is quite reliable. I have used it for numerous sites. It can be slow, though.

I prefer using 1and1.com + Cloudfront.net (CDN) for wordpress blog hosting.

99.9% uptime. That's not poor by any set of benchmarking. In fact nothing beats GoDaddy. It has got excellent customer support.
