If you are looking for a cost-effective web hosting service with relatively good resources, you might want to consider Bluehost as an option. This WordPress blog is hosted on Bluehost's VPS server.
Most especially, if you sign up for Bluehost's Shared Hosting plan by clicking on this referral link, you will be able to use it starting from as low as USD2.95/month (with 1USD additional discount per month) and I will get some commission.
