Can I choose another web host?

I'm interested in using another web hosting service. Will I have problems following this course? I'm not really familiar with wordpress as of the moment so I don't have much idea what are differences between these web hosting services.

Very little difference, your web host may have a different software on the backend, although many use cPanel so it may look very much the same. Practicality wise, hosts will function the same.

as a side note, most hosting sites will/should have tutorials to use their software, you can follow the course just fine, you might need to make adjustments per your hosting company.

Thank you guys! I'm considering going with godaddy. Do you have any idea about the host?

Do NOT use godaddy!!! They are horrible, use siteground or blue rocket, media temple, whatever else, it's a horrible interface, and it's very difficult to use.

At work we're using: http://www.cloudaccess.net

They're not bad at all, and the interface is decent, although I think it's custom. I know it's not cPanel or Plesk, which is okay.
