    Hi Guys,
    I have been using BigRock domain and hosting provider since last 2 years and have worst experience when it comes to customer support.
    Can anyone suggest me better service provider..? Specially in case of Hosting.

    Thanks in advance...:)

    I use godaddy for finding new domains and expireddomains.net for expired domains and use justhost and hostgator as classy hosting service.

    If you want good service, Go for Hostgator.

    I am using hostgator, no issue at all.

    Go with Godaddy they are running with new package for $1 per month, but you need to signup for the entire year, it cost me 720 INR which is a fair deal and support is also great

    Domain registrar:

    Namecheap - AMAZING customer support via live chat. Free WHOis protection only for the 1st year
    NameSilo - Cheaper than Namecheap plus free WHOis protection forever
    Internetbs - Same advantages as NameSilo


    Web hosting:

    MDDHosting - Read a genuine review here: http://techtage.com/mddhosting-review/
    StableHost - Cheaper than MDDHosting. I use them. They're GREAT. Read a genuine review by the same guy as above here: http://techtage.com/stablehost-review/

    I would suggest you to go with either iPage and Fatcow for hosting needs. I love their prices + 24/7 live chat support.

    Same for domain registrars.
    For hosting, my honest vote goes to Servikus, they have a BST here. Awesome and really friendly support.
    Servinio also has a good reputation.

    +1 for stablehost.
    Another provider that never gets mentioned on BHW is mddhosting.
    They are very good too.
    Much loved on webhostingtalk!

    It all depends on your traffic, if you go with godaddy and hostgator and your traffic is high you will have problems with load balancers.
    I recommend PaaS, depending on the magnitude of your apps. Pagodabox is great, DigitalOcean, etc.
    And for domains, OpenSRS give you free privacy domain and low costs.
    hope this helps ;)

    Domain: namecheap, namesilo; and 1&1, networksolution always has cheap domain promotion, but personally I do not recommend them.

    Hosting: Stablehost with 2 years, no problem at all. Hostgator and hawkhost with normal low traffic sites are OK.

    Cloud vps hosting, vultr is good with their price, although there are pretty much bad reviews about them, I have 2 running vps there, 1 years no problem. Linode is also a good choice.
