    Right now its Hosterbox,
    Host gator
    and I used hawkhost for less then a month after being very very disapointed.

    Hostgator was good and I would of stayed with them, there support is good but it would just piss me off at times when I would ask something to there support team wait an hour get a cookie cutter responce like "have you tied this...?" I would say yes, then wait another hour only to get some different agent asking me the same thing.

    Then I saw an add for Hosterbox, talked with a rep on there chat and I moved because it was cheaper for more disk space, (not that unlimited BS lol) there support members usually follow you in the tickets so you don't have to repeat and I haven't had any downtime since I have been with them.

    Finally Hawkhost, worst experience I have ever had with a web host, i signed up received my account info after 6 hours... Logged in only to find that I was logged out because the server crashed. The server kept crashing for the entire time I was there support would take them a few hours just to get back to me so I just left.

    I know that my review here is a bit long but I hope its usefull to other members.

    I came across hosterbox.com but it seems sketchy, a lot of the reviews I found of them online seem like there fake. Also I don't think its a registered business, even there physical address registered to there domain does not exist.

    I would stay away from them.

    Hostgator is ok, if you stay on shared hosting. But don't move to reseller one. It looks like they rent it from somebody else.

    I have used 6 different hosts before i.e hostgator,justhost, hostwinds ,hosterbox, compitenthosting and Hostamus.com.

    Now only 4 left i.e. justhost,hosterbox,compitenthosting and Hostamus.com and all 4 are good.

    I have been used Dollar2Host, Silicon House and now using BlueHost. Therefore based on Reliability, Uptime, Support and Price BlueHost is the best for me. I am using it since last one year and still now did not face any problem from sever side or support. It is best for me.

    I don't know the best but I would like you to stay away from just host. I only have 3 sites there and only one is finished; it gets not more than 20 hits per day and they shut me down.

    iPage.com is extremely cheap. Its $3.50 deal (after discount price) is one of the cheapest shared hosting deals you ever found online; and secondly, the web host is especially attractive to those who want a green hosting.

    Not sure, I haven't had any bad experience with them and I wrote a review for them on a site. I also talked with there owner Samuel and they are registered in Canada. Its a Canadian business.

    One Best Hosting, works good for me.
    They don't let me face downtime and their servers are superb.
