    I have a account with Hostgator, had it over 2 years. paying 9.95 a month.

    I got a 2nd hosting with Hybrid Hosting (http://www.hybrid-host.net) paid 25.00 for the year and a free domain name. Never the F%ck again will I do that.

    Site has been up and down so much its silly. Every site I had hosted there using wordpress was hacked by some dude. Never had that problem with Host Gator EVER.

    I just never will deal with a no name hosting in order to saved money. 30.00 per year is nice but you get what you pay for.

    IMO, when someone is offering unlimited master resellers for 9.99. It should throw up a few red flags.

    There are other benefits from going with a small host. For example we often help people with Wordpress issues, setting up scripts, DB settings etc. Price should never really be a determining factor when deciding on a webhost because the cost difference between an expensive host and a cheap one is mere dollars.

    We used Just Host, and they suck, And they aren't small or really cheap, so it all just depends on the company...
