    Currently I have most of my domain names, and all hosting with G0daddy. After what happened today it looks like I will be looking for another Domain name registrar and hosting. So far it seems that it will be Namecheap for domains, and is a tossup between Bluehost and Hostgator for hosting. Are there better options than these out there?

    Also will it be esy to transfer everything over, and can it be done with 0 downtime?

    We use Godaddy, Verio, HostGator, and Hostnine.

    Verio sucks ass now. They used to rock.

    Host Gator is good.

    Hostnine is really good and their support rocks.

    Go with HostGator. BlueHost, I believe has their own hosting panel similar to GoDaddy. HostGator has cPanel. HostGator is much better in my opinion, though.

    You're already set with namecheap and hostgator but I would like to add justhost....they're so cheap and reliable. Main point is that don't go back to godaddy....

    Yeah this whole godaddy attack is affecting a lot of clients, really bad ATM. I'm using bluehost, and generally happy with them.

    I used Bluehost for years... but I have a better one to recommend now (I've switched over ALL my domains BECAUSE...) SEOhost.us offers thousands of dollars worth of premium WP tools and themes included with super affordable hosting. It's a great value.
