    You should list your requirements for a hosting company before looking for one, then look for those that fits your needs. It will be a lot faster and easier to choose. Don't forget to look for coupons that are lurking around, it can save you some $$

    i don't know,probably you should search for old,reputable hosting companies.i am with hostgator since 2007 and i am very happy with them,never had a single issue,i was looking over my tickets last days and i have no more than 10 tickets til 2007 and most of them are about some upgrates i asked over the years.

    Anyone but Hostgator lol.

    If you're just looking to host a basic site, Hostwinds are the best that I've been with so far.
