    I have been using hostgator and familiar with the hostgator platform. Just wondering what host is similar to hostgator or even better?

    Is bluehost cpanel similar to hostgator? Bluehost cpanel looks a bit "non standard", the header has more buttons and looks different.

    cPanel is cPanel dude.

    I have had great service from Hostwinds, if you want a recommendation.

    I almost never talk badly about a company or person publicly; if I have a beef with one I speak to them in private but in this case I think it appropriate to tell you to stay away from both HostGator and BlueHost; neither one will make your eyes light up.

    I keep hearing about hostwinds, but their thread has been abandoned after many complaints about sites being down and slow and it got closed by a mod hasn't it?

    Am I missing something?

    speed is pretty much the same

    Really not, cPanel is in any case supported by the hardware and there is a Big difference.

    Tried BlueHost for many sites (reseller plan also) and it's really good. With pingdom.com in over one year my sites were down for only 25 minutes!
    I don't want to speak about HostGator because I do not want to get angry.

    Have anyone here tried A small orange? It's part of the same group [EIG] but has only positive reviews all over web as it is said to run independently of the group.

    If they are part of EIG there is going to be some run over from their top brass... I would not be looking at that group.

    I'm trying Blue Angel Host right now and it is pretty quick for the little testing I am doing. I have a few reseller accounts and have my hands involved in something else related to hosting that is not ready for public consumption.

    For a small situation I would not be looking at Blue Angel or some other small entity like that and stay away from EIG and some of the others mentioned in this thread.

    I could actually tell you a horror story about one above in particular that cost me over 10 Thousand Dollars due to their ineptness.

    Nextpointhost.com is the best and most reliable hosting provider.
    They are reliable enough to have a deal with.
    Servers have no glitches.

    You dont need to worry. Almost every hosting site use similar cpanel. It cant be much different from site to site.
