    I have used liquidweb in the past but it was a long time ago when I didn't know much about the internet.

    I will start a site that will have about 8 million impresion a month(is an estimate), and I want a cheap and good hosting because I don't have money. Godaddy shared isn't good, I had a small site 2000 views a day and the site was all ways down because the server couldn't handle more that 50 simultaneous connection on Apache.

    I spoked with liquidweb and they don't have this problem, the server will be down only because of the load at a certain time.

    The shared Liquidweb standard hosting costs $14.95 with 60GB bandwidth.

    Hostgator has "unlimited" bandwidth I don't know haw may simultaneous connection they allow, the shared Business costs $12.95

    I don't what to choose Liquidweb or Hostgator? What do you think?

    I used a VPS on liquid web and found it went down anytime I had a story go popular on Digg or StumbleUpon. Think it cost about $80 a month. Despite reassuring me that their VPS was designed for spikes in traffic they constantly tried to upsell me a dedicated server when the site went down because of the traffic levels. This was about 18 months ago so they might be better now.

    I've sinced moved the site onto MediaTemple gridserver and haven't had any problems with them at all.

    HostGator is alright, the support is slow though.

    Horrible I lost an expired domain PR1 because those fat incompetents couldn't set my account in 3 hours. Then a viagra spamer took that domain, after another hour they managed to register another domain. in the time they had scratched their ass, that spamer uploaded 2 versions of the site. I think that the support guy registered the domain because in 3 hours I sent him several tickets and he didn't responded. Luckily I didn't gave him a PR3 domain to register

    I've never had any problems with siteground. They are cheap and I like their services.

    I'd suggest you to try HostGator or DreamHost. I have personally used both, and would highly recommend them. They are the best in the market.

    I have read a lot of positive reviews about liquid web however not sure abt how good their support is.

    I'm happy with them so far. I've got a couple VPS setups with them (I've had them for a couple years) and don't really have any troubles to report.

    uhm, well I'd recommend you NOT go with HostGator, but hey that's just me. Go with LW, but do realize 60GB of bandwidth goes quick.
