    Personality...

    or

    In order: Load times, unlimited domains, unlimited harddrive (And a Cpanel to quick install WP, which is probably tied for first.)



    EDIT. And isn't Godaddy.

    Edit Edit: Yeah uptime as well, good call Chrisss.

    Uptime, speed and a host that knows what they are doing.

    Am a developer so for me things that matters most are:-

    Support for all Addons without raising a ticket every time for each of them..example curl,xmlrpc,soap etc

    Excellent and 24*7 chat support :) (Email support is okay if TAT is at max an hour)

    obviously everything should be unlimited :)

    Live chat 24/7 or 24/7 toll free phone support?

    Which would you pick? I have been comparing many different hosting companies to see key differences and to see what clients really want out of their hosting company.

    Thanks for all of the great responses! Very helpful indeed!

    I agree with you there. Easier for a tech. to understand than trying to tell them over the phone.

    Who do you host through if you don't mind me asking? This question is open for anyone to answer.

    Appreciate the responses!

    This thread is very very helpful to me as a web host

    I am going to be putting some plans into action to help emphasize how much we care about speed, and to ensure that we have monitors in place not only for uptime, but for speed as well

    Thanks for making this thread very very helpful
