    Godaddy, Hostgator (Used both of them in the past, terrible experience they can't handle a small amount of traffic)
    Anyway, I rarely use Shared hostings nowadays, for the same price I get VPS in the cloud with 2 GB ram, 2 Virtual CPU, and 1 TB bandwidth, private IP.
    Cloud is the future.

    KVC Hosting, their servers are awful and always goes down and their support doesn't even help you solve issues. You can submit 10 tickets for the same issue and the issue is still not solved. What is worse is that they tell you that the issue is solved when it clearly hasn't.

    EIG group
    Namecheap
    Godaddy
    A2 Hosting
    etc
    etc

    basically any large hosting company if you need shared hosting. If you want dedicated server then it does not matter as they all are the same.

    Intersting because I'm using them for 2+ years. So far it looks best services of ~20 hosts I tryed. I'm using only unmanaged VPS btw.

    Regarding shared hosting, Namecheap hasn't let me down so far.

    I would stay away from bluehost, hostgator, and namecheap. You could have success with these hosting companies however there slow
