    I'm hosted with Host Gator because they are a fast, safe, friendly host, which allows me to run all of my blogs/websites under one hosting account, at only $10/month.

    www.mediatemple.com because I'm not poor. I find it funny how people find the cheapest and least reliable hosting solutions yet claim they make so much money. Anyways, Mediatemple allows me to hit the front page of major sites without downtime which is priceless for me.

    it's funny how people will often look for the *cheapest* hosting, while they should be
    seeking the most *reliable* hosting! if you're running a serious business you cannot afford
    to have your web site go offline for very long.

    1. re: hosting -- never pay for a year (or more) in advance.

    2. re: registration -- use a registration service, don't let your web host register your domain name for you... makes moving hard!

    I use GoDaddy. I can pick up the phone at any second and speak with someone. I have never been screwed over by them. The only complaint I have is that they constantly send out that ICANN verify info for WHOIS. It's rather annoying.

    They are not the cheapest for hosting, but it's hard to beat their domain prices. The thing of it is, if you buy cheap, you will get CHEAP in return every time. that is a fact.

    i wouldn't. i'd use 'name cheap', they give you whois guard which stops much
    of the spam that comes from people looking up your 'whois' contact info.

    I got tired of shared hosting with a number of hosts.. several pretty good. But Plesk here, CPanel there, etc., etc., etc.

    So I added hosting to my portfolio and arbitrage dedicated servers from many companies, in many locations, each with multiple class C addresses and built my own hosting that I use for my own properties and my local whitehat customers hosting needs.

    I have:
    - server with OLM.com (self managed, cheap & great if you know how)
    a P4 2.4ghz, 2gigs ram, 5 IPs and 2.5 t-bytes with a 100mbit connect all to myself!

    - VPS with area51webhosting.com (the owner is helping me and some others out) ALL of the add-ons and then some, fully managed. I will eventually move everything to this host, and just sell space on the one above. I love that they have maxed out servers. all quads, dual dual-cores, or dual-quads, and all with 16 or 32 gig of RAM.

    - Jumpline VDS (works quite well, and gives me yet another IP) reasonable price, and helps me pass out some links to the other accounts

    - Dreamhost.com account (great for email, blogs, and hosting .mov files) does not handle Joomla as well as they claim, but WP blogs come up quickly, and you can host crazy amounts of video. they provide both flash and quicktime/darwin server access.

    - host1plus.com (heard about them in a thread here, good shared host) did this just for fun...at $60 a year? worth it to host a few more blogs on yet another IP (germany)

    this all keeps my 'empire' up and running:p...probably never need much more at this point:rolleyes:

    corenetworks.net, because for just a bit more than some shared hosting packages you can get a dedicated box!

    I host with HostMonster, never had a problem with them, never been down, everything I could want.

    By the way, you fail at naming threads, it should be "Whom Do You Host With". They are the object of the sentence, and as such it should be whom.

    lol :p

    I use:

    ~HostGator - Fast and Cheap and Easy - may begin to stop using them.
    ~A Small Orange - Much cheaper, still quite fast. Starting to use these guys more.
    ~000webhost - Free!

    Hostgator - cheap and reliable. There servers and hosting are never oversold and they are strict about server hoggers so you are always safe unless you get a couple of huge traffic spikes but most of my stuff wont experience that.
