OPINION: Web Hosting, who do you recommend?

Posted 26 August 2010 - 01:53 PM

Well, currently I'm using byethost for two of my domains but have decided it's time to make a switch. Nothing against byethost, they can just be a little slower than I'd like at times. So, who do you recommend I use for hosting? I've used GoDaddy in the past and really do not like it at all, but if it's your host of choice feel free to say so and explain why.

My price range at the moment is under $10 USD a month.

With hosting, time and time again it has come down to getting what ive paid for.

Hosts I reccomend,

MediaTemple (not cloud service, it can run slow).
Clook VPS.

Yeah, see I'd looked into MediaTemple due to it being highly recommended by tutsplus but I'm really not trying to pay 20 bucks a month.

I've been using Bluehost for a few years to host a couple of my PHP sites. Close to no downtime and very speedy tech service. Fair prices as well. Something like $7/mo.

Not sure exactly how it compares to things like Godaddy. Never had any reason to test anything else :)

Quite attractive product here: http://www.servage.net

There exist coupons - just search for it with google "servage coupon" or something... I think I used "MEGA" ...

My favorite by far is Dreamhost. I've also used Bluehost for several sites and have no complaints - if you don't need a whole lot why pay for it?

Ditto. I currently host 2 sites with them (through I have worked on 4 that have used their hosting) and haven't had any problems with them. They give everything they say they do (at least that I have used) and have a fairly modest pricing from what I have seen.

Depends on your sites of course maybe if you have to much visitors it's better to rent a vps. But for shared webhosting I would recommend HostGator. I have a shared hosting of the lowest plans and got 2 clients who host a dedicated server and a shared hosting (baby plan) on hostgator and no complains.
