Web hosting

My contract with bluehost is about to expire,(has been a good experience, but) wondering if anyone has any recomendations about a really good host company they may be using. Disk storage, bandwidth, good support, fast loading of video. Or any stayaway warnings. I am going to shop around for the next few days.

I use yahoo small business to host and build my website. Check it out and see if it fits your needs.

I use pair.com Thier customer service is second to none, and that includes any customer service I am in contact with.

GoDaddy

I have several sites with godaddy.com - no problems so far. Good e-mail customer service, fast load times (both up and down), plenty features and very affordable.

I've had several sites hosted by maxipoint (http://w3.maxipointservers.net/web/home.html) over the past few years. I have experienced very little down time with this host. They offer 100mb of storage with unlimited bandwidth. The cost is only $3.95 a month with free domain registration. Their support is good and I usually get pretty fast responses from them.

Might be worth a look,

For 3 bucks you'll get 100GB of space at 1&1 which really blows 100mb away.

Be careful. I'm not targeting any particular webhost, but sometimes the customer service is worth the extra cost or lack of space. When you have a problem with your site you need a company that will be there for you. Check on the support and make sure before signing up with anyone.

You absolutely can't beat 1&1 for bandwidth and drive space. They're a great choice for hosting video.

However, they have things locked down tight, so while they support ASP.NET, I've run into a lot of restrictions for some of my more complex sites. I'm moving those over to a dedicated server, but still keeping my 1&1 account to host large files, and for the superb email spam filtering.

6 Days Left

I only have 6days left to decide. I have had great customer service at blue host, but a lower cost and unlimited band width at 1&1 is pretty tempting.

After looking at the 1&1 link that Patrick posted, looks like I'm probably going to be changing hosts. Looks like they offer most everything you need to run a website and for a better price than I am getting with my current host.

Thanks for the head-up Patrick,
Vance

Patrick is right, I've experimented with different hosting companies and 1and1 offers incredible value for the price. I also like ipowerweb since they offer 750 GB of bandwith, although they are pricier than 1and1, great support though.
