What Web Host do you use/recommend?

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hi guys,
So I'm thinking about putting up a website for myself and it's come down to picking the Web Host. I've taken a look at most of the popular ones and I have some sort of idea of what I want to go with, but I'm just curious;

What Web Hosts do you guys use and/or recommend? Also, which ones do you suggest I should stay away from?

Thanks,
Alex

This is a great host based in Biggleswade...

I know the owner. Had my sites going for years with no hitches. He's on a 100mb connection and has limited customets so sites load near instant biggrin.gif

suggestion to stay away from "godaddy"
IMO after using them for awhile, horrible service, problems with overcharging my CC for their fees, not honoring promos tho it could just be my bad luck with them...

others will throw in some great recomemdations as i have resorted to self hosting and maybe use a friends service to help him get started smile.gif

What do you guys think about hostgator?

on the surface its looks good, competitive pricing and specs.. with shared hosting so cheap you can always test them out and see if you like them..
but i have never used them so i cant really say other than that so someone will come along who has smile.gif
