Like many of you I simply wanted a good, reliable webhosting for a fair price. I quickly realized if you go for those $3.95 accounts from the gators or monsters sites, you will be eaten up. Eaten up by having downtime, slow sites, and poor service.
So I've tried www.HummingbirdHosting.com and I'm very happy. This is not some fly-by-night webhost. Hummingbirdhosting has been in business for years, and I've had several sites there for over 5 years! I've never been down for more than a few hours since I've started with them. My site speed has been nothing but fast, and my very important vBulletin board has been running great, even during peak period.
Reseller hosting comes with WHM for easy account set-up and manageability.
Service is always quick with knowledgable reps. The price is very fair. If you go for cheap, you will end up paying more in wasted time and time transferring to a new host every few months.
