Well, I remember over a month ago - I switched hosts, I was with Hostgator, but guess what they do? Suspended my account for no reason. So, then, my friend Sean decided to move my server on over the Hostpolar and their support has been excellent.
Not only am I on a $5/month shared server, my community does 1k daily visits, with 15k daily pageviews - its called Virtualpetlist.com - and Hostpolar manages my community quite fine - there's no lag issues, and if there is one, its usually fixed in less than 20 minutes.
The owner of Hostpolar has email alerts set up with his Iphone, so he knows when someone sends him a support email - I've been with Hostpolar for over a month - and everyone tells me "Wow, cpvr, your site is fast!", that's because Hostpolar knows what its like for websites/businesses to have lag issues, and they don't like it either - so truthfully, do you recommend Hostpolar?
Yes, I do, they also sell Virtual private servers, reseller host, Dedicated servers - and their shared servers don't use apache, they use Litespeed - for their web servers.
So, if I can spend $5/month at Hostpolar - and stay fast, then I'm sure your sites will to.
