    Leaving Godaddy, Where to now?

    Hey obviously I'm looking to change from GoDaddy, but there are so many hosting companies I'm not sure who to go with. I did a search but couldn't find a definitive answer.

    I want to have 2 small business websites hosted, one will be a brochure style website and the other a blog. The first will probably be done in RubyonRails and the second in Wordpress.

    I've been recommended iWeb and Site5, can anyone comment on these? Or perhaps recommend better options?

    Thanks a bunch.

    I've seen people on twitter moving from Godaddy to Bluehost or Hostgator. Seem to be the popular choices.

    That's essentially trading a dog turd for a cat turd. Still turds.
    Jumping from unlimited host to unlimited host isn't the solution to finding a better host.

    That's because both advertise everywhere, burning their logo and name into the brains of those customers.

    For some reason, I thought they did. Nevermind then.

    I assumed OP is moving due to the elephant affair , not resource limitations.

    babyj18777, do you actually need Windows hosting? For Wordpress and RoR I'd suggest Linux.

    If you need Windows, Hostnexus is a reliable provider that I can recommend.

    After 12-15 DOGS it worked for me!

    Worst one (including THIEVES) 1and1.com (both as registrar AND hosting!)

    Now (after about 10 years 'of trying') I'm with hostrocket hosting and namecheap registrars.

    What 'do you' recommend in the search for a good hosting co.?

    By searching "top hosting companies" I get ALL the dogs I've gone through and my present host (the best 'up 'til now' [knock on wood] is not even listed.

    Go figure!

    Shared or VPS?
    There are more good Windows VPS providers than shared ones.

    On my list of Windows suggestions, you'd want to look at somebody like EuroVPS for shared.
    There's also Coolwin Hosting, to a lesser extent.
    For VPS, there are several more options.

    Know that Windows isn't cheap hosting -- not unless you want unlimited junk hosts.

    IMO you should look for linux hosting to host Wordpress and php sites.

    I would've If I were still with that godaddy.com thieve.

    I dumped the godaddy douche bags, scumbag, thieves, scum-of-the-earth about ten years ago!

    What peeves me off is that Google is a godaddy.com reseller, freaking google IDIOTS! SEE: http://www.ripoffreport.com/Search/godaddy_com.aspx

    I would prefer dealing with some quiet and small host offering good service than giant offering it poor. Look through the reviews about the hosts which may be not that popular, but have reliable service offered
