I'm interested in finally finding a reliable and friendly webhost.
One of my biggest problems is that parts of my site (powered by Mambo Open Source CMS) will not work if Magic Quotes is enabled in the php.ini file. I need a webhost that either...
a) has Magic Quotes turned OFF, or
b) has Apache configured to allow Overrides.
Also, I'm currently building my website and this takes a lot of uploading, checking, re-uploading, checking, etc. As you can imagine, this can be very frustrating if server speed is slow. This is the case with my current host, startlogic.com. FTPing and previewing my site takes a long time.
I'm also looking for live customer support, unlimited (or very high #) of emails, high monthly bandwidth, and at least 500MB of space. Unfortunately, I don't have too much to spend. Probably under $10 a month. I'm willing to make SOME trade-offs, what I want more than anything is speed, reliability, and support.
