    Your local area is a good place to start as it will be less competitive.

    I don't consider WHT as good place to find customers. You can find a hosting company though

    Quick answer? Sorry, there really isn't one. There is no "best place to advertise". There is only the "best place for you" to advertise. Do you cater to a niche market? Low price plans? high end packages? You need to define your target market and persue advertising opportunities to exploit that.
    If you want to target programmers, advertise on sites that are dedicated to programmers. If you want to target everything for a buck webmasters, well, you're already at WHT, subscribe for a leads membership. j/k
    Start by getting your site listed in the numerous host directories, most are free. See which ones send hits your way, and buy a text link or banner spot on those.
    Google adwords for related keywords works good, but stay away from ones like webhosting, hosting, and the like uness you have deep pockets. Think about what your target base might type in. The key is to find one that has a high search value and low cpc. Trial and error is the way it's done.

    Don't have the control panel you use listed? Let us know.

    One of the most effective ways to get your company promoted is the most obvious one via search engines. If you are listed in the major serch engines such as Google, Yahoo, AOL, Alta Vista, Lycos, All The Web you would receive trageted traffic from each of them.

    I agree with RH Robert, no best place but there is a right place.
    Choose what is your niche

    if programmers and so then www.devlance.net www.hotscripts.com

    if designers then www.yaxay.com and the like

    try out www.targetedvisitors.info and galacnet.com and some members here who have advertising. thanks, thru trial and error you will find your right place and maybe the best place for you. No two businesses are alike so arent the "right" places

    some graphic sites and scripts sites are also good such as nolimitmedia and hotscripts

    Get a good campaign running on Google, Overture and other PPCs, then watch the Other Offers & Requests forum for ad space available on individual sites.

    depends really on your market, i would say local advertising is very good.

    I agree with Yaser - local advertising doesn't get used much when it comes to web hosting but it can be pretty effective.

    I believe that advertising on WebHostingTalk is one way - but you have to have a compelling competitive edge over your competitors if you really want your company to be considered.

    Word of mouth, forums, and asking your customers to link to you (small "hosted by" buttons help encourage that) are worthwhile free options. But they're no good for volume.
