I found HostVector about 7 months ago and then signed up shortly after finding them. Everything started off beautifully!
Before signing up I had a few questions and they were all answered within 24 hours. They were VERY helpful during the time I spent asking questions.
Finally, I signed up in January and my site was up within 24 hours. Excellent! Along the way I've had to ask them a few questions and each time I got very timley and helpful responses. (Through both e-mail and their support ticket system.) They are very professional and they don't get upset when you ask "dumb" questions.
I've experienced no unexpected downtime. However, there were two instances where I was notified of some planned downtime. The first time I got an e-mail stating that the server would be down for upgrades. (They gave about 24 hours motice. Honestly, I didn't even notice it was down.) The second time they e-mailed me and explained that some emergency upgrades were being performed and there would be downtime. (Again, I didn't even notice it.)
They're an excellent hosting company and I'd recommend them to anyone! They have a very wide variety of plans. From small shared hosting options to dedicated servers; everything is very reasonably priced.
If you're looking for a professional, reliable, quality host, HostVector would be an excellent choice!

Oops, forgot to link to my site. It's a simple personal site that doesn't have much on it, yet. Anway, http://www.seancannon.net
Note: The front page has next to nothing on it. However, I have a lot of family pictures and things that aren't available to the public.
It's almost been 6 months; I signed up January 3rd.
Also, I am in no way associated with the company. I just wanted to A.) tell how wonderful they are as a host and B.) possibly help others find a decent host. I know how hard it was for me to make a descision.
