Hey. New to the forums, I wish I knew about this place before I signed up with Herculeshoster last year. There went my money down a drain.
So now I am very very cautious in signing with any webhost, wondering if its a scam or not. Right now I am looking for a host for a district youth website.
I need space and bandwidth mostly. Not too expensive, if possible. Of course PHP support, etc.
If anyone can give me some good hosting companies that have been researched and watched closely, not being scams.. please let me know, I'd greatly appreciate it.
Check with your local chamber of commerce to see if they have a local company or companies they can recommend.
Fill out http://www.webhostingtalk.com/request.php
For those companies that respond, call and get a feel for what it is like to talk with the people who work at the company.
Are they a provider who own or rent their equipment?
Are they a reseller? Are they a reseller of a reseller?
Ask them how you can verify their answer.
When did their company open? When did they start hosting?
Who are their typical clients? Ask for references, and call them.
I would recommend www.netwire-solutions.com They have flexible plans and great support.
i've been with A Small Orange Hosting for a while now and they are excellent. highly recommended!
