OK this forum is on point... A lot of good help here and advice.
So all I want is to find a good hosting company that will give good service. I think after this year I'm done with yearly costs and stick to the monthly thing.
What is the best host out there, guaranteed?
I'm shopping around and am looking at pc-craft and oneinfo, but i was offered a deal 500MB of space with 20 Gigs of Bandwidth With unlimited features including auto responders for only $2.99 a month with unlimited sub-domains and c-panel but the company uses a template on their site so that makes a bit uncomfortable after reading some posts. Let me know what you all think b/c I need a new host bad for one of my sites.
You should try to ask around and see what other's opinions are regarding hosts they have had experience with. Try to avoid really cheap hosts, for the main reason that a company needs to make enough money to keep on running, and a high price keeps the business's cash flow smooth.
Also, try to avoid "unlimited" space and bandwidth due to the fact that if it is unlimited you can use endless amount of space and a server is never endless.
Hope this helps, and good luck.

No idea. Check out atlantic.net, pair.net & digitalinet.com
I pay $6 a month for 600 megs & 10 gigs of bandwidth unlimited email etc at digitalinet for my oscommerce store (still building it).
I use atlantic.net for windows hosting primarely.
http://findmyhosting.com/advancedsearch.asp can be of some help in finding a host. The search feature on these forums can be quite revealing in the right hands. Use it to find out what's been said about hosts at different points in time. Sometimes starting a new thread asking about some specific hosts can help too.
Personally, I wouldn't go with a host without (positive) feedback from actual customers. This is not fair towards those who are just starting, but I find it to be safer for me as a customer.
To add to SSH-Raj's post, although the domains of the hosts in question are old (were registered years ago). Both websites don't really inspire trust (judging by the design alone), but that's not a really good criteria.

Dont mistake the use of templetes as a sign of a unreliable host as many hosts use templetes now if its poorly done thats another story..
