What sort of ideas do you want your hosting name to convey? Are you aiming at any subgenre of hosting? Is there a word that people might google and you would like your name to come up? Write down all words that come to you and visit a thesaurus. A thesaurus never works for me but do anything to continue the inner dialogue with yourself on this subject.
Someone suggested not including "host" in the name. As a similiar example, GoDaddy has been very successful with a name that has nothing to do with their industry. It's something to think about.
I myself would probably have "host" in my name, but I don't know why. Obviously it would do no good in the search engines. Think hard and have fun!

I disagree with you nexdog. I think having a domain with the name "host" or "hosting" in it is a good idea for a budding business. It's important to let browsers know what sort of a website they are surfing.
This coming from someone with a business named statusweb

We looked for a name that was able to convey what our focus was, but avoided using the word "host" in the process. Catchy and innovative names (such as combinations of 2 words), can also be effective. Ask family and friends for ideas, as well.
