    Help me choose a host

    I am considering the following hosts:

    bethehost.com
    ipowerweb.com
    ************
    lunarpages.com

    Which one of the above has the best support / reliability?
    Which would you suggest?

    Maybe a host other than those listed above? Thanks.

    Welcome to WHT.

    The name that appeared as ******* has been blocked for a reason. It's against the rules to get around the filter by adding spaces, so I edited out the name.

    I can't comment on the hosts listed, but here's the usual advice:

    - Do a forum search for these names and read the reviews.
    - Look in the Shared and Reseller Hosting Offers forum.
    - Use the "Find a Host" link at the top of the page.

    When you see hosts that look like they may meet your needs, do a search for them, and ask about them here if you want.

    You can use the PM'ing system only when you achieve 5 or 10 posts ( not sure, check the rules ).

    Here's the search results of "bethehost" http://webhostingtalk.com/search.php?searchid=65634

    Okay. Those search results only provide only two posts that actually give feedback. I'd like some more info please on bethosehost, as well as other in my list. Thanks.

    You should find plenty of feedback on Lunarpages and ipowerweb. They have both been around a long time. As far as bethehost not having reviews here then that may very well be good news as it seems to be more BAD reviews here than good on many companies. You can also check their websites as they may have client reviews onsite and a forum. Just be sure to email the potential hosts and ask some presales questions....I wouldnt just search here and then directly signup with anyone without inquiring directly first.

    Right, you should find reviews both here and elsewhere on ipowerweb and Lunarpages, since both are large companies that have been around for some time. I haven't heard of bethehost, maybe they are a new player. In that case there will be fewer opinions to find. Regarding the **** company, I can guess which it might be and surely there are opinions on that one also.... just make sure you get the honest ones.

    I am currently with BeTheHost, and I can honestly say there the best webhost iv'e ever used.

    The prices are exelent, as is the speed and reliability of the servers, the support is exeptionaly good, the staff are friendly and endlessly helpfull.

    With BeTheHost you ask for an inch and they give you a mile!

    Iv'e been with them for over 12 months now and in that time the servers have been down for nothing other than upgrades to make them faster!

    Also since the hosting speeds project started over at hostingspeeds .com im proud to say bethehost has never dropped below second place! now thats telling you something.

    10 out of 10? deffiniately 10.

    Thanks for your review.

    Can you give us the domain that you have hosted with them for verification purposes? We ask for this information for reviews. You can post it in this thread or use the "report this post" link (in the bottom left corner, below the username) to send it to the helpdesk.

    Thanks.
