    Reliability

    Which host is better in terms of reliability, speed, and customer support?

    Dreamhost.com
    Servage.net
    Aplus.net
    Webhostingbuzz.com
    Ipowerweb.com
    Imhosted.com

    Or are there better ones with similar features?

    Hi,

    The above hosts you have mentioned are mostly very well known here on WHT, just dig around and use the search function http://webhostingtalk.com/search.php to find reviews/opinions on the hosts above.

    Take some time to do some research and be sure to send sales emails to the hosts to check their response time.

    Cheers

    Dreamhost isn't reliability, speed and support; they have many negative reviews.

    Agree those hosts are well known here. I suggest you read customers/ex-customers' reviews before choose a host from your list.

    These hosts are well known on WHT and they have been in business for considerable time. I would suggest doing extra research, read reviews, look for money back guarantee etc and make sure you contact their support few times before making any commitments.

    good hosting

    Imhosted.com isn't bad hosting. I like their support and their uptime is good enough.

    I think the one golden rule with hosting is, you get what you pay for -- don't expect the world for a penny.

    It might be smarter to look into hosts that aren't so oversold if your looking for reliability.

    Most of those hosts offer 50GB+ space and 1TB+ bandwidth which you will never actually be able to use, it's just overselling.

    Research overselling on these forums, try going with hosts that aren't so obvious about it and have good reviews on here and you might find yourself a good host.

    Don't think for one second you'll actually be able to use 10% of that space and bandwidth they offer...as soon as you start using a lot of bandwidth they will suspend your account because otherwise you'll put too much load on their oversold servers.

    Agreed, as mentioned before -- you get what you pay for.

    We've been through all of this before. I really do not think it appropriate for hosts that are not the subject of the OP's initial questioning to hash it out in the way it's been done.

    There was some good, level headed, discussion at http://www.webhostingtalk.com/showth...=467483&page=3
