The problem I have is I have over 10 domains that need to be hosted. So I need atleast 20 GB bandwidth with the same amount for space. I'm mostly looking for uptime and speed since I host dozens of downloads and live chat.
Midphase I crossed out, rude staff with website speed not going abov 25 KB.
Other than Hostgator I see all those sites listed on "fake" web directories with Top 10 ranks created based on which pay more for refered customers at CJ.
In all fairness, once a company starts a high paying affiliate program via CJ, it will be, sooner or later, added to many "top hosts lists". It's just a matter of time really. Being listed there doesn't make a host bad, nor good (unfortunately). In the end, it all goes back to their real service as revealed freely by customers here, and on other forums and sites.
