I would be careful with most "webhost rating" sites around the web, as mainly they are powered by "The host the pays the most, gets to be #1". If you search around you will understand what I'm talking about.
Do a search for lunarpages in the forum, I think thats your best bet for reviews.
Yes, you are correct. LunarPages has received very positive feedback from webhostingjury.com. In addition, they have also received positive feedback from other forums on the internet. They have received awards as Best Customer Support and Most Reliable Host. Furthermore, they were rated #1 Web Host by ratemyhost.com.
There are so many hosting companies to choose from on the internet and the decision can be very challenging. The best advice is to try out any hosting company on a monthly basis. Thus, if you are not happy, you can cancel your service and move to another hosting company.
I would also suggest that you contact them a few different times and see the type of response that you get. This will give you a good idea about their customer service. Overall, LunarPages is a good choice.
I use LunarPages for 3 of my sites. Have always had very good luck with them. Very good support... always rated high around the net... great connectivity speeds. Willing to jump through hoops to help you do what you want to do.
Make money in your jammies!

I've been with Lunarpages for about two months now and are getting ready to move my accounts. Downtown on email has been significant. Periods of email outage have, on occasion, exceeded 48 hours. Confirmed that it was not my ISP. Ruled out everything else. The problem is on Lunarpages' end, but they've yet to admit it. Was able to reach tech support fairly quickly, but they've never been able to help.
I get the impression from the research I've done since this problem started that Lunarpages used to be great and have terrific customer service, but complaints have increased significantly over the last 8-10 months. Don't know what's happened, but service for me certainly is not as good as the reviews make it out to be.
CoffeeCup software is NOT worth 700.00. I downloaded that junk on shareware.com years ago. You could buy Dreamweaver a few times for that cost!
Heh, maybe twice...at the prices Adobe is asking now.
As for the 100 gig transfer...I assume you were on a Basic plan? Shared server hosting is tenuous at best. All it takes is one script to start using excessive resources and a flag goes up. That's why it's best to keep up with the scripts running on your account.
Like I said previously, it all depends on an individual user. Most are not affected, some are.
Lunarpages are ok, for the price. But as said - they might be restrictive with your account-access if you get near the promised allocated bandwidth.
Note that you need to sign up for 24 months in order to get their lowest 6.95 $US per month cost, which to me sounds a bit too long of a commitment.
2 years of commitment is way too long.... If you ever run into issues regarding your BW, your account can be suspended and your only choice is to upgrade your plan or lose the money and go elsewhere.
