    What if you are both?
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    I like to play by the rules.


    And; what are resellers? (traditional resellers. Not the "everybody's a reseller" thing)
    There is no best host. There is only the host that's best for you.

    Judging by the other thread, the intent of the poll probably could have been better met with three choices (and more clearly specified choices), something like:

    1 - in the hosting business, whether you operate a website or not.
    2 - not in the hosting business, but operate a site.
    3 - neither.

    But as it is, I'd guess the intent is that anyone in the hosting business should answer "hoster" even if they are also hosted, and anyone who is not in the business should answer "hosted."

    keep it simple for better looking results.

    HOSTER: Someone who hosts people (resellers too)

    HOSTED: Someone who is hosted by a hoster and does not do hosting themselves.
