I have tried googling and more traditional means as well, but I am not able to find a good list of large to medium size hosts.
I'm getting ready to launch a service that they could use, and I'm trying to develop my list to reach out to them. I'm open to paying for a good list, but so far I've come across only very short lists or really bad data. Ideally I'm looking for a list with 400+ hosts, and contact data would be a nice bonus. Any help or pointers to a good source is appreciated.
I've just searched in Google for a list of web hosts and have found some. If you can't find one with 400 or more on, then just combine several lists. If you want data on these host, I'm not sure how easy that'll be.
There are some web hosting directories that claim to have thousands of shared hosting providers in their databases.

Just to clarify, granted, I could try piecing together a list from scratch, but that would be a drawn-out painful process, plus I wouldn't know a part-timer host versus a 1000+ domain host without more research. I was hoping to get a hold of a list that would take that leg of the work out of this project.
Essentially, there are information providers that make a living offering lists like this, the problem I'm having is the list they have is junk. One site is web design, another is 404, another is an article, etc. We don't have a lot of resources, and building a list from scratch is time and labor intensive. So that's the problem I'm trying to solve ;-)
