    Who is your personal web host and why?

    I have an Amazon EC2 instance running CentOS with cPanel. I've been very happy with it! For my clients who obviously don't want to set up their own VPS, I recommend Namecheap shared hosting, which they have been happy with.

    What web host do you use and why?

    I bet haha. HostGator seems like another GoDaddy to me. I can't say for sure though, I've never used them.

    I don't trust any other host than Hosting24.. I have tried HostGayTard and GoPapy so as 1andWorst... Hosting24 is cheap, slow but it works just fine for a simple wp page hehe. Support is great and fast.. they don't BS talk!

    I think this is the only host with reasonable prices I've seen on the replies so far! Looks pretty good.

    LunaNode, DO (DigitalOcean), Vultr, Atlantic.net...

    Shared hosting? No thanks! Moved to VPS's some 10 years back, haven't looked back. A bit of a learning curve to begin with, managing your own servers, but definitely worth it. Learn Ansible and everything basically runs itself. Tutorials on any server and application management subject imaginable at DO, all in one place.

    There is almost no way to find a trustful review on any host out here... 99% of the review sites are making money with affiliate programs..

    Too much fake reviews and finding the right hosting provider is a nightmare!

    When I will want to build something serious I will go with Pagely.com! they work with VISA, Disney, EBAY and many more!

    Pricey but you can trust them!

    WOW, you weren't kidding! Plans starting at $99 per month. Definitely a niche for big companies though. I can see why it's so expensive since it's managed. Hosted by AWS, so it's essentially what I have without the managed support.

    I haven't had a single problem with my Amazon EC2 instance, I'm very happy with it! I run 8-10 websites on it with no problem.

    Rocket Scientists run the company and support and phenomenal pricing - I love my hosting company : grin :
    Shared and Reseller http://BuyShared.net/ or Servers http://BuyVM.net

    My plans are Reseller for my own use to have WHM and set up each domain as it's own CP. Been with them since 2014, excellent and fast service : thumbs up :

    You may configure your own VPS with GeekStorage (your individual plan)...
    + promocodes.

    What you are looking for: quality or price?

    I get a 4GB VPS at Amazon for $40, and it's the most high quality VPS I've ever had.

    Shared hosting @ Hawkhost.com. Don't have the time or the energy to configure, secure and maintain a VPS...

    So this thread is to advertise Amazon Cloud???
    I'm sure that Amazon doesn't need such ads...

    Not an ad for Amazon, but I was trying to say that you can get quality for cheap. I'm only name dropping because I think most will believe me that Amazon is good quality.
