Who do you host with?
Well it looks like the honeymoons over with my host, and I'm going to have to move I could put up with the safe mode, but now our attachments do not work because they do not (apparently) allow uploads via PHP. Whomever I go with next I would like to stay with, so I need to find someone who is good. I was going to switch to ServerTweak who advertises here, but they don't even answer simple questions on their thread so I'm leery about their 'service' I have a few places that I'm considering but nothing is set in stone just yet. I was wondering who you guys use for your host?

I need to move as well, so I started researching new hosts. The best on WHT seems to be site5.com and I was going to go with them untill I found out my site is to big. I have decided to get a VPS from servint.com and they get rave reviews from WHT as well.

I have been with ServInt for several months now and it's been smooth sailing. No actual down time... there were two scheduled maintenance periods and we had at least a weeks notice that there was going to be maintenance. We're on the Essential VPS.

I've emailed the NOC a few times when I needed help doing something (had Fantastico installed, had them upgrade PHP and then a problem with Fantastico after upgrading PHP LOL) They have always answered my emails within 15 minutes. They upgraded php within an hour of me asking and fixed the problem with fantastico about 20 minutes after I emailed them.

I am using http://www.hostingzoom.com at the moment but I have had a great experience with http://www.asmallorange.com. Asmallorange has quite a few busy vb forums that they host such as someboard.com so they would be good for the websites on this forum.

I am with Simpli.biz on a dedicated server and they've been great thus far. PerfectSql seems good too, they post here alot. Zachary also runs hosting at geekydesigns.com and Zachary deffinitely knows how to tweak a server for vb.

I have been personally using http://www.hostrocket.com for about two or three years, and it is the best host I have ever had. XD The prices for the packages are amazing, as well as the support, and there have been several occasions they have let me upgrade my account during hosting specials they had for new sign ups.

We are hosted on a virtual private server by http://www.vpscolo.com the support is excellent but pre sales services aren't exactly the best ones.

Yeah! But the support is very poor.
And you need to be a Linux expert, otherwise you will have lots of problems like me.

Same here, but I'm on the old Corporate monthly plan and looking to get upgraded to the Rocketthree (more stuff, cheaper price) and they want to charge me another $30 setup fee. I haven't had any problems with this host other then this.. I'd hate to leave them but I'm not paying another setup fee.
