A couple of comments:

* Unlike Adam, I have had no issues with NameCheap as a registrar. I've used them for many years. I don't use NameCheap's DNS though, so maybe that's the difference. I also have not had any surprise pricing issues on renewal.
* For hosting, I co-locate my own server. I *LOVE* fdcservers.net for cheap colocation, especially if you have high bandwidth needs. When I first started using them around 2002 they were iffy (but the price couldn't be beat so I stuck with them), but have had zero issues with their service in years. I co-locate in their Chicago location, which seems to be their best managed location.

Liquidweb has proven to be an excellent host. I was recommended by a friend to give them a try.
A bit pricey however so I am looking for same qualities at a fraction of the cost.

Managed:

http://www.urljet.com/ - Forum specific hosting, excellent support with hourly backups and cPanel. Prices aren't cheap for shared hosting, but it's not typical shared hosting - We're on a highly optimized 16 Core server running Litespeed Enterprise - outperforms any VPS I've used (including surviving DDOS attacks that we only noticed due to high activity in the logs, the server didn't flinch). To get similar service and support elsewhere we'd be paying a lot more.

UK hosting - https://www.tsohost.com/ - very cheap, very high level of support. Looking through my previous support tickets, average response time has been between 2-10 minutes.
+1 on Tsohost, good support who really go out of their way to help you, and fast response times... no matter what day it is...

I always go for NameCheap. They are set up pretty nice and easy to figure out where to go without being redirected to something else.
Yes, check their new shared plans and prices. It's awesome. ;)

I have been with byethost for a number of years, maybe 15 at least..They have changed there name to ifastnet.com

They are located in Manchester England..

Support comes out of Columbus Ohio and Manchester UK

I have always been taken care of in a short time, sometimes matter of minutes..

I have three accounts with them, I also host my domains with them.

They have paid and free hosting,, free hosting is useless like the others, slow and ads..

They did a pretty good job with the style for their forum. You do see that a lot with hosting sites like that.
I'm not even registered on their forum. LOL I'm a failure for a client. X.X

I don't understand why hosting sites have to have a forum... Never understood that. Annoys me a bit actually.

It can be quite useful to have one.
Problem with your site?
Anyone else complaining publicly on their forum?
You don't have to open a ticket, clear that the host has problems.

True, True. I guess I've never seen them as active enough to actually get support from other people with.

Dreamhost's VPS (not their shared hosting). $15/month now gets you a basic VPS with a gig of RAM, and 30 GB of solid state drive, and it scales up from there. I've been with them for a year and a half and I've been pretty satisfied.
