    Looking for web hosting.

    I'm forced to move 2 of my domains with their hosting to a new provider. I've done some reading and picked HostGator and GoDaddy as possible new provider, and also Network Solutions [since I'm already their customer].

    So, if anyone has past or present experience with above providers [or knows of another good one I haven't seen], please share
    P.S. Shared UNIX hosting will be enough for those domains I need to transfer, I'm not looking for VPS.

    I host all my domains with Godaddy on a shared server and find it to be cheap and reliable. Ive heard good things about hostgator, but they are also a bit more expensive I believe. Anyway, Ive only used one of the two, but never had any issues with GD personally.

    Best of luck,

    Freehostia.com is shared unix servers.

    I use them, I'm on the value plan which is $1.95/mo and you get 500mb diskspace and 10gb/mo bandwidth. I'm paid until 2013

    Customer support is good, anytime I needed help I got it within a few minutes.

    I use WebHostingPad. It's unlimited everything for $4/month for a 2 year plan. Good up-time and speed, no problems yet.

    I have an affiliate link in my signature, if you are interested I would appreciate if you used it.

    i use Godaddy and have no problems. And I use the the mid range or what it's called deluxe hosting where you can host multiple number of domains. I like using it, I mean Godaddy but if you want something a little bit cheaper, then Hostgator is the cheapper one.

    Thanks

    BTW. You can try also try webpromotionsystems.com by Jim mckinnely and it only cost for 25.00 to 40.00 I think for ten years of hosting.

    Thanks

    HostGator ftw. They are more expensive, though I did a reseller package and sell just enough domains so that it pays for itself. Hostgator's support is top notch and in the 4 years I've been hosting there I've not once had any complaint that wasn't rectified.

    As with someone above I still buy and operate all my domains out of GoDaddy, as I think their domain control panel is first rate and their service is pretty good as well.

    Hostgator for sure. They have a very low cost package which allows you to host as many domains as you want. As previous posters have mentioned, their support is top notch.
