    Would you mind posting the name of your host if it's cheap, in the USA, and you're happy with it. I'm thinking of switching hosts and am having a really hard time deciding which hosts to consider. Thank you in advance.

    I've been on the Gold plan at http://www.adthosting.com for over a year with no problems.
    They also have a Bronze plan for $4.95/month or $49.50/year w/ 2 gig transfer, 50mb space, php, 2 mysql databases and cPanel w/ phpmyadmin. I'd *never* go back to a host that didn't have cPanel.
    http://www.webhostingtalk.com is a good place to get feedback and opinions on hosts.

    http://www.jodohost.com is quite good too, gives you different levels of service, and your choice of Windows/Linux and MySQL/MSSQL.

    I am using http://www.ixwebhosting.com and have very few complaints. I would recommend them as well.

    http://deafening-urge.net works great for me. They have a whole plethora of plans, and there support is pretty nice. All issues I have had have been resolved within a day.

    xtool - how is the service with ipowerweb? I'm thinking about moving to them after my free contract with 1&1 is up.

    TG - ipowerweb does not allow ssh access. I used them for a couple of commercial websites I created.
    For the same price, you get all the goodies ipowerweb offers, plus ssh access, and more mysql databases, at serverfly.com.

    The previous person was me! :) TG - I think serverfly.com is one of the few hosts that provide WordPress, and 56 other scripts with every package. WP is getting noticed :)

    Yeah, serverfly looks like a good one. I just emailed them to ask them a few questions. I wanted to find out if wordpress installation was included in the monthly (well prepay annual) fee or not. Do you know if they give you a discount if you refer someone? If they do let me know. I'll tell them your name or domain if I sign up with them.

    I don't have an account with them yet :P
    Maybe I can tell them to give you some credit when I sign up in May, after you do :) (But I have to know who Anonymous is, first)
    :)

    $8/month isn't the cheapest around, but I can vouch for the quality of service.

    i used http://dr2.net
    you can check http://ace-host.net (they reply to customer service, but you should check first how many MySQL databases they allow...when I first signed up I only got one so I cancelled, it may have changed) i think they have decent specials

    I decided to go with http://www.icdsoft.com
    And 2fargone was entirely right...they have fast and helpful tech support. I had a question about MySQL database and within 3 minutes of submitting the help request, I had an accurate response. I've never seen such fast customer service.

    I just signed up with http://siteground.com. $4 / month, no setup fee. CPanel backend, 5 mySQL databases, unlimited e-mail, etc. etc. Used a credit card, and they might do PayPal, too?
    I get a referral bonus, so let me know if you're thinking about using them.

    My host is UK based but it seems really fine to me and very good value.
    Twenty pounds a year (30 dollars) per domain gives you everything we WPers need and more. Credit cards accepted. Live chat for queries. And a whole stack of stuff including 6 gig bandwidth in the standard fee. Their informative web site is here: Here.
    Upgraded site stats are on their way apparently. It does not make any difference where you live. I host mission critical corporates in the US but I wanted to try a
    local mom and pop operation; being a brit personal blog. They seem fine. I used Gandi.net for my domain and they are very very cool. By far the best I have ever encountered.
    (Beginners Tip: Keep your domain registration-separate from the host. It is easier to admin, gives wider choice and hassle free if you need to move) HTH

    I'm using http://www.creationstorm.com and they just rock at speed and service and stuff. 250 mb, 5 GB traffic. All for a few bucks a month.

    BTW, for obvious reasons I don't think anonymous replies on this thread are a good idea since it's showing up on some search engines, and anonymous replies or users who register just to post on this thread will be deleted.

    @antifuse: are you actually hosted on bloghosts now?
    I'm considering a switch...
    Been hosting a WP blog with geekhosting.com for a few months now. I compared lots of different plans and they offered a good deal.
    So far everything works, downtime only happened once
    (but lasted over 1 hr), BUT support seems nonexistent - it's been more than a week.
    Although I've found the answer by myself, I worry about the day I might really need some support...
    Thanks all for the useful thread, a lot of hosting forums seem to be stuffed full of rave reviews that I don't know whether to trust or not.
