    I like Hostgator quite a lot. Anything that runs on
    The Planet is similar to HG I think. Hostmonster, etc.

    Just out of curiosity, can I ask you why do you don't like HostGator. I've been using them and I absolutely love them

    And BTW, I don't know of anyone as good as HostGator

    It's great what you get with Host Gator. If you have a problem or even just a stupid question, you can click on the online support and a guy pops up (a real person!) and helps you fix it right away. I wish my cable TV provider was that good.

    I am diversifying my efforts on few hostings. I had HG already and looking for another one. All these cpanel are very similar so it's painless to move to another one.

      I used to use godaddy, but got much better value with hostmonster.

      (Nah, they didn't pay me to say that!)

    hawkhost.com is good. I know what you mean about diversifying. If you have more than a couple sites in a niche you probably want to spread them out. Look at webhosting talk for more Hosts in their shared hosting forum

    I think Hostgator is great but I have a friend who uses DreamHost. I checked it out on there free trial and I think there great I just didn't want to take the time to transfer all my domains over from HostGator.

    HostGator...

    then...

    HostMonster/BlueHost (essentially the same host)

    They have support almost as good as hostgator. Downside. Neither have dedicated servers.

    Dreamhost is good... but I think you have to pay for instant support like what you get with HostGator via chat. I think if you pay a fee you get a tech dedicated to your account (who knows how many accounts this tech is dedicated to). But still a decent host. I think they have both shared and dedicated options for hosting.

    Stablehost - been with them for a few weeks and so far so good. They have a lot of good reviews on Webhostingtalk and they usually are running a special on webhostingtalk for 50% off for life.

    I use Webhostingbuzz and they have been pretty good. My server has had a couple of reboots this month, but otherwise they are pretty stable and have GREAT customer service. I've had accounts with hosters that have crappy or NO customer service and it makes a big difference.

    I personally like using WHM and seperate CPs for my domains. I think Hostgator you have to use AddOn domains?

    Doubt everything you believe.

    I currently have sites hosted on Hostgator, Hostmonster and work with a client hosted on Godaddy.

    I have also found Hostgator to be the best but they all are good. I don't have to wait as long on the phone for Hostgator for support as I do with Godaddy but once they answer they both provide great support.
