    Hello,

    IMHO there is not such like "the best host", it could be the best for you. If some provider is the best for you it could be not for somebody else. And if you are looking for new hosting provider and you are not sure which one to choose, check if there is money back guarantee, so you could change the service if not happy.

    I heard a lot of negative feedbacks about Host Gator. Maybe you should look for another one.

    There's no best host. There's only the best host *for you*.

    EDIT: Looks like WindowsHosting beat me to the punch.

    They have a lot of happy customers also. I have seen many positive reviews about them. And there are negative reviews also as you said. That is why you can see experts saying there is no best host in general but only there is host that is best for you.

    The real question is, what are you looking for?

    Hostgator may be excellent for you, but sucks for someone else. That is because both of your needs, may be totally diff.

    The term "best host" is something subjective.

    A client with a small website with 3 pages would be happy with a decent host paying 1$ / month and having uptime 99.8% - support responses with 24 hours and monthly / weekly backups.

    An owner of online shop would not be happy with such a host and would pay 30$ per month for 99.9+% uptime with daily (or hourly) backups and support responses within 15 minutes.

    For me the bests hosts:
    - budget hosting: Hostgator
    - premium hosting: Cartika

    I think if we loose the client or the customer from our site due to hosting issue then money back guarantee doesn't work because we already lost one customer which worth more then that hosting amount.

    But you have chosen that particular provider. Of course that is a risk and that is up to you what top chose, but I believe that if every customer important to you you will find such solution (including backups and full monitoring etc) but in this case you will have much more expensive solution. And you decide what to chose sheap wa6y with the risk or expensive with minimum risks.

    I agree - find a hosting company with a money back guarantee. That shows confidence in a company...and you aren't stuck with something you're not sure about.

    Hi,

    As much as it pains me to say it, because we offer a money back guarantee ourselves (and do honour it), it doesn't mean much if the company behind it doesn't care about its customers - if they are so bad in providing their service that they don't care what customers think then why would they bother honouring any guarantee?

    Research as always is the key.

    Thanks,

    I think money back guarantee is just one more trick for Marketing that is all.

    You'll see a lot of positive reviews when companies are paying $50 to $125 per affiliate sale

    I'll give them a negative myself. I'm pretty happy with webfaction atm though, but their hosting panel takes some getting used to

    I think the best shared host is Hostgator and the best dedicated host is The Planet.

    While it has had its problems in recent months, I still must say that I really do love (mt)mediaTemple and will continue to use them hopefully for a long time.

    Actually you should ask the question "What hosting company to avoid?" Two years ago I use Notrio and it was a very painful experience.
