Hi guys. i'm looking for a great host.

I'm not good with choosing a host so recommendations would be great, thanks.

That host is $20/month. Although it looks a great host, even with heavy traffic, my budget is only low.

I have always used GoDaddy and I love it.

If you ever have a problem with being able to figure something out or need help they are there all the time and are beyond helpful.

Their customer service is like nothing I have seen before.

If you are looking for something cheaper you can check out http://www.angelfire.lycos.com/hosting

I haven't used them for a very long time. But they have a free account to try it out.

I use them primarily for my webhosting needs. Their service is really top of the line, bandwidth is great, and all features needed for websites. It does NOT have cPanel though, but instead one they developed themselves. Customer Service and Tech support are top notch as well.

EDIT: FYI, basic plan starts at $2.99 a month.

There are a few of us around here that like A Small Orange.

Their smallest plan costs $42 / year (billed as $21 every 6 months)

I've been using hostgator, never had any problems :)

I highly recommend Vidahost cloud hosting, as far as "shared" hosting goes, it's the absolute best I've ever come across, both performance and customer service wise, I tested a Wordpress install with 10000 hits over 60 seconds (using loader.io) and it didn't break a sweat - https://www.vidahost.com/cloud-web-hosting their VPS/Dedi range is great too, but I've found that the cloud does all I need for a lot less £££, start with he basic package and scale up as needed :)

This is a 10% discount code they gave me - VIDA452
