I had good experiences with Godaddy's Linux hosting. I host everything on a dedicated server at my house right now. I've not use any other hosts than Godaddy.

"Unlimited" plans are not unlimited. It's a marketing ploy used on consumers because the hosts don't believe the average customer will even come close to the actual limit. There is a limit to unlimited plans in all fields, an example (though not with hosting) is Verizon wireless. Verizon has a unlimited data plan, however, if you go over 5gigs you have to pay overage charges.. overage charges on an unlimited plan. There has been quite a few reports on unlimited plans for hosting, trying to tell consumers that they are false.

I myself, use Machighway.com hosting. I pay $5 a month for 10gigs of storage, 100gigs of bandwidth, and 3 databases. I've been to dozens of hosts and have never found a better one, for the first time I can call support and someone will be on the line, if I send an email I get a reply in 10 minutes. It really comes down to, do you want quantity over quality? A plan that appears good on paper, but has bad support, lies that it has unlimited but then caps you or sets overage charges on you, and the transfer rate is slow... or do you want a fair plan, one that does not lie to you, has good transfer rates, good support, etc?

btw, all hosts have FTP, if they don't I wouldn't trust them. PHP is normally support on virtually all hosts, minus a few. Unlimited Databases is extremely rare, and is normally on the $100+ a month list of web hosts.

Concur wholeheartedly. I use Site5.com and have for a decade or so now. Similar plans to those you mentioned with your host.

I host my own websites from home.

  • Unlimited bandwidth
  • Unlimited storage
  • Unlimited databases
  • Any platforms I want (ASP.NET, PHP, Java, etc)
  • FTP, HTTPS, SFTP, any other protocols I care to implement

The only downside is the bandwidth is a paltry 1.5 MB/s upstream. Seems fine to me though.

edit: Another downside is that you have to do all the implementation and configuration work yourself.

My wife and I use several hostings but we prefer iPage, great features and support + very reliable and affordable.

They also register domain names. If you register a domain name and buy their hosting, your domain name is FREE.

Besides, they don't stop at web hosting. They also give free advertising credits on top search engines, search-engine optimization tools, PC backup, malware scanning, security applications, etc.

Unlimited Disk Space, Bandwidth & Email
FREE Domain Name (Free for life, a $9.95 Value)
FREE Security Suite
FREE Site-Building Tools
FREE Online Store
FREE Google & Yahoo! Marketing Coupons
And more...

Now iPage has a promotion: Only $3.50 a month. I am going to move all my websites to this hosting.

I would suggest reading the "Anti-Spam" section of the terms of service you agreed to.

I am currently using GoDaddy on the Linux hosting. I have never had an issue with them at all. I can't rate any other services because I have never used them before. So, if it were in my opinion, I would go with GoDaddy. They are pretty cheap as well :)

I've been very happy with Dreamhost, they have "unlimited" disk/bandwidth and support PHP5 and a lot of other languages too.
