    I am looking for recommendations for a new hosting company. My current one is not providing the support that I need.

    Who do some of you recommend as a good and dependable hosting provider?

    The best host I've had in terms of support is run by a senior DP member - 'compar'. Here is his web hosting site.

    I'll second Site5.com - I'm hosting most of my stuff with them and the service is exemplary. :)

    What type of support is not being provided? Before venturing out on our own, we were with Hostway for about seven years and I was very happy with their services.

    Last night, 4 of my websites were hacked. My current host claims that it was my phplinkdirectory software at www.bloggeries.com that was hacked. After 12 hours of emails back and forth, they still do not understand that the attack happened to 4 domains on 4 accounts. I have gone to my WHM and deleted each of the domains, and then recreated the accounts, and backed up from 2 week old backups. Still the sites are hacked. It has to be a server problem. My current host is Surpass Hosting.

    I am looking for a reseller account that can match theirs in price and content to move my sites, as well as about 15 clients of my site to.

    Cybershouts.net are less well known, but I have 1 of my sites with them, and the uptime/reliablity is close to perfect. In nearly one year, I've only known the site be down once, and it was only for a short period.

    Dreamhost are cheap for the first year, providing you know the right code. Reliable, but haven't had to test their support.

    Websitesource are fairly relaible, and have pretty decent support, if a little slow.

    Definitely Dreamhost. I just renewed with them for another year. I had the cheap plan for the first year, $9.95 so this coming year is definitely worth the $120. Awesome host!

    I recomend http://www.3ix.org/

    Tonight I had an email config issue so I emailed support 30 minutes ago. Within 5 minutes they had responded with a solution but also pointed out another problem with a solution to that as well and now all is good.

    Tomorrow Im ordering another domain and package with them. Good support goes a long way with me.

    As in what kind of support?
    Help in setting up your site?
    Scripts?
    Etc?

    I got burnt on many hosting companies.
    Some just quit the business, others decided they did not want me for whatever reason.
    So I went out hunting and hunting, and became a hosting reseller.
    And this was only after checking out a ton of companies.
    Presently with my company, any problems I have encountered, I have got quick replies and had my (and my customers) problems resolved fairly quick.

    have used a few hosting companies and I noticed its hard to find a company that will answer non problem answers. Most hosts will reply if your site is down but If you just dont know how to do something on your site these guys are always helpful...

    Site5 is fantastic, the only problem I have ever had with them was when I upgraded my package and had too many options to play with...

    Well, that is very gracious of you. I really do like their services. They are always adding to what they are doing and just today saw another great jump.
