    There are a number of good ones.

    HostGator is popular. At the moment I'm using both Namecheap & Lifetime Hosting. Lifetime is good for a small site. You pay one time and no monthly fees, but the inode limit is half what Namecheap or HostGator give you. (Inode refers to the number of files you can have in your account.)

    I'm sure you'll get a large list of hosting services from other members.

    Depends entirely on what you need. Personally, I use DigitalOcean, who provides VPS-services, quite good speed, but they're not the cheapest - and you need to know how to set up a server yourself, nobody will hold your hand. They do have very good support and guides on the site, though.

    I use the cloud hosting on hostgator. I personally find the support (live chat) pretty good. I like the cloud hosting over the shared hosting because it is faster. It really depends on how big your site is. They have 100k inode limit and if your under that they will back up your site for free. if not you can buy codeguard (which isn't expensive at all) to back it up for you.

    I would actually highly suggest staying away from HostGator, they're EIG owned now and there are a number of forum threads of customers complaining their support has gone down hill a lot.

    If you are just starting out then basic shared hosting with a good host is probably best. Once you start getting some decent traffic I would recommend moving to a VPS.

    My recommendations (for Norwegians)
    domeneshop.no
    sircon.no

    I have used these web hosts for many years without any problems, good prices and good support.

    Firstly this question completely depends on what are your website plans, What traffic you are expecting, how much data it will load, Speed, performance, managed or Unmanaged , Budget this are some of the basic points that will define your website requirement.
    In general we have seen a rise in our VPS hosting plans from few months.

    One thing about domeneshop.no (which I use myself for some things, like buying Norwegian domains) is that they use shared servers, and their server-side security has left some things to be decided, on several occasions. Doesn't mean I wouldn't use them, they have good support, provides SSH-access to servers, and have few limits on what you can install, just be sure that what you store there isn't sensitive data.

    I think generally HostGator or even Godaddy is highly recommended for hosting duties, but ultimately it depends a lot on your own set of requirement. I do care about cost, but still I keep the quality as primary thing which is why I even have CDN for my web site. As it too hard to make your mark on global note without quality CDN with you and that’s why I prefer BitNGo, as they have really made thing awesome with innovative technology, having over 100+ data centers, Advanced Cache Controls, Unlimited Numbers of Zones and all that at very much affordable rates!
