Who do you guys use for web hosting?

We use site5 and their stuff is down. No tech support number, just online. It's difficult to talk to someone online when you can't even pull up their website.

We've had problems in the past, but I thought we worked out the kinks. I think it might be time for a new hosting option.

We bought our domain name from them, but on the advice of a tech friend we went with site5.

Thanks man.

what type of site are you running? Some providers are better than others depending on the service you use. If you are using and creating a basic template site 1&1 is fine, if you are using a CMS (like a wordpress template) using a SQL database, then they suck.
 
Is the site static, do you have a blog on it? Let me know and I can point you in the right direction. I just went through all of this last year.

CALI - we have a blog on it, and we also stream video (we've developed a few commercials. We first created a site from scratch with Dreamweaver, but for the re-do, we used a Joomla template.

Moraen- sound like you and I have a similiar site. I use dreamhost and have been happy with it. I had quite a few people recommend them for sites using CMS (joomla is a cms).
 
Good Luck

Admins:  Can we ban rrkreech? He is just using this forum to generate a backlink to his website (this helps his google rankings)

I would stick to a big name when it comes to hosting.  GoDaddy is good.  There are also many other if you search for Top 10 Web Hosting Services.  Just make sure the hosting service is able to give you everything you need... MySQL, forms scripting, Flash support, etc.  Your tech person can help you with the functions. If you greater detail PM me.Good Luck.
