Domain comes with hosting
Only $7 / month.
I actually like to use Bluehost.com they have unlimited domains and unlimted space for only 3.95 a month. You cant beat that with 24/7 support. All my websites are hosted there. They and hostmonster are the same company and both are great
Before choosing any web hosting company, people should not forget to read the TOS and SLA of the company. There are many restrictive things you are not informed about before signing up with them. The TOS and SLA helps you to avoid future problems. Secondly, one should always opt for a company which is available 24/7 for you through multiple channels. Support is the most important thing for any business in a hard time.
I think the "problem" is that there are so many that will work just fine. I would definitely recommend a large company to a smaller, unless the company offers hosting as part of a package. I suppose the best way to approach it is to find others who've built similar sites and see with whom they are hosting. If they're satisfied, they'll likely be a suitable host for you.
I have seen people be way overpriced. I've seen people paying over $1000 a year for hosting that shouldn't cost more than $60 a year. Sometimes the buyers justify it by saying that they offer 24/7 support, or offer advice and services that are unique, but most web hosts offer that kind of service.
Nothing's free. Every penny you save is coming out of hardware, customer service, or both. I've made my way through several companies on shared hosting and VPS plans -- all of which were ultimately a huge disappointment.
Spammers would eventually take over a box, you'd see performance problems on your site, and after jumping through customer service hoops, you'd eventually reach someone who spoke enough english to understand the problem, could suspend the spammer's account, but ultimately couldn't prevent it from happening again.
I'd say, either find something free or super-cheap, or pay for virtual or dedicated hosting at rackspace, amazon, or colo at a local ISP.
I use MochaHost and their service is quite reliable. Their online database support is quick, I know because with some of the services I offer, hundreds of database lookups and copious PHP processing gets done on one submission, plus they give me a lot of unlimited stuff.
You may notice that when you host on some hosts your pages are indexed more rapidly than other hosts. With MochaHost my pages are indexed within a few days. Besides they let me keep ".exe's" on my site whereas other hosts flatly refuse to accept that format, even WinZip self-extracting ones.
I noticed a lot of people complain about how slow their host response is, but oftentime they neglect to factor in the gateways to their browser. If you think your host is slow do some timing tests to calculate how much time it takes to process a script.
For myself and a couple of clients, who are mainly displaying samples of artwork and do not need server-side scripting or database, http://www.doteasy.com is very satisfactory. Of course, they have several plans that offer server-side scripting and database, but the FREE hosting they offer when you register your URL through them is great. With their "Buddy system," you can increase the 100MB storage space to 1000MB.
I have only one website and hosted at hostgator…and I am really happy with them….I really like their customer support…I had some serious problem with my htaccess file….I added a www before my domain name and made a big mistake in my htaccess file and had terrible problem with google….and finally hostgator support team solve the problem for me….so very satisfy with their package and service….
I am using addora.com hosting, I like their customer support and pricing, their 24\7 support works :) I've checked and always was answered in live-chat, they answered my tickets in 1-2 hours

here are some of their advantages:

I like HostGator, it is the most popular hosting company and it is used by lots of people.
It is affordable, secure and and it has too many features as well.
