I need to change hosting companys. I thought I would see if any forum members could recommend someone. I only need basic hosting. Thank you Patti

I'd recommend the one I use GT-Hosting.com
A variety of packages available - competitive
prices, email, and an excellent user interface!
I recently moved three of the websites I manage
If you look for GT-HOSTING.COM - it says "launching soon". However, they are fully functional and have been for a while.
If you are interested in the features and prices,
email or PM me. Depending upon your needs, I can also
get you a discounted price.

I currently use ixwebhosting.com and have been happy with the results so far.
Good luck with your choice. It's a bit of a mine field out there right now with hosting companies.

It depends also a bit on what facilities you need: php, cgi, asp, asp.net, and which databases you want to run.
AJL Hosting ( www.ajlhosting.com ) offer a whole lot. My sites are at Stormhosts ( www.stormhosts.com ) with asp, asp.net access and mysql support, and are very reasonably priced.

i recently moved my domain from globat (because of down time and hour or two on sundays at mid day) to ipowerweb. and to my pleasant surprise, they are filtering all the span into a default email account. my spam went from 30/day to 3. so i just deleted the mcafee spam killer off my 'puter.

I host 3 websites under one account at Brandblast http://brandblast.com
Their control panel has the most features I've seen in any control panel, their support people are top notch and my site so far has not been down.
I also got to try them free before I became a paying member, nothing like a host that has the confidence to let you try their services first.

I'm using iPowerweb on a couple of sites. Affordable, Linux/Apache hosting. Most all the bells and whistles. I'm not sure if they support all of what you might need, but in any case, check with the hosting company to make sure they meet all your needs before purchasing.

I have been using these people for a couple of years now. 100% coverage so far. Decent people too. No strings. £10 for .co.uk for 2 years, £18 for .com 2 years. Hosting to suit all tastes. Full featured PHP package £18 per year. Give them a try.
Regards to All,
I have used many different hosts in the past but the best I have found yet is by far http://www.powersurge.com They have the best control panel I have ever used, very easy and very powerful and their basic plan at $14.99 per month is a great bargain in light of all of the services they offer. All of the other places I have been with including some of the big boys have made lot's of claims but when you sign up they disappear.
They also have great support 24/7 included in all of their hosting plans.
I would highly recommend you check them out.

I have been using One World Hosting for all my clients, as well as my own site, and have never had any problems with them. Their service and support is excellent, and they have Mac support too (good for me). Their standard package gives you more than enough space and bandwidth, and I haven't seen any other company offer 200GB of space! And lots of great add ons in their very easy to use Control Panel (a biggy for me... I can't stand inadequate control panels). And if you re-sell space, you can access your sub-domains from your own control panel, if you wish.
Very good support, thumbs up to those people!
Check their specs from their Technical Support page, as well.

Cheap and reliable.
