    I've had mostly good experiences with BlueHost, but I've also had my share of bad experiences with them.

    It depends what kind of hosting you want. There are some good free hosts.

    HostGator is no longer owned by Brent, and has been sold to BlueHost, actually. (This is recent, within the last week or so)
    Curious to how things will flow now.

    Do you have a link to this by any chance? Edit found it http://digitalgyaan.com/hostgator-s...aign=hostgator-sold-endurance-endurance-group

    Hostgator was sold for $225 million
    @LewisLewis

    I hate bad experiences with Hostgator as well. Such a shame. They used to disable certain scripts that I had that were using a lot of resources - even on a dedicated server. @PatrickPatrick has had bad experiences with them as well.

    I heard about that!
    I'm curious also. :3
    I guess we will see?

    [HR][/HR] @LewisLewis But aside from their customer service, how do you like OVH? Are they just a better managed host all around?
    I also dislike GoDaddy and HostGator. They are ridiculously overrated.

    I'm using 000webhost and I'm thinking that this is a pretty nice web hosting provider :)

    I use 000webhost as well, haha, but I'm not doing anything particularly fancy on them. But the uptime has been fantastic on it so far.

    Uptime is always a major winner with me, which is I personally love Knownhost I've been with them for about a year now. Their support is good as well.

    I've only worked with Bluehost and JustHost, but when I release my site, I'll be going with a different hosting company to put it on a dedicated server depending on the initial user base. :)

    Oh and Bluehost and Justhost... had no problems. Of course they are the same company XD But they are amazing at support!

    000webhost is the best free host in my opinion, second would be x10hosting imo. However, 000 is blocked by AT&T service providers. They blocked it because apparently they were trying to stop DDoS attacks coming from the site.
