    IMO, mature (stage) forums should not be on shared servers. Keep in mind, it's not usually the servers fault, nor the hosts, but the other clients on there.

    Clients with badly coded sites will bring down the speed of every site on that server, not just their own. So it's usually not the form that's slowing the server down, but others, poorly coded ones.

    I don't like them, simply because the larger your forum gets, the slower it becomes, until it just dies.
    That's funny. I have three forums and several test forums, all on one server with zero problems.

    I use them now, looking for a good host to replace them.
    Why not upgrade to a VPS or Dedicated package (with HG)?

    If they don't have VPS out already, it should be very soon.

    A site would have to be very large indeed before any effect on speed would show.

    Hostgator is, by nearly all accounts, an excellent choice for any new forum or beginning webmaster.

    Go with StartLogic hosting, I use them for a website I have and god, I had only one downtime and that was it . Very reliable and have won many awards.

    I'm hosted with GlobalGold, and am extremely satisfied with both their support as well as their pricing.

    Never heard any good about them
    I have hosted with them and they are indeed good. Better customer support than any other host in the category and relatively better uptime as well.

    I've used Hostgator for about 3 years, and have just renewed for another year. Never had any problems at all with them
