    Unlimited disk space and unlimited bandwidth? Really? So if Google wanted to backup their 700 Terabytes of satellite imagery on one of your accounts for $5 a month, you can accommodate it?

    I'm sure you meant customers, but in case you didn't, it's definitely that time of year again:

    Okay, had quite a few - usually, I move if I encounter issues with the provider, but sometimes I just move to try a new host (if they have a good solid reviews on these forums).
    1. www.clipped.co.uk - Very small company on shared package. (Nearly, 18 months)
    2. www.resellerzoom.com - Was not too bad, until they started lowering resource usage on Reseller accounts. (1 month)
    3. www.servage.com - Very limited, European based - PHP environment was very limited, and become worse when trying to install certain PHP scripts (18 months)
    4. www.knownhost.com - VPS. Checked mainly for working with, but I did not find them good enough for my needs. (2 weeks)
    5. www.liquidweb.com - VPS - Were okay at first on a VPS, then they removed one main function without notifying customers on the same server. (1 Year)
    6. www.urljet.com - VPS. Good all rounder, but decided to try another. (1 Year+)
    7. www.servint.com - VPS. Not too bad, but hit a few issues. (6 months)
    8. www.urljet.com - VPS. Yes, returned back to this company because they proved to be one of the better hosts. (3 months til now)

    I do not intend moving again, my VPS is stable, support is good and above all I am happy!

    How Many Hosts Have You Been Through?

    Started on shared, don't even remember who. Likely it was iPower, as I host about 30 static sites from there for customers, with no issues.

    Went to Spry VPS from there, but the service was pathetic, so, one year later transferred to a VPS on eBoundHost. The VPS was likely fine, but a year after that I upgraded to a dedicated server with them and haven't looked back. Great service for the few tickets I have placed, and 3+ years in, still no worries.

    I can say my current host gogax has had 0 downtime yet. That's a 100% uptime, speeds are comparable, support has been superb, and the price is good. They are located in Canada.

    my first host was hostway. i was with them for a year and the uptime/performance was great, but they would nickel and dime me for anything possible, such as apache modules, changing php.ini, etc.
    i spent years with hurricane electric. they were pretty good, but they didnt offer enough bandwidth and would charge pretty steep for going over the allotment. i also didnt have much control over anything and the support was pretty non-existent, and with the increasing number of hosts offering cpanel/plesk, i finally left.
    i then moved to servage. i had a lot of control via their cp, but performance was a big issue. their support was probably the best i ever encountered though.
    a mate told me about an outfit called linode. its unmanaged, but the performance and control is outstanding while the price is great. i have been with them a few years now and i have no intention of leaving any time in the foreseeable future.

    In 10 months, I've gone through 5 hosts. My latest is fair priced and $10/mo more than the old VPS. We're on a dedicated now. The biggest problem we encountered with the first three were shared hosting, overselling, throttling, horrible customer service. The VPS was a downtime problem and the host kept blaming vbulletin for the problems, until we started digging around and found hardware issues.

    I started with SiteGround, they were ok for a few months then they told me I had to upgrade to dedicated from shared, said VPS wasn't even an option. I switched to shared on URLJet and haven't looked back.
