    http://www.domainsvision.com

    When i signed up i thought i got a good deal, Just over £80 for;

    50Mb webspace
    Unlimited bandwidth
    Cpanel
    Unlimited subdomains/databases/email addresses
    Ventures Online is 1500MB space, 40GB/month bandwidth, cPanel, root access since the account is semi-dedicated. I've never seen a downtime of more than 3-4 hours.

    For £55/mo. Oh, and vBulletin.com uses Ventures Online too.

    Man it took me 2 months to get my DNS changed, I had to contact the MAIN dns people to override them because they would not answer email or phone

    there are a ton of hosts to stay clear of.

    the key is not getting a list, but knowing what to stay away from.

    You know what they say about a deal being "too good to be true".

    Compare prices with known respected companies if you don't know what prices should look like. Anything more than 50% price difference for similar features should throw up warning signs.

    Yahoo is pretty limited, they basically are offering a small upgrade from GeoCities, but that's about it.

    Stay off of there, you can't have attachements because the phpinfo.php file is weird.

    On the phpinfo page:

    System Nothing to see here... Move along...
    WTF. Guess they don't want hackers.

    I've been on liquidweb for about 3 months now. They have been having too much down time lately. I'm moving my site as soon as I can find another host.

    i skim read the TOS and didn't see anything, but it would have still been nice of them to inform me of any changes.

    Well, unlimited bandwidth should have feared you off. Unlimited bandwidth doesn't exist. So be not surprised about the bw limit. It may was written small in the TOS or so... And 80£ for 50 MB webspace...Quite a lot. May the reoccurring downtime is due to "overselling" and the server goes down due to too high load.
