    I need better bandwidth
    The company should provide 99.9% network uptime and 30-day money back guarantee.

    Bluehost is pretty good, they are apart of EIG which is the parent company of basically all major hosts.

    Stay away from Bluehost.

    One major issue with Bluehost, Hostmonster, JustHost, Hostgator...all EIG owned hosting providers is that their service is terrible.

    Read some reviews. Google: "Bluehost reviews"

    If you can find a site that reviews them and isn't an affiliate of theirs, you'll see how people have downgraded the service of their companies.

    I hosted with them originally and then when they sold to EIG, who is associated with Sitelock, I received an email from Sitelock saying they scanned my files (without my permission or notification) and they found malware.

    That's interesting as we specialize in detecting, removing and preventing website malware. I replied to their email requesting a phone call.

    A salesperson calls me and starts telling me about how wonderful they are...I stop him and tell him who we are. He then goes quiet on the phone and says, "Oh. This isn't going to end well for me is it?"

    Bottom line is, the hosting provider allows an outside company to view your files. They say their scans found something but they never tell you what - because often times they don't find anything. But they want to sell you thousands of dollars worth of their services.

    Google: sitelock reviews

    Check out pissedconsumer's section on them.

    If you're looking for a good hosting providers check out a2hosting.com or inmotion hosting for shared hosting accounts. If you're looking for a VPS/dedicated server, check the listings in this forum.

    I am also thinking of hosting my website and it will be my first time. I find this comment to be useful. Also, my intention is to get more US traffic so I am hoping the hosting service you recommended can achieve this for me. Meanwhile, I will be around to read more reviews.

    After all my domains were down for tree days when Hostgator was bought by EIG (was it in 2012?) and I had to look for a new host because they did not get them up again, I can only say to stay away from any hosting company that’s owned by them. If you want to do yourself a favor don’t go with any host listed here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Endurance_International_Group

    Go with a smaller host where you are still welcome as a customer and were they want you to stay because you are happy.

    And I forgot to mention that it’s best to go only with those who offer MONTHLEY payments. So if anything goes wrong I leave them without giving them money for nothing. I thing that web hosters offering monthly payments are giving better support because they want you to stay.

    Go for a provider who not only guarantees 99.9% uptime but also provide an SLA (Service Level Agreement). They should have 24/7 support (live chat, ticket, phone), provide complementry backup and nearly 30 days moneyback guarantee to check their service and support level.

    If you can not find a hosting provider to fit your requirements in our hosting offers section then I would recommend Namecheap myself and have had several years of great service with them. The only thing they do not have is a 30 day money back guarantee, theirs if 2 weeks I believe. You will not need that though as I am sure they will meet your needs and exceed your expectations.

    That depends on what you are asking. If you are asking about their hosting services and support, then I would not use the word "reliable" in a good way for their hosting.

    Their support IS reliable at taking forever to solve support issues and showing their lack of technical training.

    They are also reliable as far as causing you headaches when dealing with their support!
