As a web designer I have a special interest in finding the best web
hosts. I have experienced some down right horrible web hosts. Clients
don't want problems and neither do I. So I have searched high and low
for the best web hosts and tried probably a dozen different web hosts. I
have done research, asked associates, posted on forums, and in the end
found a handful of hosts I trust. The most important factors to me are
1) Level of customer service 2) Speed 3) Allow Secure Shell Access 3)
Feature Rich 4) Monthly Bandwidth 5) Space 6)
These guys have all the elements of what I look for in a good host and
their prices are great too.
