Who's your host? What do you like about them? Anything you don't like about them?

I have had Siteground (Web Hosting by SiteGround: Reliable servers & easy-to-use tools) for over 2 years now and am considering switching. They've made some changes recently that I'm not happy with (limited FTP access now - access your site too many times via FTP and the site goes down), they have also had a lot of downtime lately which is a major inconvenience. I also don't like that you can't host more than one domain (without paying an extra $30/year for each additional hosted domain).

I switched to GoDaddy a couple months ago but quickly switched back. I like GoDaddy for my domain registrations, but was very unhappy with the hosting services.

Anyone have a good recommendation? Features I'm looking for are unlimited FTP access, being able to host more than one domain, a high server uptime, and preferrably a way to reach tech support other than just through sending a support ticket.

I have been a very big fan of Netfirms for my web hosting service for the past 6 years. I started out with them using their free service and decided I wanted to expand so I have been purchasing my services.

With Netfirms I get 24/7 excellent customer service support. The plan I have gives me 3000 GB of diskspace, 3000 GB of data transfer, unlimited multiple website hosting, 5 free domain names, 1000 email addresses with 1000 MB of space each, and lots more. That's the business package which is about $12.95/month. What I also love about them is that it's rare for my website to be done. In 6 years I can count on one hand how many time they have been down and it usually lasts no longer than an hour if that.

No Problem at all. It was the fact that I had excellent service from them that made me switch to paid services. 12.95/mo for all that I get is a great steal
