Are any of you using a hosting service for a personal or business web-site? Would you recommend one?

Looks good AND 10 dollars less per month than others I've seen. Would you happen to know if it has adequate bandwidth for a small business site? My experience there is limited. I'd like to know if people will have plenty of access to the site at 2,000 mb.

Thanks for the recommendation.

I work for a large web hosting company(Interland), that being said there a lot of decent companies out there. It really depends most on what you are looking for and what kind of computer knowledge you have. Start Logic out of Texas has some really good prices on their VPS systems, the catch is you need to be pretty experienced in Unix for it to be worth your while. We as well as others offer a starter type package that has a sitebuilder interface that does most of the work for you. Without knowing what you are wanting to do, I can't be more specific.

I can design pages and only want a simple site (sans javascript, etc.) for a small, regional magazine. I want a few e-mail accounts (5 is enough), plenty of storage space, and enough access where people won't get stalled on the site. This for REALLY cheap, but REALLY dependable, too. Thanks for your suggestions. No Unix expert here.

This is a good place to find lots of different providers based on Criteria that you select:

Thanks for everyone who has responded and been so helpful. I'll probably sign up for service tomorrow. It can be a real maze trying to determine which service is "for real" with so many out there.
