    Which of these 3 Web Hosts is best?

    I need a reliable host, but ofcourse, it must be cheap. I found these 3, does anyone have good/bad experiences with them?

    They seem good, but if u have a look at dream hosting, they do a better package for half the price of hosting-unlimiteds basic package. Im so tempted....

    My bros site is with dream-hosting its coming up to a year now. The only down time was recently like day monkey but it was fixed quickly. Apparently it was caused by them installing some software requested by a customer. which to me sounds very good of them. I would choose dream-hosting again as its the cheapest...
    personally i think all three are similar companies.

    I didnt check the others but it has cpanel and fantastico so you can install things like phpnuke mambo os and coppermine easy. You get unlimited subdomains too. Look to see how much they charge if you go over your limit.

    To me that superhosting seems dodgy... as you get the domain free from them.
    What happens if you want to change do they own it? I would check that out.

    I would compare all the small details, like i said before sub domains how much they charge for going over your bandwidth limit.

    They dont charge for going over, and they dont complain. They complain about the usual stuff such as warez and suchlike (will shut your site down). You own the domain and the guy who runs it (nick) is a nice guy (gave me a years free hosting cause he forgot to renew my site). Been with them for 2 years now.

    Subdomains and extra email addresses, just send an email and within 24 hours its all be sorted. No charges

    Thats super-hosting seems really dodgy, too good to be true.

    Are there any reviews of the place?
