Does anyone here have there own website? If so which webhost do you use and have you had any significant experience with certain hosts?

Cheers.

Sorry this is the best way I could put across what I meant. I meant 'those hosts which you should look out for'. Positive or negative.

Ask Gino since he found somewhere cheap to host shit... or did he just get a domain name and host it on his own server??  Ummm. Answer this question Glol.

Pretty sure he's hosting it on his own box.

NZism is hosted by dreamhost, but it's possibly overkill for a simple site. You basically get a ridiculous beastly host for $9US per month. Has the occasional downtime (as people may have noticed), but they have an RSS feed for what's happening with their system which is really useful from an admin perspective.

http://www.dreamhost.com/

Actually, come to think of it, I work at a web hosting company and am a reseller, lol. I can probably hook you up for almost nothing. As long as you have the domain. Which I can possibly also sort out for you for a fee depending on what kind of domain you're after.

I'm on dreamhost too - shit is good - very cheap and has practically anything you could want (assuming you're not running some sort of .NET/ASP site)

Cheers man. James and I are thinking of relaunching our card game site.

So I'll let him know.

Thanks.

I have a VPS with www.hawkhost.com.

Smaller company than Dreamhost but very good. All their servers are with Softlayer.
They have a great reputation out there.

They also use Litespeed instead of just Apache, even for their shared/reseller hosting.

This site can be helpful when doing research into a webhost:

Dreamhost is prob a safe bet though based on Alan/Eru's experience.

Is that just with a normal ISP plan? I thought that was against T&C's for most ISPs?

In that case I made everything up.

We use Softlayer for our work servers - shit is really good, although we pay for physical machines, so it's expensive as.

LOL
I don't think it's that big of a deal in NZ where most people's upload speeds dont even reach a MB. :(

Yeah, hawkhost does the same thing. Its pretty cool on the softlayer blog they've been posting progress on one of the
new data centers in San Jose they're building (my VPS is in a Dallas data center) - starting back here:
