after two weeks of the worst 1and1.com experience imaginable (100gigs of “lost” data and am currently 12 hours into a “server crash” that has all my sites down completely) I’m looking for a new hosting service. I’ve been on my current host for over 3 years so I haven’t really kept tabs on who is good and where the good buys are.
As Sindre has stated you may want to look into the list of hosting providers in the Magento wiki.
You can then search for reviews of these hosting providers here, at WebHostingTalk, HostJury and Google. Be sure to avoid those top 10 sites as they are normally full of affiliate links and fake reviews.
