Close friend of mine runs it, Very fast, Very professional and very affordable.

However, you might want to remember that 99.9% uptime is generally router uptime, so most hosts may have problems with their software and it won't count against their uptime. 99.9% uptime doesn't mean your site will be visible 99.9% of the time.

I signed up with LunarPages today. They seem to have a pretty good deal and they are with the BBB (so they should probably resolve issues fairly). But their phone support sucks - you're on hold forever. You can't win them all I guess.

Phone support is the first thing I look for... if you have to wait, that either means there are too many problems, and too many people are calling in, or they're not staffed well enough which means they don't care... either way, that would be a huge red flag for me...

Yeah, I wan't happy about it but I was pressed for time in transferring from Go Daddy without any downtime. Their tech support via email may be somewhat decent - About a 2 hour reponse time. I guess I just have to settle for now. I do have some comfort in knowing that they are with the BBB - I will file a complaint in a second if I feel that I am being blown off.
