Chain of Hosts, three paid, one free, which is best?
Okay, I have a shaky history with webhosts. But here is my story to date. I have used several free hosts to date and never really was satisfy with any of them. The best offer I ever good was from RapidSpace. They were good for quite a while, friendly staff.
A bit later I got a sponsership from the owner of Nayble Hosting. They hosted my website for a while, paid for the domain and everything. After about five months the host vanished. Just vanished. The staff was nice friendy and not pressuring.
Now I spent time with free hosts for quite a while again. Than I decided to finally use Elixant (http://www.elixant.com) after seeing it so many times. I was happy with their sources. A fun host. Friendly staff. Good people, nice community. Elixant is now closing and my request to stay on their one server was denied.
I took a break from Elixant before, I went to HostGator, and their service was horrible. I expierenced a lot of downtime, mainly in cPanle that there was an error or something. Always the server I was on hit it. They denied it several times. I had to leave.
My latest host, first time I got a reseller to has been with GlobixNet. GlobixNet's owner has been very kind to me lately. As always. In the last 48 days I expeirenced no downtime, and so it was like 100%, more than any host I have ever been on. Their serverspeed is hella fast. I am happy with them, and they are my current host to this date.
GlobixNet has a considerate and kind owner. With this host, so far I have no complaints, even CHMOD777 is allowed.
Out of my expierence there are three hosts total I probably would recommend to anyone, that they are worth it. They are:
RapidSpace (Now closed) - Friendly staff, VERY friendly, stayed with them for nearly two years. Fast load, but CHMOD777 was not allowed and no RoR and stuck with PHP3 >.< yeah
Elixant - Amazing host. Amazing. They had Ruby on Rails and PHP 5 running along side 4. The staff was friendly. But the host is now closing. No new signups http://www.elixant.com
GlobixNet - The latest host I been with, as a client. Fast load, faster than I ever remember any host being. Amazing uptime, more than all my previous hosts. Kind staff. Customer support is good. Amazing service. I got a reseller, and I am even allowed to resell their GameServers < which is amazing. http://www.globixnet.com

One closed already for some reason. One is closing. My latest I am a major client as I recieve a large amount of hits on my website which is an educational site.
So yup. GlobixNet is my latest recommendation. I am happy to convert anyone to them. I know their pricing structure pretty well.
