    You might want to post some basic requirements, because there are hosts that are above others in one area, but average in others.

    If you are just starting and do not think you will be that active from the start, the 'A Small Orange' is not a bad company to look into.

    Make sure your host provider has the abilities to do what is posted in link below.

    I'm not the OP... I definitely don't need hosting recommendations ;p.

    If I learned one thing about hosting ... do not go for the very cheap ones. You'll regret it.

    Just quoting what was already mention... as it easier then regurgitating. (Oh, those alerts must of gotten to you already... That was not the reason for quoting you... Must have option to quote without sending any 'Alerts') :p

    Note to self: make suggest to not send alert of message you are quoting...., but makes no sense to have this change, but then...

    There are plenty of cheap hosts that are able to keep their prices lower for shared/resellers as they make more off of other services they offer.

    Just don't expect any quality support of them, trust me, been there done that.

    Again... It depends on the host.

    There are plenty of hosts that can provide cheap hosting, and still support (Non-priority, which is almost always reserved for managed dedicated or managed VPS for -any- host) their services more then decently.

    There are also -free- hosts that provide decent service and support, depending on your needs.

    There probably are, but I wouldn't want to risk it again and I do not recommend it to anyone either.

    Knownhost is great for a good managed VPS.

    I use slicehost and linode, but you have to manage your own VPS.

    I use fdc servers, not bad really.

    I currently use http://www.asmallorange.com/ shared hosting. Those servers meet the requirements for XF.

    Shared servers are cheap but they can be unreliable at times. One thing I have noticed about shared servers is that they tend to improve over time. I think this is because the population of the server eventually stabilizes as the hosting company sells the remaining accounts on the server and boots the resource hogs.

    +1 for hostgator, excellent shared packages available.

    I agree, www. asmallorange.com you can trust, cheap, reliable, and their e-mail support is lightening fast.

    Hostgator is probably nice for support and a nice small site but don't expect to grow too much on their servers because you will soon be recieving emails/notices to upgrade to their VPS/Dedicated hosts.
