    What host are you currently using? Do you recommend them? I am currently using Empire Hostings and I really like them. They are cheap and I have not witnessed any down time.

    Business Advice Forum is hosted on a VPS from Servint, they are a little expensive but their service is great and they are reliable.

    I have a dedicated box with iweb. I've been very happy with this solution after numerous bad experiences with shared hosting.

    I'd move though, if I could find green hosting that supported dedicated boxes -- and was good.

    Thanks realitybites.in, I've had a look at Amazon's S3 here, it sounds like a great solution. What is their reliability and support like in your opinion?

    Thanks for the feedback realitybites.in, I may look at them in the future, I feel that our current hosting is very expensive given the size of the forum, so it is good to be aware of other options.

    Thanks realitybites.in, I will keep them in mind. I have no immediate plans to move but I do like to have options available especially as money becomes tighter and I need to cut down on costs.

    We have used a number, depends on what you are looking for in a host.
    Once you start to get some real traffic you want a decent host.
    Surpass seem to be doing us a good deal at the moment with dedicated.

    I will suggest you to check the review of the company on reviewcenter and WHT, and then decide your host.

    Yes, that is a must when deciding your host. A bad host can really effect the reputation of the site.
