Just to chime in with my $0.02CAD, I have been using both Hostgator and
Dreamhost for the last year and have been happy with both.


I have had several times where I have need to contact service at Hostgator
and have had excellent service every time. The one instance, I sent an email
to service, realised that I had not put in the required info so sent a
second email. The problem was solved before I could finish the second email.

I have had some downtime over the past year with them, but nothing out of
the ordinary and they have always been very prompt to solve the problem. I
highly recommend them.

As for Dreamhost, if you need space and bandwidth for your site, then this
is the one to pick. They increase both on a weekly basis.
