While Bluehost is price higher than some in the web hosting space, the price is justified when one takes a close look at data transfer speeds. For users with web sites chock full of graphics and photos, the extra $3/month is worth when you know that your site will be loaded quickly and efficiently.

GoDaddy will attract users based on its brand-awareness and popularity but the bells and whistles stop there. Pay close attention to the features of each plan and don't choose the cheapest plan you find. This is though a decent choice for the home user who doesn't require lots of disk space or eCommerce support.

Host Papa

Read Full Review
While light on features, HostPapa does provide options for users who really aren't sure how long they want to commit. Essentially, you choose your price based on the length of commitment you are willing to sign for. Moderate pricing, basic services combined with a green hosting plan makes this a decent choice for intermediate web developers.

If you're looking for straight-forward web hosting and web site design services at an affordable rate, Just Host is a good choice. We can't speak for the customer service but comments on the WWW have wavered on the friendliness and attentiveness of Just Host customer service representatives.

While the peace-of-mind features (virus scan and automated backup) are really nice to have, these do not outshine the high price combined with limited options. With a cap on data storage and with only one MySQL database included, this is not the choice for business users. For individuals though, this could be a reasonable option - but pay attention to the price.
