try any VPS hosting if you are looking for a good one.. I could offer you 3 months free hosting if you just need something to play around on.. cpanel, unlimited domains/subdomains, mysql databases etc..

just give me a message if you are intressed.

otherwise good luck finding a good host, and I will follow this thread since I too am looking for a vps host =)

If you plan to upload static content, a site template (html,css,js,images only), then any shared hosting with good uptime (>99%) is enough for you.

If you plan to upload dynamic content, a wordpress theme (php), then you need hosting with good uptime (>99%) and enough CPU resources for your site traffic. One important thing is, do not register your domain in the hosting company, so you are free to move to other hosting company when you need it. Personally, I register my domains on GoDaddy and NameCheap.

You can always start using any shared hosting package. If you only need hosting for serving your theme demo, then a shared hosting is enough. I use HostGator and DreamHost, it is only $ 5-10 month. Once your site is popular, high traffic, and the shared hosting is not enough for you anymore (high CPU resource usage, several downtime, bandwidth issue, etc), you can start thinking to move to a VPS hosting package for $ 30-100 /month. And when a VPS is not enough for you, you can move to a Dedicated Server for $ 200+ / month.

Try shared hosting first paying just for a mont. A Small Orange and Hostgator are the best shared hosts. If you like the performance sign up for a year. Remember you can use CDNs like MaxCDN to decrease host bandwidth.

If you end up needing a VPS, KnownHost is the best VPS host and has won many hosting awards.

You can also find a lot of deals on hosting at http://www.webhostingtalk.com/
