As we can see here, most people choose HostGator or Media Temple :)

Need more think about this. Thanks for your current opinions.

Seems to a common theme in my response but here are some questions i normally throw out when someone ask about what kind of hosting and who:

1. Who are your target audience ? 2. Where is the majority of your visitors coming from ? Which country. 3. how many unique visitors you ge per day and per month. What kind of bandwidth are you serving per month. 4. How much would you loss in terms of $$ if your website/web host goes down for 1hour or 1 day ? (may not be easy to come up quickly but with some digging and reflection on your own analytics you should be able to put a $ figure to it)

That will help you get started to pick which VPS hosting company. Obviously you wanna pick one which is closer to what you answered in question 1 and 2. That’ll serve your content quicker without needing CDN. But hey, if you have the $$. CDN all the way.

Then you think about how much you willing to spend. That will narrow down what type of VPS you will consider.

The million dollar question is what is the cheapest and the best ? It’ll be each to it’s own context. I’m using a VPS from RamNode, best support for the price i’m paying. They are not the greatest, but it fit my bill and serve my purpose.

My father uses (not sure if he still does) Go Daddy – godaddy.com. Prices seem decent, although I don’t know too much about this stuff.

GoDaddy is very good, I use it for all my domains, customer support is great, and web interface makes it easy to install WP.
