    I've used godaddy and have been happy with their service for several years.  I think a lot of them are about the same in what they offer.  I'd take a look at the prices vs. service in their packages and tend to go for the best deal.

    You may also want to look at any documentation or discussion forums they may have open to the public, that will give you some insight into how good their tech support is.

    I'm not saying godaddy is the best, but in about 6-7 years they have never given me a reason to want to go elsewhere.

    I currently use Linode, but it's not for beginners. You have to be very familiar with Linux in order to fully utilize Linode.

    For starts, I would suggest one of the two:
    Low Budget/Traffic: HostGator
    High Budget/Traffic: MediaTemple

    I have used MediaTemple in the past, and I am friends with some of the staff. Linode has the fastest customer service around, but again, unless you're very familiar with Linux, it's not for you. And HostGator. It's just one of the most popular budget hosts with a decent reputation.

    If you're starting a WordPress blog, I have a hub you may be interested in (Backup WordPress Using Dropbox).

    Also, I highly suggest away from GoDaddy. They are a domain registrar, and domains are their forte, not hosting. You will read a thousand negative reviews of GoDaddy hosting for every good one. It's always best to seperate your domain registrar and your hosting provider anyway.

    I use SBI service for my websites. They are very helpful in building a successful online business, even for a newbie.  Everything is included in their package.

    I use http://HomePageUniverse.com

    They provide name services, name parking, name forwarding and cloaking and mail forwarding.  A mail box costs extra.  15 gig of server space is about $49U.S. per year. and they say it has unlimited traffic.  I expect there is some fine print if you suddenly get thousands of visitors a day but they say it is unlimited traffic.

    I've been using them for years and am very happy with the service and cost.

    I use one.com

    Easy to use, reasonably priced, great live support, huge choice of templates or the option to build your own.

    Have a look: www.one.com

    Good luck :-)

    Although it states businesses, its open to interpretation...
