Then again, not all cheap hosts are horrible. Some do provide excellent services.

I'd never say cheap means bad, look at us (Arvixe) for example. From a mere $5 per month (2 coffees?) you get a huge number of freebies such as a free domain name, backed with numerous guarantees, 24/7 support over multiple methods etc...

I'd say we're cheap, I'd also say we're a very good and reputable provider.

Checking the companies support before actually renting a server used to be my indication of a good hosting company

I personnally know that many cheap hosting company have a standar quality. They are not bad because they are cheap, people need to know the difference for this. Many hosting are Overpricing the space and customer should be aware of this

They're owned by the same parent company so that makes them just as equally bad?

They're run by different management teams (yes of course with some input from EIG) but overall FatCow and BlueHost are very different hosting brands. For example the control panel, BlueHost uses cPanel whilst FatCow is using the EIG vDeck panel etc...

but sales and support for all EIG brands are fed from the same central location

In my opinion it really comes down to what you want to host. If your hosting a site for a small gaming guild/clan then the cheapest route would probably be the best option, but if your hosting something that demands up time and performance then paying the extra buck won't hurt.

Hosting is critical to some and not to others. But why have hosting if you don't mind it been down. Price can give a good indication of quality unlimited is always a warning word. Do research and word of mouth and recommendations. Service comes at a price, nothing is free. Its all a of balance.

Cheap does not always translate into bad quality. Some hosts will discount products, which will make them look cheap. Best to read reviews or phone the host and question them about their services so you are content that they are offering value for money instead of cheap.

Try on a short term them make a decision, but if you buy solely on price you will probably move on quickly.

You do know that Bluehost and Fatcow are practically the same company right? So same quality behind both of them.

It really depends on your budget and what you are looking for. Generally most shared hosting plans will give you unlimited space/bandwidth. If you need dedicated CPU/memory, a VPS would be ideal or if you need more than that, then a dedicated server would the best. I don't think paying more will get you better hosting, it really comes down to what your requirements are and your budget.

I guess it depends on how valuable your website is to you. If it's mission critical then I wouldn’t even consider shared hosting and therefore I'd expect to pay more for a VPS or even a dedi. For shared hosting I'd pay a higher than 'average' price if the host could show me they have good monthly up-times of at least 99.8%. I do not think 'cheap' necessarily means you'll get a poor service. Some hosts offer cheap plans because they provide no support other than ensuring the servers are up and certainly worth considering IMO.

Price may not be directly proportional to quality. Sometimes you are paying premium just for a brand
