You can probably find something here: Host Search dot Com .. You specify your requirements, features, price range, etc...

Check user reviews, full feature lists, etc.

Also, make sure you're not going to get stuck with a lemon -- visit Your Host Sucks to see hosts to stay away from.

Well, for my hosting needs I always choose http://www.bakahost.com I am not very technical with this sort of stuff like apache, etc. so they always help me out and such... i am running a game server with them right now and its wicked fast.. everyone (including dial upers) -ewww, get low pings.. i love it
.. but yeah, they have great rates and 100 % uptime basically.. ive used it for about 4 months now and its never gone down once.. i recommend them

bakahost

that bakahost place looks pretty good. i emailed them about their pricing and they responded in 10 mins. not bad, not bad at all. the prices are really cheap for what you get. i think i am gonna go with the basic package 1.3gig 256megabyte ram 20gig harddrive and 50gig transfer for 69.99 a month.

i am not really sure what to run on it though. linux or fbsd? what would be better? they offer almost every flavor of linux and unix preinsalled. i have never used freebsd although i have heard it is more stable for hosting then debian. (what i run at home)

any suggestion?

because if i pay for it and i manage it then i want to have what i want. :P thats why i am gonna get a dedicated server, so i can DO what i want when i want how i want it. i think i am gonna go with bakahost, hackers_ is right they have the lowest prices on dedicated servers that i have ever seen on the net.

Indeed. Let's close this so no one else revives it.
