In a recent post you told us that you are new Linux and that you just installed CentOS. I would urge you to get acquainted with CentOS properly, both as user and as admin, before you move on to hosting. If you don't you run the risk of having your machine defaced, abused and possibly compromised without you even knowing it happened. That's probably not the answer you wanted to hear but learning things the right way takes time reading and practising.

so if you had to choose between let's say servint.com, Bluehost or Arvixe, which one you'll go for? or any other one which you tried?

I am basically very careful when it comes to moving to another host because of bad experience.

My current host is dreamhost and I happy with them (except with some limitation) but I would like to move to Centos for compatibility reasons.

I don't have any experience as a customer with any of the CentOS webhosts listed in the article.

I have met and worked with persons who work for InmotionHosting and for Web Hosting Hub and they impressed me very favorably, but that's not the same as being a customer. (InmotionHosting is more oriented towards business customers; Web Hosting Hub is designed more for small and personal sites.)

I use GoDaddy's Linux hosting service for my own site and have been very satisfied with them for the past four years, but I don't know which flavor of Linux they use. The few times I have had to call their tech support, I found them knowledgeable and responsive.
