The most highly rated (but expensive) web host in the world is verio. They are the best because they are the most reliable and they offer the best support. From CalicutNet’s experience with web hosting, often tech support is more vital than even the cost of the hosting or other great features they might offer.
Tech support is key in web hosting.
It is not often that a hosted site goes down if you are with a fairly good host. However tech support is on an, “excellent, good, bad, ugly” scale across web hosting facilities. Hence this is the thing you must focus on. Tech support is what which can make or break you hosting than anything else. A great hosting company would do you no good if their tech support is abysmal.
