    Actually one of the main perpetrators back in the day was Namecheap. That's why I'm so surprised to see people recommending them again as if the last 7 years or so never happened.

    I've been registering my new domains with Google and it's pretty smooth. No fluff. No BS. Just registration with free privacy. Admin them from your Google account just like everything else Google.

    I have personally hosted with all the shared, VPS, and cloud hosting companies (except Rackspace, I have heard from many people they're very good). I have only hosted with Singlehop for dedicated servers. Now, if you want it to be easy and don't have much experience, go with shared hosting. Those companies will help you through the process to help get your site online.
    Is this your personal list or is there a source to link to?

    Personal list based on experiences, reviews online, support, etc. Rackspace took the last two due to their support as GoDaddy took #1 because of their docs and how easy their DNS management is.

    It sometimes seems to me that the hosting company that everyone recommends one year is the one everyone is saying to avoid a few years later. HostGater would be an example of this. I believe the ownership has changed which is probably why the change in sentiment. They used to be a company that everyone liked and now I hear more negative than positive. Still if you pick a host that is good and the ownership changes it is sort of a pain to keep switching. I would suggest people avoid what I have done. I have 16 domains with GoDaddy, 3 or 4 with Network Solutions (who I really don't like much) and one or two other places. I have hosting accounts with maybe 6 or 7 places. It is a real pain to keep up with what is where and I would strongly suggest you find one domain place and one hosting company and stay there. I really think everyone has given me good service however and I haven't had problems with any of them.

    HostGator was the first paid hosting company I was with due to their 1 cent hosting. Nothing was wrong with them other than the fact live chat wait times are usually 30 - 60 minutes and their prices are a little up there. If those two issues were resolved they'd be a good company.
