Maybe they called it organic because its closest to seeing it in real life?

Amused to see so many Dreamhost recommendations considering all the Dreamhost former clients that I ended up hosting over the 5 years I was in the business. Interesting. I'm a huge, huge, HUGE fan of HostingMatters.com - they have been FANTASTIC to work with and I can not recommend them enough. They are wonderful to work with and the uptime is perfect.

webstrikesolutions.com has been hosting my sites for years. At $30 for the first year (that's all!) and $8.50/mo after that, they are a bargain. However, there's nothing "cheap" about their support.

Been using ICDSoft.com for a few years. No problems.

Here in Reading, UK we have been using a small reseller Web-Tastic (http://www.web-tastic.com). We have a fairly standard hosting account 200MB of space, PHP, MySQL, email, SPAM filter, etc. What is great is that we get good help / advice from 'real' people.

I've been very pleased with the unique mix of features offered by Westhost (westhost.com). I've tried a few other hosts but always end up longing for the level of control Westhost gives me over my accounts. Their virtual private server setup (on all plans) isn't technically pure "root" access but it is very close and sufficiently "root" for just about every need I've ever had. 24/7 live chat tech support rocks too.

Well, I landed on SiteFlip a few years back and have enjoyed the features. I never seem to need tech support, so can't rave about that. But the reliability is very, very good. I checked out some of the other hosting services mentioned. In my opinion, the only one worth re-mentioning is Site5. If something ever happened to make me move from SiteFlip, then I'll be going to Site5. In fact, the only major difference that I can see is that SiteFlip does not support mailing lists , and that pound-for-pound (kind of hard to gauge because pricing schemes are so different) Site5 costs a bit more. For a personal site or a business site that doesn't need mailing lists, keep SiteFlip in mind. If you need mailing lists, consider Site5 (though I still think you can find for much cheaper the same web hosting features as Site5 offers with disk and bandwidth options that will meet your needs). As for ThirdSphere... just as full-featured, but even more costly. Sheesh... the site reads like an infomercial! ;-)

I resell. So my design clients have a real person to call when things are a bit off. Someone who has control over everything. They don't want to think about it, they pay me for that. I moved 27 clients from _____ to Site 5 in January of this year. Their tech support literally soars above the other 15 or so hosts I have worked with in the past, they give me plenty of space and bandwidth for a very reasonable cost. Unlimited sites and let me oversell my space and bandwidth if I chose to. (which I don't). I think I'm paying $240/year for 100GB/monthly bandwidth and 15GB space. No doubt the deal is now better than that. As a reseller I have control right down to NS records, NS zone templates, cron jobs and the like as well as shell. Because they run PHP through a CGI wrapper I do have a wee bit of trouble. Just to change my 'path' i have to duplicate php.ini and put it in my root. Can't use .htaccess for that. (small arggg) Besides that one tiny issue.... they kick butt. Especially techie 'Vince S.' The guy solves every problem when no one else knows how. He knows everything. They are not like other hosts I have had over the years, the do not say 'can't be done'. They always figure out a way and have solved issues I had for years with several other hosts in no time flat. For reselling, they get my thumbs up plus 4. And my clients don't know it but they need that. And they have all the one click install stuff if your into that.

NetworkRedux has been especially good over the last year (although prior to that there used to be a lot of down time). I also like RedwoodVirtual for certain things (VPS for like $10). I also have a budget account with MediaTemple. I had a few problems at first, but they seem to be getting better all the time.
