[SASAG] Seeking a New Web Host Home

Check out liquidweb.com. I had a shared virtual account there, which was 
  A++ for support and service. They are a smidge pricey, but I think you 
get what you pay for (I'm a veteran of both ISP providing and web 
hosting companies, trust me on that). I upgraded to a VPS ($60/month), 
and love it. I had a couple minor hiccups, mostly from not knowing 
CPanel at first, and their support was ace.

There was only one actual problem, and that was an automatic Cpanel 
upgrade got hosed by Cpanel themselves. Liquidweb had it back up in no 
time. If  you want opinions on a given host, I will be happy to offer 
advice off-list by direct email, if I happen to know anything about them 
from years of working with a variety...

Liquidweb's shared plan I was on was #$24/month; VPS's for new plans I 
believe are in the $60/month neighborhood. Near as I can tell they don't 
oversell, at all.
