    I've had the worst experience ever with my current host (webserve.ca) - horrible tech support and lots of downtime.

    I have canceled with them - expires in June - and I'm looking for a new host. i'm doing my research now but it's hard to get unbiased reviews..most of the reviews i've read seem fake -written by the host or its competitor.

    Can anyone suggest a good host - reliable yet affordable - for a personal site. I do about 25GB/month of bandwidth (52GB was the peak) but I only need about 2 GBs of storage, 1-3 domains, blog and CMS galleries.

    If you have had a personal favorable experience with a host for the past 12 months please let me know.
