====Overview====
I've been developing websites for over 5 years now and in that time I have had experience with a number of hosting providers. I still can't say I've found a favorite. Web hosts come in all variety of shapes and prices, as do my projects. It still is a struggle to find the right host for a particular project.

Recently, with some larger project I've helped launch, I've tried to be more systematic and thorough in vetting prospective hosts. I've set up a [[http://webhostingtalk.com/member.php?u=150556 | webhostingtalk.com account]] and documented some of my struggles and insights in [[http://phosphorusandlime.blogspot.com/search?q=hosting | my blog]]. This part of the wiki, itself, is an extension of a record I began keeping on [[http://project1020.pbwiki.com/Web%20Hosting%20Packages | another wiki]].
