Before you choose a Drupal host
Take these 2 steps before choosing a host
1 Contact the hosting customer support. Ask them specifically about Drupal. If they can't answer your questions, then you're talking to the wrong company.
2 Search for problems. Try searching Google for errors or problems with your hosting company, and you'll get some interesting feedback.
Take time and choose carefully
Remember that no company is 100% perfect. Even the companies that we're going to list have caused problems for a few people we've spoken to. However, these are companies who know Drupal and have the best overall feedback from our members.
