I've used countless free and paid webhosting services in the past mainly to run paid versions of IPB and Vbulletin in the past. The reason I never went with host gator as back in the day you had to pay like $200 just for a setup-fee but this also included the price of your hosting.
I like webhosts that allow billing literally a month at a time, I can easy pay for 36/mo's but I don't look that far if the site will last that long and than it becomes literally a waste of money!
Hostgator now allows 1 month billing cycles which run for $5/mo and this includes domain registration at a $15 fee.
I've used Hostgator for about 1 month now and I'm pleased with them, I'm currently installing Concrete5(a C(ontent)M(anagement)S(ystem) what, ya thought a C(ustom)M(enu)S(ystem)?^O^) and SMF.
For the past year I've been using Godaddy while godaddy is great it doesn't allow you for path_info and most CMS's today need that, you can't do advanced Url redirection and concrete is based around that which means godaddy is useless.. if you plan on using ModX or Concrete5.
HostGator claims 99.9% uptime and I totally agree with that but I'm not on 24/7 maybe like 9/24 4-5 days a week.

Starting at $4.95/mo. There's also coupons you can look up which if you have a domain you can practicalyl get away with a free month.
I personally love them, they have plenty of available scripts available. They have incredible tech/customer support and they're one of the best hosts around for the price.
They're also highly recommended THEY'RE ALSO EXTREMELY CHEAP AND AFFORDABLE!!
Yea not much of a review but not much to say either on a host but how well they are, Godaddy is also a great site but not for one that plans on using a CMS.
Since I'm paying hgih $ for true unmetered space/bandwidth and would like to host RPG Revolutions files and give "1" staff member admin panel access to manage the files.
basically it'd be, http://rpgw.net/rpgrev/files/
you than can catagorize from there.
