Here I go.... Help needed with picking host

Well, I couldn't tell you if they are good or not, however just in general...

If you were to tell me that you had $6,000 and wanted to buy a new car, you'd have a grand total of exactly 1 choice to pick from. Every other car would be out of that price range. Would it be good? It would be good considering it is a new car and you didn't leave yourself any other options.

When you have high requirements and a low budget, you're not going to have that many choices (if a choice), and you're going to get what you pay for. If reliablity is a concern, lower your requirements and enable yourself to have more choices. If it isn't a concern, then you have a provider who matches your needs, go with them.
But how do you know if a host is reliable? I could be very expensive and still be very unreliable.

Thats why I ask here... maybe some people with experiences with these hosts or hearth something about them...

You are correct. More expensive doesn't necessaily mean more reliable. I'll let members with experience make suggestions (as I don't use a shared host).
Verio is very expensive, so they should offer great services and they are one of the biggest around. Its more than $10 per gig of transfer, I'd find it hard indeed to make money off that.
Hi AttiDude,

You have to try to find out whether a host is reliable.. if you are not sure, make sure you sign up with those with trial period and do not tight you for a year (for instant) and worst case, you can dump and move on (only have to load and reload to new host).

good luck in your search!
