I'm looking for recommendations regarding hosting possibilities. I'm developing a simple site.
For Unix-based hosting (FreeBSD), I used and loved Pair. The only reason I left them was because I needed Windows-based ASP.net hosting. I chose ORCS Web, which was expensive a tad more expensive, but their service has been really top notch for my needs.
I second that pair reccomendation. I can't comment on customer service as they just implemented phone customer service. Their e-mail cust. service is very good.
I've been happy with ReadyHosting. 500 mb of Windows 2000 hosting plus extras for $99 per year.
My site is hosted at PowWeb.
For rock bottom prices, I can recommend 123ehost.com. I haven't had too much need for customer service, though the couple of emails I've sent have gotten pretty quick responses (well under a half hour). I only use very basic hosting (web and email, no scripting, though they can provide PHP and ASP for an extra fee), but I certainly can't complain about the price: $50/year.

A friend of mine recently mentioned angelfire as a free web host. You get the angelfire popups, but they host your site (with domain) for free. Here's my friend's site:
