Do you ever have issues with your host provider? I used to have terrible problems a couple of years ago. The people who I were using were cheap (happens to be a requirement when the site doesn't make money) and that was represented by their quality of service.
I was recently reminded of how good my hosting provider is. I have been with M6.net for a couple of years and the service has always been spot on. The care of their customers is always a top priority to them (it seems more important than the bottom line) and they aren't afraid to admit a mistake. Hey, mistakes happen, but most companies say it didn't happen or point the finger elsewhere. These are the two characteristics of my hoster that I think set them apart from the rest. No wonder they have grown so much.
I have nothing but respect for M6 and I am honoured that they are sponsoring this site. If you need a great host, check them out.
