Choosing a reputable and reliable host can be challenging. Especially when good hosts go bad.
Everyone has their opinions on available hosting solutions. Many of the less-than-stellar reviews are often associated with either small companies that have little customer service or large companies whose service and/or uptime and speed have declined as they grew.
For example, Savoir Faire just left HostGator, owned by the same company that owns Bluehost, DreamHost and 60+ other hosting companies, because of service issues, site issues and performance issues, all of which declined over several years.
Speaking of Bluehost, if your site is hosted on one of their servers, you may want to talk to them about recent vulnerabilities a researcher uncovered. According to ThreatPost, one of the recently-revealed vulnerabilities could allow cybercriminals to completely take over your account.
And if you are on GoDaddy, watch for code you never installed to show up in your files.
