    I solved some of my questions (and edited this post) but I'm still strugling to choose my web hosting...

    :confused: DOTMAC? :
    I have a .mac account for years and I am not planning to abandon it, but I heard they are not very good on hosting (very slow in Europe, no technical support, and some other restrictions) Should I use it since I am already paying for that? Or it would be worthy to have a proper hosting for my websites?

    :confused: OTHER POSSIBILITIES :
    A Small Orange Lots of people love them in the forums, but lately I found some complaints. Besides that the price is not that good...
    DreamHost Sounds good, but is the most expensive of my list. Is it worthy?
    LunarPages Sounds good also. Good price.
    AN Hosting Amazing offer! Almost too good to be true... Does anybody here use their services? Any comment about it?

    Thank you very much for any tip, hint, info or help (and sorry about my bad English)

    If you don't need much fancy server-side stuff going on, .Mac is good for the basics. But if you need things like MySQL, Ruby on Rails, mailing lists, etc., you may want to use another hosting company.

    I've been using Surpass Hosting for several years. They are very cheap and have awesome plans. Check it out.
