Good Web hosting companies

OK, I'd like to set up some webspace for my family. The .mac idea is intriguing but it seems really expensive for what you get, and I've read in forums that it sort of doesn't work as advertised and people are ticked. $100 a year for 100mb of space is pretty steep from what I've seen.

So what companies do you folks use for your webhosting services. I don't need to run a business or anything, just a little bit of space for me and the kids to learn how to set up and manage webspace. Plus I could post pics and files to share with others. Any recommendations or "stay away from" warnings?

All I know is NOT gate.com. I work for someone who goes through them. Something is down like 50% of the time.

www.dreamhost.com is who I use for the last year or so, never a issue and they upped the bandwidth and space 3x since I had them and no additional charges.

Re: Good Web hosting companies

I don't know about dream host, I use www.1and1.com for my sites: dane-michael.com and DNR-music.com and I've never had issues.
They have scaleable options to fit your level of need. Down time for me has been non exisitant and the packages start from 4.99 on up.
Many times that includes domain registry as well.

I use www.totalchoicehosting.com for 5 sites and am considering www.vizaweb.com for new ones. There are several decent companies in the $5/mo range.
