There are some great replies on this thread.
I have used bluehost and looked at hostgator, however for what I needed for business, it had to be GVO / Pure Leverage. The reasons are many and I have included a few below
GVO, has great hosting, with fantastic support ( in my humble opinion better than bluehost). They also include some awesome wordpress templates each month for marketing purposes.
Alongside this, they have a brilliant marketing suite of tools in Pure Leverage, which TBH in over 15 years of marketing online and using other list builders such as AWeber, Get Resposne and MailChimp, their marketing suite of tools is unrivalled.
They also cater heavily towards facebook marketing and list builkding with them is pretty easy, plus again the support is excellent and the payplan brilliant as well
So for those few, among many reasons, GVO / PL gets my voteApplied education
