I always tell people to register their name and host at GoDaddy.Com. I've never had a problem with them. I do have one client, a new one, who hosts at Network Solutions. I've just began working on their site so I really can't give an honest opinion of them yet but no problems so far.
I've got a couple sites with the domain name registered at GoDaddy and site hosted on our own server and one registered at GoDaddy and hosted by Zenfolio. Never had a problem with any of those either.

Woops, just discovered this reply now. I should have given my referral link, hahaha. Well I had a look at Godaddy but I still prefer the interface of Namecheap. And yes, PayPal is vital, at least for me. I currently have about 5 personal domains and more for customers, but I register those on their own account, even if they want a turnkey solution. It's only fair and in their best interest.
I saw some people here that like their hoster because it gives out lifelong domains for free. Just don't do that!. They, not you own the domain and if you want to change hoster because of a better deal elsewhere, or they go out of business, or they suddenly raise prices... you lose your domain. In fact, you're a hostage. The investment in SEO, links etc... will all be lost. A domain under an independent registrar is under 9$ per year!
I can't comment on other hosters than hostgator since I didn't try them. I made a comparison last week with the baby croc plan of hostgator and a similar plan from godaddy, and godaddy offered much less: one domain, limited bandwidth and limited space.

Blogger has adfree sites too. Yeah right, unless you read the small print. They won't touch a site with 10 hits per day, but back in 2005, I had a very successful blog about the fusion between tech and politics, and after been slashdotted, it caught 6,000 unique hits per day... and there were the ads, popups and invisible divs you can't block all over. My blog became unreadable at moments.
Geocities: watch out... the moment you consume a (very low) transfer volume per 24h, the site is unreachable unless you pay their "premium plan" which is more expensive than an unlimited baby croc plan at hostgator.
00webhost - watch out: that's not a hoster at all but a clever linkfarm that deceives people by putting payed links on there with referral codes to free sites like yahoo/geocities/etc... just can't stand those "clever" sharks.

Not. ;-) The unlimited plan is still 50% more expensive than at hostgator.com. They have blazing access speed in Pacific Asia and Europa, even if they are US-based. They also have fast and unlimited MySQL databases and unlimited domains for under 10$/month. They are also very prompt with support, especially concerning security.
Another good one seems to be bluehost.com, but I don't have any experience with them.
I use GoDaddy (for domain name) and Zenfolio for portfolio design/hosting. It has good plans, easy to use and modify and updates stuff real fast. Happy enough with the templates etc too. (My site is just launched...so it doesn't really have anything but you can look at other example sites - really good)

I would like to order a website with web hosting from Ideo Solutions AS - http://ideosolutions.no/. You know them? I choose this company because I live in Norway and it is important to me that this will be the company from that country.
