I currently have my VD on my own server, and am thinking of just moving to a hosting company.  Cheaper, faster, less hassle et. al.  Anyone recommend a particular company?  I purchased my URL at domain.com, and they have hosting plans...waiting to hear back on some info from them (questions on SQL Server, .Net framework, etc.).  Any suggestions much appreciated.

With regards,

I use http://www.asphostcentral.com . They seem to support blogegine just fine. I chose them because they're cheap. It's not easy to find a good cheap host.  My biggest complaint is that my plan only has 1 mssql database, but you get what you pay for.  Also, the control panel they use, plesk. Isn't the best for .NET stuff.

I'm still hoping for more responses...what about the 'preferred' advertisor on the .Net blog engine site - http://www.discountasp.net/index.aspx?  Any experiences here?

I run several BE instances on inexpensive GoDaddy's economy hosting for a couple of years, never had any issues. More expansive plans with sub-domain feature have some problems though, but for a simple blog economy plan at GoDaddy is very good option.

I am using discountasp.net and I am very happy with it. I am using their IIS7 hosting with BlogEngine.NET 1.5. They have a very quick turnaround for answering support questions and I think their offering is competitive with GoDaddy, if you consider the same bandwidth and storage sizes. Discountasp.net does not offer MySQL hosting for IIS7. That's the only disadvantage in my opinion.

I use DiscountASP.net too! I have used them for about 6 years and found their support excellent. My Blog is http://www.dafran.net/blog, which I only just started a few weeks ago.
