My first host ever !
Back in the days when finding hosting that can accept payments other than paypal was really hard and thank god i stumbled upon smokyhosts.
I am hosted on their shared plan , the smallest one as the site i have is not really bandwith consuming or anything.
In the last 10 months we had about 1 hour of downtime , i really can say that my first host turned out to be one of the best hosts i have used s far.
Their CP is filled with everything you need from script installers to awstats and other scripts.
Speaking of speed and load times they are great at least for me . You can really find any of your needed answers on their forums as they also offer post4hots . If any maintenance is scheduled you will be let know via forums early enough to prepare .
Looking from my standpoint i am 100% sure i will continue to host my site with them as long as i have interest to have it .
Staff is very nice and you can also speak with the admin himself whenever you feel the need to .
Great host that i would recommend to anyone !
