Having burnt my fingers with a couple of web hosts, and finally
decided to host my own web site, I have one major piece of advice
regarding this:

Get a personal recommendation.

Don't sign up with any hosting service unless you have advice from
someone you trust who has used that service and been happy with it.
I'm sure good hosts aren't uncommon, but nor are bad hosts, and it's
easy to get caught up with a lot of hassles and outages.

BTW, don't take the fact that I host my own site as a negative
recommendation for every hosting company out there. My requirements
are somewhat unusual - I want to host a MUD, not just a web site.
Hosts that let you do THAT much are usually quite expensive :)
