I'm looking to build my own investing forum. I'll probably use phpBB software since it's free and widely used. I'm undecided on hosting sites though. I found a site with a breakdown of their top 10 hosting services. http://web-hosting-review.toptenreviews.com/
Globat.com came up number 1. They offer 1 free year of hosting with a mail-in rebate, which would make total cost on the year come out to about $33 or something. What should I be looking for in a hosting service?

Guess when Windows Server 2008 goes GA, I'm going to be taking advantage of its virtual hosting features, as well as multiple SSL keys, because I want all my websites to be viewable via SSL.
I deal with two hosts, www.mediatemple.com and www.surpasshosting.com. Surpass is a good low cost host, and media temple provides excellent service, including 24/7 phone support. So I use mt for important business sites, and surpass for the run of the mill. mt is sort of a darling of the flash design community also.
