With two companies that line up almost identical side by side the recommendation has to come down to experience and guarantees.

I noticed that performance and reliability were not part of the criteria you included in your review. And the comments about customer service sound more like a press release than a review based upon any investigation. Is there are reason for that?
As a customer of Startlogic for a number of years, I can tell you that this year is my last. Performace and uptime have steadily declined. I was willing to trade the poor customer service for the price, as long as the site was mostly up, but that has become less and less the case. So as I begin my quest for a new, reliable host, performance are reliability are things I want to hear about.
