Editor's Bottom Line:
For better or worse, one thing that sets MyHosting apart from other providers is that they do not provide dedicated servers. Still, they address that in their comparison pages. With their two data centers that are connected to fiber backbones, MyHosting has high marks for reliability. They partner with Microsoft Corporation, Cisco Systems, Inc., Intel Corporation, MCI Canada/Verizon Business, VSNL International, Tucows Inc. and Network Solutions.

Variety of features

Myhosting.com offers a wide variety of features from building your site down to protecting and growing with it. Had my site go down 2 times but nothing to serious and I still don't know why. More pricey than other hosting companies.

Easy sign up process

Recently signed up to myhosting.com. Love the easy sign up process and the online support. Would have liked a bit description about their products rather than selling it. Haven't experienced any issues with reliability and/or down-times. Features looks exciting although haven't tried most of them yet.
