Need suggestions for a new company to host my domain

Hi

I have been with my current domain hosting company for nearly 20 years...but recently they have fallen badly...nobody will answer phones, emails, etc.
Time to move on.

So I am looking for a good, reliable hosting company to move my domain too.
Simple email & website...and need easy access to the website to update & add pages.

If it matters, the registrar of the domain is network solutions.

Suggestions appreciated.
Thanks.

I used joker.com for years - still recommend them. The website is simple and they include many features for free (e.g., dynamic DNS) that others charge for. The only reason I left and now use Namecheap is because Namecheap also supports two factor authentication.

I have used godaddy, they are one of the biggest ones. Haven't had any problems so far, after a couple of years. Email has been fine too.

Just checked out joker.com.
It "tastes" like they are based in europe....if servers are based there also does that slow things down at all?

Yes, they're Swiss. I never noticed any delays of any kind.

I haven't had any problems with Bluehost, though there are probably cheaper options out there. Also haven't had to deal much with their support reps. In my mind that's a good thing, but it means I can't really report back on responsiveness, etc.

stablehost.com has been good to me. I got in on a lifetime promotion, so I pay like $25 a year, but even their regular prices aren't bad.

I use Zoho for both. I can't complain for the low price of free.

They also have easy management of sites on services like Weebly, Squarespace and WIX. Cheap and simple, plus all their domains come with free privacy guard.

Just transferred three domains to Google. Literally took 20 minutes, which was about four days less than Namecheap.

Update: I just noticed a new option for two factor auth on joker.com. Supports several methods including google authanticator. No SMS support though.

I use Weebly and like them so far. They're pretty good for simple sites, and their customer support is far better than godaddy. Pretty inexpensive as well.
