a good webhosting site?

i heard good stuff about hostmonster.com but i have never hosted my own domain before. any tips on what will be the most suitable for me?

i don't want to pay too much and this website is not gonna be that professional. its mainly for benchmarking and for gaming. i live in east coast canada and have highspeed internet 7mbps/512kbps.

thanks

I've been a totalchoicehosting.com member for several years now, and for a low price they offer a great service (24/7 support, backups, great uptime, etc). I recently signed up for anhosting.com simply to test drive another "popular" host, but so far, Im not impressed except for the space amount they provide.

hostmonster and lunarpages too

You will be happy with HostMonster they have great support and are reliable. I have a Lunarpages shared plan and I'm happy with them. I got $27 off with a coupon, Save27. I have 11 sites hosted on my plan and do not have any issues. Best of luck with your site(s).
