    I need a good reliable host, that host host my main site, and succsefully run a vbulletin. I need a host that never goes down (like the one this board uses). I want it to be very fast(like the one this board uses), and I'm searching for a price range of $10 a month, bending it is ok. I need it to have:

    LOTS of bandwidth
    bout 500mb disk space
    it needs to pretty much have everything good you can get for $10
    IT NEEDS TO HAVE THE CAPIBILITY TO RUN A VB, THAT MEANS PHP, MYSQL, AND FTP ACCESS!!!!

    For vB you need to have SSH as well to reliably back up the database. Ability to run cron jobs helps a lot in that respect, too.

    Here I use http://www.hostmatters.com/ . Always fast except for crappy routing that I used to, but don't anymore, get, and when server load skyrockets due to another site suddenly getting an explosion of traffic.

    Yeah, are you? Because that doesn't look like a copy and paste job to me. That looks like someone took the time to type it.

    It also looks very suspicious that the website in your profile has a domain registered in Nexpoint Technologies' name, although they do offer "free" domains so this might be a catch. I am going to be fair and give you an opportunity to explain yourself and your post though.

    I am not affliated with them nor im advertisin for them. I just suppling information. Like i said above, i am using nexpoint so obviously i have a domain name that register by them. They DO offer the free domain name (package special) so there's no catch i just bought 2 day. Also, the information above about the feature were all copy and paste. I hope this answer any of your uncertainties. And can you blame me? i was bored in 3 oclock in the morning, can't sleep, and i was noobin around. hehe =P

    Wait till you try to switch a host. You'll find the catch in a hurry since they legally control and own your domain name now. That's why I wasn't 100% convinced you were advertising (in fact, I had half a hunch you were a little naive about the proceedings as it pertains to domain registration.)
