Submission + - Ask Slashdot: How to evaluate web hosting services?

An anonymous reader writes: There appear to be a nearly infinite number of hosting services available. And there appears to be an infinity-squared number of "reviews," suggestions, comparison sites, etc. to "help" one pick a provider. The ones of these that make it to the top of search results usually have some sort of agenda. And there are triple-infinity number of discussion-board posts by people saying "I use so-and-so, and I (love/hate) it." Everyone has different needs (price, geography, geographic-latency, specific capabilities, bandwidth, etc.), so recommendations by others seem rather worthless. So how does one get unbiased, detailed information with which to select a hosting provider?
