For the past 8 years, I've owned a web-hosting company. For the first 6 years we did co-lo. For the past 2 we ran through DreamHost.

As of Dec 31, we're closing our doors.

I'm looking to move all of our clients to their own accounts. Dreamhost says they can't do it. Two dozen users who are already on their servers must sign up as new accounts and manually backup and transfer all e-mail, database, and html data. This is actually worse than starting from scratch.

After providing my own hosting for the past 8 years (I was customer support, my partner dealt with the technical side) I find myself in the awkward situation of looking for a webhost.

So... Recommendations? And why?

N.B. Anyone who recommends GoDaddy will be pummeled with a wet carp.
