See How do you rate Hosting?. It seems a genuine question for a programmer but I don't know if this kind of quesion should be on-topic. What do you think?
My first reaction when I saw that question was that it should be on webmasters. I did a little looking, and there are questions about measuring and comparing hosting providers in the web-hosting and hosting tags.
There's also been some discussion on webmasters meta about hosting questions, and the consensus seems to be that they are being handled well (i.e., answered or closed) so far.
My vote is for directing these questions to webmasters.
"our fellow programmers created a sister site specifically for their pent up subjective questions. Take one heaping pile of subjective questions, bottle it up for over two years and… kablooey!"
I posted that question here because it was my impression that this forum is the only one that accepts subjective questions.
Here is another suggestion, by the way.
When I made that thread, there were no "hosting" or "web hosting" tags... only "project-hosting". When I tried to use "hosting" and "web hosting", it gave me an error about not being able to create new tags with below-150 rep. Of course, to a veteran, that would probably be an indication that they were asking the question on the wrong forum, but I didn't really think much of it.
I think another great way to help new users would be for the forum to read the tags and, based on the tags, suggest a different forum if it seemed as though the user was in the wrong spot (with a Continue/Cancel dialogue box)... and to do that before the 150-rep check too... otherwise new users will just erase the tag creating the error.
