Someone recommended a site called Web Hosting Pad dot com, which is cheap, but which may be a scam.
Can anyone recommend a web hosting site that would be simple, inexpensive, but honest and legit?

I appreciate everyone's suggestions, since I have had no experience with any of these web hosting sites.
I was using them for my domains until the owner/ceo (?) starting bragging about his trophy hunting, then I moved them over to hostgator, who was already hosting my sites. They lost a lot of accounts because of that.

If you want a "proper" host, I recommend a "green host" called:
They are nice guys that don't oversell and have been around for a long time. (It's important to avoid so called "fly by night hosts".) You can certainly get cheaper hosting that boasts of "unlimited bandwith/space", but those hosts are actually the ones that you'd want to avoid. And the really big hosts often have a reputation of treating their customers badly.

I've heard good things about Gandi which was also mentioned by Puppet Master, so I'm contemplating transferring my domains to them.
I no longer post here after VB was sold in 2012. (See my profile page for details.)
In the past I used a place called ABN hosting and I used to love them, their customer service was amazing. However they then fell off the face of the earth and stopped replying to my emails, so when my domain expired I couldnt use it. Avoid like plague!
Check out www.AllInOneIT.net. One of the owners went through the trouble of editing php code for over an hour for a bad Wordpress update I got (Be careful downloading version 3.4 lol).
He even installed wordpress for me on one site, and installed MyBB on another site for me. Super nice people.
Just click on the web hosting section of their website.
