I'm getting in on this a bit late but wanted to do another shout out for HostGator.

I have loved being on HostGator. Their customer service has been excellent and they even saved me once a few years ago when I accidentally destroyed my back-up and current databases for 3 'sites.

With that said, I would never depend on hosting for back-ups and I always do my own, especially after my own disaster. :)

I agree with Stacey.  I am not a fan of how GD makes it hard to run BUB.
And BUB documentation says to avoid GD.

I currently use HostGator.

If you are using Godaddy you will have problems with BUB.  And, Godaddy is not WordPress Friendly.

When I was hosting at Godaddy I added to my wp-config.php file:

define('ALTERNATE_WP_CRON', true);

and was able to run backups.

I'm trying to set up backupbuddy on lunar pages and running into lots of issues.  Stacey, where do you host?

I couldn't live without BackupBuddy.

I build on my dev website and migrate the finished website with BackupBuddy to clients domain.

Also have automatic backups scheduled for every website.

Thanks!

Just to remind anyone using a self-hosted option,
make sure to back up both 1. your database, and
2. all your other content such as images.

This bears repeating:

1. Backup database,
2. Backup everything else.
