Exposure Manager has been my host for almost two years and has provided great service and quality printing, but a few experiences this week with their balky uploader (and a scolding note in response to the "language" I used in my support request) has me looking for a new home.
Currently I'm paying about $13/month for unlimited storage, they handle printing and billing/shipping for 10% of the profits after costs.
Anyone want to weigh in on their favorite host sites OR steer me away from the ones to avoid?
I would greatly appreciate any advice here. I've got dozens of galleries I'll have to move, customers ordering left and right... but can't handle being dissed by people I pay.
Any help would be welcome!

I think Smugmug and zenfolio are the options for someone using EM. I had smugmug Pro but moved to Zen when they were offering their pro accounts for $80 per yr. It is not as customizable as smugmug though.

if you have your own host you can buy PhotoCart ($300) and do the whole thing yourself.
