Could anyone recommend a certain hosting provider that offers good service and good speed?
IF i was looking to remote host the only option i would consider is leveraging Amazon AWS hosting
FileMaker Server on AWS Start Guide | Soliant Consulting
Perhaps it depends on where you are, where you users may be, and what you need to host?
(some providers may have FMS with WD, XML, PHP and other web hosting with PHP and SQL)
We have been providing professional FileMaker Hosting for 17 years and offer both shared and virtual dedicated server hosting options. Feel free to contact me privately for more information.
I would look at the closest FileMaker Platinum Partner to your location at
FileMaker Business Alliance and Business Technology | FileMaker
I would check that they have Certified FileMaker Developers and that they have a strong knowledge on how to handle FileMaker Server.
More specifically, select Hosting here:

If you are able to use FileMaker 12 through 16 then you can save yourself a ton of money with a FileMaker 14 server due to licensing changes. If you click on the link above, you'll see two columns. The first is for a FileMaker 14 server and is a third of the price.
