I couldn't tell you which would host would be the closest to Netherlands, which would help slightly with speed. I live in New Zealand and use US hosting companies. Which is what you want if a site is to have an international presence.
Godaddy and Hostgator are cheap. And at a glance offer all that you'd need. But I haven't had grate times with their support, they still kind of do the trick though.
I currently use wired tree http://www.wiredtree.com/
they're a smaller team of dudes running it. Grate response times for support, and have handled what I thought were some more advance server requirements without worry.
I haven't had first hand experience with with rack space but I'm told they're out right awesome http://www.rackspace.com/index.php
You pay more for what you get though. My brother put www.ninjakiwi.com on there, which has CRAZY amounts of page views, their server and support have worked well for them.
Blue Host I think a little mid range between premium server and cheap and dirty. From what I've experienced they offer dirt cheap hosting but limit the accounts per host to something more reasonable than godaddy or host gator. Although that just what they tell me over the phone :) http://www.bluehost.com/track/joomlabear/CODE43 (I left aff id in there I don't mean to spam)
And again I don't have anything here but have set Joomla up for someone on this host. One https://www.one.com/en/ they offer everything you need. But the idea is you have one site per account.
If you're doing a lot of sites I'd book yourself a WHM account on a more premium host. Then you can set up as many accounts as you need. The host will help you if you need a hand getting started. And it'll start paying for itself after you get a few clients on there. I use wired tree and WHMCS to manage accounts for small jobs I do here in New Zealand
