I have tried to keep track of the major online backup providers with this table here on my site. It has mostly current features, pricing, and service differentiators. Number6's comments below are also a good starting place.

SOS Online Backup is a longtime PCMag Editors' Choice for online backup services. Unrivaled initial backup speed and a rich set of features and tools make it a top choice for off-site data protection. SOS online also includes a higher level of security and privacy than most competitors offer, as well as special features such as the ability to wipe and locate devices, perform remote backup, and throttle bandwidth use to taste. It can also save all versions of your files forever.

I’d look at amount of storage, encryption and cost. I’d also look at company history and user reviews to make sure it is an established company with satisfied customers. Crashplan gets a lot of love from some reviewers. It costs about $5 a month, and has 448-bit file encryption. Backblaze is another option for about the same price. It’s a little more basic than Crashplan, but should be fine for most people.

There is a pretty comprehensive comparison of 36 different backup services on About:
