I personally like Hardibacker. Its completly water proof , and its extreamly durable.
Tip; make sure you put a bed of thinset mortar under the backerboard then fasten it down with screws, nails or staples.
also dont get any backer board over 1/4 " its really difficult to cut. And a bit of an overkill if you ask me.
Good luck.

Actually the 1/4 inch hardibacker has more strength than the thicker hardibacker because the 1/4 inch hardibacker is produced under more pressure according to the sales rep I talked to when I worked at Home Depot.

Your critical areas are going to be your perimeters. You need a good caulking around the edges.
