    Re: Web host recommendations

    I'll host it... ;)

    if not... just setup your own in a VPS somewhere,

    I used EvoHosting for a long time, and highly recommend it, a tad pricey, but you get what you pay for...


    I guess your asking, is something to do with why the site was down the other day?

    was just about to post this.

    end of the day, you pay for what you get... if you're paying 5 a month expect it to be shit, go down, take forever to get fixed etc.

    I'd offer u a host via my company but .. we both know id be wasting my time

    Work out what you need then see if the hosts offer it.

    If you need specifics like Windows or Linux, SSL, php, MS SQL or MySQL databases, shopping cart, Wordpress, CMS etc., some hosts enable quick installs of these, others require you to do all the setup. Sounds easy but can be a pain.

    Cheap hosting is usually cheap for a reason !

    That sounds like far more effort than necessary

    also it's not for lomcn lol.

    Don't all hosts come with one click installs nowadays? :O

    My requirements are basically fast, reliable, uk based, and good with wordpress. Siteground offers some WP caching system which supposedly makes wordpress sites faster...seems like a good bet me thinks!

    Thanks all

    Re: Web host recommendations

    i've used them for 3 years and have no complaints to what they provide in terms of service.

    They don't offer windows servers unfortunately though so you can't host .net based sites, and i found you have to manually request them to open ports for specific IP addresses (so the Mir2 Signature tool could get a tad annoying).

    But they offer to install any plugin for you, and they've always fixed complicated htaccess rewrite rules for me when i can't figure it out.

    GoDaddy has quite a few deals for decent prices. Look up GoDaddy promo codes.

    Problem with cheap or no-name hosts is that they're either subletting servers from other companies trying to make a fast buck and won't be around for long/crap service or they're (the company) being bought and sold annually.

    Digital Ocean.

    Depending on how much you want to spend that can scale up/down automatically... I usually start with their small droplets (VPS) whilst I am dev-ing and then increase it once it goes live.

    They have a London data center as well.
