Is anyone here still running one of the "old legacy" cPanel vps plans from PowerVPS? I`ve have had one for almost three years now, I was lucky enough to get one on a really sweat deal. Not often powervps offer specials so I snapped one up.
The server has run flawlessly, however I`m starting to realise the hardware and indeed software on these VE`s are probably getting old now. I recently ran a benchmark which scored 22!
Just reluctant to upgrade to their newer 64bit HSPC plans, I will lose out in diskspace, ram allocation and bandwidth, plus I will lose my 50% lifetime special. Trying to decided whether it is worth keeping this old vps going owing to the fact the hardware and software is getting dated. CentOS 4 is the last version they can install on these old VE`s.
Anyone else still running an old plan with powervps?
My current web host (SectorLink) has been acting flaky lately so I'm in the market for a My requirements are at least 6GB of space, the ability to run multiple websites on the same account (I'm currently at 7) and ASP, PHP, and mySQL capabilities. I'd also like the price to be competitive with what I'm currently paying ($11/month) though I'm willing to go up a bit.
I'm currently looking at 3 hosts, but I'm open to any suggestions. My short list right now includes:
HostGator - Not a Windows host, I know (though they're working on Windows plans), but they do offer ChiliSoft ASP capabilities. This host would give me unlimited space and domains for $14.95 per month.
AllReseller - This host would give me 50GB of space and unlimited domains for $11.95 a month.
Aspnix - This host would give me 10GB of space and 7 domains for $7.77 a month. Has anyone used any of these hosts? What were your experiences with them? Could you recommend any other hosts? Side Question to any classic ASP developers out there: Have you used ChiliSoft ASP and, if so, how good is it at running scripts originally written for IIS?
my site is mainly based upon mysql ...mean I need to insert 25-30 mb data everyday .I saw several webhost saying 5 gb space ...does it mean i can store 4.5 gb data in mysql ? lets take that i will use only 0.5gb to store file&codes.
I am trying to find a reliable host that can provide both mysql and ms sql for the same site. I know this is not how the site should be designed, and a complete redesign is in the works to streamline everything to mysql, but for now I need a host that can provide both. Our current host is absolutely horrible (seekdotnet.com) as there is an excessive amount of downtime (typically a few times/day for various periods of time). Thus far the only one I have been able to find is Mosso, but it seems a lot of people on here are anti-mosso, or have had problems with mosso.
I am reading the BYO Database Driven Website Using PHP and MySQL and I am ready to play around a bit. I was wondering if anyone could recommend a quality provider with this language. I have had problems with some in the past when using Joomla so I am trying eleviate that problem from the get-go.
However, my site has a large MySQL database (200 megabytes) and it's impossible to backup or restore via phpMyadmin. Godaddy has a feature on their control panel, where you can restore/backup your MySQL database to a special diretory on your web http file space, which you can upload/download vis FTP. I use this alot.
Is there any other web hosting company that offers such a feature? I haven't seen this anywhere except on Godaddy.
As to why I need to get away from Godaddy:
Basically what they did was, my site was getting too much traffic (even though it's still well under Godaddy's advertised limits for that plan)... so they sent me an email that says:
"Your site is using too much server resources. We have moved you to a new server to protect our other customers. Please identify steps to reduce your site traffic and contact us."
They moved my site to what is, apparently, a punishment area (Godaddy Hell) where all the high volume sites go. It is so extremely slow, my site might as well not exist... it is inaccessible to my visitors for all intents and purposes.
I know there are a million "looking for cheap shared hosting" threads. Hopefully my particular values/interests justify a new one.
I'm a (mostly PHP/MySQL/CMS) web developer, using Dreamhost for years (perhaps DH was better back then) to host staging/development sites for clients (once I've developed a client site, I usually make them get their own host somewhere more reliable), as well as for low-traffic sites, transferring files, etc.
What I don't like about Dreamhost:
a) SLOW. my guess is this is 25% web server overselling, and 75% MySQL server overselling. My simple sites are tolerably slow - including lightweight php/mysql sites (textpattern CMS, etc.) - BUT my Drupal and Silverstripe and ZenCart experiments are intollerable (5+ second page loads).
b) funny ownership policies - I can't (easily) create a client FTP user that is restricted to one of my subfolders. Each user = exclusive file/folder ownership. c) not much else. I seem to get a-little-too-frequent DNS problems/outages, and used to get a-little-too-frequent server lock-ups... but I don't expect perfection from a cheap host. And of course I send my mail through google apps, I wouldn't trust a cheap host with my mail.
What I like about Dreamhost:
a) the control panel functionality. Yes, it's ugly, but god it does a lot of nice stuff that cPanel doesn't (and frankly, cPanel is usually ugly too).
b) the usual: a very low price for unlimited domains, unlimited mySQL, and huge storage.
So, who is my next low-cost host?
a) Interested in MySQL performance/protection - perhaps hosts that put MySQL [and mail] on separate servers, like DH, but don't overload them!?! Do I need to worry about this?
b) I wouldn't mind moving to a reseller account
c) I'd like a progressive control panel; I have clients on medialayer - who use directadmin (nice) - but their pricing structure is a bit tight on domains/db/storage. [As an aside, medialayer provides excellent shared hosting performance/value/support, if you don't need a lot of domains/db/storage]
d) I'd like to stay in the $10-20ish a month range
I have the hatchling plan on HostGator. Is there a PHP and MySQL open-source application where I can put up there to test its performance on running PHP and MySql applications? I want to see if there is any performance issue on this host before migrating a large ZenCart app to it.
What are people's experience on HostGator running PHP and MySQL?
I am getting the error "max_user_connections exceeded" for database user "xxxx". So every time this happens I have to feed a new database admin login to my script. There is nothing wrong with the script since it is very popular membership script. I think my host just allows low number of "max_user_connections". please advice me on a host that allows higher number of "max_user_connections"
have just had a website created for me where I can store my photos on. It uses JSP + MySQL for the databse which stores the photo IDs, photo location etc. I want to get it up and running on the net but have no idea how to do this!
