Map Of Reliable Ecommerce Hosts

Dec 10, 2008

Topics on good hosts have been repeated over and over again, and we have seen many new emerging while many old fading, and still too many have changed. In the past 2/3 years, what has happened to your host? Get your host listed in this thread if your host has kept their service as promised in the past 2/3 years or even longer. This will become a most useful map for new people to make their first step.

What Are Some Reliable Web Hosts...

Mar 20, 2009

I was wondering what some reliable web hosts would be for hosting a website that would provide enough bandwidth to allow downloads of text files and also a forum. I just want something to get started with. However, I want something that is easily upgradeable. TO be honest I just really need the name of a few reliable companies that aren't scams or anything.

Reorganized: Map Of Reliable Hosts

Dec 12, 2008

Important: This thread should only included the host names who, in the past 2 / 3 years or even longer period, have been providing you reliable service as they promised you. No further arguements and questions on the hosts should be posted here. Please help to make this thread 100% clean. Yes this is a free place to post but please open another thread.

Topics on good hosts have been repeated over and over again, and we have seen many new emerging while many old fading, and still too many have changed. In the past 2/3 years, what has happened to your host? Get your host listed in this thread if your host has kept their service as promised in the past 2/3 years or even longer. This will become a most useful map for new people to make their first step.

Initially I wanted to know who, among those familiar / unfamiliar names, have been used and found reliable. By posting hereafter, you simply leave your footprints for those who come after you, rather than anything else. Your opinions on your host, good or bad, are relatively insignificant - people will just see your footprints over there, which does not assure anything at all. Please feel free to speak of your host's names as it's maybe the very spirit of our FORUM. I prefer not to post any arguements / clarifications other than the experiences.

Sorry I didn't put myself clear enough in the previous post (link below), and all I want now is a clean list of GOOD names and GOOD experiences.

2 Months, 4 Hosts. RELIABLE Host

Sep 7, 2007

I have changed four hosts in less than two months, absolutely disastrous.

I need a VPS with:
+700mb ram guaranteed (1gb preferable)
300-500 gb bandwidth (basically 300 for 1st month but if its reliable i will expand)
2gb space is enough.
100 mbit line.
location doesn't matter.
and a company that does not oversell
Adult content Allowed
A server that can stay up three days in a row??

MAX 55$/month (or if it does not work out, what is the max you can offer for 55$?)
Please help me find a reliable host, after months of suffering and instability.

Reason for changing hosts:
host 1: too much for shared, noobish attacks causing downtime. (
host 2 : scammed on directadmin. (peerlessmachines)
host 3 : a reseller of host 4, vanished suddenly, and domain got parked free. (
host 4 : seemed perfect but recently a 5 days in a row downtime, blaming a faulty error and 'node 1 issues'. (

Magento ECommerce Hosting

Jan 14, 2009

After a few threads on Web Hosting Talk, I have decided to go with Magento eCommerce CMS because it is powerful and I like it

The only thing I am looking for is a host that will support it and that will let me either upgrade to a VPS, or straight to a Dedicated Server (or maybe even a co-location).
Because I am a startup business, the costs need to be low (yes, I know good hosting doesn't come cheap and I know I need to put into consideration SSL).

1 major thing. It NEEDS to be in the UK.

I was chatting to one of Rackspace UKs live help support people and they priced their entry level server at "£255 - £355 per month", which being a startup is a bit of a hefty price.

So, how do you think I should start? Shared, VPS or straight to dedicated?
Also, what UK hosts do you recommend?

ARIN App For SSL / Ecommerce Sites

Oct 2, 2008

I'd like to get IP's direct from ARIN and use with a colo or dedicated server I run a few dozen domains almost all of which are ecommerce sites the ones which accept credit cards of course have SSL and a dedicated IP all the others right now are taking offline payments i'd like to get them all setup with SSL with their own IP since they are starting to bring in more sales. Sites right now are being hosted all over the place mainly vps and shared. I want to have them all on one or more servers that I have complete control over including the IP's. I'm new to the forums but did search for arin and read a few posts about the justification and from what I read SSL is justified to get IPs. Can anyone give me more information on what I should be doing first before applying or how to go about it with them. I'm looking at arin's fee schedule and i would apply under the x-small/micro allocation how much smaller from /20 do they go is there a specific number of IP's i would get for the app fee of $1250 a year or how does that work exactly?

Weird [FLAG ECommerce Discovery]

Mar 13, 2009

So...a short little back story...

I started out with a reseller account at Great company, I outgrew their services and moved to Innohosting over a year ago.

Before I moved to InnoHosting, I sent in a cancellation request (they use WHMCS)...but nothing was every canceled in their system and I kept getting invoices from them. I simply ignored them. Fair enough, right?

Now, as I've said...I've been with Inno for over a year now. In that past year seems to have been acquired by eCommerce Discovery.

Here is the weird problem. My account on their server was never deleted! I, as a reseller had WHMCS installed was using cron jobs to automatically send emails.

A few weeks ago, I started recieving cron job reports from, a domain owned by eCommerce Discovery. I really wouldn't care too much, but apparently the whole WHMCS system is still active and is sending my clients emails (Invoice reminders, domain renewal reminders, etc etc...).

This is obviously something that needs to be dealt with as it's getting a little out of hand. I only had 35 clients in WHMCS when I was with them...all of which are still with me.

I've called the number at this page:
multiple times only to be forwarded to a voice message. I just now actually left my voice message. Emails to have gone unanswered for 6 months, so I'm not even going to bother with that.

What I don't understand is how my account, over a year old and unpaid, is still not only ON the server...but ACTIVE, unsuspended, and running cron jobs. I'm going to shoot eCommerce Discovery an email shortly and will update this thread if they reply, although...chances don't look good.

Will 2 Ecommerce Sites Sharing 1 Mysql On 1 VPS Effect SEO

Nov 28, 2007

I have 2 ecommerce sites now hosted at 2 different shared locations, both sites offer same exact products and pricing. I am in the process of elancing out the recode/rebuild for both sites to share one mysql database, cart and to be housed together in one VPS.

I plan to put them both on 1 windows VPS (they are asp) each with its own separate IP but have heard this can cause problems with search engines especially google. I have great natural organic right now (1st position for 5 of my demo keywords) and dont want to put that at risk but getting really tired of 2 separate backends, carts, hosting etc..

Difference Between Shared, Ecommerce, Dedicated, Reseller, Colocation And VPS

Apr 29, 2008

I've had a look at the different types of hosting, and had a guess at the description,

A machine with many, many domains on each for individual customer.

Same as above with SSL?

One machine to yourself, one domain?


You have a dedicated potion of a machine to use as many domains on as you want?

You own the server, someone else looks after it.

Hard Disk space and Bandwidth to be apportioned to each domain as you see fit, cpanel with each domain so that you can 'resell'

So what type of hosting would I want to host 5 to 10 of my own websites that use around 100GB a month bandwidth?

Ecommerce Web Hosting? Going To Use Hostgator Which Plan? Business, Baby Or Reseller?

Nov 3, 2008

I've officially decided to go with Hostgator but I'm having a hard time choosing which type of plan would make the most sense for; maybe there is something I'm not seeing and I'm hoping to get some additional insight...

Here is my plan; I plan on hosting multiple domains (business and personal) and atleast one e commerce website to start and it will eventually grow into about 5 down the road (this is going to be a drawn out process and I want to do it right).

The problem I have is I realize in order to get a true ecommerce website up in running I will need a dedicated IP address and SSL certificate for each site. If I purchase the Business plan it only comes with one dedicated IP and one SSL cert; Hostgator also told me that I'm unable to add an additional dedicated IP address or SSL cert to the business plan so I would have to purchase an additional Business Plan (12.95) per each site. It sounds like I could still host private and not SSL required sites on the business plan and as much domains as I want.

If I go the reseller path then the cost per month will be twice as much as the Business Plan and there is no dedicated IP address included. I will also have to purchase dedicated IP addresses at 2.00 a month and SSL certs as well so that method could get expensive.

I'm also not sure if the baby plan would suffice as well, but apparently not because there is a limit of 1 dedicated IP per plan

What would you guys recommend I do; I want a plan that will allow me to grow with them.

Just curious on what your guys thoughts were..

Also I read a previous post in this forum that someone said their SSL cert prompted the end-user to install the certificate; Being in Ecommerce this is obviously unacceptable to me.

Universal Hosts (uni-hosts) Two Week Mini Review

Apr 2, 2008

I was in the market for a new dedicated server after a couple of years with my previous provider. The previous provider did nothing wrong but they were no longer competitive when it came to CPU and memory.

I moved first to geekrack. And I left them after a week and a half as they never were able to get my rDNS records setup.

I found Universal Hosts on this forum and gave them a shot. I had asked for an operating system that they didn't offer normally (Debian 64 bit) and they said that they could do it. However, when my server was setup it was 32 bit Debian instead. They apologized and had Debian 64 bit setup less than 24 hours later.

When I asked them to get rDNS records setup it took a few hours but they were setup correctly and they worked.

Universal Hosts is also a BurstNet reseller but compared to my other attempt at using a BurstNet reseller they are fantastic. While the initial config was incorrect they worked quickly to fix it and were very professional about it.

So after two weeks - so far so good. Keep up the good work UniHosts!

Apache :: Virtual Hosts With Windows 8 Hosts File

Aug 11, 2013

I am running Apache2.2, PHP5.I have been running with virtual hosts on a Windows 7 environment fine for a couple of years successfully, but have just had to move to a Windows 8 environment.It looks like Apache and PHP have installed and are working fine, but my Virtual hosts are now not being recognised. From what I can tell, it is the Windows 8 hosts file that is having a problem, as it looks as though it is now just setup to Block websites.

If I make the host file just have the one line127.0.0.1 localhost entry, then the very first Virtual Host from my apache config file will come up, but the rest are not found.If I put the usual aliasname is appears as though my website works momentarily and then is blocked..

Directadmin Hosts Or Cpanel Hosts

Aug 16, 2008

Recently I stumbled along a host on here with a good rep and that uses direct admin.

Because they were very nice on the live support I signed up to see what direct admin was like.

Its very diferent from cpanel. Some parts seem to be harder to use like the phpmyadmin requires the username and password to the database you created not the control panel username and password like cpanel. Although I guess that could be a good security feature just in case some one gets into the control panel they can not get into the phpmyadmin, then again if they are smart and were able to get into the control panel they could get into ftp and look what the username and password is on the config file for the script you are using.

The bandwidth meter seems to be better in direct admin although I think its acting up for me as its putting yesterdays bandwidth on todays. I was told by the host that it updates every 2 hours and at first it did but now its gone to every day. Oh and unlike cpanel this bandwidth meter includes bandwith used by the control panel.

Niether one from what I can tell counts sftp though at least for the hosts I have right now.

Just Want The Most Reliable VPS Available

Jun 4, 2007

I'm looking for the most reliable VPS/network I can get my hands on. I'm willing to pay a premium for 99.999 - 100% uptime. I don't want 99.5, that translates into two or three very painful outages a year.

I don't need a managed system, or any control panel. Debian etch is preferred.

Anyone else out there shopping primarily for reliability?

Reliable VPS Hosting

Apr 13, 2009

I've been using a Ubiquity VPS for a bit over a year now, and have been generally satisfied, for two reasons:

1) The performance has been excellent. It's still pretty fast considering how much we're using it, and I was able to record just over 200 days uptime.

2) The support seems to be competent and no-BS. Nothing ticks me off more than being lied to, or being told that something that is clearly beyond my control is my fault. While there have been various teething problems (I signed up just before they did a big infrastructure upgrade, and then the whole "someone pulled the plug on the entire company thing".

We're now looking to procure some additional virtual boxes. Not out of any slight to them (primarily to do with SEO, but also a matter of eggs and baskets), we'd like to get them from different firms.

I can generally handle the technical stuff running on the VPS myself, so in terms of ongoing support (once the basic "provision everything, get forward and reverse DNS for the server's IP set up" is done), all I really need is a company that will keep the lights on, the machine plugged into the network, and replace hardware when it fails promptly-- in short, self-managed VPS.

Each one would likely host only a single site, but the sites are apt to be fairly database-intensive. Linux-based.

So what I was thinking, to start with, would be:

* 512M memory
* 20G disc
* 500G transfer

or higher. I'd honestly prefer a bit more memory (the current VPS, hosting probably 75 domains of minor traffic, is a 1Gb setup, and will occasionally breach the red line; I've kept it reined in to 20 simultaneous Apache processes to keep memory use low).

I shopped around a bit, and was able to find a variety of providers offering packages of this size (and frequently larger-- 768M/40G/600G seemed a common size) at about $50-60 per montt.

I'm leaning towards a VPS primarily because of the assumption that the low end fully-dedicated boxes are relatively poor spec-- low permanent capacity (compared to the burst capacity I could get on a decent VPS), and most importantly, no redundant drive subsystem. Data loss is my big fear. That, and really weak performance.

But of course, nobody is going to tell you "Your VPS is on a Duron 750 shared equally between 32 VPSes", "We have RAID. When there's a roach in the lunch room, we spray it." or "We really suck at support and end up taking it out on our customers."

So who can be trusted in those departments?

I'd prefer someone with no-gimmick pricing, because we're researching today but may not provision immediately.

Is DiscountASP.Net Reliable

Jan 29, 2008

I have been doing some research to try and figure out the best host for my ASP.Net website. DiscountASP.Net seems like a very good option. However, I have read about some serious downtime they had due to two DDOS attacks they had. Apparently this brought down all hosted sites for days.

Other than this, DA.Net seems quite reliable. My questions are:

1. Are the DDOS attacks on DA.Net something I should be worried about? They claim to have improved their security, but I wonder why they were brought to their knees twice?

2. How come only DA.Net was attacked on such a large scale twice? Is it a sign that hackers are targeting it?

3. How good is the infrastructure that DA.Net has?

Reliable ASP .NET Hosting

Jan 8, 2008

We currently have our sites hosted with 1&1 but after a nightmare of intermittent downtime, poor service and complex setup requirements for basic ASP .NET sites we have given up!

We want to leave the domain registrations with 1&1 as they do that side of things well and I dont want the issues of moving domains to another provider.

But what we need is a fast reliable host that will allow us to leave our domains with 1&1 and will host our websites, their subdomains (and hopefully emails if possible) with the domains still registered at 1&1.

Also the things we need to resolve from 1&1 are:

1 - using asp or aspx custom error404 pages for all webpages, we can do this for aspx sites though our web.config but all other extensions go to a single .html page (not very dynamic)

2 - different error 404 pages per domain

3 - ability to do extension-less url rewriting in ASPX - we could not do this with 1&1 due to the inability to change IIS settings for the application to forward all requests to the asp .net application

4 - different IIS applications for each domain without requiring a folder in the url, 1&1 require us to move the domains into folders for this to work but moving our domain to a sub folder therefore loosing links to pages in google etc

5 - great technical service and attention to problems

Also all of our customers are in the UK, is there any latency or issues with slow loading using say a US based host?
