Can You Name Some Companies In VA, KS, CO, OR

Jul 29, 2008

I need some real multidomain shared hosting accounts (ie DirectAdmin, Hsphere, or cPanel only with WHM access because no way I am going to use add-on domains), with support for 4 domain names, 1GB disk space, 40gb multihomed bandwith, fast mysql server with at least 6databases.

My budget is less than 30US$/mo/account, and i need both PHP5 and Mysql 5.

Now this would seem pretty regular requirements.
The fact is I would like to get some of these accounts in not-so-popular locations for an application I am developing and some tests I will do, etc.

The California/Chicago/Dallas/NewYork part was quite easy, indeed ...

Now I am looking for some decent webhosting companies co-locating in :
- Upper West USA (any amongst Washington, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, etc)
- Colorado (ie, Denver)
- Kansas
- Vienna,McLeod corner in VA, or at the very least maybe Asburn,VA
- Toronto, Canada

If you are a web hoster and you colocate in some of these places please anwer: I don't think a simple message like "We are amongst the hosting companies located in XYZ" without reference to plans, price or promotions would be considered self-advertising in any way and is far better, useful and more informative than writing a post like "look at the advertising section, I am sure you will find some", because trust me I am searching till hours and I dind't find any:

Why So Many Companies Are Cheating

Sep 21, 2008

Found some in WHT ads forum, provide 800 GB space and 8000GB bankwitch. Other companies are similar offer. I talked with them, and ask: "Do you really provide 800 GB space?" they replied, yes.

Then I told them I am going to order. I have a 600GB sized website want to move into it and planed finish moving in 3 weeks to 1 month, then they just left me there, never had one word, so frustrating.

Asked a few more, and got similar result.

Are they real companies with real ads? If not, Why WHT allow false ads listed in there and waste us time.

What To Look For In Hosting Companies

Aug 17, 2008

I own a IT/Computer related blog site & community right now. I have plans to contact the top 25-50 hosting companies posing as a potential new client. I plan ask questions similar to the following and publish it on my blog. (This project will be geared towards shared hosting only, on low to mid sized budgets.

1.) What are the exact specs of the shared servers you are using? Smp, Uni processors? What are the manufactures of this hardware?

2.) How many clients are added to a server before it's considered 'Full'? If your company doesn't use this method, then what is the average I/O, CPU, & Memory usage on a full server in the opinion of your company for shared hosting?

3.) What is your mass email policy? Emails per hour?

4.) Where is the physical location of your companies shared servers in regards to country, city, and state?

5.) Are you a Reseller? If so, with whom do you resell for?

6.) Physical location of Technical Support?

7.) What is the average wait time for a Technical Support ticket submission during server peek hours for your company?

8.) Do you currently have a link of client testimonials that includes URL's to the
clients website?

Do you think publishing this information to be public for each host would be illegal, imoral, or disrespectful in anyway? If not, does anyone have any other suggestions as far as questions that are usually not disclosed on hosts website in regards to shared hosting?

Colocation Across Two Companies

Mar 6, 2008

I'm currently using Bluehost to run some of my clients web sites. Nothing with huge traffic or sophistication, but good uptime is a requirement.

I used to use webfusion, but they were expensive and unreliable, and their support was bad. I migrated all of my sites to Bluehost, at considerable expense in terms of billed time.

At the moment, the server I am running on has been down for 16 hours with a projected further 12 hours to restore. I find this unacceptable.

Does anyone have any suggestions as to how I could sign up to two shared hosting providers, but manage the DNS in such a way I can switch between the two?

Sort of a crude co-location (my clients aren't in the market for high end services). Having been burnt more than twice -I don't want to trust just one company.

Old Hosting Companies

May 20, 2007

I still have some NT 4s and Windows 2000 servers out there. My main issues are these are very very old clients who will not want to move, either their programmers had long disappeared or they just had an attachment to their old servers.

Now what should I do with these? Or rather what do you guys facing similar issues deal with this? Migrate these old contented clients and risk breaking something or just leave it as it is?

New Hosting Companies Vs. Established Once

Oct 12, 2009

I would like to discuss over new companies which have just put there steps towards hosting business.

I know many of the people here and everywhere believe that only established companies with a nice price tag of almost around $5 per month for smallest web hosting plan can give you best support and uptime. No doubt they can give you nice uptime but what about the support... leaving some companies all other big and established once do not offer you what you should actually get.

Companies with a huge customer base receives a large number of hosting support requests from there customers daily which they can not fulfill on time. Thus resulting in delay and some times inconvenience to the customer.

Where as on other hand new companies or mid level companies that just arrived or been in industry for a few couple of months is much better then them.
A solid reason to support this is if they want to be in this industry they will surely provide all the best of support and uptime and industry leading softwares and products to there client for the very low price as compared to other big ones.

Now the point to be noted is the people only don't believe new companies just because they are new... I don't understand the reason why people have a mentality of treating OLD IS GOLD....

When new companies just to establish them selves in this market are offering tons of services for a much lesser price to what other big ones do then why do people think they are going to fall down... They too have there business plans setup or else they won't advertise it different forums and waste there precious time in which they could have done many other jobs....

I know this is a never ending topic but you surely need to broaden your thinking and start thinking about this second phase of hosting industry...

With my article I surely can't mentality of too many people but surely can start a step ahead of others to let people think on this....

Hope I can scratch some great minds with my writting and they can comment some great ideas and pros and cons...

Companies That Sell IP Space

Jun 18, 2008

Are there companies out there that we can purchase IP's from? We might be moving data centers in 6 months and I am sick of asking my customers to always change their IP's every year.

Are there companies that we can purchase an IP block from and then carry those over to different data centers?

I am looking for something like a /26.

We currently have (2) /27's with our data center right now, but I would prefer a single /26 to keep all our IP's in the same range.

I've looked at trying to get them from ARIN, but the minimum they want to sell is a /22.

Also, how easy is it for data centers to announce your own IP space?

Small Companies Far Datacenters

Jan 31, 2008

How do small companies deal with data centers and their equipment being 1000-2000 miles away?

NYC puts the costs of cabinet and power at almost twice as much in comparison to the west coast and south.

For small businesses, is it worth to spend that extra to get a cab in NYC and be able to manage their clients hardware directly or have a cabinet far away and depend on the on site techs to take care of all hardware related issues and save spending that extra that is put on cabinet and power?

The Difference Between Webhosting Companies

Sep 9, 2007

I've been personally scanning the web and looked through different webhosting sites and attempted to compare their prices and hosting features. I found that m0st sites offer identical packages, same promises at minimal pricing difference. I've found it very confusing and I'm in dilemma deciding which one to go for. Is it the company's reputation that becomes a deciding factor for this? What if the company is new and they boast that there servers are not so populated therefore possibly better performance?

Is SpamTitan For Hosting Companies The Right Solution

May 18, 2009

We are a hosting company with about 10000 customer domains. We are looking for a good spamfilter gateway and found Spamtitan.

Do you think SpamTitan would work well with so many customer domains? How many servers do you recommend for this amount?

I realized that in the admin area a lot is done with domain dropdown elements to choose the domainname. This is for sure not the best solution with this amount of domains.

Our plan is, that customers don't have access to ST but only get the quarantine report mail. Will there be a resource problem in creating this report once a day for about 50000 mail addresses?

Are there any other hosting companies which are using ST?

What Companies Offer Monthly Service

May 18, 2008

I just spent three hours digging through a pile of hosting companies trying to pick one, and although lots of them looked nice, were recommended by plenty of people and cost a reasonable amount they required 6months-a year up front. Some of them had a money back guarantee for 30/45/60 days, but what good is that if I have to cough up $60-100+ bucks to decide for a month?

So I'm looking for a list of companies who sell hosting monthly, not just at a monthly fee figured from the bigger time frame you pay for.

A Good Host For Web Design Companies

Sep 3, 2008

I have been with Hostgator for over 2 years and they have been great.

However, I host all my clients on my own hostgator account and I absolutely cannot stand hostgator's backend interface (cpanel). Trying to manage my SQL databases, 200+ e-mail addresses, etc via cpanel is tedious.

I am also interested in getting a VPS or something similiar.
