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.

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.

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. (netflow.co.il)
host 2 : scammed on directadmin. (peerlessmachines)
host 3 : a reseller of host 4, vanished suddenly, and domain got parked free. (youhostme.com)
host 4 : seemed perfect but recently a 5 days in a row downtime, blaming a faulty error and 'node 1 issues'. (highspechosting.info)

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 mywebsite.name 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?

Is Dreamhost Reliable?

Jan 5, 2009

Just read about some deal they're having where they're selling you a domain and 2 years of unlimited bandwidth hosting for 24 dollars or so. Is this legit?

Is quality sacrificed for this kind of pricing?

I'm currently with downtownhost and they are amazing by the way but if it's that cheap, I might be forced to switch.

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 donít 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?

Reliable, Best For The Money VPS?

Aug 14, 2008

I am wanting to spend around $60 - 70 a month on a VPS...

I am looking for a reliable source, and one that is on the cheaper side (but I know those two don't actually mix, so reliable more)

It doesn't have to be managed, but it can, so either way.

Any recommendations?

How much disk space/bandwidth should I be able to get with that amount of money?

I need it with control panel, and fantastico at the least.

ReliableSite.net - Not So Reliable

Aug 6, 2008

Just wanted to put a little warning out there for people thinking about ReliableSite.net for hosting. I am a web host and designer/developer and I was looking for Windows hosting for one of my clients (I only do Linux) to host a shopping cart called ProductCart on and after searching in here I found ReliableSite.net. I researched them, they seemed to have a good rep, their prices were great and they said they had ASPImage and ASPUpload installed (which we needed specificlly for ProductCart, I was even offered the most current invoice or something to prove they had it). I talked with the sales guy (Radic) a few times before I had my client order services and a few time after.

Once we started having some problems with things not working correclty it was VERY hard to get ahold of Radic and support tickets were taking longer and longer to be answered.

I really don't remember to many of the eariler problems, they were not a big deal, but we hit a major road block when the feature in ProductCart wouldn't work (the image upload and resize feature that is dependent on ASPImage and ASPUpload being installed).

I finally determined that it was becuase the ASPImage and ASPUpload were not liscened correctly (even though they stated it was before we purchased services). I emailed support they took their time getting back to me, then told me it was setup correctly and it must be something with the program we were using.

After contacting support for ProductCart I found a little tester script they provide to test for what version of ASPImage and ASPUpload are installed. That failed and gave an error number. I forwarded this onto support, they responded and said they would look in to it. I was then told that they had found the problem and it was a billing or provision issue. A few days later I still have not gotten an update nor are the componets working.

I am emailing and emailing them and they are ignoring me. I finally get a response and they say they are working on an emergency server restore and everyone is busy with that, we will have to wait, they say they will have it fixed by the next day at 7pm EST. I wait until after that time period, see nothing has happened, I email them a few hours later I get a response that says they still have hundreds of clients down and cannot do it.

By this time it has been close to a week and no action has been taken. We decided to move everything to yet another host (this will be our 3rd) and we never did get an update about when it was fixed, if ever. I then had to email them one last time to ask for the SSL Cert to be exported, took them 10 days to get that to me and by then I had reissued it.

Reliable .NET Hosting

May 29, 2007

Are there any webhost, besides discountASP.net that offers .NET hosting, and are actively updating their software, SDKs whenever Microsoft releases something new?

I'm looking for a host that offers .NET 2.0, MS SQL 2005, MS AJAX(Atlas) to name a few.

I like what discountASP offers, but it's a bit pricey as I have to pay $10/month for the basic plan, and another $10/month for MS SQL. Somewhere between $10-$15/month would be good.

Reliable Web Hosting

Dec 10, 2007

I am currently with Yahoo web hosting, but I will move to another company because Yahoo does not support PHP 5.

What I am looking before all is a solid, reliable web hosting company:
- a company that will still exist 5 years from now
- a company that will not lose my customers data
(this is the prime reason I was with Yahoo)

Besides that and supporting PHP 5, the only other main requirement is scalability: being able to move easily from shared host to dedicated server.

Money is not a key factor: I am not looking for the cheapest deal.

Level3 Reliable Enough As ONLY Carrier

Sep 14, 2009

We are switching from a reseller that blends several carriers to Level3, to reduce our b/w costs (by a factor of 3x). We are driving upwards of 300Mbps currently.

Is Level3 reliable enough in terms of uptime to be our *only* carrier?

We are running a real-time always-on service with long-lived TCP connections, so frequent disconnections would be problematic. A single downtime of a couple of minutes per month would not be too bad on the other hand.

Switching our stuff to Level3 is a lot of work as it is.

Getting a second provider for the failover, which involves setting up a CISCO edge router with BGP, getting an AS number from ARIN, will make this task too big at this point. Is L3 reliable enough on its own to spare this hassle of a second ISP?
