Which Company I Should Choose (PHP/Linux) For Shared Hosting

Aug 7, 2008

I'm trying for days to decide which company I should use for my shared hosting/maybe (reseller(beginner)) (PHP/Linux), and hostmonster and bluehost have been getting the best "official" reviews but everybody else is complaining for their downtimes and unreliability. I'm currently with dailyrazor and today my site was down for sometime without the reason. I wasn't even informed about that. If I didn't checked myself it would be down god knows for how long. ...

My preferences:

I would like to host 3-5 sites at least 2 will have shopping cart's (5 MySql databases MAX), not much of audio or video at all. I don't want to spend more than $10 monthly. Location US, Guarantied uptime 99.9%

Hosting Company (from Shared To Dedicated)

May 3, 2008

Iím not sure this I the right place to post this, but since Iíll need also a dedicated server I guess it is (Iím sorry if itís not).

Hi to you all.

Iím developing my own site. This will be my very first time building and managing a site, so Iím for sure a noob on this type of stuff (but I have a good general knowledge on computers (I build my own computers and solve every problem I encounter)).
The site will be managed by joomla 1.5 plus a phpbb3 forum (maybe vbulleting in the future). Obviously when my site is completed and published on the net Iíll have zero members, but I hope to see this number increase (lolÖfrom 0 members it isnít a hard thing to accomplishÖI guess ).

Having a really low number of members and visitors I think that Iíll start from a shared hosting plan (or VPS) and then go up to a dedicated server (when Iíll need itÖI hope soon )Ö.probably a managed dedicated server since I donít know much of the technicalities needed to manage a dedicated server.

This being said, I would prefer to go for a good hosting company (cheapÖbut reliable) that has both shared and dedicated hosting plans so when Iíll have to upgrade (from shared/VPS to dedicated) everything will be smoothly managed by them.

The site/forum aims to have a large community, a good nį of hosted files (images and mp3ís (recorded voice) ---> everything legal!)

What hosting company would you suggest?

Is it possible to have the site on one server and the forum on another? (considering that the forum will be integrated in the joomls CMS with a bridge).

I want someone (well maybe except Rackspace) who is reliable, has good feedback and provides good uptime and customer service.

What hosts would you recommend from the UK, thank you.

I started another thread in the VPS section but i do not know how to close it,

Should I Choose Shared Or VPS

Apr 18, 2008

a friend recently contacted me about a music webzine and forum, which is having frequent issues on its current host. The site is built in PHP, using Xoops for the webzine and phpbb2 for the forum.

In the last year, the site's traffic has been steady at 1200 unique visits, ~3500 page views and ~140,000 hits per day, for a total transfer of 20GB per month. The site's MySQL database is more than 600mb of data. Most of the site's traffic is generated through the forum, which usually has around 30 users online. Although a small community, most users are very frequent posters. Being a phpbb2 forum, it is quite CPU intensive and currently the MySQL server has frequent failures.

Our immediate plan is to switch to another provider, then upgrade to phpbb3, tweak its code and probably rewrite the webzine in Python/Django so as to implement new needs in a faster manner and make the site performe steadier and faster.

As the site is not-for-profit and therefore cost-sensitive, we are considering two plans:
1) switch to Webfaction on its first (or second) shared hosting plan, for a cost of $10/month.

2) switch to Linode for an unmanaged VPS with 360MB of memory, for a cost of $20/month.

If the latter option is selected, we plan on using the following setup: nginx for static content (and possibly PHP if phpbb doesn't complain), Apache + mod_python for django, MySQL and mail server with MySQL virtual folders (to handle multiple domains). SpamAssassin is another consideration. The problem is I haven't actually used a VPS in the past, although I've read extensively on how to set it up and tweak the server's settings for optimal performance.

My questions are:
a) would a VPS (with the above setup) with 360MBs of memory be able to handle the traffic load mentioned above or will we be forced to upgrade to a plan with more memory?

b) would a reliable shared web host be able to handle the site's traffic load without problems, thus making the switch to a VPS unnecessary? More specifically, would webfaction, if someone has previous experience, be able to handle it?

Which Hosting Should I Choose

May 29, 2007

I'm migrating to another hosting service as current provider(aplus.net) suspended my account. The reason what they gave was, I had overused their CPU and Mysql resourses which is quite impossible. My site is just a community forum with photo sharing and maximum concurrent user in past few weeks was just 26. They are forcing me to upgrade to dedicated service which I can't afford($150/month) if I want my site online agiain. So I have no choice but to migrate. My budget limit is $30 and bandwidth/space requirement is 30gb. Any suggeston which hosting should i choose?

Windows + Linux Shared Hosting

Aug 7, 2008

This one may be a bit of a stretch, but does anyone know of a shared host who gives you both Windows and Linux hosting with one account? It is possible, as the company myhosting.com seems to offer it, and I think (mt) MediaTemple has some betas with it.

Update: Apparently MyHosting.com does it by giving you a primarily windows account with a linux sub-domain. That would work for me, but I'd rather a more known provider.

Neophyte Choose Web Hosting (VPS Or Near-equivalent)

Aug 11, 2007

I currently run five websites that are hosted by Yahoo! Small Business.

I am extremely frustrated by the fact that I cannot use PHP 5 and MySQL 5 with these websites. I pay ~$200/month for these 5 webhosting accounts.

I am beginning to see that paying this much to host 5 websites where I cannot even use the PHP version that I would like to is a bit ridiculous.

I know that I could simply switch to another shared hosting provider that includes PHP 5 as an option, but since I am running 5 websites concurrently, and these websites are each just about maxed with respect to bandwidth and disk space, shouldn't I look into another option?

So as I can see, my options are either a VDS/VPS, where I could host all 5 websites for one fee that would probably be MUCH lower than my $200/month I am paying currently, or something else that is similar.

I have decided that I want/need root access, because that way I can install/configure the system with whatever I desire now and in the future, BUT: I am not familiar with Linux (and I would want Linux) server administration; I don't know whether to choose CentOS4 or Red Hat Fedora Core 6 for an example; I don't know which Plesk 8 options I would need, etc......

WILL I BE GETTING MYSELF INTO A LOT OF TROUBLE if I choose a VPS and I am unable for some reason to administer the server properly?

I AM familiar with UNIX administration on OS X for example, and I AM familiar with coding.... PHP, SQL, Perl, Python, etc....

I just don't want to get myself into trouble although I am sure I want at least a VDS/VPS and I am sure I want root access.

I am confused as to what my options are other than a VDS/VPS (I don't think I need a dedicated server yet).

I have visited TextDrive and read about their Joyent Accelerators; what are they exactly? Not a VPS, but a scalable web-application-deployment environment?

This has been a long post and as you can see I am completely confused as to where to go from here..... could anyone that doesn't mind please let me know what my options are and what might be a good fit?

My websites are database-driven and need to be scalable.

A few of my requirements:

Full Root Access
Linux OS
at least 600GB Bandwidth
at least 25GB disk space
FTP Backup / Routine Server Backup for entire site
384-512MB Guaranteed RAM
Plesk 8 (I think) with various add-ons (which ones I don't yet know)
Support for 100 MySQL databases

May 31, 2007

I have a situation like this:

There is a directory say, "Master" and inside, "Master" there is sub-directory, "Slave". A user who has access to, "Master" should be able to access, "Slave" automatically. However, a user who has access to, "Slave" should not have access to, "Master". Inside cPanel this type of protection is not possible.

New Hosting Company

May 27, 2007

I will be starting up a new hosting company that will offer free and paid hosting. My question is, should I start out with a reseller, and move on as needed? I was simply thinking of starting out with a VPS, so I could simply skip the reseller part. I read elsewhere that some simply get a reseller and get another reseller when they need it.

What path should I choose. I could always get a VPS later on, but why not get one now? This is one reason I ask, because since reading about the reseller post, I am now split on this.

To note, have used a reseller before, but not a VPS. I do want to eventually learn to run a VPS, so this could be the time to do so.

What Hosting Company Can You Recommend MS SQL

Oct 20, 2009

I have recently built my first database application.I used SQL Server 2005 Express edition because it is free. The drawback is that it can only hold 4GB of data. But the database is also compatible with any SQL Server edition.

I'm wondering what my options are - a lot of hosting companies seem to offer a greater storage capacity and then limit the actual size of the SQl database. i.e. 10GB of online diskspace with a 600MB SQL database.

Web Hosting Company - Joomla

Apr 17, 2009

I am in the process of creating a site for my family, which is spread out around the world. I am using Joomla and have built my site on Siteground as my host.

My site will have low traffic, for family only, but I want my family to be able to post pictures, chat and blog.

I am very happy with Siteground but it has come to my attention that even though they offer 750gb of space I can only have up to 5gb of picture files (gif, jpg, etc.) I feel that I will eventually exceed this and being new at the whole site creation, I do not want to risk data being lost (database, files, etc.) when the time comes to transfer to a new host.

The site is not active yet as I am still working out the kinks and adding more pages. I figure if I am going to make a move to another host now would be the best time.

So I guess the question I have is what hosts, in your opinions, would be the best for the site I explained and still be able to work in Joomla.
