I’m seriously fed up with my host right now. Also, they claim they make daily backups, but this is obviously not the case.
I have been glancing around to other hosts, but never wanted to take the leap.
Also, the one i’m on now, is very affordable.
So, if you know of a good stable host, that is not shared hosting, but VPS, or even better a private server, please let me know.
(please don’t put direct URLS but just mention the name or PM me with details)
edit: specifications: at least 100gb monthly traffic
unlimited MYSQL databases (no space restrictons)
at least 4gb webspace
preferable: accepting payments by paypal.
i’m in the hunt, so far, i have found one candidate, but i’m looking further before moving. I’m still at my current host for 2 more months, since i paid for a year in one go. So before that time is over, we are at a new host. And the sooner the better.
I get btw one extra month free for the latest downtime.
I really need a VPS, no shared hosting. LD4all demands too much resources to be on shared.
I have looked at countless VPS hosts, and still continue looking until I have found it The host I’m on now has an affordable plan - leaving the sluggishness apart - and i want to be at least at a comparible plan elsewhere, if only to compare the speed afterwards.
That means: at least 512 mb ram, and 417.17 mhz cpu.
budget is $50 monthly, can be slightly higher but then it should be real good.
my french is not so good that I dare to take that jump.
I have decided to stay with my current host until the year is up, because i paid for a year, i still have the right to be hosted until end of august. (otherwise i’m throwing $100 down the drain).
(also, i got one month extra free as compensation for the recent crash)
In the meantime i am researching new hosts possibilities and work with what i have at the current host.
The database size really slows down things, since the dutch forum loads very fast compared to this one. I have made an archive, and will be pruning 2 to 3 years of posts from this one to free up space. I’m currently working on having the same members database for the archive, so that private forums (eg dream diary) are accessible for members only.
So the goal is to be on the new host before august is over.
