My first Host


Relatively new designer here (ok, I am in High School. But that shouldn't change anything). Looking for my first host and have been trying to find the best place for me. Heres a list of all the people I am thinking of.. Basically, I just need some shared hosting, preferably with the option to host more than 1 domain on an account.. I don't need much specific as I don't use much javascript of PHP (working on that this summer).

Site5 -They seem good and I've heard support is awesome and have seen the CEO on the forums here. Pretty inexpensive prices too
Hostgator- I like them but it is slightly more expensive and seems more unfriendly.
1&1 - Has good reviews
HawkHost - really supported on webhostingtalk

as well as some others I cannot verify all good reviews
Dreamhost
StableHost
2Eleven
JaguarPC
MDDHosting

Any favorites Since I am pretty new, the requirements are going to be pretty lax for now. I doubt the sites I build will attract more than a few new people a day. They will mainly be for local people and small businesses that just need an easy site with contact info and pricing (oh, and the occasional artist who needs a site keeps those designer juices flowing). Any thoughts by you So far I like site5 the best, as it is not as big as hostgator and has a more personal feel.

What is the best host(ing) for me?

What is the best host(ing) for me There are several types of hosting availble. Each with their own advantages and disadvantages. Below we listed the most common hosting options, starting with shared hosting for the light-weight websites, to Cloud hosting for the big guns. Free Hosting Free hosting is not actually a kind of hosting, but since many members ask for this we thought we would explain it here. As you will find in a lot of threads around these forums, free hosting always has a catch. Either your website shows adverisements, gives little to no resources available, doesn't allow you to use your own domain name, etc. If you're making a website for family and free hosting might be an option for you, but if you use it for business, stay away from it, as it looks very unprofessional! Shared Hosting Shared hosting is the most basic form of hosting, and perfect to be used by start-up websites and/or websites with low traffic. Your website will be placed on a server together with other websites. This means that your website has to share the resources (CPU time, memory) with other websites running on the server, which is not necessarily a bad thing, as most hosters take care of balancing things out. Usually this is done by imposing a limit on the CPU time a website may take, i.e., a website may not take more than a set percentage of CPU time as that would be unfair to the other websites that run on the server, as their speed would decrease. Usually this limit is about 10-25% and the amount of data traffic you can have will be somewhere between several hundred mega bytes to a few gigabytes of data traffic available. E-mail services on a shared hosting account will also be shared. If another account is spamming (or has been hacked with SPAM as the result), your account will be blacklisted, too, as it originates from the same IP address. Virtual Dedicated Hosting Virtual hosting is for the websites that have low to medium traffic. Your website will be placed on a server that has been virtually split into multiple servers. This means that each of the websites gets a predefined amount of CPU time and memory available, i.e., a portion of all CPU time and memory available. Because of this split, your website won't slow down when any other website running on the same server has a sudden increase in traffic, as your CPU time and memory are protected. Depending on how many other websites are run on the server you will usually get about 2 to 5% of CPU time and about 50 to a few hundred gigabytes of data traffic available. Dedicated Hosting Dedicated hosting is for the websites that have medium to high traffic. Your website will be the only one to run a server. Meaning all the server's CPU time and memory are dedicated to serving your website only. With dedicated hosting you will usually get several hundred gigabytes of data traffic. CDN CDN (Content Delivery Network) is for the websites with high traffic. It means your website (or parts of your website) will be hosted on several servers around the world. When a visitor of your website requests a resource from the CDN, it will be referred to the server nearest to him, as to spread the server load over the different servers. This also has a speed advantage in that the nearer a server is located to the visitor, the less time it will take the visitor's PC to connect to that server. Cloud Hosting Cloud hosting is the most expandable type of hosting and consists of several servers acting as one. The CPU time and memory usage will be spread out over the different physical servers, so there is no bottleneck on a single server. Cloud hosting can be easily upgraded by adding additional servers to the cloud, which increases the CPU time and memory avaible. Please contact any Hosting Team moderator if you'd like to see changes placed here.

In the market for a new hosting provider

I have become dissatisfied with iPowerWeb as I am now unable to load text files into my db's through PHPMyAdmin. I cannot get a straight answer from them as to why this has changed. I'd be happy to load it from the command prompt if they offered that, and the LOAD DATA INFILE method is locked down as well. They offer a buggy script that apparently does'nt support my tables design. So, I am in the market for a new hosting provider. I am looking for customer testimonials, not marketing pitches. Please no affiliate links or shameless plugs from hosting companies. Here is what I am looking for: 1. Linux/Apache 2. MySQL 3. PHP 4. Support for loading text files to MySQL either through LOAD DATA INFILE (either from the command prompt or a script) or PHPMyAdmin. 5. Web stats 6. Extreme reliability BTW, this is for my onlineshoppingexpress.com site. I have multiple other domains hosted by them that I would eventually move as they come up for renewal, so a multiple domain solution would be nice.

U.K. hosting plans needed

250 - 500mb space PHP >= 4 2-5 MySQL databases. Cron job support A few pop3 mailboxes 2 - 4 gig data transfer per month Preferably running a recent distro. of linux (cron). [mod_rewrite would be nice. Sane php config i.e. magic quotes off, reg. globals off] Domain name registration. U.K. based. Stable! I'm willing to spend about 50 a year, bit tight I know. Can draft in extra funds, so probably 50 to a max. of 75. Will keep in mind all posts; not able to sign up immediately, just checking out competition. This thread will be kept bookmarked for my future reference.
