View Full Version : Which host?

10-13-2005, 07:04 PM
Just curious to see where all the pros here at websitepublisher host their site.

Currently I'm with Intersabre, which is my first host for my first and currently only site...and IMO its great. I pay 29 dollars a year for what I think is a ton of features. But I've got right now about 4 sites in the pipeline I'm hopeing to publish and just want to see what else is out there.

I lease servers from Ev1Servers.net and BurstNET (phasing these out and moving everything to EV1). Currently have 4 servers with EV1 and .... 5-6 with BurstNET -- just waiting for the credit on my account to run out.

I use RackSlash, they've been amazing so far. I also signed up with Incognito Networks which I regret.

I use hostgator, reseller account - 24.95/month. Had no probems, good tech support etc...

ServerMatrix.com and ThePlanet.com

Same company different divisions. I`ve used EV1/RackShack, BeachComber, and a few others and SM/TP support is superior as well as price and product.

I think I have 5 servers maybe 4.

I am currently hosted at ResellerZOOM.com and have few complaints. For the price I am paying, the service is quite nice for hosting many websites. Sometimes the servers can be a bit slow but for $10 or so per month, its not bad at all.

I'm using www.bluewho.com - very pleased with them. I'm using the $20/m reseller account.

Hostgator seem to have all good reviews, so I might go with them if I had to move - you seem to get a bit more for your money than with bluewho.

I think I have 5 servers maybe 4.

I'd love to be able to say things like this in the future :)

I use webcs.com. Have for years. You definitely pay for what you get but if you want to stay up and have people who care, great place.

I use Site5.com - exceptional.

I lease 5 servers from Ev1.

Dedicated servers are really the way to go, no 200 sites on a single server, no having to get a new account for each new website.

One thing to consider would be sharing a server with friends if you do not need all of it now.

10-20-2005, 05:59 AM
Maybe some people from the forum should get together and get a dedicated server.

Slightly off topic, but what software do you use to manage your dedicated servers? Do you use a cpanel/whm kind of setup or just use linux via ssh?

Ideally dedicated server is essential for larger sites; just make sure you choose the right type of server for your needs. While a dedicated server offers many benefits, it also presents a challenge: you will take on some of the responsibility for managing it. :)

ev1 for a long time. Their backup service is a huge plus.

I host with Nexcess, I cant say enough good things about them.

10-21-2005, 02:48 PM
I use a $7/month reseller at http://hostww.net/ . Only been on it for a month but no problems so far with the few small sites I've put up.

my name is shane...check these out.

I currently use a reseller account from SharkSpace.com (https://www.sharkspace.com/affiliates/idevaffiliate.php?id=1214) formerly SJR Hosting.

They've been excellent!

08-20-2006, 01:02 PM
ive been using siteground.com and everything has been great

08-20-2006, 01:04 PM
After Emancipator's suggestion I went with Nexcess about six months, and having nothing but good to say about them. Everything is great, support replies nearly instantly. Love it :)

is that claim that site 5 makes about having very few sites hosted on each server and it makes the hosting faster TRUE?

Site5 is offering a silly deal right now - $5 a month if paid in advance for 24 months and some silly bandwidth and space. 55GB of storage and 5TB of transfer.

I have heard good things about Site5 for small sites but all that for $5 seems unlike one of the more reputable providers.

Tempted to go for it for a new shop site, but would rather get a more realistic plan for the same money if performance suffers - thoughts?

11-06-2006, 12:20 PM
I've been with site5 for two years now and they've been great, and yes, they do have a small number of sites per server, from what I've seen of my acount and the accounts of clients I've worked with who host there. They've been very reliable and good about support whenever there is a problem.

when i get a dedicated server i keep hearing that i need to manage it myself? what do you mean by that. The company wont give me support to install things and what not, what company can i get a dedicated for if i dont know much about dediciated servers

12-06-2006, 02:16 PM
There are managed server companies, but they usually cost an arm and a leg. For instance Rackspace is managed but compared to Ev1 they offer like 1/100th the bandwidth at 10x the price.

I think a better option is to get the cheap Ev1 server and hire a third party management company to handle non-hardware problems/installs (ev1 still handles hardware).

I use Pair networks (http://pair.com). Currently I'm on a shared "HV1" (high volume) account but have been considering shifting to a dedicated server to improve database reliability. Their dedicated servers are fully managed and have an entry level price of $250 per month. If my traffic significantly picked up such that the higher hosting fees wouldn't be felt so much, I'd go to a dedicated server in a heartbeat so that my site's didn't fall victim to server downtime caused by someone else.

12-09-2006, 02:39 PM
Chris can you send me some links for third party management for the ev1 server

dam 99 bux a month, thats more then the hosting of an EV1 lol.
