We currently have a Mediatemple dv server (the base version, 512mb ram, 30 gb disk, 1tb network) for $50 usd a month. We're basically maxing out our RAM with mysql and php-cgi instances with about 15 domains.
We could easily upgrade and go for 100 usd a monhth option, but for that amount of money, it doesn't seem like you get a lot for your money.
I've been looking around and I'm tempted by fasthosts (most of our web sites are based in europe so thats a plus). Does anyone have any experience or other suggestions?
Mediatemple's ve also tempted me, but I'm not sure I can be bothered to set everything up, and Plesk's migrate feature is a massive bonus.
FastHosts? You gotta be joking surely? There's a thread in the shared hosting section about them at the moment.
My only dealings with them has been accessing client's domain names for changing DNS.....and every time I have to do it, it becomes a marathon of endurance. Particularly if you have to contact their "support".
For around the price you mentioned you can get a 2GB VPS from Futurehosting located in Rapidswitch Maidenhead....now you're talking quality host.
