I got a newbie question, i just want to ask which hosting would you recommend for my auction website as a start. it hosted on asmallorange (ASO) but with their no phone support im thinking on moving to different hosting. it doesnt have much traffic yet but im anticipating it will come.
To be honest, most phone support will ask you about your problem and then open a support ticket and tell you to wait for a response. Ticket Support is generally always the default when you have a problem.
As far as supporting your site, any quality shared host would be a good fit, but more details on your needs would be great, such as site size and any specific script requirements.
<<snipped>> And I agree with BeZazz, if you are happy with the services you are currently getting from your host, you shouldn't be quick to jump ship, unless there is an underlining issue you haven't explained.
Typically, you will want to start off with shared hosting. Then as your site grows you will want to move. Moving a website is fairly easy. Once you have outgrown shared hosting “a small orange” you will want to get a VPS “virtual private server” and then a dedicated server.
