Hi all! I'm new to WHT. (Though Chicken has probably seen me hanging out at FWS.)
Anyway, I have a client hosted on Your-site.com, and they've been having consistent POP email problems -- timeouts everyday. Now, the boss is assigning me a second design and hosting gig, but he wants it hosted somewhere else -- preferably cheaper, with more reliable POP and SMTP service, and webmail if possible.
If the boss likes the service of this second host, he'll have me move the first one (the one at Your-Site) to the new host too.
So far, I've looked over Hostiva, Valuablehost, CrazyHostGuy, and Tacidblue. (No, I'm just kidding about that last one.)
- at least 30MB space
- at least 2GB bandwidth
- 10 POP email addresses
The client is an advertising video production studio in Manila, so there'll be a lot of MPEG portfolio samples and Flash, but no scripting or e-commerce features needed, and traffic won't be anything monstrous. What the boss does
want is reliable and easy-to-use email for his employees. Nothing fancy, really, and I know there's a lot of hosts out there which offer this. But is there something with which I'm assured of lasting and reliable stability?
Recommendations and feedback are appreciated. Thanx!
