Please suggest a good host, which meets my needs.


Greetings,

Just to clarify I am not asking for hosting, I am simply asking if anyone knows of a host that meets these qualifications:

At least 5 gig of webspace;
At least 15 gig of transfer (BW);
Unlimited POP3 Email Accounts;
Unlimited branch FTP accounts (the ability to create users with their own subdirectory, preferrably inside of the main directory, not as a /~user in some other directory off of custroot);
PHP Capable (preferrably 4.3.4, but standard is fine);
CGI-bin;
Expedient and Supportive tech support
Will work with customer in installing necessary libraries etc. if needed by scripts if secure and safe to do so.
Less than $15/Month (Would prefer to pay by the year, possibly under $100/year)
Ability to host multiple domains
Ability to create own subdomains/users/emails/ftp accts etc...
prefer using Plesk Desk or some decent functional CPanel
Ability to house adult content, but NOT porn! (Creates chatroom avatars for people, and would like to be able to house them with no hassle)
Must be able to pay with Paypal.

Any information would be most appreciated!

For unlimited FTP accounts, I would suggest making a subdomain then an FTP account with the username identical to the subdomain name. That will work, but won't give you the power a normal reseller account would.

For multiple domains, do you mean like a reseller account? That'll tack on more to the price.

cPanel itself will be fine for your management needs, and by Plesk Desk do you mean PerlDesk? Plesk is like cPanel, whereas PerlDesk is a helpdesk.

Now, any reputable host will, in most cases, charge $1/GB for bandwidth, and give you a 1:10 ratio on space. Hence, you would expect around 1500MB space. However, for 5000MB of space, the price will go up. Overall, between bandwidth, space, and reseller abilities, $15 is very low for the requirements you have!

Either way, good luck with your search!

I cant recommend a host, especially in that price range, but...


The FTP functionality you require is inherent in the Hsphere control panel (as long as you have a static IP).

Best of luck in your search.

What do you mean by adult content but not porn I was unaware such a thing existed.

I would take a guess at adult products, services, or written content. Once, I even saw a serious forum for debates and the like considered adult material. I think that was an isolated case, however.

Lots of non-pornographic material is rated as adult (over 18) - ie) certain movies, discussion topics, etc...

Actually, I don't really need a reseller account, as I will not be reselling space, simply providing small amounts of space for friends and the like. As for adult content, I mean artistic nudity, that is not sexually based. No sex, simply nude form. I create art, and would like to display it privately on protected pages to people who actively seek out such things.

I don't think that I'm actually asking for the moon, I do suppose that 1500 meg would suffice. I generally go through cyberjad.com however they have not been responding to me lately, so I am moving on.

Any assistance would be excellent.

I would suggest that you raise your monthly budget no less than two or three times that what your current budget it. The saying goes, "You get what you paid for". Pay little money for alot and you'll most likely be upset at the host. We see it alot around here.

I could squeeze you in at 3GB space at and 15GB bandwidth at that and there are probably some others that could do a similar package.

That's a pretty low budget for 5 Gb diskspace... BW is pretty much ok, diskspace requirement is steep in just $15/mo.

The type of ftp accounts you need is how DirectAdmin CP allows. Even dathorn.com and crediblehost.com, which are lowbudget favourites, don't fall in that range.

The budget is pretty low. I doubt you would find any decent host with that price range.

Anyhow, there are a lot of hosts that do around that price range. Best of luck!

You can go through the Offers section and contact few who fits some of your requirements, so that you can discuss the rest of your requirements.

Crediblehost used to be a favorite but actually, they have been having problems lately that have lasted for weeks. They recently moved customers to other servers to resolve the problems, but after a couple of days the problems are back. Sites are down, email not working, etc. Search other threads in these forums for problem reports. I cannot recommend them at this time.

Although I would agree with others, that your price to features ratio are not quite in line, I wanted to mention that you will need a Dedicated IP address, to provide the type of FTP service mentioned.

Unlimited anything, when it comes to Server resources, is not something a Hoster can provide. You may be setting yourself up for a fall, Durriken, if you choose that type of Hoster. That's just me though.
