    Looking for a new host

    I am looking for a new host. My current host is was attacked a couple of days ago and I have been having database errors for days. Having a site that is almost 100% database driven this is a huge problem for me.

    I am looking for a Linux host which offers the following:

    3 - 5 gigs of storage
    70 - 90 gigs of transfer
    Cpanel
    PHP/perl/mySQL
    Unlimited Subdomains/Emails/Databases/add on domains/parked domains

    With this space I will be hosting at least three sites.
    1.) http://www.thekryptonian.com
    2.) http://www.wildewoodbc.org (a non profit church website)
    3.) http://www.bluemoosedesigns.net
    4.) http://www.aaronortega.com (which will be nothing more than a splash page once the bluemoose website is complete)

    Let me know if you need to know anything else.

    Hmmm.... all this, on a shared account? Well, I know DreamHost offers lots of space + bandwidth + multiple sites (I am personally running 3 sites on one account with them). Only thing I can come up with right now. Good Luck!

    I'd take a look into the Offers forum as a lot of hosts should be able to accomadate you.

    The ammount of money you would like to spend is very important, check out the hosting offers section and see what you can find. If you are looking for webhosting, you have come to the right place.

    Aaron, you may like to check out Vodahost. They have a plan that meets your requirement but read the Vodahost thread on this same forum first.

    Best wishes.

    I see they're offering WHM/Cpanel with shared plan. How long have you hosted with them ... and how is their tech support? Saw this Micfo Tech Support thread on the forum ...

    I would first like to say I am sorry to hear about your database issues and troubles. I know as a host and also as a person that needed to find hosting in the past you should maybe try to ask the support staff of the people you are looking to host with about their servers. Also run a trace route on the site and do a search on boards like this one and others to read the feadback about the new company. Most importantly talk to friends and others in the industry like myself to help you in formulating good solid questions for all perspective hosting companies since most of us have been there as well over the years.

    I would suggest looking at a reseller account for those as you get more control and most of the time a better price on larger packages like that.

    Just be sure you get those database errors taken care of before the move though. You will not be very popular if you accidently crash your new hosts servers because of it

    Good luck finding a new host.

    sandy54 would you mind sharing the site you have with this host? It might help the original poster by giving additional credibility to your post

    If you have to operate your company behind the scenes or under a fake name, maybe it's time to leave the industry and start something fresh.

    Sure, I'll share you 2. A friend of mine runs www.kocclan.com, and my roomate runs www.jkentrep.com. Both with webscorpion. Hope this helps...
