Hosting company with shell access, PHP, and postgresql
I am looking for a good webhosting company (Linux) that is fairly inexpensive (less than $12/month if possible) that provides shell access, PHP, and Postgresql. I have about 5 domains of low bandwidth and traffic.
I'm talking with AddAction.net and got separate answers from their support and sales staff. Support says no shell access, sales says yes. Sales says no postgresql support...support says there is.
panix.com in NYC is where many unix geeks go. the panix shell servers have most every known package installed and supported by the knowledgeable staff. they're a stub network of level 3. I don't know how it works for 5 separate domain names/websites, but a shell account costs $100 annually, and includes some hosting space/bandwidth.
It completely fulfils your requirements (SSH is also available for $2 USD/monthly) and as far as I know, their servers are in The Planet datacentre. According to [http://www.hyperspin.com/ranking.php?type=3]HyperSpin[/url] (if HyperSpin is reliable and trustworthy), they have also great uptime.
But also do a little SEARCH before you decide anything.
Check out http://www.superuser.net They offer shell access and very good prices. They have been around a long time (for a hosting company) and provide a fairly stable network. I haven't used them in a couple years, but still have friends that use them.
You should check TRU Networks. Their shared hosting packages meet all your requirements (including SSH for $2/month) and as far as I know, their servers are located in The Planet datacenter. Also, if HyperSpin is trustworthy, then TRU Networks is very reliable.
But before you decide anything, do a little SEARCH, while you are waiting for more replies to your thread.
