I am conducting a research project to get a host that could handle a company with huge expectations (after 3 years of R&D and product release this Fall).
Does anyone know of a 99.9 server uptime host who matches this criteria?
· Uptime – at least 99.9%
· Data Transfer/Month – currently guestimated to be over 100
· Data Transfer Rate - currently guestimated to be at least 10 Mbps
· Technical Support via phone - 24/7 Pay $$$ for great support
· Space 100-200 MB (currently only using under 30 MB)
· Using LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP)
· Undecided on Shared, VPS, Co-location, or dedicated server. · · Recommendations are appreciated.
Background of our needs:
We are an upcoming direct response marketing company; our product will initially be sold via infomercials directing audiences to our web site to view a 4-5 MB flash file. We are initially anticipating spikes of 100-250 viewings/hour during broadcast of infomercials.
Anyone have recommendations of what hosts to seriously analyze?
For your transfer month you're talking about over 100gb? Also, how much storage are you looking for? A fully managed VPS solution is probably right for you or a semi-dedicated hosting plan. I'd say try using the Host Quotea feature above first and see what offers you get. Good luck.

I'd also look over the VPS offers section, When you think you like a host search for any reviews posted and see what kind of moneyback guarentees they offer etc.
All the best with finding a hosting provdior.
I would suggest a dedicated server now as it sounds like you have the money for it if you have put this much into the company so far why be skimpy to save a couple hundred dollars a month when you could run on a dedicated for a little more
