    Superb Managed Hosting Needed _I'm spoiled

    damn it...
    all what I wrote got lost when I hit the preview button.......arrrrgggg


    I'lll post this first and try to edit ... what a pain
    --------------------
    Now editing....wrote so much all gone..Ohh my god!
    Not same anymore.

    I try again to recapture the last 30 minutes - but not same
    =====================================


    I'm at the moment with onsmart .. love the support, best I can imagine.
    I'm a newbie started 2 years ago with the php bible (Leaon Atkisnon/Zeev Suraski) plus MySql etc...
    developed a couple of sites.

    nearly null idea about hosting/security/upgrade issues

    developed some applictaions using MySql (blob's) they like performance.

    AT the moment I have 2 shared accounts and several sub-domains hosted at onsmart.
    What a support - that's why I said in the headline I'm spoiled.
    They helped me so much, even fixed my wrong htaccess, etc. etc...
    Great guys nice, friendly and competent.

    But they don't offer Managed Server.

    I think now I need more performance and I really would like to add new websites on the fly.
    (got so many domain names which I need to utilize)

    requirements:
    better performance as shared hosting.
    space: at least 50+ GB
    bandwidth: at leats for the moment 50+
    taking care backups
    world wide high speed accessable, hardly downtimes (what would mean loosing customer)

    Support: 24 hrs, best with chat windows, can't use the phone where I am.

    Please help - to guide me in the right direction.
    (I promise whenever I'm more knowlegeable I will help people like me too)

    Thanks a lot in advance.
    Kindest regards
    sloft

    If your sites are not so busy, I recommend going for a managed vps instead of a dedicated server. A lot of good words have been said about Servint, PowerVPS, Liquidweb, to mention a few.

    highchief,

    Thank you very much for your reply and information.

    I will check the mentioned companies.

    Need to know if I can set up on a VPS hosting additional websites.

    Have a nice weekend

    Yes you can, but I'd suggest your check what each provider classifys as managed.

    They will manage the server/vps config but not individual website errors in most cases. Check out rackspace if you need your hand held with EVERYTHING.

    Well, if you are really looking for a "superb managed hosting" provider, be prepared to spend more than $200/month, specially depending on your hardware specifications and bandwidth requirements, amongst other points you should consider.

    RackSpace charges a lot more than most places. They average $2/gb for bandwidth.

    They do and they dont'

    The planet has fantastic high level support packages. But they're expensive (just like you're seeing here).

    I think they get a bad rap becuase their normal tech support has a tendency to be... well.... you know. But their managed systems and higher end support packages have GREAT service, super fast first response and direct contact to a real (not low level) technician.

    I would never have thought so, but try it once, they reall do have great high end service. At least from my experience.

    I did now an intermediate step and went for VPS hosting at the moment (a sugestion from a nice asian fellow).. which offfers upgrades up to dedicated managed hosting.
    Payed $55 (learning money) to a ok reviewed hoster mentioned a lot in the VPS section, no money back, gave it up after one week after sign-up - my VPS was still not functioning, (yes, the had HW trouble, note was down, etc.)
    I realized that I was very spoiled with my shared hosting support (best!) at onsmart.net at wooping ~$8/month.
    In this situation, I learned paying more doesn't mean equal good support.

    I digged more into this board and found (not very much mentioned) hosteasier.com,
    support isn't on such a personal hand holding level I'm used to, but so far straight to an explained solution.

    Moved over so far only a few of my none resource taking sites.
    Hope I'll be happy also after I moved my cpu/mysql intense sites.

    Thanks a lot for your feeback guys.

    Did you really read the the title of this thread?

    Unless EV1 is now providing managed hosting, I doubt you did so, plus this thread is some months old.
