I am looking for a reliable virtual hosting account, anywhere outside of Texas. Europe would be fine too.
I have been using Dedicated Servers for the last 6 years and have gotten quite out of touch with the Virtual Hosting Market. I just need a mirror in case something happens with my servers in Texas.
I been going through the Web Hosting Forum and the Shared Hosting Sales Forum but in Web Hosting Forum, I hardly see any good reviews and in the Sales Forum, there are so many new names to new posts with virtually no reply too.
So I am not too sure who is good nowadays. I don't need anything fancy since it would be basically all static.
you could get another provider based in texas, just in a different datacentre maybe.
who are you currently hosted with? I see batchimage.com is currently with theplanet (servermatrix.com). Server matrix have 4 datacentres, so going with a host who has servers with them, you could ask to be hosted in a datacentre of theirs thats different to the one your currently hosted in.

Yup, I currently got a server in DLLSTX 2 and another one in DLLSTX 4. Basically, I've already mirrored the site between the two servers.
As for Space, I would probably need about 300mb or so and bandwidth something within the 10 to 20gb should be more than enough. It would be a backup just in case my servers in The Planet goes down so it can do a switch over. Other than that, it would probably not be used.
So far I have not experience any downtime with The Planet for the past year or so but I just want to be careful.
Come to think of it, maybe something in Europe might be nice so I could cater for the european customer base.
