    This is that section. A few comments regarding your requirements

    -Support: The best way to check response times is to send an e-mail to support and see how quickly they respond.
    -Uptime: Ask for proof. Everyone makes a guarantee
    -Unlimited is not a good word, I'm sure you don't use thousands of databases -- get how many you need, maybe a few extras, and just work with it.

    Now a question for you, why are you specifically looking for Linux + cPanel?

    In that case. Go with a managed dedicated server. You can configure it with whatever specs, OS, DB, etc. that you need or desire. You can search the Dedicated Server Forum to find out more about the merits of specific providers.

    You might also mention what kind of bandwith and storage you are looking for.

    Thanks for all your suggestions. I will surely look around. For dedicated servers, as of now I dont want to get into it.
