7. Server should be fast with almost no downtime
8. Emacs support will help.
9. Flexible to add and manipulate some entries for the domains like changing MX records or A records.
10. .htaccess should be supported
Can anyone help me on this. It will be a great help.
Thanks, I will surely do that. I am browsing other sections of this forum to know more about it. Is there a section where I can get the list of hosting companies and thier overall feedback.
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.
