    Reliable Established Host

    I want to put the support desk for my current hosting company onto another server so that customers can get support even when the server is down. For this I need a small hosting plan on a fast server. I require:

    cPanel or HSphere
    100mb space
    5 GB Transfer
    1 MySQL database
    Fast server
    NOT SoftLayer datacenter (as that is where my other server is)
    99.9% uptime or better 100% guaranteed.

    I don't really need support, but I need people who aren't going to make a pig's ear of my site. I don't need any freebies, Fantastico etc. I don't want to pay a setup fee. The company must be established, financially stable and must not overcrowd their servers. SSH is a plus bit not required. No prepayments (beyond a month) of contracts.

    I need this as cheap as possible. I saw Swizi which appealed to me but they charge for setup.

    Any ideas?

    Those are simple requirments, try the shared offers section. TBH i would not pay for a host that goes bellow $5 (unless its a discount promotion). In my past i found that anyone bellow that, has bad uptime and etc and they have servers over crowded.

    There's a handful of good quality and well known hosts here that will fit your needs easily. I wouldn't call anything reliable cheap, especially if you want your support desk on there.

    Check for a host with a long history, you wont want to see your help desk disappear with another overnight flight host.

    Jedito I was looking at your post in the offers section and it interested me and I've just noticed your live chat is on so I'll chat with one of the guys on that and see where that leaves me.

    Apart from that, I really need names of companies I can look at.

    HostGator seems to be popular on these forums, have you though about looking at their website?

    Sonet7 are over my price range for this and have only 1 plan which is too big.

    Hostgator's $7 paid yearly is too much.

    Again, I need a small plan with a small price tag.

    How small exactly?

    Your requirements are decent enough, and you should have no trouble finding a web host. Try searching on www.findmyhosting.com
