Looking for new hosting for multiple sites, advice required.


Hi,

I have around 25 websites/domains and im currently on a VPS. I would much rather get 2 sub $14 multi-domain accounts and split the sites over the two. I was looking at places such as site5.

I need about 5gigs of space on each of them, bandwidth isnt a problem as they are low traffic and low bandwidth. I just want a no-frills hosting solution that i can rely on not getting susspended for cpu or ram usages and such.

I have been concidering going back to hostgator on their $14.95 plan however wanted some advice from people here first.

Thanks for your time,

Rick

I've seen mostly bad reviews about Site5. HostGator has both good and bad reviews. Are you looking to use more CPU than your fair share on a shared server? If so you'd need to look for a big company using powerful servers otherwise just check the offers section.

I've used HostGator before and found no issues...in fact they were one of the best i've used, however im looking into alternatives.

CPU usage is likely not to be over the average, however i have heard that hosts such as lypha and dreamhost will susspend for minor CPU overages...thats why i bought it up.

The offers section for shared and reseller hosting is mainly poor start up's - im not interested in hosts without any reputation and whome have not been in biz for a long period of time.

Sounds like you should go with HostGator

DownTownHost host my support desk (cheaper than buying another server in another datacenter just for that). They've been good so far and they've been around for some time.

There are a lot of very small hosts in the offers section but certainly not all. Even people's sigs have some nice links sometimes

If you need 5 gigs of space for each of your 25 websites, I would recommend going with a Dedicated Server...

I think he means 5gb space on each multi-domain / reseller plan. 5Gb plans are easy to come by and it shouldn't be hard to find on < $14/Mo.

If you have a lot of sites a reseller is better and cheaper. Check the hosting section and people's sigs for reseller offers.

Please tell me you are kidding? I have all the sites on a 512mb VPS at the moment and our load is at 0.1-0.2 and mem usage is 18%

A dedicated server would be stupid as i would not use 5/6 of the space/resources.

A reseller plan would also be an option. Has anyone had any experience with downtownhosting.com - they have been in biz for a good few years however dont seem to have a front here at WHT...any one used them?

Thanks

RMWebs as I said previously I have used them for my support desk. Haven't been with them long but they're good.

They seem pretty good, i just had a chat with their sales rep over live help & he/she was very helpful. They even give SSH on request! This would help as i have a few gigs of data to transfer to whoever i go with.

Going back? Why did you leave in the first place?

ye, stick with hosts you know. There's so many pretend ones out there that it's not worth trying something new if you're satisfied with one already.
