Hi everyone, been a lurker here in these forums for about a week, its great to see some quality discussion on hosting.
So i'll let people do me the huge favor of helping me out, if any of you don't mind. Here's what I plan to do:
Host multiple sites. One of the sites is "kinda big" and will be getting a lot bigger. I wouldn't hit a 2000GB bandwidth threshold for a few months, but after that i definitely would (so i am scared to hop around and would like to find something I can stick with long term).
I want what every generic poster wants. Fast, good reliability, good throughput for all hours, and cheap.
Thanks for the reply ... here are some more specifics:
Looking for Windows 2003 Web Standard
cPanel would be cool (not 100% necessary)
1GB Memory minimum
160GB hard drive
Bandwidth is the tricky thing ... my sites are all small but one is growing rapidly. I could definitely fit within a 1500GB cushion for the first 4 months, but after that ... not sure. I want a nice quick site, I see a lot of unmetered 10mbit or metered 100mbit, but as a n00b I'm trying to learn what would be best for my needs.
