    2) GD librabry
    3) Internet Explorer Installed (Most Important)

    Please Suggest!

    Are you sure about your requirements

    1) php.exec enabled ( to run a exe file )
    # I don't think you will find this on shared hosting enviornments.

    2) GD librabry
    # If is more popular on Linux Servers. Hard to find on Windows Servers.

    3) Internet Explorer Installed (Most Important)
    # What do you mean by that

    Well, to install Explorer I would go to the Microsoft site...
    But I prefer Firefox.

    If you really need Windows hosting you could take a look at Lunarpages, they offer both Unix and Windows hosting. Personally I've tried only their Unix variety though.

    agreed! I think you should re-think your requirements aswell. If not, check around the offers section in WHT, you may find some providers there that match your needs. Good luck!

    3l3ctr1c,

    not sure what you are up to, but perhaps setting up an applicatiom service providing Internet explorer usage over the internet f.e with vnc ?

    Or are you looking for an Internet explorer's server version (if that exists) ?

    Ok thanks for all the replies,

    Well yes I DO need php.exec but not on a shared, I know thats very hard to get it on a shared host, I'll prefer a VDS / VPS / Dedi.

    and also yes I do need IE installed because the exe file whcih I want only supports Windows and IE 6+ and I think that IE is normally installed by default by Microsoft on Windows 2003 servers..

    I know its a bit wierd but I want this....

    Well can I install/remove services and applications on a VPS / VDS ?

    Hello,

    You can go for dedicated windows server. Internet explorer will already be there in the server. PHP and GD library you will have to install.

    Mysitespace is a good hosting company that provides good dedicated servers.

    Thank you.

    Regards,

    You can install/remove services and applications on a VPS the same way you do for a normal dedicated server. IE is installed by default so thats not a worry. If you are getting a VPS you can install your own php , that would not be an issue.

    The only solution to your requirements is VPS or a dedicated server. No way you can do such things at Shared Hosting Accounts
