    Post Looking for a PHP5/MySQL5 host.

    We have a small (2000-3000 users currently) website we've written for a community of users to send messages to eachother, save eachother to buddy lists, and keep notes about eachother.

    We have just finished a major update to the site with many new features and taken advantage of PHP5 and MySQL5 to do so, but our current host only supports PHP4 and MySQL4.

    We are willing to spend up to $75 a month on hosting. We're looking for shared hosting, not dedicated.

    Other than PHP5/MySQL5 the only other requirement is that we can use cron to schedule tasks.

    Does anyone have any reccomendations for a reliable, helpful service that meets our requirements?

    Thanks very much in advance.

    Do you have any space/bandwidth requirements and how many users are normally online in a 15 minute interval?

    There are no strict space requirements. It will take a while for our database to grow to a substantial size, so if we had 10-20GB+ we would be fine for a while.

    Currently at our peak of peaks we can see around 75 people online at once, but like I mentioned, this is peak, and doesn't happen often.

    I am unable to send you a private message (it says I do not have access). Would you mind either sending me a private message with your reccomendations or posting them here?

    Thanks in advance.

    They can't because you need to write at least 5 message in order of send or receive PMs.

    About your site, 75 users at the same time, is average? or peak?
