I need low diskspace, 100GB+/month bandwidth hosting with PHP and MySQL
Hi, I'm in need of webhosting for a moderate traffic (currently 40GB/month, but growing rapidly) web site with minimal (<20MB) storage requirements. I need PHP4 or PHP5 and MySQL4 as well. Subdomains would be preferable and FTP is required. A free domain would be preferable as well. I'm considering the following two, if you have any experience with either let me know, also I'm open to suggestions...
PS: The hosting MUST be extremely reliable
inmotionhosting.com/basichostingplans.html The Personal Plan ($5.00/mo)
Those places there if you'd like a free domain..you'd have to pay yearly.These days domains come as low as 8 dollars or even lower..Most places offer a free domain on yearly hosting..only.20mb storage and 100gb bandwidth?that doesnt match up.If your site is growing...don't you think you'd need more diskspace?

No, I'm hosting a small amount of content for download (Nothing illegal), but it is a dynamically generated and cached file (using PHP/MySQL), the file itself is around 2MB, but my custom script takes up some space
It's not too heavy on the CPU, as it draws from a cache which is only updated every 2hrs. As for SQL connections, I'm not entirely sure, maybe 10-20 at a time. Not too heavy. Yes it's running fine on my current host, except I'm running out of bandwidth, and he cannot offer me more.
If your updates don't have to happen in one shot, it's not difficult to split tasks and make it less intense.
As you mentionned periodic updates, I'm gussing that you would use cron or something. Is it right?
Then it's very easy to modify the script to do it in steps, most probably.
Also, why not testing?
They provide money back guarantee, too.
So, I would just talk to them with the intention so that everyone knows each party is doing and run the update to see if it's acceptable for them or not.
I would pick a few hosts and test them one by one, or side by side, to see and compare.
You can ask them in their forum and/or other means of contact, or the CEO? of iweb may come and explain to us about that 2% thing.
I was wondering about that one, a bit , too.
But I thought I will find out when I get my account next year.
