Hi I am currently in a dilemma I would like to get a webhosting server near to home but the costs are twice as much than the USA but I only have around 3 or 4 websites.
The website that may cause me the most issue is a clan website we use for redirects to a couple of gameservers the redirect works like this if a user does not have a file when they connect to the gameserver it redirects their download to the website and the users spends a few seconds / mins downloading the required file and then join the gameserver when they have the needed files.
A VPS would be able to run the websites two are basic html websites and one is currently just used for an email account and the last one is the clan website that has a phpbb forum on which also does the redirects.
Would a VPS be able to give a good enough speed for downloads tough or do you think what I have or would I be asking to much of a VPS to do this all at once?
Any input and ideas would be greatly appreciated I have been looking around the UK, France, Germany and other places for hosting to find a reasonable package.
A big reseller account would easily handle your requirements but then again a VPS would give you root access and many more features.
Good luck with your search

id get a high grade vps, doesnt hurt, better then to go big and not need it then go small and end up with memory allocation problems.
A big reseller may do it unless you start using a lot of bandwidth and resources then you may find yourself suspended. Always better to have your own box, vps is closest thing to one.
funtoosh has some killer gigeservers vps at sh3lls.net I recently got one for customers with ddos problems and its been great. If you want the protection and stable network then anything on gigenet is what I reccomend.
Oh id like to add, I got the $90 plan and have had some huge apache floods get by but that is nothing ddos protection can cure, anyway I have been able to go in and ban them and get everything straightened out without any memory allocation errors, its about as good as having a low end server
