I need a new host, my old host is having a lot of downtime.
I run a small internet busines selling sporting goods.
I need the following features
10Gb per month bandwidth
Dedicated/Static IP (as I have the checkout pages on SSL)
Ability to use SSL certificate I buy elsewhere
Minimum 3 add-on domains - I have one domain I keep for email and a friend has a small site on my webspace
Full error logs
cgi scripting - the shopping cart software uses a lot of scripting
Also I would like the site to be able to have the SSL pages in the same folder as the ordinary scripts, I can redirect the https in Direct Admin with my current host, instead of having a private_html folder, this works much better for me - its called a sumbolic link I think
I know that list is not a big ask but I want excellent uptime, thats the main thing
I don't need much support, I build the site myself
Please recommend a host with excellent uptime and has all these features.
I already did, they all claim 99.9% uptime, I want to know if anyone has experienced actual uptime near that figure
Good hosts will usually reach 99.9%+ yearly uptime. However, monthly uptime can vary and reach under 99.9% values from time to time.
Also, when a host has hundreds or thousands of servers, how much does one server's uptime (good or bad) mean? Of course this is relative as well. It will mean quite a lot to the customers on that server, especially if it's bad.
If you demand for good uptime, just ask for the host for uptime records.
