    Friend, looking for Shared Hosting

    I have a friend of mines that needs hosting for his personal sites.
    It's a local business, so, it's not like he needs a dedicated box with 100% uptime.

    Right now, the host he is with....is kind of yucky to say the least and he wants to move.

    His current hosting specs.

    Using 2GB of space (he wants at least 3GB)
    15GB of bandwidth (he wants at least 25GB)
    20 Subdomains
    10 mysql databases (most of these are for testing purposes only)
    10 addon domain (he wants like 15 or something....)

    It has a forum, couple of WP driven sites.

    Right now, for the month of December,
    he has a total 37,000 Unique visitors a month total for all his sites

    I told him about my current host, but he didn't like the speeds.

    What is his budget? That will determine which host gets recommended. The higher the budget, the more likely he is to end up with a better host.

    Currently, he pays, $100 a year.
    I'm guessing he wants to stay near that area.

    He should have no trouble finding a decent host with that budget. Try dotable.com.

    dear 40sixty,

    this is holiday season and you can find some good offers with some discount out there, but make sure the uptime,support,security etc. as well.

    With that kind of budget you will find a PERFECT host. Make a list and narrow down to the best host by using the search on this forum.

    Hi,

    As his specs/usage and budget, I see he can void oversellers.

    "but he didn't like the speeds."? Where is he accessing from? So is he looking for faster speed than reliability/uptime?
