    Cheap but Quality host using Image Magick

    Hello,
    I'm looking for a new webhost.
    I have 3 sites, 1 on Ipowerweb and 2 on Godaddy. (using 4 domains)
    They are great, but I would like to consolidate them to save some money.

    The problem is, one of the new sites Requires ImageMagick 6.3.5 or higher installed. I can't live without it.

    I've found 4 sites that have that version or will install it for me: VistaPages.com, HostPapa.ca, HostICan.com, and MidPhase.com.

    Vistapages was looking great, until I started reading about their downtimes. If you have any insight into these 4 hosts, I would like to hear about it.

    Otherwise, can anyone recommend a decent site for under $8/month that has ImageMagick 6.3.5 or higher installed?

    Some other requirements include Mysql, PHP 5, phpMyAdmin, cron jobs, php.ini access, .htaccess access, multiple domain pointing.

    If you are using a host that meets these requirements, I would love to hear about it. I'm tearing my hair out here! Thanks!

    Hello!
    I think that you have great list of web hosting companies and now you can do your own invistigation on them.
    And quality and cheap are the words which cannot be put together while web hosting discussion

    I know cheap and quality don't go well together. I just meant that I would like the most bang for my buck. I've began researching these and many others. I'm just curious if anyone has any good suggestions. Thanks again.

    Common mistake of people looking for a host. Just search for a host fitting your needs, are you really going to use 300 GB of space and 1 TB of bandwidth? probably not, then, don't search for a host offering since you're going to pay it in stability and reliability.

    Agree, it's so important that you pay for the stuff you actually need. some of the webhosting companies provide the least options with lower price, you can use your basic account and upgrade it as your website grows.

    Better you look for affordable quality hosting provider rather than going for cheap one or you wont get the better uptime!

    A lot of hosts have ImageMagick installed on their web servers. But to be sure, just email them prior to ordering.

    Most hosts have ImageMagick Installed. Just try to search around the offers section get a list of hosts and narrow down to the best one.

    Most hosts have GD or ImageMagick these days, they're so common that almost every other account needs them. Should not be too hard to find.

    Goodluck with your search but the 'most bang for the buck' theory should be tossed out if you want a good host

    i've found the support at hostican to be quite good and they seem to really be actively trying to promote themselves as a host that has better support than the other discounters. So far i have found this to be true.

    Jedito is absolutely right. You have to ask yourself if you think you'll ever come close to consuming all those resources. That's not to say you may not be able to find both stability, reliability and huge account resources, but chances are you'll wind up in a happier hosting situation if you focus your efforts more on a host's support, service, etc. as well as server uptime. Narrow it down a bit on these boards, then send some pre-sales emails, go to their sites and see what their customers say about them etc., search for reviews elsewhere as well.You should have no trouble finding an inexpensive, quality, reliable host that supports ImageMagick. Good luck!

    Another thing that you should consider, is the support service, I heard about many big companies that don't offer an appropriate support over their services, so be careful about it and don't be deceived by high amount of disk space and bandwidth and etc.
