Most reliable Grid/Clustered provider?


Hi,

Looking for a reliable Grid/Clustered shared hosting provider.

My budget: ~ $20 /month

Specs:

2GB+ diskspace
20GB+ monthly traffic
3+ domain
10+ IMAP e-mail accounts
MySQL/PHP5/Perl 5
CP: DirectAdmin/cPanel/Other custom

Well that's about it. I need a reliable provider, with secure e-mail hosting (uptime)

Any suggestions?

Hi,

Are you looking for a clustered shared hosting solution only? As I believe for what you need you might be better off with a Virtual Server as you should be able to get a decent package for your price range in terms of a managed VPS Otherwise you should do some research on clustered hosting providers for one that suites your needs as well as have the most experience in clustered hosting.

Good luck

A few clustered providers: Cartika, MediaTemple, iMountain.

Do your research around the forums on these hosts and i'm sure you'll find which ones best for you. Media temple's MySQL servers are pretty slow from what I've heard, though they'll be a pretty decent choice for you if your site isn't database intensive.

I would agree with Cirtex. VPS with good backup is all you need. Unless you have a site that traffic intensive I don't see a requirement for clustered hosting.

$20/month probably would not pay fro a true grid service. Anyway, the one offered by Netfirms (called Enterprise) worked Ok for me when I was running an image hosting site. Now, I think it starts at $50 per month, though, so it is out of your budget.

2 GB disk space and 20 GB transfer and the recommendations are VPS? OK, I know there arent alot of clustered providers - but for Pete's sake - this certainly isnt a VPS requirement. Any decent shared host without oversold servers can accomodate this requirement reliably. A good clustered provider can probably give you better performance and reliability - but, still quite confused on the VPS recommendations here - doesnt seem to make alot of sense....

You could check out Reseller Zoom's failover hosting (it's somewhat comparable to a cluster)

http://resellerzoom.com/failover-technology.shtml

I believe that a starter VPS would be a good fit for you. You would have root access to the server to control the features you need but without the high cost of a dedicated box or risk of shared hosting (I assume you're worried about downtime which is why you are thinking of the cluster).

Yes, I worry about downtime. Lately I've been on 3 hosts (with different domains on each). I won't mention any names here, but they're quite known among the users of this board. They all offer "Non Overselling" host packages. However downtime like 2-3 hours each 3rd or 4th week is not a good thing for me. I rely very much on my e-mail as my clients are in need to get in touch with me. Of course, a nice reliable VPS solution would be good to me.

Well, I will be looking around the net in search of a new host and maybe need to increse my budget.

Hello RJPA

Maybe you should mention their names then because 2 to 3 hours of downtime every month is not indicative of a good shared hosting provider

Many shared hosting providers can prove much better uptimes then that .... And especially those running stable clusters

Look at hosts like downtownhost digitally justified medialayer bluefur rochen etc (I don't even think any of these are even running clusters)

Don't waste your time with hosts who can't verify uptime stats to you via a reliable method for a decent amount of time

Promising undersold services and 99.9 uptime and consistently not being able to deliver is no better then hosts offering massive packages with super restrivtive tos

A managed vps may sound nice but it still isn't a fit here. Certainly go for it if you want buts its a sad day when hosts are recommending a vps for your requirements.. I mean why even offer shared hosting if you know you can't reliably meet these requirements in a shared environment

I strongly advise against ResellerZooms Failover hosting, the Fail in Failover is there for a reason.

Check out iMountain, i have heard nothing but good things about their clustered solution. I visit a site daily hosted there, and its always up and functioning extremely well.

Than obviously you have no clue what clustering is, or what a grid setup consists of.

It's about scalability and redundancy. It's not necessarily about resource usage. Anybody can tell you that a single VPS on a single server is NOT redundant. You guys should know a little bit about what you guys post.

BTW, I recommend Cartika.

Shared hosting can be reliable. You just have to find the right host. If you aren't satisfied with shared though, I suggest moving to a low-end VPS which can cost less than $20/mo. You don't need redundancy if you have a reliable host.
