    New and need help

    Hello all

    I am new to hosting and need help. I have been all around the web looking for 3 or 4 good hosts to use. Thank god I found this site and realized that most of those top 10/20 sites I had been looking at are fixed. I just started doing freelance web design. After reading many posts, searching this site and going to the hosting companies site, I came up with four that I am looking at using. Can anyone here comment on if this sound like a good plan. Keep in mind, that I am also looking for a host with decent preinstalled script, so if anyone has used them, please comment. Here is the four....

    Myacen
    Site5
    Hosting Matters
    Future Quest

    Also was considering....
    OLM/Webaxxs
    Pair
    MediaTemple
    Dot5Hosting
    F5Hosting
    Tera-Byte

    Do you think that sounds good or should I move a couple around?

    Thanks (love the site and will definitely be back)

    BTW, if I am on the wrong board, I am sorry and please point me in the right direction

    Thumbs up

    Just about all the hosts you've mentioned have strong reputations.

    I would highly recommend Site5, having been with them in the past. Operations run smoothly and their staff are very well organized and professional.

    Peinstalled Scripts

    I was strongly looking at dot5 but I could not find any information on them having preinstalled scripts. Do you know if they do or not?

    Although this company is not on your list, I would recommend Dynasty Host. They have approximately ten auto-install scripts such as Invision Board, a chat-room and PostNuke.

    My time with them was mostly positive, except for a small incident.

    I've heard good things about Dot5Hosting, just to let you know.

    Just another note on Site5, they offer PHP-Autoinstaller, which installs such scripts as PHPNuke, PHPBB, etc...
