As the subject above, which one do you recommend? I was using dreamhost before and not having any problem with them, although I don't want to pay their full fee ($10/month). I don't need massive amount of bandwidth and disk space too.
Currently I'm on entry level VPS (128MB ram, 5GB space, 100 GB traffic). Because I'm old customer its only $12/month and new customer need to pay $20. The VPS service is really great, I never had major downtime since I'm starting using it more than a year ago. Plus, the flexibility is a major plus for me. I'm quite familiar with command shell in linux and I find it make things easier to do things.
I'm using the VPS primarily to use it as VPN gateway, but since I won't need the VPN service anymore on next month I'd like to downgrade to cheap shared host to host my personal, low traffic site. I think using a VPS to host just personal website just overkill.
Currently I'm trying one of free shared webhost offers on fwht and surprisingly it almost satisfy my needs (from disk space, site speed, bandwidth). But I do miss SSH access so I don't mind paying a few more bucks to have SSH access.
But I won't change it to shared host with similar price. I think 1-2 GB of space, 10-20 GB traffic with SSH access will satisfy my needs. I don't need bazillion GB of space etc, fancy control panel, one click installer, etc. I much prefer SSH access. I'm looking to at least half of my current VPS monthly fee (the cheaper, the better)
So, which webhost do u guys recommend? Or I'm just dreaming?
