Hello all !
Here is my story:
I have a Professional account with liquid web, great support ! but my account was canceled (and activated back) because I was using to much Mysql resources.
I dont have a lot a traffic, but the Mysql access from my scripts is kind of intense.
It's kind of an auction web site !
I want to look other options !
I need all the usual stuff, email, ftp, etc.
and of course php and Mysql !
really good data transfer !
HD space > 40 gigs
Memory =< 512 Megs Memory.
Managed server !
Good technical support !
Transfer of my domain !
Since I don't have experience with dedicated servers, I would need one with a control panel to administrate it.
Budget no more than $130 month but cheaper would be nice.
that's funny, about 2 years ago, i was looking to move my php/mysql auction site to a pro account at liquid web, but, decided i'd write them about the site first. the only response i got back was "the use of resource intensive scripts are not allowed on our virtual accounts".
so, i immediately went to a small RAQ4 W/512mb ram. worked perfectly fine.
however. in your case, if you do not have the experience of a dedicated machine, you may want to look into a good VDS (virtual dedicated system) somewhere. you have a good amount of resources to use, few other users on the system, good bandwidth, and the host looks after the box...
