    When you say "EXCELLENT 24/7 LIVE tech support" are you looking for live chat or phone?

    Most hosts will not want to handle high priority emergency issues over live chat. It just isn't efficient or helpful to getting the issue resolved the quickest.
    Using the ticketing system of 24/7 staffed host will get you the attention of all available technicians as well as provide an accurate and up to date history throughout the ticket. This means there is accountability and points of reference later on.

    Most any hosting company will be able to meet your requirements jharris387. You should make sure you specify whether you need to have a private server to server connection (private network for example) in addition to the normal access to the Internet.

    Tickets are better seeing as most decent companies have ticket alerts go to their phones or another high availability contact method.

    A phone number is always good too.

    One really good company is either PacificRack or SuperbServers

    I know SuperbServers just put out a 4,000GB Bandwidth on there minimum package list and they have buy one get one free. The one bad thing about them is that for support you have to buy support tickets if its unmanaged, I never was charged for anything.

    PacificRack has really good prices and good deals I'd also check them out, there speeds and support ticket replies are really fast.

    Those are the real only two I could recommend to you.

    I would suggest looking for a provider that works with SLA's. This way you are 100% sure that you have a response within the guaranteed response time. The price might be much higher than the server without SLA, but I don't think that's going to be an issue if you want to get helped during and after business hours

    Good luck with your search for a good host, I hope you will find a good one that's reliable.

    Ps: Have a look at the advertising section here on the forums, there might be a good host there that has the "all in one" package.

    Steadfast, http://www.steadfast.net, can definitely help you out. They have their personnel on site 24/7. PM the owner Karl, he is usually on the forums. Their site definitely has the servers you require and they have managed or unmanaged services.

    Hello,

    Plenty of provider here on WHT can offer what your looking for.

    Beware of users posting recommendations (most of them arent even client)

    Do you have a preference on where your server should be located? east or west coast?

    Are going to manage your own server or need an managed solution?

    Cheers.

    Even if they may not be clients, a lot of people frequent these boards. They see which hosts get bashed on a lot and those that are praised a lot. Therefore, they can recommend the proper host based on other posts about that company. Yes, there are people out there that recommend just anyone but some do actually take note of which hosts are praised and which ones get bashed. Can't throw us all in one category.

    Actually, you need to have first hand experience with a host before you can recommend them. Making a recommendation based on only forum posts and thigs you have heard is not allowed at WHT as per the forum rules.

    There are a lot of hosts here on WHT that will be able to help you out. What are you looking for cost wise? If you gave a ballpark maybe that would help narrow your search down so someone could give you a quote. TheServerExperts had a lot of good questions that will help you find what you're looking for

    Forgot to add that fact, WHT doesn't allow recommendations without first hand experience.

    I am aware but some people will do it anyway. Just speaking in generalities.
