    Need Reliable Host

    So I am back in the market for a webhost. I had been on a vps since earlier this year, but now I am looking to downgrade to a shared host with unlimited addon domains and allows adult hosting.

    None of my sites are busy, but maybe that will change if I get some time in the future.

    I do not want to pay out my nose, but I also do not want to get going with a one man band either. A established host with a good track record is what I need.

    Space? ~10Gb+
    BW? 50Gb+

    cPanel or DirectAdmin preferred.

    Price: Less than $10/mo

    Thanks!

    I would suggest you to search for customer reviews. There many quality web hosting providers around so it is really up to you to choose one. I don;t think that one would be very different from another unless they would do some customization for you. However it is hard to provide customization on hosting services that cost less than $10/mo. Go to offerings, pick up some names and then check what do people say about them.

    Now that was fast all right. 15 minutes to choose a host must be some sort of record.

    It is better to read the thread fully before posting your opinions. You can see that he has already selected his host.

    I didn't know HawkHost allowed adult content, so that's interesting. Good luck with them and be sure to keep us updated!

    Thanks guys. I went on the search right after I posted here.

    I had planned on moving to a shared account with ubiquity from my vps, but found out that the plan I was looking at which is shown at $7.99 is really like $15.99 if payed by the month plus a $20 setup fee.

    I choose hawkhost because of good reviews I seen here, and the fact they have trac and svn.

    There TOS does not appear to indicate no adult content allowed, and that requirement may be a mute point at this time anyways.

    Thanks again.

    We do not restrict legal content. That's a slipper slope to go down as we'd be scanning user content looking for it. If we weren't scanning for it we would end up not catching anything. So that's why we have the policy we have. That being said we do not advertise we allow adult content anywhere or anything else for that matter. We simply say we allow legal content where the servers are located.

    And I talked to the president of the company about that policy and he said what we're doing is fine. We covered our bases with regards to that don't worry. Others have also backed up that policy is more legacy or against people who are strictly adult hosting / sites.

    That's an interesting policy. I am curious about their reasoning behind that.

    I've spoken with them about it as well, I was just making the point that a site based purely around Pornography would violate the EULA but LST also mentioned to me that they won't go after a web host that happens to host a few adult oriented sites

    It is in the EULA and unless you have it in writing and signed saying otherwise they could theoretically terminate your licenses if they wanted Realistically you pay them enough money I doubt that would ever happen.

    Wasn't putting down your service, just bringing up the point

    As am I. I can see a webhost barring it because of possible issues with network traffic, but for a software that servers webpages to ban it, seems like more of a "push our beliefs off onto anybody who uses our software" thing.

    I agree and here's an interesting thread about it in the dedicated server forum.
    What's your budget?

    Seriously, what's your budget?
