    In need of a reliable VPS host

    I currently have my site with Apollo servers and their reliability has gone to pot lately. My site has been down four times in the past month and usually for over 24 hours each time.

    Can anyone recommend a reliable host?

    My current plan runs me $89. a month and I'd like to stay in that ball park amount.

    My site takes up about 1.5 GB of disk space and uses around 100 GB of bandwidth per month.

    I have a catalog, UBB Threads Forums and various info pages.

    I would also like to find a host that can move the site for me from Apollo to the new host.

    Thanks.

    I suggest you search for some 2GB managed VPS there should be several providers around who fit your budget.

    Do you need it to be managed for you? Do you require a control panel?

    With a budget like that you could definitely find a reliable host that you are looking for. Have you tried looking at the offer forum?

    You can surely find good offers, your needs in terms of resources are pretty limited and your budget is even high in my opinion.

    You should invest the extra money you are willing to spend with a managed, reliable provider.

    If you want your new host to move your current VPS from your old host you will need to go with a new host that has the same kind of platform.

    E.g. If your current host uses Virtuozzo/OpenVZ then it would be best to look for a new host using the same. That way the hosts should be able to arrange for a backup/migration.

    What VPS software is your current Apollo VPS using?
    Deasoft.com Australia & USA Hosting - cPanel, WHM, VPS
    Software - WHMreseller - WHMexec - KVZcloud
    Host Repo - The Linux Web Host Knowledge Repository

    Have you looked in the offer forums here at WHT? There are a many reputable providers, if you find an offer you like just post a thread asking for opinions on some specific hosts.

    There are heaps of offers in the VPS offers forum to suit your needs.

    You could probably find one for a much cheaper price than that too.

    Most provider offer free migration, so you might want to contact your future provider.

    I agree and with your budget you're not going to have a problem finding a good host for that price. Of course none of us can recommend our own services in this forum but I can say from personal experience I always had good luck with Spry.Com.

    Your needs (just need to know how much ram you need) seem very reasonable. I second the recommendation of taking at look at these three for fully managed:

    Knownhost
    ServInt
    WiredTree

    If you don't need managed then take a look at:

    Slicehost
    Linode

    Good luck!
