    Question Looking for a "backup" host.

    I plan on bringing my dedicated server down this weekend and it could be offline for a few days while we do various testing. I want to keep my personal sites online so I'm looking for a cheap shared hosting account for them. Chances are I will not use any bandwidth after this week but I would like to keep it active incase I need to move my sites during any unforeseen events.

    I've found 1 host that fit my requirements perfectly (HostATree) but their order page does not work for me and I refuse to install another browser just to order something. Apparently this is a known issue that their WHMCS theme is incompatible with IE7 but I've already waited 3 days in hopes it might be resolved.

    I'm looking for a shared hosting account with a honest, reputable company that does not oversell their servers. I need at least 2GB of disk space, 10GB of bandwidth, and 20 add-on domains. Oh, and cPanel is also a must.

    So... any ideas? I've been scouring the advertisement section with no luck.

    Joe,

    There are plenty of companies out there that are reputable and reliable. Look for people who have been in the biz and have the most experience.

    Thanks!

    Less than $5/month, I know there are plenty out there but my main issue is the addon domains.

    I've realized after re-reading my first post that my request is a little unreasonable so I will lower my standards and revisit the advertisement section again.

    What you are looking for should not be an issue and anmy company should be able to create a custom plan for you. Best of luck.

    Thanks. I think this thread can be closed. I've found multiple possible hosts.
