View Full Version : Need a good host
10-13-2004, 11:23 AM
Im currently with powweb and they just keep getting worse and worse. Slow load speeds, poor uptime etc. Can anyone reccommend a good host and can you give me any tips on streamlining the transfer. This is for my primary money site and if something happens to it I will be living in a van down by the river, literally.
Thanks in advance

Our site has been on Alentus since April - the only downtime we have experienced since then lasted 14 minutes while they did a "much-needed" reboot of that server. I have been using InternetSeer to monitor our uptime.

I do hosting as well. See my signature for the link.
You should take a look at webhostingtalk.com lots of information and experiences out there. My advice for a good host is, if it sounds to good to be true it usually is.
If you care about speed, uptime, support and even if your host still is alive after a week when you paid for 2 years in advance then just go for the better known companies and so pay a little more.
I like mediatemple a lot. They give huge discounts if you pay for 2 years in advance, otherwise they are pretty pricey.

I am currently using aplus.net and I am happy with the service, their prices are very competitive and have a 30 day money back guarantee as well as 24/7 free technical support, you can also get a very good bargain for domain name registration there if you need one.
