I'll be setting up Joomla on it. I'm just after recommendations for hosting companies, and what people's experiences with them have been.
Native space - our joomla site is hosted there
i would look into hosting it your self. this would give the added advantage of AD integration etc and more flexibility.
1and1 are good though.
I wouldn't bother hosting joomla internally, if it had been a moodle I'd have said that for the AD auth etc.
For joomla I'm assuming as a primary you don't have a massive internet connection upstream, losing this to casual website visitors probably isn't what you want whereas with a moodle it's less of a problem as the majority of visitors are internal.
Plus then there's one more worry of keeping the web server secure etc.
I would highly recommend Tsohost Web Hosting - ASP .NET, MSSQL, PHP, MySQL Support - Domain Registration - Dedicated Servers - Cloud Hosting
They are very stable and the best part is the super support.
I have my personal websites hosted with these on the Linux Pro package.
And also looking to get a VPS server for the schools requirements soon.
CS New Media again for me as well
Evo Hosting I would recommend
I have been given the task of finding web host with 50gb space, for our new moodle VLE we are going to set
Cant see any company's with that sort of space.. School will not listen to be about getting frog VLE
For some reason E2BN dont seem to want to give us an external IP address for it
Thats what I thought we would have to do tbh
Moodle will be better internal anyway
Have to keep trying to get an external IP address then, E2BN are useless, everytime we has like whats the status, the person doesnt know anything about it
Wanted to change the ISP to Virgin Media Business, much faster, school said it was too much
Were specialist in ICT at our school, we cant have a god damn slow internet, we get like 5MB if your lucky (Think we are meant to get 8MB) Upload is brilliant, think it is like 7-8MB)
School should not be cheap there really, this is very were having trouble setting up IP address, cause the ISP is crap!
CS New Media used them when I was working in a a school, and use them now for my personal sites.
Best support I've had from a host, offers great advice without trying to push his products onto you.
