    Web hosts

    Can anyone recommend a good webhosting company. I currently use fasthosts I have around 8/10 domains I want to transfer away from them. There packages have degraded, the options for the domains seems to have all but gone and am sick of them.

    All my servers are linux, and I use MYSQl and php. Not to bothered about location of servers as long as their quick and reliable.

    These are personal websites not school related.

    Any Suggestions would be welcome!

    How much space/bandwidth do you require?

    We use Streamline.net for the school sites, and I use site5 for home use. No complaints for either..

    I lease my own servers, you're welcome to rent a bit of space on them. Means you can have a tailored package.

    From experience Dreamhost provide a fantastic setup and are excellent service too. Their current offer is 500gb of storage (which increases by 2GB weekly), 5TB of monthly bandwidth (increases by 4gb weekly) and an insane amount of features including PHP, mysql and Email.

    all for a really low price too. I highly recommend them!

    I wouldn't touch them with a barge pole. They're alright if you are looking to store lots of files but if you're planning on hosting a website with them then I wouldn't bother. I've heard bad things about them from quite a few people.

    I use a company called VPSLand for my hosting. Packages are cheap, reliable and completely configurable however you want them.

    Just to say I took them up on this offer the other day for a site and domain and WOW I've never had such a fast setup and the Plesk control panel is really nice to work with (never used it before always had cPanel from my other hosting providers) so very impressed with them so far.
