    Re: Best webhosting???

    I've used a service called Doteasy (www.doteasy.com) - I have had excellent service from them and great speed/uptime. I've been using them for about 5 years now... I host about 15 domains/sites with them...

    definitely worth checking out... the only catch may be that invoicing/PO thing - most of these places all accept credit cards. Their yearly hosting fee for unlimited traffic and lots of storage space is pretty cheap.

    Re: Best webhosting???

    Hi

    I offer web hosting services, and currently host two primary schools.

    You can use the discount "Edugeek" to obtain a 10% discount off prices, we obviously allow DNS Changes and MX Record Changes.

    You get the cPanel interface and you can have as many MySQL databases as you would like.

    You are Guarnteed 99.99% uptime although servers haven't crashed for 3 months straight, currently at 100% uptime, and we can invoice you.

    PM me if interested

    Just throwing it out in the edugeek world....

    Why don't (like the grammer) you all who need it, put a bit of monies together and purchase a server and then you can section it of , IP, all that jaz and host all your web sites etc on this server, you can then have any setup / configuration and control of your won bit.

    Dont all throw paper at me, just a suggestion like.

    Weird... Craig's someone I've known since he started out...

    I've recommend people take a look but good to get a more current opinion




    Oh and as to "host your own"...

    I do that and I can't stress enough, DO NOT GO THERE!...

    It's a nightmare unless you get it managed and that costs a lot of money. The only people I'd ever recommend handle a full root style VPS or any other server are people who want to learn, have already learned more than enough AND have a lot of time to kill...

    Whada ya mean? Its fun....

    *goes to check the server uptime*

    System Uptime 147 Days, 15 Hours and 0 Minutes
    basically, since I set it up this year.

    Not bad, and zero restarts

    Would have gone down the VPS side of things, but for the money vs power etc., it wasnt worth it.

    Needless to say this tho, but not anyone can run a managed server - so be very careful in trying before thinking. too.

    BTW thats in a personal sense... not for the school itself - we have county provided webspace for that

    Oooops.... g2g.... food just dont cook itself either *doh!*

    Regards
    Nath

    I actually discussed this today with one guy from/connected to the LEA.
    I said my options are;
    Payed for commercial hosting - negative is we have no control over reliability and service other than paying top dollar and still hoping we chose the right one.

    My own server on a DMZ managed by myself - this would upset a few in the LEA for "security issues" and it would be doubtful anyone taking over from me could manage it.

    A server managed by the RBC/ISP/LEA - this could be payed for out of current funds or by a few schools chipping in together


    The last 2 options are what I want but i cant see it happening in a hurry. But the reason we have our own regional/national network is to do things like this. And it isnt like im asking for something which costs a fortune or is hard to set up.

    Can i also stress;

    I NEED reliability, speed and good customer service (changing MX records etc etc)

    I dont care at all about the cost (within reason). Id rather it cost £100 more and be reliable and fast!

    We used Easyspace at my last place. Reliability is good, speed reasonable and you get full control over DNS records, you can add your own CNAMES, As and MXs at will.

    They're not especially cheap but they worked well for us.

    Have you tried Fuzioned? Excellent service, and im sure if you email the guy (colin I think his name is) they will be more than happy to invoice you. Also if the 4 main packages aren't quite right, again email Colin and he will tailor a package at a fair price

    I don't have any connection with them btw other than I host all my sites with them

    Except for the release of 3500 ftp passwords... And them being in the USA so not being compliant with the DPA.
