Need a good hosting recommendation

28 replies
I have mediatemple.net and I am beyond DONE with that service. Did I say done yet? As in fed up..pissed off...completely through? Is my anger coming through? I do not recommend them to my worse enemy...okay rant over.

I am in the market for a new hosting company that can handle I am told by my admin 30 gigs of info.

I am in the dating niche for men:

Zenmack University

(don't bother trying to click on the link..more server trouble)

I have other sites that I put on hostgator just because I hated mediatemple so much to sell my dating niche product through cause you can't download jack crap off their servers without it messing things up..am I ranting again?

My site is ranked:


ranked in the high 300,000s and in US, you are ranked 60,000.
Whatever but I want something inexpensive. I don't want any flibbity flab, mumbo jumbo, dag nabbit new fangled junk like sharing multiple server b.s like mediatemple...okay ranting again...lol...sorry.

Help is much appreciated.

Not sure if hostgator can handle my traffic and storage of ton's of podcast shows and videos that I create.

I have a big following on youtube also:

YouTube - ThePlayerSupremeshow's Channel

My goal is to get them off youtube and onto my own site.

Thanks in advance.

    I would go for hostgator VPS hosting level 3, it is 39.99 $ per month, or if you don't have the money you can always choose web hosting service and if you enter the coupon hostgator112 you may be eligible for 1 month of free hosting. The price for 1 month for web hosting is 10$. And if you buy let's say like me for 1 year, enter the coupon code SPRING and you will have 20% discount on your order

    Add another vote to the Blue Host camp... They rarely (if ever) have issues, and any issues that do pop up are fixed in a matter of minutes. And, you can even call them and talk to a real person, without jumping through a ton of hoops

      A friend of mine uses Hostgator and their service is great. Seriously. You can also check BlueHost as it seems both of them get very few complains.

      Goodluck with your search.

    I've been using Hostgator since before they were even well known. I've never had a problem with them. They've been right on top of it when I needed support.

    I've had great experiences with Hostgator, Bluehost and Rackspace. Rackspace is great if you need specialized things like managed backup, help fixing mistakes and such things.

    Do all of the hosts recommended handle a disk space of 30GB+ and a minimum bandwidth of 150GB-250GB a month? If so, then hostgator business package might seem the best bet. They have a file cap of 200,000 meaning you can't have more than 200,000 files hosted on your server. Also, if cpu cycles go over 25% for 90 seconds, hostgator might terminate or ask you to upgrade your account.

    Could you guys give stats of your site in terms of hits, unique visitors, # of hosted files, used disk space and bandwidth used monthly? (with the host you use)

    Thanks

    I have used Hostgator and have had no problems. Their support is great. Bluehost is also very good. You should be happy with either one.
