Ok, so I´ve been searching around for days and hours to see if I can find a GREAT host that´s still cheap and offers cheap domain names.. The ones I´m thinking about right now are
GoDaddy (for domainname) HostGator (for hosting) Site5 (for hosting)
Or do you fellow developers, designers and “geeks” outhere know any other host that´s better than these and preferably cheaper?
I have used a couple of host in germany and holland but they had a lot of limits so i swicht to mediatemple and i must say it works great.
When it’s too cheap, trust me it means it’s either unreliable or not modifiable that you may need to when you have a website that you need to edit the php.ini or apache settings to run it smoothly.
Advertising mediatemple again; get an account there for $20 and sit back, enjoy
I get bad ratings from some of my themes just because a buyer is on hostgator or godaddy which doesn’t run thumbnailing or don’t allow any modifications that new technologies require and blame me for developing a good theme which requires those modifications (though I state on the help files and description).
And it pisses me off. I wouldn’t want you to face that =)
http://www.wiredtree.com/ Best VPS / Dedi managed hosting experience ever. Was with them for over a year before I moved to unmanaged hosting. Support response time is nothing less than amazing.
This is probably if your hosting more than one high-traffic site, or hosting sites for clients.
MediaTemple has been nothing but perfect for me.
