Neowin's Top Hosts

Question

Mr magoo    1

I've created this sticky thread for members to post their hosts that they use for their website. Clearly, we arent really looking here for the free hosts- geocities, lycos etc - rather the ones you pay for. We want to know about your good and bad expierences, how reliable they have been, how flexable on bandwidth, and overall feature wise. Do it in this format :

host name :

Notable Features :

Pros:

Problems:

Overall:

Link:

So - i'll start of for my website Zeebit :)

host name : OLM

Notable Features : PHP /Mysql, lots of free cgi scripts, PuTTY access, Password protect directories, FTP access

Pros: Excellent tech support- like 5 min replies - and useful ones at that, gives basic stats, Always fast and i've never had the website down - good VFM in general.

Problems: Only 1 FTP account on my setup, No PHPMyAdmin for DB stuff, Have a few probs everynow and again accessing the control panel - which is fairly limited if i'm honest- i'd prefer Cpanel - but for the price- its ok.

Overall: Mainly good- but a few downsides.

I will edit this thread to keep it clean and to the point :)

Just registered for Liverack.net yesterday.

Easy to use and pretty fast.

But the server went down already. It hasn't even been a day!

So far, not happy.

Umm. Why can't I edit my post?

Well, anyways, the site is back up. Was down for about 2 hours. Not bad.

I'm completely happy again. :)

Please note, this thread is not for discussion of hosts. I've wiped the 2 posts- pls use PM. This thread is for people to post up their hosts, and give a quick evaluation. I might add that claims of "unlimited bandwidth / diskspace / xxxxxxxx" are rarely fullfilled. Hosts that offer this might be cheaper, but rarely provide an excellent service.
