How to find web hosting that meets my requirements?

Now as I found out here that I should use Replication for my project, I need a Hoster that allows me to do so. Unfortunately my current hoster doesn't unless I buy a real expensive package. Currently I'm paying around 50$ a month and I wouldn't like paying much more as I don't need many exclusive features apart from replication (got maybe 5000 visitors on a good day).

  • I don't want to spend much money, as I don't have much traffic (maybe a few thousand unique visitors on a good day)
  • I actually need only a fast MySQL DB to set up for replication
  • Preferably in germany as my visitors come from germany too

I just can't find any information about that on hosters webpages, and I thought it might be faster to ask others before writing asking every hoster personally.

Anyone can help me here ? What hoster are you using for MySQL DB replication?

This question was marked as an exact duplicate of an existing question.

If you have pricing complaints, it's generally a good idea to include what sort of budget is acceptable to you. (Sometimes it turns out the asker needs to be informed they're being a cheapskate.) Replication isn't exactly a beginner feature to start with. – Su' Oct 1 '11 at 2:11
Thanks for pointing that out. Edited my question to include that. Maybe I'm a cheapskate, but apart from that really important feature I don't need anything extraordinary. Hope I can find a solution. – Anonymous Oct 1 '11 at 6:12

Amazon RDS supports the MySQL engine and offers replication. You can launch an Amazon RDS instance and use it from your existing hosting provider without moving your application.

Not sure whether that really suits me, because I don't exactly know how much traffic my DB creates and I'm hoping it also works with a local DB, but I'll give it a shot - can't find anything better anyway. So thanks for the suggestion! – Anonymous Oct 10 '11 at 22:53
