How to find web hosting that meets my requirements?
Can you please mention here if you know any shared hosting providers who give option to get a dedicated IP? So far I know of one - Netfirms. Please list others if you know.
The reason why I am looking for such a thing is:
i) In most shared hosting plans, you end up getting better CPU/burst RAM than a VPS provided you don't abuse.
ii) Dedicated IP is good for SEO. For example, many times, you may get up getting an IP where some p*** sites are also hosted in shared hosting.
