---- Thought I'd start this off with some structure and stubs. Feel free to edit and add to this. ---- A web host allows you to make a website available over the Web by storing it on a computer that's always on and always connected to the Internet. There are thousands of companies who offer web hosting. This guide aims to teach you how to understand, ...

WordPress Hosting on a VPS To run WordPress you need the following: PHP version 5.2.4 or greater MySQL version 5.0 or greater Make sure you server has enough resources to comfortably run those. The main bottleneck you're going to run into is MySQL queries. If you have a lot of vistors, try to limit the number of times those visitors will trigger a ...

When we started to evaluate MongoDB hosting, I tweeted about our initial results (DB size was reported differently) and whilst MongoHQ replied on Twitter to explain the differences in reporting, the MongoLab folks reached out to me directly and asked about our business needs and seemed to genuinely care about working with us. We continued our initial tests ...

I'm not sure about specific hosts, although if I remember correctly Hostgator offers servers on different continents and mirrors on at least two, but off the top of my head those details may be off. Another option though that you might consider is a CDN(content distribution network), which mirrors your static files in different locations globally, allowing ...

No noticeable difference on the technical side of things after using both MongoHQ and Mongolab. However I really appreciate mongolab's eagerness to correspond with its customers, quick replies to emails, and the overall good feeling that results from talking with them.

You might want to check Webhostingtalk forums. Yet though, as I have just said in other answer, seems Hostgator is one of the most respected (you can check in the mentioned forum. Plus see several few other with almost same good fame.)

As much as I personally dislike Dreamhost and encourage you to leave anyway on principle, I'm not sure this is really a hosting issue. I see a few major options: Dreamhost's VPS plans really, really suck. Someone customized the VPS config and messed something up Your WordPress templates are incredibly inefficient and/or something in the WP config(eg. ...

You might want to check out SliceHost or Linode. Neither though offers plans around what you are looking at ($10/mth). But then again I wouldn't pay less than $20/mth for a decent VPS. Less than that and you probably aren't getting the best service. Both have great tools available on their control panels, good customer service, good uptime and reasonable ...

Just as example, because it's the system I'm in at the moment, when adding a new domain to a Pair hosting account you're given the following options Dedicated IP Domain Hosting -- The domain name will have its own unique IP Address Shared IP Domain Hosting -- The domain name will share an IP address with another domain on your account Parked Domain ...

Longevity is another consideration. Do some searches on the provider and see how far back your results go. If they've been around a while, they're much more likely to stay around. Switching when a fly-by-night goes down and takes all your data with them is a painful process.

Keep in mind that users are far more likely to write a review if their experience has been bad than if their experience is good. Look at the services they offer and the price. Too cheap can (and sometimes has) indicated a lack of customer support and too expensive can give you a lot of crap you don't need. Don't throw away a service because of a couple of ...

Amazon AWS have a free tier (http://aws.amazon.com/free/). Otherwise Wordpress themselves can do hosting on a custom domain.

A quick Google search show lots of hosts who claim to offer free .net hosting. You could also host it yourself and use a dynamic DNS provider like Zoneedit to handle the DNS for you.

A Small Orange offer ssh on their shared plans. The "Small" option is $5/month, and if you really want to be cheap the "Tiny" is $25/year(yes, really). If you want a VPS, your best bet is to grab the feed from Low End Box and wait for something to show up; it's updated all the time. There are several ~$5/mo options listed right now.

The follow is recommended by the Better Business Bureau (A little old but still sound advice): Is your business Web site down again? Does it seem to have more downtime than uptime? You may want to consider changing your Web hosting service. One of the most important decisions you will make for your business Web site is selecting which Web hosting ...

Generally speaking, in my experience, everyone tends to overestimate the quantity of resources that a website will consume. As ever, it's a money/capacity pay-off. Unless you're expecting 30/40GB of bandwidth usage monthly from word go, I'd recommend starting off in a standard shared hosting package. The main problem when hosting sites these days isn't ...

There is a blog post that looks like it lists a possible solution to the problem you have: http://www.tugberkugurlu.com/archive/asp-net-chart-control-on-shared-hosting-environment-chartimagehandler-parser-error-problem-solution. Starting with .Net 4.0, the chart controls are actually part of the .Net framework.

Have a look at http://www.lowendbox.com/ you can find a lot of cheap VPS hosting packages there, often with promotion codes to make the package even cheaper. You can easily find a VPS for ~ 5$ there, which should be able to run your script but is much cheaper than your current package. Make sure to buy from a host which has been in business for sometime ...

I'm not sure what you mean by "which website would be good to have things the way i want them to be", but if you're trying to ask about web hosts, I would encourage you to use a more above board web host, like DreamHost. You will get better customer service and not contribute to the skeezy practice of domain squatting/speculating. As WalterJ89 mentioned, ...

Hosting companies will usually list all of their available technologies on a page that describes their hosting plans. Go to Hostgator and click on "compare all hosting plans". You will see a list of what their hosting plans support. If you see it, you can use it. PHP and MySQL are very common and offered by most hosting companies. C#, when used in .NET, is ...

Those are rather large for PowerPoint. Also be sure in PowerPoint to double click any image and hit compress and uncheck "Apply only to this picture". The file size should drop dramatically. After compression you could use: Google Docs (1GB) Dropbox (2GB) Windows Skydrive (25GB) but with 50MB max file size
