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 ...

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

EZPZHosting PHP: 5.2.15 MySQL: 5.0.92-community Call 0800 862 0331 and ask to speak to Dan (Say Hedley recommended you). Quality service, superb support (they also offer white label support via your WHMCS customer portal so you can offer 24/7 support to your customers) and excellent prices. I have been happy as a pig in muck since moving to these ...

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 ...

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

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, ...

I would say that you should go for a VPS, it'll give you more control over things. I'm using Linode.com, they give 512 mb ram vps for just $20/month and that server will be able to handle the traffic easily. Now, the issue is that you'd have to setup everything on your own - php, mysql, apache/nginx or whatever you want. Personally, I would suggest that if ...

I have a WordPress-based client I moved to WebFaction from the MediaTemple grid, for basically the same reasons. The site was hitting limits constantly, with overages incurred and no real upgrade path other than switching to their VPS plans. The site was transferred September 2010. Since then, normal traffic tends to range around 600-700thousand pageviews ...

Yes, there are hosting companies that offer that sort of technology. This question covers the things to look for when choosing hosting, so I'm not going to recommend a specific one. You may find that you they place limitations on what you can do or what modules you can install so it may be that you need a VPS. So you need to do your homework and ask the ...

Hostgator's policy on IPs is: Due to the global shortage of IPv4 addresses, although there is no limit on the number you may have, we are now required to request justification for dedicated IP address requests. With the exception of the Business hosting package, the only acceptable justification for a dedicated IP address on any account type ...

I have never used Windows Azure Platform and, to be honest, I'm not using Windows platforms at all, but I use several Amazon Web Services and I know that EC2 supports Windows environments and SQL Server. Amazon EC2 is a very popular service, one of the (if not the) most used cloud environments. Huge companies relies on Amazon EC2. You'll find tons of ...

I don't agree with my friends Angio. The location of the server does have a meaning, I'm not not saying it's the only factor, but it makes no sense to have a server in the States, for example, when most of your customers are in Europe - cause even if the bandwidth is good and the server is fast (CPU) it will still be inferior - comparing to a server with ...

I am in the same boat as you, been with Dreamhost for 10 and while their support has been awesome their network problems are reaching unacceptable levels (reached not reaching, really). There are thousands of hosts out there. There are several webhosting review sites and forum (just google), but I suspect that some of them are a bit rigged for who provides ...

Are you just trying to share a banner image? and have it hosted/served from somewhere? You can use windows skydrive, google drive, or dropbox. You can also put it up on a cheap godaddy instance or amazon aws and setup cname in dns settings so you can have an easy url to point to the image file.

One of the best ways is to do a reverse DNS of the hosting company, once you have found that information, you have to find other sites that share the same IP. You can check that, for instance on reverse IP domain check. If the server has more than one IP assigned, then you should check all of them. Browser a few sites from those IPs, that way you can get a ...
