My long time friend and fellow DC member pip2kk
has owned a hosting company for about 5 years (My Custom Hosting
) which I will be moving all of my sites to, as soon as I can find the will to stop being lazy about it.
Not just taking his word for it, but also reading the reviews (because I'd like to remain friends with him, for many more years to come), hosting with his company is not just cheap
, but also reliable. Customer service, however does leave something to be desired, if you are too inept to RTFM. He is not going to hold your hand and be your teacher.
So, if you know what you are doing, you shouldn't expect much in the way of problems. But if you are a clueless newbie that has no idea how to create a database from within cpanel and don't know how to use phpmyadmin, or don't know how to upload your files via FTP, you might be better off with someone else that charges more money that goes towards paying a larger support staff, paid to hold the hands of the clueless. (one of the reasons why his rates are so low is because he does everything, himself. But he also still has a day job, too.)
