Credit where it’s due

January 27th, 2003

Last year I had a bit of a rant at my hosting provider due to some service issues. I moved my main project at the time off of them but kept some other stuff with them. Since then I’ve seen them become what I consider the best value in hosting.

For $9.95US per month,PHPWebHosting.com provides me with:

  • 125Mbytes of disk space and more if I ask
  • PHP4, Perl, Python, Ruby
  • as many MySQL databases as I want with phpMyAdmin
  • SSH access, my own crontab
  • unlimited unmetered POP3 addresses
  • autoresponders
  • ezmlm mailing lists
  • dns management, subdomains, subdomain web roots

Unbeatable value. I’ve recommended it to a few friends who are also very happy with it.

  1. I was thinking of using them too, but then you had that rant about their service and I went with POEhosting.com instead. They offer a great deal too and their support is great.

  2. Yes, I found PoeHosting to be quite good, too. Its “virtual linux machine” approach wasn’t right for the Blogchat app though (we ended up colocating a machine so we could have full control). It would have suited my other projects though.

  3. I moved my site to PHP about half a year ago and have been pretty happy as well. I needed the disk space b/c of my photography habit (most providers give only 50 while I’m already past that in half a year). I’d recommend them as well although the server I’m on (borg) doesn’t seem as reliable as their other servers (http access has the odd hiccup once in a while).
