Looking for a new hosting service?

    Hello Forum,

    I am quite :confused:
    I have been with several webhosting companies over the last year. But I have never found the webhost that has been able to give me th service that I really require.

    In the last month I have been looking for a new hosting company to start from scratch and install a Joomla Site an a Wordpress Blog.

    Does anyone kno what company I should use? I do not intend to use much in the way of resources as it will only be new so I won't be needin unlimited bandiwdth or space as I belive this is not possible???

    Anywys, I have come across 2 services that quite good here on digitalpoint:

    http://atechosting.com/ (http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=1453277)

    &

    http://www.tmzhosting.com/ (http://forums.digitalpoint.com/showthread.php?t=877994)

    I do not intend my sites to be used for Illega purposes or as the such. So not sure about TMZ but their service seems quite good. Does anyone have experience with the two?

    I need say less than 10GB Space and 10GB Bandwidth. 5-10 Add-on Domains and 5-10 MySQL Databases.

    Any suggestions?

    Thanks Jarred

    You're right in understanding your needs. Many web hosting provides unlimited bandwdith and disk space, and no such thing even exist in reality. Its a marketing gimmick. Check for yourself a hosting plan that suits your need and is cheap in cost.

    Yes, The site will be legal. It will only be a new small site that will run information about the latest in technology. It will not be used for anything but... :)

    I said I do not need unlimited.

    Thank you, I do not need anything dramatic. Just smll and easy. I was looking at aTechosting's small package their VI05 but not sure if anyone has used them or knows anymore on them?

    Thanks
    Jarred Mines.

    @Jarred : Unlimited hosting provider are very limited in terms of service and support ;) so better to go with reliable webhost who operates 24x7 to offer you uninterrupted hosting services.

    Well, I would like to know your hosting budget !!!

    I don't have any info about them, but as a promoter and past user for HostLuck.com. If 5 Gb space and 500Gb bandwdith is enough for you, I would recommend hostluck.com special offer. Google it or check my sig.
    Regards,
    Richie.

    This is a bit unrelated but I'm also looking for a good web host. Since 'unlimited' is only a marketing gimmick, what can I expect from these unlimited hosters? What range of disk space and traffic are they able to realistically provide?

    Thanks Richie ad everyone. I am still looking, I am still tossing up between aTechosting and TMZHosting.
    If Hostgator i mentioned so much I might aswell invest somewhere, But again I do not need unlimited services.

    @Easywebhost, I cannot read your site, sorry.
    @Harry, always new their was a catch, always something to be caught on :(

    Ok, I am going to look at their sites in google and read some things about them if any and will post back.

    I do recommend ProTGP (http://protgp.com). They offer cheap, managed (?) virtual private servers with adult content allowed if you're in need of that. Non-oversold too, it seems.

    Well, ya they have got the best customer service as well as uptime !

    And in their unlimited plan they give enough space which another one can't give. :rolleyes:
