Looking for hosting recommendation - multiple urls and databases

Discussion in 'Site & Server Administration' started by cbc58, Aug 12, 2013.

    I am at bluehost now and like them but they are doubling my rates for renewal. Looking for a good alternative that will allow multiple urls and databases. Prefer cpanel as I know it. Shared hosting o.k. and want to keep cost down as low as possible.

    Can anyone recommend a good provider who also offers support if problems occur? Tks.

    Do you mean you need a host that offer multiple domains hosting?

    I think all the web hosting providers offer these requirements, you need just to pick up a good host with a reliable uptime and support. And in order to run multiple domains I think you need to think about a super server with LiteSpeed and CloudLinux technologies which will increase your website's speed and stability.

    What is the monthly bandwidth and space you need?

    i don't really know my usage stats... sorry. I have about 25 domains with databases - many are sample sites that I have done for people and they really get no traffic. Will eventually focus in on one or two with serious traffic possible but really need a place to move all this stuff. Can't justify bluehost costs and looking for an alternative. Was hoping someone had luck somewhere with a cost-effective host. tks

    How big are your databases? Some host offer limits on database size, other limit the number of databases...
    I would avoid the "large and unlimited" hosts. Look instead to a host like Stablehost (USA) or EuroVPS (EU). Not oversold, and the resources are specified.

    You can choose HostGator (approx same rate as BlueHost). If you like bluehost then my suggestion is to stick with it. I know its renewal rate is high. So you can buy a new bluehost account and transfer all your site to new account. In this way you can save money and stick with your old provider
