    I've been with Hostrocket since August. From what I've seen, their servers are very fast and reliable. Hardly any downtime.

    We have a link to them up and have gotten really good feedback about them. They have a good reputation.

    I've been with them too and they were good.
    I also can recommend Ventures Online, MCHost and Datahosts.net . You can't go wrong with these hosts.

    I did it! I registered

    gamesdownloadsfree.com

    which was the best I could do. I tried almost every combination to get a .com but almost everything was taken.

    I used ipowerweb.com.

    Boy, have I got my work cut out this weekend. That is a very popular part of my site so I will have to make a lot of entry pages out of the pages that may be book marked and finish the re-building of the new games site.

    I'm a former hostrocket customer. I can echo the problems with customer service, email bugs, and then there was that little problem with someone hacking their credit card database...

    If you can afford it, I highly reccomend getting your own dedicated server. Maybe you can partner with a friend or two to get the costs down.

    I'm using Rackshack.net, renting a box with a lot of memory, and 50GB diskspace. We serve more than 3 mill. pageviews per month on it on several domains, with php and lots of heavy mysql, and the server isn't even getting hot.
    (40°C, 65% RAM avail, with up to 150 simultaneous users)

    We're very satisfied with the performance. Installing and configuring of the server software (PHP, MySQL, Stats) was done in a day, even if I've never touched a linux box in my life. (Rackshack forums have lots of useful info, and Google rules when it comes to find out whatever!)

    Our cost is under $150 per month, and we think it's worth it. If you're not serving too many pages, you can easily host 200 domains on such a server without any problem.

    Rackshack has had some network problems, but this was occuring during the time they were moving the datacenter to a new location. My server was down only 1 hour during the move. Network problems lasted for a couple of days after the move, but I've not had downtime on the server at all since then. (A month or so)

    I really think they are an alternative to consider if you're serious about making a living out of your websites. A nice bonus is that you can host sites for friends or collegues for an extra $, or you can take a step up(?) and become your own hostrocket.

    One last warning: Be prepared to read a lot of instructions if you haven't configured Linux servers before. Better yet, read it before you order, and you will be ready to go online in less than 24 hours on your own dedicated server. A kid can do it.

    It's a great feeling when you know your pages are served lightning fast, without disturbance from high traffic "neighbours" on a shared server.

    Ehhh... I think that pretty much sums up what I mean about hostrocket, or any other shared hosting solution. I like it best when I decide who gets to share. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]
