June 17th, 2005, 06:43 PM #1Need Hosting Suggestions Please
I am looking for a hosting company that offers reasonably priced hosting and MUST have the following features.
#1 Utmost importantance - Host and site software MUST be maintained at the most up to date and current levels at all times.
#2 - Must be SECURE
#3 - Must have up-to-date shopping cart software that is flexible to use and will be updated to keep current with software releases.
#4 - CPanel is preferable
#5 - Good live stats program - better than Webalizer
#6 - Will need at least decent size hosting package with preferably unlimited bandwidth or at least very reasonable bandwidth.
#7 - All the usual support for php (would like phpadmin pre-installed), MySQL, PERL access, Private CGI-Bin, etc.
#8 - SSL Cert Installation and Dedicated IP
#9 - Knowledgeable & Fast customer 24/7 customer service
#10 - Excellent uptime record. Constant outages will not be acceptable.
So, lets hear some suggestions! Who do you recommend?~Michelle

I'm not to tech wise so this might not be what you are looking for, but here's some of the stuff in my hosting account. I have no idea what most of it is, what it does, or how to use it, but I've been told that it's a great account and that I should never let it expire.
Password Protect Directories
Raw Access Logs
Raw Log Manager
IP Deny Manager
On the side bar is this:
General Server Information
Operating system Linux
Kernel version 2.4.24
Machine Type i686
Apache version 1.3.33 (Uni)
PERL version 5.8.1
PHP version 4.3.10
MySQL version 4.0.22- standard
cPanel X v2.5.0
There's a bunch more information that I won't copy here. I have only used the mail and file manager because I don't know what all that other stuff is.
I don't know the techy details about who the host is and all that. All I have is a email addy where I send my pmt every year (I bought this service on ebay for unbelievable low cost!). Downtime is almost nil, and support is only email, but they usually answer mail quick. I can give the email addy if you would like to contact them.
email if you would like more info

Oh, forgot, if you ask them, they will give you a free upgrade, gold membership for the price of silver.

Eeee. I would avoid shop-hosting. Fine for low-end stuff, and if you are not too worried about up-time I guess, or current levels of PHP, MySql, etc.
Not really a professional grade hosting service, but great for the secondary market.

I'm having a couple of my sites with iPowerWeb. They have most of the features you require, but I'm not convinved of '#2 - Must be SECURE'
I used to have a Forum, supplied by iPW thru the CPanel, which was hacked into. I contacted Tech support for help, and all they cared was to tell me to read thei FAQs. I'm seriously thinking about moving.
One host I'm looking at is site5.com. I like that you can run as many domains as you want from one account (Multisite Superhosting), as long as you don't bust the overall bandwidth of 150GB. Anybody got any experience with them? They are under SAS, hence I have some confidence...
