    Need 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?

    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.

    cPanel X
    Parked Domains
    Addon Domains
    FTP Manager
    File Manager
    Disk usage
    Password Protect Directories
    Error pages
    MySQL Databases
    PostgreSQL Databases
    Frontpage Extensions
    Web/FTP Stats
    Raw Access Logs
    Raw Log Manager
    Error log
    Subdomain Stats
    Bulletin Board
    CGI Center
    Scripts Library
    Shopping Cart
    Cron jobs
    Network Tools
    MIME Types
    Apache Handlers
    Manage OpenPGP
    Index Manager
    IP Deny Manager
    SSL 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 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...
