i am currently shopping around for some new server space .. i have been looking at infinology and they seem okay. . anyone have any suggestions for web hosting that can compete with that? i need at least a gig of web space, tonnes of bandwidth (10 gigs at least) and php, cgi, perl, mysql etc etc.
I have been using dreamhost for close to a year now. I have been pretty happy with them. Their plans are very well priced for what you get.
The unfortunate part is yesterday they were DDoS’d and they were down for a while, which in turn took all their customers sites down too.
LOL! I love it: “tonnes of bandwidth (10 gigs at least)”! Hahaha. No offense intended though.
For my server, I need to find a host that can do *at least* 30GB!
Sorry – it’s just you’re so cute! ;P
gfox.. thanks .. those guys look a wee bit too expensive for what you get though..
james.. i am doing 5-6 gigs per month not including any of my mix downloads.. so my numbers were off there. i’ll probably need closer to 30-40 gigs / month. dude!
This probably isn’t what you are looking for, but if you think you might need a dedicated server with full access, 80gb HD and 1000 gb/month bandwidth, this place has the best deals: www . servermatrix . com (your comments wouldn’t let me post a proper .com URL)
You can run up to 5 IP addresses off there (and theoretically dozens of websites). So if you need one good place to host a bunch of websites, or 1 very busy website, this is the best place I have found for something like that.
For smaller hosting deals with non-dedicated servers, I find it is hit-and-miss with a lot of places. I haven’t found 1 really good place with the best deals for something like that, but if I find or hear about a place, I’ll let you know.
my new host is canaca (http://www.canaca.com/virtual.html), it’s comparable to the one you’re looking at, maybe a little cheaper, if you go for the three years it’s ridiculously cheap. and they are a toronto based company, i like the canadian aspect.
and just think, i already went through all the bugs with the transfer, so i can pass on anything that may help you avoid being down for a couple days as i was.
i found them through this directory:
hope this helps
I have something fun for you to see davin… you will likey likey…
I was looking at servermatrix too – and some of their competitors for my replacement. Even paying $80us per month would be significant savings over what I’m paying now!
Talk to Judd. I’ve mentioned him before, probably in context with ArchLinux. www. zeroflux.org/~jvinet/blog.php is the joint. Arch is sucking back 700 gigs a month and rising fast, so a little help with hosting costs is alright by him. He’s hosting a few blogs already, mine included. Worth a conversation, anyway.

InterDesign Media (originally from Victoria but business offices now in Toronto and servers co-loed next to MAE-West in Silicon Valley) have very reasonable prices (listed in Canadian, even).
They have a great starter account for $10 CAD a month called Pyrite:
Comes with 512MB bandwidth out of the gate and more can be added easily.
