Anyone can recommend a hosting company - i used to be with bluehost but every time i renew they jack up their prices.
1&1 is who I've used for 15 years and never once had an issue.
There are lots of badmouthing and probably many people will not like what I recommend but: 1and1 Strange but I never had the issues what you can read on forums. Contacted the support via call 3 times in the previous 5 years. (and I got a 50% discount this year for my domain renewals :)
How much traffic is the site expecting, and what requirements do you have? As in languages, db's, etc?
If it's a personal site, or relatively low traffic site, Google App Engine is the way to go. It's absolutely free up to a certain, very generous traffic quota.
The downside is that you will have to learn the App Engine way of doing things. It's not inherently difficult, but it is probably new to most people.
If you've ever used digital ocean, or any other similar host, you would pick it up pretty quick.
still using (mt)
pros: customer service. speed. control panel.
I just dropped MT based on grid price hike. Was a nice $20/mo for years then it jumped + usd to cad exchange to boot. Made it a beyond mostly fun and basic needs kinda deal.
I bought 2 years of GoDaddy pro on a black friday deal, worked out to $7cad/mo for almost exactly same product.
Actually GoDaddy pro is on sale again right now, $7cad for mid level linux package
Donald Trump can't even afford Media Temple's hosting!
Looking for a new host since my current one seems to have forgotten about me (support ticket has been open for 12 days). I looked through the current thread and webfaction seems to be the one to go with, any other recommendations?
I've been on MT for about 16 years now, no real problems.
The support has been great.
I have been paying $30 year with Bluehost for 6+ years with little to no problems...and unlimited everything!
