Hello, We have a penny auction website. We had it on shared hosting and the host suspended our account for too much CPU usage. I called Godaddy and they really confused me about getting a dedicated hosting plan. The people at Godaddy said with their plans we would need our own tech to maintain the server. If thats how dedicated hosting hosting works wouldnt I be better off to just buy my own server? Or did I just talk to the wrong person there? What we need is: recommend using at least a Dedicated server with minimum of 1 GB RAM for live websites. PHP 5.0 (or Higher) mySQL 5 (or Higher) GD Library IonCube Loader cURL Mod Url_rewrite enabled Ability to run at least 5 cron jobs every minute Open SSL compiled with PHP and the ability to send a lot of emails. When visitors register they are automatically sent two emails. One to confirm their registration and one that is a welcome letter. I know very little about web hosting other than you can pay way too much for it and need some advice please and how it works. Can someone suggest a good company that handles everything like a shared host does at a price that is reasonable? Thank you in advance.
