    Hello,

    I decided to go for facebook application stuffs but the first most important question is where shall i host the apps?
    My current webhost dont allow php functions that is required for photo tagging apps.

    Please suggest some good webhost which i may use.

    My budget is not too high.

    i used hostgator for some short time, if not so viral, it should be ok for the begginig untill you would need a dedicated server.

    If you think your apps will be viral then you need VPS/Dedi
    so IMO get atleast a VPS if you are serious about this

    if you are just tryinng to figure it out how to install and setup then first try on some cheap shared thing like hostable
    and you are all set then take a linux vps.

    Why don't you tell your current webhost to install whatever libraries you need for photo tagging to work? What's causing it not to work?

    Certified will install everything you need, look at your error logs. Find the required libraries, and tell them to install/enable them.

    Hostgator has always been a good choice. I use them for a lot of things and they handle it no problem.
