    Hi. I'm looking for a good webhosting. I tried hostwinds but I don't like it at all. After 20 hours they didn't update their nameservers and they did it only after I asked them. Finally after getting my domain to work, I uploaded my script and access was denied for db connections. After few tries my DB got blocked because of connections errors. This is outrageous. I should give up on them since I made the order - right after ordering I got an error and was flagged as fraud. I'm looking for something $5 a month. I heard that stablehost is good, but so I heard about hostwinds.

    I've recently set up a few different hosting accounts to do some testing and the one I preferred the most thus far is asmallorange.

    Crazy name but the support is very good and the pricing not bad.

    I set up new accounts with 3 others in the past month and of the 4 this one is the best thus far. I'll probably set up some more accounts with different hosts over the next month or so as well as part of my testing brigade but this is where I am at now.

    I contacted them. After 3 hours I got reply that it should work, but it doesn't. I have wasted enough time with them. Good that I used 99% off coupon.

    I'd go with Paper-Boy as he has been using that company for a while... my deal is just a testing thing and still very wet behind the ears.

    Try StableHost and use the coupon code SEPTEMBERFEVER

    It will give you 40% discount on your purchase. Hopefully it still works since its already October.

    Thank you for that recommendation, I'm glad our hosting is working out great for you.

    @kox33 You should checkout our SSD Shared Hosting range of series (We've a thread on BlackHatWorld), customers who bought the servers are loving our services. Also, we understand that every customer has got a different set of requirements, we modify their servers based on their needs. Here is a quick link if you're interested in:

    http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackh...d-host-bhw-ultra-fast-exclusive-discount.html

    Also, the plan comes with 45 days of money back guarantee, that gives a lot of time to test us out.

    If you have any custom requirement then you can either contact our support, send me a PM or add me on Skype prior to your purchase and I can personally help you to get started with us.

    I recommend iFastNet because they provide a free domain name even with cheapest plan, they have PHP 5.2, 5.3 and 5.4 which you can choose in cPanel for your needs. Servers are very secure especially using the site lock which makes it impossible for hackers to exploit your scripts by fully locking all files uploaded so they can not be changed.

    All premium hosting accounts are hosted on 100% SSD powered servers providing ultra fast server disk I/O to hosted websites and MySQL queries.
