Advise: Looking for PHP/MySQL host provider
Posted on 2001-06-08
For un upcoming project I will be needing a shared web host provider that supports PHP4 and MySQL.
I have been looking around but have a hard time to make a decision.
These would be some requirements:
- no minimum contract
- 5+ GB bandwidth/month
- 100+ MB disk space
- Linux/Win2000 server
- max US$20/month
- very responsive and knowledgeable 24/7 email support
- extensive web control panel (I prefer self control :-)
Maybe you can tell me who is the best in this hosting category?
In regard to this I see that when installing PHP on a local machine there are a lot of optional modules/extensions. When browsing through the online host directories I never saw any info on what extensions a particular host has installed. So I would prefer a host which installed most of the extension out there, or am I missing something here?
Well from these questions you probably already concluded that I am a PHP newbie, so please bear with me ;-)
Thanks for your suggestions and any related tips.
BTW: The points will go to the person who refers me to a provider that comes closest to my wishes.
