Recommend a Web Host - preferably Australian
Posted on 2006-06-27
Just wondering if anyone can recommend a very reliable and fast web host (preferably Australian or though if people have other suggestions i am happy to have a look).
A prospective host would also need to have the following:
- Windows Based ~ classic ASP is being used
- Plesk ~ primarily because i have used it before and I need to have the task scheduling that it has built in.
- Jmail Pro or ASPemail premium or any other emailing component that allows queing of emails to be sent
- Mysql ~ also I require that I would be allowed to connect remotely to my database via SQLyog or mySQL admin
- Shared host ~ with options to go to managed dedicated server later on
- Good Support
Now in my experience with the asp components, not all web hosts advertise what they have and some are willing to purchase components if they think others on the shared host might use it. So in this regards if any one has knows a company who they have made a request for a component and they have been forth coming, i can just ask them about my requirements. Also, in regards to the remote access to the mySQL database, it would be nice if they only enable this on request, as it shows that they care about security and thus hopefully would have the appropriate security infrastructure to make allowing remote connections as safe as it can be.
Thanks in advance
