Domain & Hosting

Folks, need some assitance/guidance, I've almost 50 domains, we are not a company, which is making a lot of profit, basically in loss, but trying our level best to do something good, basically struggling due to so many reasons, but still going on.

Domains + hosting with 1and1 and recently started hosting with Bluehost too, had some bad experience with bluehost, but now they seems to be good, no issues.

But 1and1 has increased their domain prices significantly and hosting is also very expensive, planning to move out of 1and1.

Question is about my options, whom should I consider, just to reiterate, we are not a big company, not making money, not even breakeven, just expenses, our sites are not been accessed by millions of people, just one or two goes to hundreds ... truthfully.

Most of our sites are on PHP/MySql combination and some on Joomla/Wordpress too.

Please advice/suggest/guide and if needs any more information or questions, feel free to ask too.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards
MK

Get a static ip, Setup your own computer to host it.
Centos (linux) using apache webserver.
You only would have to pay for the domain names, and your electricity, and setup.

thanks kerick, but we do have some clients sites too, so this is not what we are looking for, we still need to host our sites somewhere.

What is your budget and what are your requirements:
Storage, bandwidth, databases?

There are many hosts that provide higher cost plans that function as a reseller where you can establish/manage multiple domains/sites.

Without specifics on am mount of storage,and what your requirements are, the general pick any host.
Godaddy.com you can also renew/transfer your domains' registration.

Are you paying $50 per month per domain or total?

basically more but for both domain + hosting

arnoldCommented:
you need to separate the cost of the registration which could be $10/year per domain.

Without understanding what your requirements are, it is hard to know whether any other provider has what you actually need as far as hosting is concerned. database, support for CMS joomla, wordpress, etc.
