Emergy, how much do you get paid to advertise this shit? :3

It's not shit and no one is paying me =/

It's a private offer I received because they're my hosting company and my 501C3 non profit is registered with them.

I shouldn't have used the word 'cheap'. In retrospect it does look a bit spamish.

Kinda tempted to take the offer myself, transfer all my domains over, then close my original account. Not sure if this is permitted though.

Will check it out later, still using 1and1 myself.

The major thing will be the specs on offer, although the site I externally host doesn't require a lot it has to be said.

Good server (use it for my business site) but no CRON, which makes it useless for web-based applications.

What's a good domain host to use?

I want to uncouple my hosting and domain services. Right now the best one I've been able to find is https://www.gandi.net/

I've used name.com before and generally had no problems.

You'll probably find that most these days have similar levels of service though, due solely to the amount of red-tape that ICANN creates lately.

If I'm honest, all of them (with the exception of GoDaddy who are just crap) are carbon copies of each other.

Joshua is correct, mostly. There are some that provide better service than others, or different services, but generally there is no difference for the core host services.

For domain hosting (if you have loads and want one central CP independent of hosting)

name.com is good, yes.
domainmonster.com is another good one for domain hosting.


But if you need web hosting the core ones would be:

jumpline.com
1and1.com
fasthosts.co.uk
heartinternet.co.uk


I lean towards clouds now for hosting anything as it's more 'in-the-role' for the type of work that I us, and I find the fact that you have near unlimited control over that server and the domain, hosting, services, etc to work in my favour.

Just started the transfer process to Gandi. Going to take a bit of time as I'm unwilling to pay all the domain renewals all at once.

One thing I like about this host is the free whois protection.

None that are particularly good :P

I'm a dabbler mostly. I'm doing a Bootstrap website right now, which might be my first non-shit piece of coding!

It's based around CSS3/HTML5 and javascript.

I'm not doing anything overly complicated with it, just a couple submit forms and some other transitions which need javascript. Might build out some web applications for calculating job costs on new projects in the future. I'm not really a coder though. I think the most coding I've ever done was the scripting language contained within mIRC. Other than that, I'm a bit better with markup languages since they're visual rather than logical.

I run a few different websites.

I have of course mantle.ecitizentools.com/signature which will be moving soon to my new domain:

http://darkmantle.co.uk/

Nothing much on there yet but the idea is it will be a central eRepublik service combining all my other tools (rosters, bots, tools) into one location.

Dont pay for web hosting, there are many free ones. If you pay than dont get those cheap ones, take VPS.
