Default What Hosting do you use?

The last couple of posts got me wondering what hosting everyone on here uses for their arcades.

I'm using IXWebhosting - Business Plus package at just $7.95 a month. I've been with them for 3 years now and only had minor hiccups in the early days on with some mysql errors. You get unlimited bandwidth, unlimited webspace and can host unlimited domains.

I'm only using about 100Gb bandwidth and 9.4Gb webspace and I'm running 14 domains too (only 2 game related).

Before I got my own servers I used resellerzoom.com, they weren't bad.

I use startlogic for my arcades, and I have my own webservers for other sites.

Startlogic is good but support takes a while and with over 100,000 customers you would know why, and its very resonable. i did have problems at first with php but its all sorted out now and is working great

Hey Ricky,
I will be using hostforweb. they migrate all my sites from the VPS to the dedicated for free and they also manage the site for free if something goes wrong. So I don't need to hire anyone. Thank God because my skills on dedicated are no so good. But the basics.

I pay an extra 10 bucks amonth for them to make sure the server does not go down though. But everything else that needs adjustments they do.

I'm using Godaddy, deluxe package, had a bit of a hiccup yesterday with their server having a fault resulting in no site for 3hrs. Will probably move to vps when I'm earning some cash.

Been with gate2vn.net for years. My arcade(s) consume over 4GB space and 750GB bandwidth per month. I have a fully-managed dual-core dedicated server.

I use dedicated servers. I must say though that you should be careful with web hosting providers that claim you are allow unlimited bandwidth, unlimited webspace, etc. Read the small print as there is no such thing as unlimited anything really.
