Hosting Providers?

Filed under: Uncategorized — ioconnor @ 4:50 am

I’d like to put up some code examples but can’t until I have a host so I am revisiting the issue. Ideally I’d like something free.  For now I have some review-sites to review. They are:

  1. Web-hosting-top.com
  2. Hostingreview.com
  3. Top10webhosting.com
  4. Top-10-web-hosting.com
  5. Hostcritique.com

The above host review-sites looked outdated for the most part. For instance they display very outdated prices for most if not all of the host providers. Anyways they mentioned the following host providers:

  1. 1&1 Hosting
  2. BlueHost
  3. DreamHost
  4. easyCGI
  5. FastDomain
  6. FatCow
  7. GoDaddy
  8. GreenGeeks
  9. HostGator
  10. HostMonster
  11. HostPapa
  12. In Motion
  13. IPower
  14. IX WebHosting
  15. JustHost
  16. LunarPages
  17. PowWeb
  18. StartLogic
  19. SuperGreen
  20. Yahoo! Small Biz

This will be a work in progress until I’ve narrowed it down. As the week progresses I’ll look into each of them to get an idea of the various attributes that are important to me. I think I’ll end up with two hosts for redundancy.

Maybe this will not take so much time. I found a site handling free websites. You can actually search for the sites at this URL:
http://www.free-webhosts.com/power-search.php

I used the search criteria and was surprised to get a hit:
Scripting:PHP,
Features Supported:”Unlimited Bandwidth”,
Upload By:SSH, FTP

I tried another search for just “scripting:C/C++” and got no returns. It’s a sad World that does not support C/C++. I’ll try out this hit before looking at the ones I have to pay for…

I’ve tried signing up for a few of these “free” hosts. Most of them are bogus. For instance “free” if you sign up for something else that costs is bogus. Alerts saying the browser must be updated is also bogus. However at the site http://atbhost.net they mention the sites absolutely-free-hosting.com and freewebspace.net which might be better than free-webhosts.com for finding free hosting.

Actually I’m tired of trying to find a free site. If somebody could vet a real free site that would be great but I suspect it would take me too much time to justify this…
