Looking for a new host…

Think it’s time to give me with my current host! Been with them since 2003. But in the last number of weeks, my website has been going off-line at least 15+ times, a day for around 5 minutes at a time.

All they keep telling me to upgrade to WordPress Hosting plan. Which is no use to me at all, since I need access to more than one database! One to host the main part of this website, then another host Zenphoto, also need subdomains. So why would I pay more, but get less?!?!?

At least during this lockdown, I’ve got time to sort things like this out!

So here is list of the main things I need:-

  • Free Website Statistics (AWStats) – Use them for my photos stats
  • Free SSL Certificate (Let’s Encrypt)
  • FTP access with at least of support for SFTP and SCP
  • At least 50 GB of hosting space
  • PHP at least version 7.5
  • Need at least 5 subdomains
  • Need to be Linux server
  • Unmetered traffic
  • Also want 99.9% Uptime Guarantee! (So not going off-line around every hour, like my current host)

Sure I have missed things, they are main ones!

P.S. My website went off-line at least 3 times, while just doing this blog post! That’s how bad it’s got!!

  1. Sorry to hear of continued problems with uptime on your website. Even just reading what you need, it’s gobbledegook to me, sadly unable to help or recommend a provider, know I get 10Gb of webspace with my provider, but probably not of any use to you.

  2. You may like to look at ifastnet – I do not know how they compare with your wishlist but from memory they seem to match it quite closely. I used them for couple of years – no complaints
