    Some Good Hosting?

    Hey Everyone,

    I have recently acquired some funds to buy webhosting/a domain name and was wondering where I should get my hosting? I plan on going through godaddy.com for the domain, so that is all set, but what about hosting? I was thinking of using A Small Orange, but before i do get it, what do you all think? Is there anyone here who hosts from them? Thanks

    Peo, he's running Word Press on his blog, so he's going to want *NIX/FreeBSD for PHP/MySQL.

    Neczy, Conor Hastings uses A Small Orange. I would suggest just getting a small plan if you only need a blog. Probably the cheapest plan. If you need something bigger, the shared hosting at www.iPowerWebhosting.com has been excellent for myself as well as Soccer36.

    Contargulations. Let me know how it goes, eh? Eventually, when I can get my hands on some “lettuce”, I want to get some hosting, and I’ve looked at A Small Orange and they look pretty good.

    what exactly is word press and why would it prevent someone from running php off of a windows server... a better question would be why does it force someone to run on a unix server

    Peo, WordPress is blogging software based on PHP/MySQL and I've never heard anyone's server of choice for PHP/MySQL being Windows...

    Maybe not, but it sounded like he was being forced to use unix... I was wondering why he had to use unix.

    Windows will run php/mysql as well as anything else, it's just is not free like linux and some versions of unix.

    Yeah. I am on Windows and run Apache, but I'm not serving web sites. I know it will work.
