Web Hosting that I recomended

Some time I will receive email from my reader, they are asking me what hosting service am I using? I have recommended them base on their needs & budget.

Seriously I do research on some hosting service around the world. Few thing I have research is the company background and survey on people who use the service from various Webmaster forum.

For Oversea or US hosting service, I would recommend DreamHost, this company which has 10 year experience for web hosting service since Year 1997. Website Pagerank is PR8 (I guess Google very like them) and Alexa less then 4.5K

According to history
10 year ago, a group of student, developed this hosting service for their university graduation project (here we call it as FINAL YEAR PROJECT), with this opportunity, they start their business with just a simple Pentium web server, and a shared bandwidth Internet Line.===> until today.

The offer for this hosting package become more better today, I still remember last year, the offer are not as good as today. Space and bandwidth are lesser if compare with current offer.

Current Offer
Disk Space:500G automatic increase 2G weekly
Bandwidth 5TB(5,000G) automatic increase 40G weekly
Free domain name for LIFE

$10.95/mo monthly, $9.95/mo for 1 year, $8.95/mo for 2 years, $7.95/mo for 3 years, $6.95/mo for 5 years. $5.95/mo for 10 years. $49.95 set up fee if you pay monthly.

As the QUOTE above, if you choose to paid monthly, the 1st month will be USD60.90(include 49.95 setup fees), following month is USD10.95. Below are other type of payment

Yearly USD119.40
2 Year USD214.80

10 year USD714

    Depends if you want quality hosting or not.
    DreamHost gives you tons of storage but in practice you won’t be able to use it because:
    – the storage is for your site only, so you can’t store any other files (for backup for instance)
    – if your site if that big that you do need all the storage you’ll exceed your CPU usage and they’ll stop you from doing it anyway.

    I personally recommend WebFaction ( h ttp://www.webfaction.com ), which is one of the few providers who do not oversell like crazy, which means that their servers tend to be faster and more stable.

    If only they had the option of paying in Ringgit Malaysia, that would be great!

    Anyway, that amount of webspace and bandwidth is enough to run a free file hosting site! lol!

    I love the idea of being an ardent customer turn affiliate for a product but do you really have time to utilize all the feature and capacity? ;-D

    Cool. So much discount… but better if they are all in RM instead of USD. Hahaha… πŸ™‚

    Great review but few hundred USD per year for me is expensive. We can’t used up all the disk space and the bandwidth transfer. Its kind of overselling…

    getting a good host is really important, as I have learn my lesson well πŸ™

    Apart from storage and bandwidth, the host technical support and their promptness in response, is one of the very important aspect that we would need to look at !!

    Mine cost around USD68/year for a 500MB storage and a 30GB bandwidth/month.

    Apart from that, service allow by the host is also important, as some host does not even allow linking of photos from gallery, for posting in other forums or sites, as they have place an anti-linking firewall setting !!

    So ……..getting a good host, would really save us lots of trouble, so that we could concentrate building our site !
