I need a host for two thing: website (HTML, images and the odd video) and for storing files which are linked to from elsewhere (mainly from discussion forums, will contain big images, some video). MOST of the disk space would be taken up by files which are linked to externally.

There are no copyright/adult/whatever issues with the content.

The host must have a relaxed policy to the hosted files. I often see rules such as "(a) 85% of the hosted files must be directly linked from the website", "(b) we release your 20Gb disk space in 1Gb blocks providing (a) has been met", limits on the *number* of files which can be uploaded in total or in one session, file upload limits on FTP, etc etc etc.

What I need is a host without those restrictions. Simple, easy, quick hosting. There'd be no risk that I'd abuse the hosting service.

No less than 3Gb disk space and no less than 30Gb bandwidth. FTP accounts, lots of POP3 boxes, perhaps Telnet/SSH (optional), sub-domains and a decent control panel. Also interested in possibility of pointing three domains at one website.

I already have a domain, which I'd be transferring.

Who can help?

I'll need to know about ALL restrictions which would be in place on the hosting and also to see evidence of that in your AUP/T&C.

Thanks!

Trionic,
We can match your request of 3GB space and 30GB monthly transfer for $12.95/month
Or we can bump it up to 5GB of space and 50GB of monthly transfer for $19.95/month.

The only restriction we will have is that the files are legally yours to distribute, and as you cleared that up it looks like we should be good to go as far as transfer is concerned.

Your account would come with addon/sub domains, cPanel, and unlimited FTP/E-mail accounts. We offer free daily backups and PayPal is accepted (we also run recurring credit card payments through 2CheckOut. Your choice.).

If you are interested feel free to contact me personally, as this is a custom quote. Have a great day Trionic!

Regards,

Hello Trionic,

Here are three plan specifications that are the closest matches to your requested needs. If you have any questions please feel free to contact me and I will do my best to help you.

(Specials, Paid Monthly)
3,000MB Storage | 60,000MB Bandwidth Transfer | $10.00 /month
4,000MB Storage | 80,000MB Bandwidth Transfer | $13.00 /month
5,000MB Storage | 100,000MB Bandwidth Transfer | $16.00 /month

(Same plans, but paid either Monthly, Quarterly, Semiyearly, or Yearly)
3,000MB Storage | 60,000MB Bandwidth Transfer | $13.00 /month
4,000MB Storage | 80,000MB Bandwidth Transfer | $16.00 /month
5,000MB Storage | 100,000MB Bandwidth Transfer | $19.00 /month

These do include capability to point three or more domains to one web site via Parked Domains within the cPanel hosting control panel that we utilize. There is a maximum limit of 100 parked domains for non-reseller accounts. If you needed to have an additional domain on its own unique web site, you may do so easily via Addon Domains within cPanel. Our non-reseller accounts include a limit of 100 Addon Domains.

Restrictions on files include those that are illegal, that you do not have explicit permission to distribute, or that compromise server security or stability (e.g. out-of-date or otherwise exploitable scripts). Storing tens of thousands of files within a single folder is not recommended and may violate the AUP only if it causes a problem.

Standard Features:
Premium Tier-1 bandwidth at The Planet and Savvis data centers in Texas, U.S.A.
Daily Backups (generated every night during early morning hours)
cPanel Control Panel + cPanel Pro Addon
RVSkin Enhanced cPanel (14 Different Themes, 23 Languages)
Server-Wide AntiSpam & AntiVirus Protection
Fantastico Deluxe (Automated Script Installers)
Anonymous DNS + Name Servers on different Class C networks.
Unlimited Subdomains
Unlimited FTP Accounts
Unlimited Databases (MySQL)
Unlimited E-mail Accounts with WebMail
FREE setup
FREE site transfer from your current host
99% Uptime Guarantee [live status report link below]
No long-term contracts
14-Day Money Back Guarantee

Forms of Support:
E-mail
Instant Messengers (AIM, ICQ, MSN, Yahoo)
Toll-free phone support including 24/7 access for emergencies.

Full non-reseller plan information and feature listing:

To order:
Non-Resellers https://secure.trunetworks.com/?p=wh-order2paypal
If for some reason you cannot use PayPal we also accept credit card payments using 2Checkout; just contact us to pay through this alternate method. If you prefer not to use either PayPal or 2CO, we can also accept credit card payments via our secure/encrypted online form or over the phone with a credit card (American Express, Discover, MasterCard, Visa) or prepaid mailed payments via check or money order.

Thank you all for your reponses. I'll be making a decision soon.

I do note that a lot of the offers are quite a bit more expensive than my current favourite, Cabasca (favourite because they're inexpensive and don't have any nasty catches in their AUP/T&C - unless there's stuff which they're hiding!).

The plan I was looking at was Shared3, US$5.95, 4Gb disk space 70Gb bandwidth/month.

What more would I get for the increased cost of some of the responses?

Genuinely interested... as much because I don't want to sign up to an inexpensive hosting solution which turns out to be ****ty!

Do you need to have the guarantee that your host will never change your service plan fee unless you choose to upgrade or downgrade? According to the Terms of Service, Cabasca reserves the right to increase your service plan fees.

(b) Fee Increases. Cabasca may increase its fees for services effective the first day of a Renewal Term by giving notice to Customer of the new fees at least twenty (20) days prior to the beginning of the Renewal Term, and if Customer does not give a notice of non-renewal as provided in Section 2 above, the Customer shall be deemed to have accepted the new fee for that Renewal Term and any subsequent Renewal Terms (unless the fees are increased in the same manner for a subsequent Renewal Term).
The following information was either missing or not readily apparent on Cabasca's web site.

Do you need the option to host or upload adult content? According to the Support page, Cabasca does not allow adult content.
Quote:

No at this time we do not allow adult content.
We fully allow legal adult content for which you possess the distribution rights to.

Do they offer server-wide anti-spam and anti-virus filtering? We offer complete server-wide anti-spam and anti-virus filtering which is optional, but enabled by default. In addition to this we continually do extensive research for potential security and performance enhancements, including hardware upgrades, that will benefit our clients.

Do they offer toll-free or any form of telephone support? We offer live toll-free telephone support including 24/7 access for emergencies. To add to this we also offer 24/7 support via e-mail and IM programs such as AIM, ICQ, MSN, and Yahoo.

Do they offer the latest Fantastico and cPanel add-on script installers? The cPanel add-on scripts library is currently out-of-date if a host relies solely upon the regular update channel via the cPanel developers. We go the extra step and ensure that the cPanel add-on scripts library is as up-to-date as possible with the latest installers available and not just what the cPanel developers decide they have time for.

Do they offer RV Skin-enhanced cPanel? We license the RV Skin set of cPanel styles and color themes which provide multilingual capability to your control panel offering support for 23 languages.

Will they transfer your site data free of charge? We offer a free "move in" data transfer service.

Well I signed up with Cabasca because they were the cheapest but the deal seemed to be okay - no frills cheap hosting. However, the DNS propagated much quicker than I was expecting and in a rush I deleted some directories from the website root (assumed to be default page crap) which seem to have stopped the control panel from working.

A stupid and uncharacteristic mistake on my part. I emailed Cabasca two days ago about it and have yet to receive a response.

They have a fifteen day cancellation period which I may find myself making use of.

In the meantime, I have found this:
http://www.siteground.com/web_hosting.htm

The best deal so far, and I have read several good reviews and recommendations.

Cabasca have twenty-four hours to respond to my (polite and courteous) email otherwise I'll cancel the account and sign up instead with SiteGround.

In the meantime, time's running out 'cos I've had renewal notice from my current host - £80/year for 160Mb disk and 2Gb/month bandwidth

500GB traffic, 12GB space for only $5 a month, lmao good luck with that. your hosting is going to proboly suck, IMHO, if you go with them. Typical cheapest most space hosting is automatically the best...
