When it comes to my paying clients however I need a consistently reliable service with above average support. I found and have been with a host who has provided me the service I require for the last eleven years. But the wheels are now wobbling. And I am concerned that a rationalisation in the market is putting the squeeze on the top dollar service providers and their service levels are slipping.
I am looking for a hosting company which offers an above average support and which has a proven track record. I want an established company that has already made all the mistakes that are to be made and one that has survived.
Who are the market leaders as far as support goes?
My current host is located in LA. I have a reseller account with 10 gig of disc space on a Linux platform.
This seems to happen to hosts when they overcrowd a server to the brim to the point where you start to see web site performance drop.
do you have a budget in mind?, because a premium service comes at a price.
