7 Jun 2005 gnutizen   » (Journeyer)

I'm looking for a place to host a web site, and want to know if anyone has any recommendations from their experience. The ideal web site would let me have ssh access, would have e-mail, ftp, Apache, MySQL, PHP/PERL, SSL-capable, OScommerce capable etc. It would also have good uptime, decent speed, and that sort of thing. A lot of stuff I've been looking at is in the $10-20 a month range which is what I'm looking for. The ability to host several domains for this price would be a plus. Any suggestions? The one I've been looking at most is Dreamhost. Another I've been looking at is Liquidweb (possibly via what I believe is a reseller of it, addaction, or maybe directly). Does anyone have any thoughts of these two, or have been happy with an alternative site? Especially if it runs Apache, PHP and MySQL and has shell (ssh) access.

In other news - Sourceforge finally fixed their damned statistics. I did some nice recoding of Gnutizen in February, but have been busy since then. Gnutizen is still alpha since it can't share. I wonder if I should allow it to be an ultrapeer before going into beta - I guess the Gnutella community would demand it. There's not much of a reason to use mine other than others anyhow, although I wonder if any Gnutella clients work on a UNIX command line anymore, I haven't looked for a while. I know gnut doesn't. It's a good thing I cleaned up the code before trying to implement sharing anyhow. Geez, it was a mess. Code Complete was a helpful read.
