Langa Letter: Web-Host Outsourcing

Fred Langa explores the pros and cons of outsourcing Web sites and spotlights reader recommendations for finding the perfect Web host.

I think I may have some help...the guys at Bravenet. These guys have been making Webmaster tools and other things for a long time, and now they also do Web hosting. Check with them, they are good with CGI stuff, they may be what you are looking for. It couldn't hurt, check them out.
-- Randy W. Lush

I've hosted Web sites and came across an excellent provider, ICDSoft. First, they charge a measly $5 a month. But the best part is, they're support is fast to resolve any issues. They give you 333 megs of space and lots of tools. Check them out.
-- George Kimmel

I have a recommendation! pair Networks. I've hosted my personal sites with them since 1998, and have had business sites with them for almost 3 years. They are rock solid, their prices are great, and their support, if needed, is terrific. I by no means am affiliated with them, and I don't get anything out of this if you do go with them...but I definitely wanted to make sure you were aware of them, for your sites, when looking!
-- Eric Holt

I've got several sites hosted at Magical Productions. I've been extremely happy with the service and knowledge. Not only do they host, but they also design, so they know and avoid the kinds of issues you're describing (they'd have to work with the same issues!)
-- George Handlin

I know of one you may want to I'm using them to host my Web sites and I'm very happy with everything about it. Their tech support is exceptional, the guys do really know what they're doing, they're very nice and great to work with. They've helped me a number of times and were always terrific. My CGIemail forms work great :-) They charge only once, too. There's no monthly fees and no yearly fees; once you're set up, there's no fees at all. I don't think anybody else is doing that for everything that they offer: One-time fee, no other fees...ever! They have a smaller package, too, with all the same features but on a smaller scale if that one is larger than you need. Check it out.

I do understand you've probably been deluged with E-mails extolling the virtues of this host, that host, and the other. However, I would like to bring CyberPixels to your attention. They are (in my experience) infinitely flexible, the security is great, and the rates are fantastic. I live in Canada, so we look for that in a Web host. They've hosted my site for over a year now, and any problems I've had were extremely minor and readily fixed.
-- Threenorns

I finally found a Web host that I think is great. It is Doteasy and I just thought it might be worth a look.
-- S. Huehnergarth

A hosting company that I have found reliable and very supportive for the past 2+ years on my domains is NetEndeavors. They have what I believe to be reasonable prices.
-- Art Heimsoth

The host I have been using for years has had an excellent uptime record and has also kept me informed whenever things happen or are about to happen with their systems. The host is California-based Osiris Communications. Aside from my host account and my gratitude, I have no business relationship with Osiris.
-- John Georgopoulos

Check out TotalChoice Hosting. Good prices and plans.
-- Steve McClellan
