Hi I run a business which calls for 99% uptime, don't we all(?), with about 10 sites on. Traffic to all 10 sites is on about 10K a day, fairly heavy mysql usage as we use CMS, but not too much streaming going on.
I am very dissapointed with my current dedicated hosting plan and need some good advise on who to go to for an inexpensive plan with excellent service... I used to feel they were a good company and helpful, but recently I feel they are trying to squeeze more and more out of me. I need quality independant advice.
1. It is considered good practise to have mysql seperate from the http?
2. What specific detials would I need to fully analise the type of dedicated box specification I need for my sites to cope?
