Seeking a new host

Brett,

Do you know of a good hosting company that will allow the use of .htm and .html for SSI (Traxis).

The company we are with works with us in many ways, but they can't seem to keep their server running. Much of the SE work we do depends on passing traffic so downtime really hurts...

Thanks
Steve

I do recommend the host we are with right now Westhost. Excellent bang-for-buck. I've not found anything close to them with all the features they have for about $12 a month after setup fee. It jumps up quite a bit for the larger packages, but I'm satisfied.

We have lots of sites with them and the boxes are always up. One time in the last two years for 6-8hours they were out cold, but they were replacing systems everywhere rebuilding and expanding. I'm not sure how many sites they host but I know it probably at least a grand just from what I can see from the various ftp logins. I can't think of a single major feature they are missing. Email support isn't perfect, but I always get a timely - if not terse - reply.

I don't want to step on Brett's toes at all here - I just think it's always a good idea to have a couple options in life

I use pair. They are located in Pittsburgh and they even stayed live for 3 days last year when the power grid was down (diesel generaters). They have all the options you could ever want and they are currently rolling out an account management toolset that is gonna be great.

Support is great and they are hosting over 92000 sites right now. You can get an FTP account for $6 a month and the packages go up from that but all are reasonably priced.

No tip-toe'ing needed - I'm always looking for new hosts with good value. We have clients on a couple other hosts that I am also satisfied with (web hosting.com, verio).

What I want to find is a decent colocation or leasing option.

Brett: if you're looking for lease or colocation, you might wish to check out:

They've been in the business for ages and their pricing is pretty good.
(No, we're no resellers or referral partners of theirs.)

Thanks Ralph - they actually have some respectable prices and services for colocation.
