Hey, I'm looking for a reliable web hosting that has 99.9% (100% will be best :p) uptime guarantee, unlimited space and bandwidth. Please provide me a web host which you have experienced with and tell me the good and bad sides of it.

Thanks.

You want a reliable host that doesn't have an uptime gurantee or unlimited space and bandwidth?

This site is hosted through GoDaddy.com - I find them cheap and reliable with all the bandwidth you could ask for.

i've used godaddy for domain registration and had no real complaints.

my hosting (and now my domain registration, which they include with hosting) is through dreamhost and i've been very happy with them. i have unlimited space and bandwidth -- not sure if they're still offering that but the space and bandwidth you get is so big you're incredibly unlikely to use it all.

if you decide on dreamhost, please use my referral link

Well, I spend hours researching/tal king on live chat to hosts, had no luck finding my type. I wanted to store multimedia files which is against terms of service in all of the webhosting sites I've found (Unlimited Space/Bandwidth ). Thats kind of.... I don't know. I always though if I pay, I could do anything like host mp3 (copyrighted? I guess...). Neither of the hosts did that. What am I supposed to use the space for if I can't even upload media files. But I found a great FREE webhost that has unlimited space/bandwidth and your files don't expire (NO HTML/NO PHP, only their software, forum, panel, etc.). They also allow mp3 files to be uploaded. So now I'm looking for webhost that is:

99% (100% if you can find) UPTIME GUARANTEED
And is on really good servers and really fast speed
Budget: <$5/month

So I can just stream mp3 from my free server.
Right now, Dreamhost looks like good choice for me. (They have experience I guess...)

dreamhost doesn't have any uptime guarantee as far as i know. they have been hosting for a long time though so they do have experience.

most hosts have a terms of service so it's a good idea to read through that and make sure that what you want to do isn't against them, since that usually gets your account suspended.

Why host your files on the site, when you can host them on a site like fileDropper or filefactory?

I don't think you can stream mp3s with those services. I considered mediafire.com (They allow hotlinking) but its like $7/month. So, I'm just sticking to the free site where I could store mp3s forever.

Also, I setup Apache on my local desktop computer (computer that sits getting dust) for file hosting. That too didn't work because of the amount of ram I have (5 hundred something megabyte). Its really hard to open a media site unless you got money (Dedicated server).

Theres a free service called Dynamic DNS if you have a dynamic IP. That could help. Memory is CHEAP anymore. I've used old RAM chips as keychains, LOL.

I didn't know you wanted to stream. If the MP3's are not 100% legit in any way, I would say your idea is not recommended.

Yeah I use that service.

Ok, lets say I'll replace RAM. The only problem I would have is mess with my router to allow outside users. Which I have trouble with. It worked perfectly last year, after a new firmware to linksys, I can't get it to work. Also, Linksys support doesn't help.

my isp blocks the common ports (80, 21, and i think 8080) so anything i host from my house has to be on a different port. that's why my test site for track7.org is on port 8086.

i use dyndns and all i have to do at the router is forward port 8086 to the machine running the web server. not sure what you'd need for streaming though -- never done that.

Just be careful hosting stuff like that yourself.

A good friend of mine has a private server in Panama , it costs a bit though.

Coding is simply CST... Combining $hit Together. We make different $hit to run in unison correctly.
