reliable host for a media website


New Member
I am looking for a very reliable host that has VERY little downtime and great support. The site is all media based with articles/music/tons of photos and everything in between. My guess is I will need atleast 300mb of space, but this is my first domain. I need:

300mb space+
1gb bandwidth+ (sounds reasonable right?)
5 FTP accounts min.
POP3 email accounts w/ mailing lists, auto-responders etc.
5 sub-domains min.

Would be great if it also came with:

domain (if not, anyone know any places to buy a domain for cheap? .com/.net)
shopping cart
custom error pages
daily or weekly back-ups

I am looking for prices under $6 a month if possible and a low set-up fee. Thank you!

PS- I've found this host www.enhancedhost.com, which looks really good, but is that ok if it is based in Australia (I think it is anyway) and I live in the US? thank you again!

They have many US based clients as well as worldwide ones. Check out their forums and see the location of the members. I would personally recommend them :)


New Member
Coming from you I know it should be good. DO you know if any of the offers above are reliable and/or you recommend also?


Forum Cleaner
While not a recommendation, because I haven't used them, www.byzhosting.com because of their time in the hosting business. Also take a look in the offers forum, do a whois to see how long they have used their current hosting URL :)

Sorry, I'm a bit late getting replying, but I just found FreeWebSpace.net. Looks pretty neat.

Here's what ZuulNetworks.Com can offer you. It is our Silver plan;
250 Megabytes of space (If you really need 300, I'll throw in the extra 50 free)
8 Gigabytes of Transfer
2 mySQL Databases
50 E-Mail Accounts
3 Domains Hostable
10 Sub Domains
10 FTP Accounts
1 Mailing List
cPanel 7
Price Per Month: 8.95

As for the domain issue, I will purchase one for you for free, if you pay for the first 3 months. Otherwise it will be 6.95 a year.

Since our website is not up and running at the time (we just got a new design, and switched to a brand new server), you can email me at support@zuulnetworks.com and I'll get the order form out to you ASAP.

EDIT: Just so I'm abiding by all the rules. Here is a link to the silver plan; http://actionmanracing.org/plans/silver.htm
That page is a bit "rough" with some mis-sized images and other little things.

Thank you for your time.

Most aussie hosts use US servers anyways. So unless your gonna go to their door step and start knocking I dont see why an aussie host would be a problem...

And my offer is 2.95 / month for what you need however it seems like you have your mind set to using the aussie host so good luck.

Unmetered Bandwidth? I think Unlimited or Unmetered bandwidth is now an official sign saying we are gonna cheat you... does anyone else agree?

Argh! EnhancedHost changed its plans and design! Eh, do hosting businesses do this often? Because I need a company that won't change and is reliable!
The old design was 12 months old. It needed brightening up. :)



Then there are those hosts who dont make offers via forums, but do run extremely powerful Quad Xeon 2.8 Processor machines and all highest grade parts, and the Hsphere system. We just bought three of these. What used to easily take our dual 2 ghz machines down have no effect on these. We run full raid over 3 drives in each machine, and daily/weekly/monthly tape backups.

While I am not making an offer, I'm making a point. People want a "cheap" price. Would you expect a $0.99/month host to be able to offer such a thing? I know your specs requested, but theres more to look at. How much do you want for a "cheap" price?

WE arent currently taking signups due to us moving things all from Vancouver to Houston. So I couldnt (and wouldnt) make an offer since we signup so many every day anyway. But if you want the opinion of one of the oldest hosts here, just figure that I agree completely with what Jan posted.
