Just let me know what your service is and if you do go with godaddy ... I'll stay away

I have all kinds of problems with godaddy, database drop outs, site doesn't reply, just weird issues and the minute you start to look in to it ... its magically fixed

just have a look at all the sites on 1 godaddy ip http://www.websitelooker.com/ip/97.74.177.1/1 (there are 3 pages)

Godaddy isnt all that bad. I have some hosting with them as an experiment I have root access and etc. The only thing i would say about them is they do not handle load balancing very well as sometimes are quite slow. Most people that have issue's can be listed under the category PBUAK (problem between user and keyboard) in other words user error. Still if you are going to run a site like that which i think you have in mind you should get a dedicated box. You can find them relatively cheap if you look around. Google is your friend

I was reluctant to reply when this thread was first created because I was sure the many individuals who offer hosting would jump at the opportunity to solicit your business, but since they haven't...

I can offer you webhosting that would match your needs for 1 BTC a month and I'm willing to adjust that price each month in accordance with the going exchange rate.

PM me for more details.

Still around.

You can get an Amazon AWS 'micro' instance free for a year. That's plenty enough time to get a project off the ground and either have it outgrow the instance or fail. Smiley

your best bet would be to get the best hosting you can afford. Your site is only going to be as good as its host it is slow people are going to time out and etc trying to get there which does you no good.

The "performance" is exactly as described. It's doing a small VoIP server for me just fine. You just can't hog 100% of the CPU, and most things don't.

Well godaddy is only like 5 bucks a month.. Thats cheap and im makin a site that would run like bitcoindouble.com

bitcoindouble.com is hosted at nationalnet.com Here is a review: http://www.000webhost.com/directory/reviews/national-net.com

Notice on the left is the top 10 list. I use #3 and rarely had a problem. The few times I did, it was handle very quickly by there service department. They have always been friendly and helpful.

I will always register with Godaddy and host at HostGator useless I have a project that would be better suited for a different hosting outfit.

Hope this helps with your search for hosting and good luck with your project.

When you hit any stumbling blocks (and you will), you know you can return to this forum where the kind folks here will help you out any way they can.

BTW, if any one has an objection to hosting at HostGator, please voice your opinion along with the reason(s) why. Thank you.

First off, the Bitcoin daemon does not have to run as "root". Nor should it run as "root". It should have its own user.  See
"http://www.austinheap.com/assets/coins/531b6341e653b7b57a8f7f5cc3da79d9.pdf" for install instructions for CentOS, which is what you usually get from a hosting provider today.

Second, does the original poster need a Bitcoin daemon?

Avoid GoDaddy.

If you have a modest web site and don't need a continuously running program like the Bitcoin daemon, HostGator is a good entry-level choice. They start at about $4 per month.   Dreamhost is considered good, and more developer-friendly than most other low-cost hosting services. When you get serious and need dedicated servers, talk to Rackspace, Codero, or Hurricane Electric.

I run my minor web sites on HostGator accounts; the big stuff is on dedicated servers at Codero.

You need to have root access in order to 'create' a user to run the bitcoin daemon.

Nodaddy!!!

If you don't need the cloud thingy, I traditionally go with Hostgator.. I believe they're the fastest and most reliable.

No? I did quite extensive research on traditional (non-cloud) hosting a year back and I thought it's a pretty good consensus that Hostgator, although a bit pricier than most, has the best respond time and good service.

Hi OP- might I recommend that you use Cinfu.com?

I just bought a domain from them but of course they do hosting and private servers as well. I used them because they accept Bitcoin... and the transaction was very easy. I have a few dozen domain names at GoDaddy... I've always used them, but I may just migrate them to a new host like Cinfu because they accept the good coin Smiley




I can second this. I currently have a (hidden) IRC hub running on a Cinfu VPS (their smallest plan) and it's been very reliable so far. Payment (in Bitcoins of course) was also very easy.

Another one to recommend is Ramhost, even though they do not accept Bitcoins (yet!). I have no experience with their shared hosting, but I've heard good things about it, and I've been a happy VPS customer for over 1,5 years with them now (currently have 5 VPSes with them of varying specifications).

Also joining in on the rest: no matter what you do, stay away from GoDaddy. They fall in the same category as LunarHost, BlueHost, Hostgator, and all these other hosts like them. They are known for aggressive marketing, unreliable services (reliable enough for a weblog, but not for anything serious), varying customer service, and more than once I've heard people complain about billing issues with GoDaddy hosting.

As far an Amazon instance, you will have to set up a webserver yourself... I am not sure how Amazon instances work, but assuming they work like regular VPSes (and run Debian) you can simply google 'lighttpd php mysql debian' to get a tutorial for a fairly simple webserver setup... you may want to have someone who knows how to use Linux help you with this.

Can you describe the kind of thing you want to host more specifically? It helps if people know what exactly you want to do with the hosting Tongue

Also, stay clear from any host that offers you unlimited disk space or is otherwise offering things that seem too good to be true. While hosting can be cheap (look at Ramhost and Cinfu), these 'screaming marketing' websites are usually this aggressive on marketing for a reason, and try to lock you into a 1-year (or longer) hosting plan. I believe both Ramhost and Cinfu offer monthly plans where you can cancel at any time. "If it looks too good to be true, it usually is."

For those wondering why unlimited disk space is bad... when was the last time you saw an unlimited harddrive in your local electronics store?

I've never had a problem with godaddy. The sites I've run there are just php/mysql though. At the very least it's very inexpensive and easy to set something up there.
