[chbot] question about web hosting

I like Rimu Hosting https://rimuhosting.com  – NZ based with local and international datacentres and their support is really good.  They can provide dedicated or shared hosting.  


Their pricing on hosting differs on where the server is located, and for shared hosting it appears to vary depending on how many other people are on the server already when you sign up, so it can pay to check more than once.


I used to have a shared server on Linode, but have found Rimu to be better.

I have been using the Kiwi Webhosting Company for ages:




At the time their dollar-a-week plan was a great way to have some webspace and dabble with stuff. They also deal with domain registration.


They haven't really updated the plans for a very long time, but they might soon, and it's worth calling them to ask what they will add for free, bearing in mind we are now in the 21st century.


I have run a Python web server on it, a MySQL database with PHP, email, and ftp. It's handy for occasional experiments.


I have never had any problems with them, but I don't hammer their services 24/7. They're part of the Vocus Group now, about whom I know nothing.

Not sure how far the world has moved on since I delved into this 
technology, so maybe you-guys can help.

One of the team is investigating a non-shared web-server service 
(meaning presumably single instance of a web server dedicated to a 
single client). Virtualisation may come into the mix at some point.

Is this a commonly available service ?

I have all my web-junk served by GoDaddy and am pretty sure that my web 
site is one of a thousand others shared across a server or three.

Comments please.

Thanks, Mark
