Web Hosting

As the requirements for this site have grown, and interest has picked up, the need to find somewhere else to host this site became apparent.

The cost of internet hosting services in Australia is very high, and searching offshore highlighted the fact that it is definitely better to host websites in the US than in Australia.

The dilemma was, which partner to choose. They had to meet certain basic criteria, that included: -

  • Allow multiple websites under a single account
  • Offer MY-SQL database access, and the ability to maintain my own databases
  • Ability to host websites based on PHP
  • Ability to add custom email addresses
As a result, I have moved the site to a new hosting partner (http://www.site5.com).

If anyone is considering publishing a website, include Site5 in your research. If you are going to sign up with them, please click on the link in the right-hand menu, as this will indicate to them that I referred you. That way I can end up making some money on referrals, which I am happy to share with members by way of beer
