Nicholas, All my sites are hosted with SuperWebHost.com. (If you sign up for them after reading this, please say you heard about them from "Christine at protonic.com") It's based in Canada, and for $19.95/month, they claim you get: * Unlimited bandwidth * Unlimited file storage * Unlimted email addresses Their servers run in FreeBSD, and include Apache, PHP, MySQL, and a lot more. Our site runs in PHP with a MySQL database, and we have full customization of items such as cron. You can telnet or SSH directly into the server for whatever reason. Reliability? Our site maintains an outstanding uptime. I have no complaints. The system admin there is "F*-ing incredible. :) We've had offers from other people to host our site (which is a non-profit service) for free with other people, but we won't leave SWH. I know this sounds like a shameless plug, but it really isn't. I honestly think they are an absolutely great service.
