In search of new hosting
As you may have noticed today, it hasn’t taken long for us to grow out of this hosting solution. I’m tired of the constant outages, so — we’re looking for new digs. If you think you can help us find a new home and want the specs for what we’re looking for, read on.
– seriously beefy power to support the kind of database load we put it through during peak hours and on days with news (and beyond that, the beefy search queries users throw at it)
– pre-installed Apache, MySQL, etc, including appropriate modules I need to run stuff like Derek’s Amazing Comment Spam Retaliator (hee hee hee)
– seriously powerful web-based admin tools (phpMyAdmin, control panel interface)
– ability to build and prototype the site before I change the domain over
– much better uptime
– quality stats (bandwith/access/error/referer) accessible by multiple users (ala all three of us)
– already hosting a high-traffic WordPress site without falling over all the time and is prepared to take on another one
