Re: Reliable bbPress Hosting?
I use http://www.1and1.com and have for the past 4 years or so, since their 3-year free preview began. You will find lots of negative things online about 1&1 if you look around, but honestly, I haven’t had any major issues with them. I did have a problem at one point with the box they had me on being overloaded, and it took some work to convince them that the problem was some other site dragging the whole box down, but since they moved that site (or my account, I’m not sure which) things have been great. Convincing support to escalate a ticket is sometimes difficult, but if you know what you’re talking about, they do it. They always follow up via email as well. I have called for things and been on hold, but I don’t know of a hosting company out there where that won’t happen occasionally. Thankfully, I haven’t had to call them much in 4 years.
They have been rock solid reliable for me, and I have never had a problem with email delivery. MySQL, Perl, PHP4 and 5 all included on a shared Linux server.
I also have two root servers with them which I’m entirely happy with.
