  • Hi guys. My wife has a website, it has been hosted in Lycos for about 12 years, but she has had some problems recently to the point of not wanting anything to do with them. Could you recommend something please?

    Thanks in advance.

  • Hey MH good to see you.

    I'm going to move this to the multi media forum and leave a shadow so it will get coverage in both forums.

    Surely there must be someone that can help.

    I know, don't call you surely!

  • Depending on the traffic of your website there's a million and one hosting providers that are all around the same price and quality.

    I still use GoDaddy after all these years for small clients with little traffic. They might have overloaded shared servers but good pricing and excellent customer support. If you get a lot of traffic we have used Amazon Web Services. It's not cheap but incredibly flexible (spin up instances very quickly). For dedicated Wordpress hosting I've used wpengine which was fast and had excellent customer support. I had to try them when I found a coupon for 6 months free and it was well worth it. Never pay full price for Godaddy, just search "GoDaddy promo code" and you'll find them. Found a recent one for .99 cent domains (bought like 10 haha). I've never used their dedicated hosting though.

    I know plenty of people who use HostGator and have great reviews. Bluehost I used years ago for one site and didn't have any negatives to say.

  • Need a bit more information. What sort of hosting platform are you seeking? Simple HTML or other static content? PHP5? PHP5+MySQL? Java? Something else?

  • Try JustHost.com. it's owned by BlueHost (quite decent)...but at very affordable pricing. I left GoDaddy as fast as I joined them.

    My guess if they came from Lycos after 12 years that it's a basic html site.

  • Hi guys, thanks a lot. Yeah its (very!) basic HTML. We're considering bluehost, and thanks to your recommendations, she may go that way. Going to check justhost.com too. Any comments on lycos?

    Hi there Mr Radish! Sorry for putting this in the wrong forum, and thanks for leave it there for a while.
