Need a good reliable VPS and dedicated hosting provider. And who is the hosting provider of MakeUseOf?
I think go daddy is the host of makeuseof.com.
this site seems really good for what recommendations regarding web hosting:
web host :
while choosing web host, keep this in mind that the web hosts are comatible to your site:
Jay, you link you provided is a poor quality site with fake user reviews, set up purely for affiliate links. If you aren't sure of the site and just grabbed it from Google, please don't post it.
Also, GoDaddy does not host MakeUseOf. Godaddy are perhaps the worst host around for high profile/high traffic sites. Our domain is purchased through them, that's all.
Kat, MakeUseOf is actually hosted on 2 dedicated servers from Rackspace. (rackspace.com). They are expensive, but their support team is first class and very fast, and reliable.
Personally, I have a VPS at MediaTemple (http://www.mediatemple.net) and can wholeheartedly recommend them. They are also very fast, and partnered with Cloudflare, a free CDN/firewall tyhpe service that speed your site even more and can activated in one click on MediaTemple sites. The support isn't fantastic - it takes them a while to get back to you - but at the prices they offer and speed of servers, they're a fantastic choice.
I was not sure, I thought godaddy was the host of makesuseof.com in 2008. I did not have the latest update.
Sorry, i will be careful next time.
I second James,
MediaTemple and Rackspace are probably the best hosts for dedicated servers. MUO is hosted on Rackspace, it's a bit pricier but as James points out has an excellent tech support. Highly recommend them.
