Webhosting

Hello friends,

I have been contracted by a friend of my uncle's to create a website for him. I am pretty spiffy when it comes to HTML/flash/CSS/whatever but I have never actually used a commercial webhost before. I am looking for a decent webhost to host my client's website as well as a host for my own personal site. I know that a few swampies have their own websites/ networks of mass destruction (lastchild, anime crisis center, echonet, and the like) so recommendations please!


I am looking for a host that provides

1. Reliability. I want this host to be up at least 99% of the time.
2. A decent amount of space. Nothing major, just enough to run a forum and host pictures.My client installs, finishes, and restores flooring in the Chicago area, so a decent amount of bandwidth and storage space for pictures is a must.
3. PHP MySQL and Perl. Please

I used bluehost.com when I had a website... its pretty good, rather cheap and lots of bandwidth/webspace. Rarely ever down when I was with them.

I get a lot of good recommendations for A Small Orange, though I don't use them. My webhost is 1and1 which honestly I don't recommend because their control panel is no good.

Long story... we kept getting attacked by bots on our forums. So we basically just gave up on the site and now its offline.

EDIT - Also, Bluehost has the latest model of cPanel... its really pretty good, I'd check them out. Highly recommended.

I use Surpass Hosting for my website, which actually exceeds what I really need. It is used by websites that have thousands of members and upload features. It has cPanel X, phpMyAdmin (which implies PHP/Perl and MySQL support), and it has never been down once for all the time I've used it (which is about 4 years now I believe). It also includes a forum community which is well-visited.

The pricing is quite low considering it gives you very large amounts of disk space and bandwith. The cheapest hosting package - $60/year - gives 200 GB of space and 2,000 GB of bandwith.
