I've got quite a few web projects on my plate that I'd really like to turn into a reality (one of them is going to be a Mother's Day present for my mom). Anyway, I already have a host that's pretty cheap, although not very flexible. I'm looking to re-locate and get these sites up ASAP.
These are my requirements
- Multiple VirtualHosts - I'll be purchasing domain names at an alarming rate (probably end with about 10 of them). I need VirtualHost support for all of these on one box, with one cost. I think the cost should be bandwidth based, not VirtualHost quantity based.
- PHP5, MySQL 5, and Python 2.4|2.5 - I don't think there are many hosts WITHOUT the first two, the last might be lacking. I might also need support for having various python libraries added.
- Shell access - This is not a must, but it's as close of a must as a "nice to have" can get. This makes management convenient for me.
- Mail support - This is actually just a "nice to have" that I don't think I'll get. I would like to have mail for every domain a I register handled on this server with the MX record stuff set.
I've thought about going to RackSpace, but they are extremely expensive, and I don't know if I can really afford that. Anyone else have a good spot to go? I really don't want to end up shelling out for my own hosting (it'll probably mean a new box...)
