    What's an alternative to Aletia?

    I've been very happy with Aletia, and has quite a few accounts with them for my clients.

    However, recently they have seemed to have very big trouble setting up new accounts, postings in their forum supports this as well. I signed up, received confirmation, but account still hasn't been setup after a week, after numerous emails and trouble tickets. It is hard to have to tell my clients that the site has to delay the launch till further notice.

    Aletia's plan is $10 a month, 200MB and 10GB traffic, with PHP/MySQL. Is there another hosting company you could suggest that offers similar so I can keep my customers happy?

    It's a shame that Aletia taking the money and not setting up the hosting. They were a good company.

    I like using http://www.f5hosting.com, I have a reseller account through them and it always has been instant. They even become better after getting brand new servers.

    VenturesOnline isn't as cheap as Aletia for what you get, but they aren't as bad. they're the best.

    <whisper>BTW, i think F5 Hosting is using dedicated servers at VenturesOnline.</whisper>

    I had accounts at both Aletia and HostRocket for a year.

    HostRocket kept getting better and better, Aletia kept getting worse and worse. So now I recommend HostRocket.

    I've been with Perfecthost for several months now, and they have been great. I saw on their site that they have some sort of special thing going on. Something like 10 Gig transfer and 300mb space for $8.95 a month.

    What he said. It's either Dr. Larry or I doing this each time, but one common host.

    Also, HostingMatters.com has a great service.
