I'm not exactly looking to switch. But if things turn south, I'd like to have a new reliable list at hand. Ideal locations would be: Canada Israel Sweden Although I'm open to alternatives, but America (or UK) isn't exactly preferred. Ideal control panel would be Direct Admin Although open to alternatives, provided they offer current software (php, mysql, ect) Keep points: Big on freedom of speech OK with adult content Allows for challenge of DMCA Notice (or defers such to our discretion) Allows for backups Allows for semi - long running scripts (for example, rebuilding search or rebuilding cache. Not something done regularly & is only done manually when I'm working on the site, but when done usually around 12 AM - 4AM) Important points: Fast Stable Secure Well supported & managed (though we never need it when things are working as expected, its nice to know its there) will allow for more than 1 domain name (4 total) will allow symlink across those domain names (we use it for static content for cookie less domain) Current software (php 5.4 with plans to move to php 5.5 when released) Main site is web forum community with an active 100 members online. Traffic varies between 20 - 1000 guest (average would be 150). Ideal budget: Affordable (not to mimic a household utility bill) Optional: 1 Dedicated IP (but preferred).
