After doing some work myself on my site and with @Russ we both kind of came to the conclusion that my hosting is under par.
It's taken somewhat for me at times, 5 minutes plus just to import theme XML sheets.
I'm using 1&1 (I know) but it's shared hosting.. The reason I am using them is I have multiple accounts and it just seemed to be a natural step to do this - there..
Now I have a high end server at home and I am tempted, but I don't know if I want to go through the hassle of doing it at home again.
Can anyone recommend a decent VPS host but I am also on a budget - for now at least -
We are only starting up on another project I have, but I know it *could* lead to very high traffic..
I would be most grateful for suggestions, I'm looking at Europe as I am in Wales and the site will be mostly UK aimed initially..
I already had an SQL drop yesterday that lasted for about 15 minutes...
Upon a search I found it's common in shared hosting...
So if you have any suggestions or good ideas - please fire away.
Also, is 1&1 VPS any good?
Many thanks in advance.
