People can say what they want about different hosting companies, and in all honesty most of them are the same in the complaints people give.В  You pay $15 a month, and complain when your site gets shut down for using too much processor… well, let’s face it, it’s time for an upgrade.В  I’ve never really been coming close to my limits with any packages that I’ve been using, but getting up there close to 20 websites it was about time that I started to upgrade things.В  I decided to skip over the virtual server environment since if I ever did come to my limits with that it’d be not long before I needed to set up a whole new server and reconfigure everything again… not something I wanted to bother with.В  So I made sure things were good and got a dual core 2.2ghz AMD system with 2 gigs of RAM, guaranteed 100mbit connection, and a 250gb hard drive… also 8 IP addresses so I can segment up the sites that I put onto it and not worry about link spamming the search engines ;-)

I got the server from 1and1 because quite honestly I’ve never had troubles with them.В  Yeah, I’ve heard a lot from some people about their service, all of them were using shared hosting, and way over-stretching what they were doing.В  I’ve used several other hosting services and honestly 1and1 is the best I could find.В  Something that I could see as an annoyance for many beginners would be that they tend to leave you out on your own.В  Part of the reason they can afford to be so cheap on their prices is because they don’t have a huge staff of technical people on hand… and quite honestly that’s never been a problem for me.В  I kind of like being left alone with my websites so I can do what I want.В  They charge the stupid fee for people who want things done for them on extra things like blogs and shopping carts, but honestly if you have a little time you can set up all those things for yourself and not worry about it.

    I ended up using DreamHost.com (http://www.dreamhost.com) for my domain name hosting as they offered a huge hosting package at a great price. I signed up for a two year hosing service with a promotional code.

    “GREEDY” was the code I used and it gave me 3 extra FREE lifetime Domain Registrations :) There are loads of codes out there here are a few more I have found:

    “FATBOY” – 50% extra Disk Space + 10% extra Monthly Bandwidth.
    “WIDELOAD” – 10% extra Disk Space + 50% extra Monthly Bandwidth.
    “SMOOTHY” – 10% extra Disk Space + 10% extra Monthly Bandwidth + $50.00 off 2YR.
    “SPECTECH” – 1 extra FREE lifetime Domain Registration + 1 lifetime unique IP Address.

    All I needed were the free domains but the others are all pretty good.
