    That does look good. I will seriously consider them. How often do you get downtime with their hosting service? Do you know what version of php they use (5.3.14, etc.)? What version of imageMagick do they offer?

    To show what version of ImageMagick you have use:

    Code:
    <?php
    header('Content-Type: text/plain');
    system("convert -version");
    ?>
    djr33, it is a bit difficult to change hosting providers. I've been using GoDaddy since 2005, which is also when I started getting into web design.

    On my newer account (almost a year old) I can choose from php 5.3.6 and 5.2.17 (on my old one I can choose from php 4.4.4, 5.2.5, 5.3.6 and php 6)

    ImageMagick 6.3.7

    I havent ever seen any downtime while Ive been with them and I'm online most days. They report 99.9% uptime which I think is one of the higher figures I've seen. There have been a few times where DB connections have dropped or have been a bit slow but a quick email had it rebooted and fixed within an hour.

    Hope that helps

    Oddly enough the language versions are all a step down. The prices are better and the lack of downtime, customer service, and maintenance also look better than GoDaddy.

    I would like to change over. I'll look it over some more, but I'll probably move on over to them in a month, give or take.

    Forgot to say, you can also edit the php.ini file (well, a reduced version) but you can tweak up things like upload_max_filesize and post_max_size

    Also, in case you want to use cURL or RSS or setup payment channels for shopping carts, you'll need to ask for outbound connections to be enabled on your account - they are disabled by default on their shared hosting - but again, submit a ticket, and within an hour the connections are enabled.

    Let me know if you want me to run any tests on your behalf

    I just checked with them and they can confirm that they are planning on introducing php 5.4 soon - no set timeframe but it is on the cards.
