After having ordered and paid for a simple two-year web hosting plan from MidPhase.com for this website back in October of 2009 I finally have gotten around to actually moving the code and database across. For the past five years this website has been hosted with PHPWebHosting.com who have done an amazing job of keeping my collection of websites up and running.
The requirements of some of my other websites have grown and that means that they have been moved off to MidPhase.com that provide different features, such as Windows and dedicated servers and virtual servers, that I felt it was time to move the last remaining website, my personal one, over to MidPhase.com too.
If you are in the market for a LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) web hosting company, I would certainly recommend PHPWebHosting now and in the future. It would be the obvious choice. Five years. Never had a significant problem with the web hosting, the server or the company.
I’ve been hosting other websites with MidPhase for the past year and so far have been very happy with the service I’ve received. I’ve only had to contact tech support once, and the issue was resolved in under 20 minutes.
The problem, if you are curious, was to do with the fact I was trying to sign up a new hosting account with user information I had already used on a pre-existing account. This somehow confused the account setup application that would indicate that the account was ready to go, but wouldn’t let me login. Tech support were incredibly helpful, via the in-browser chat interface, and the matter was easily resolved once the tech had looked in to it.
