I'm now on my third (yes, third) web host in the past two weeks. Two were just downright shitty (random downtime, dead hard drive), and the one I'm currently at, runs Plesk on FreeBSD, which apparently has some all-powerful stranglehold on perl, making the admin scared to install DBD::MySQL for me.
I don't think my requirements are too insane: enough storage space for my photos, some bandwidth, PHP, and the perl modules to run MT. And the ability to host a second domain. I'm a student, so money is a concern, but I just want a reliable host (ie: little downtime, been in business more than 2 weeks).
What do you guys use? I've read the MT forums and some reviews, but I'd like to hear what actual bloggers use.
Cool idea for a website: recommendations from other bloggers like this, trackbacked-together using TB categories.
