    Scott just checked that list and he said it should be fine for vB. Nonetheless I stand by my assessment of Yahoo as a host. They are really not on par with true web hosting companies.

    I heard heard a lot of bad things about yahoo as a hosting provider, but I never knew they disabled PHP functions.
    I don't think this is acceptable to advertise PHP when they are disabling functions needed by popular scripts like vBulletin.

    Thanks for posting about this Steve, good information to remember.

    One of the Devs will need to check that. All I know is that whenever I try to work on a Yahoo hosted forums, there are multiple problems and their phpinfo page purposely hides all the relevant details needed to investigate and fix this problem. As far as I'm concerned, they are not a professional hosting service and should not be considered as such.

    Yahoo "Standard" and PHP

    I want to ping Yahoo hard on why they advertise PHP/MySQL support, but infact, they only support some features of PHP. Here is a pointer to their PHP support matrix.

    Can you please specifically tell me what features Yahoo is lacking that vBulletin requires. I want to request they change the PHP support. Yahoo really should get on board!

    Hivemailhost is pretty good. I've been hosting with them for awhile now. Support is always quick and they give you a support number when you file a trouble ticket. There are some things I guess that they would like their customers to use their support forums and helpdesk for rather than tying up their phone lines with simple questions that people could fix from the forums or help desk. Communehost isn't too bad but they are an offshoot of Viperhost and if you look through their forums they've had aquite a bit of downtime during their existance and their equipment advertising is a little misleading.

    I'm going to switch to Real Web Host. That is the name of the hosting service. Unless anyone can come up with something better with a lower price .

    There really is no "best host". There is only the one that works best for you, and that can be tough to find.
    • Are they a legit? Licensed?
    • Are they in school? Just a part time thing?
    • Do they provide a phone contact? Or a toll free number if you *must* get ahold of them?
    If I was in a position to be looking for hosting, those are a few of the *minimum" things I would look at. Anybody can get a reseller account and claim to be a Web Host. At the same time, there are some verl large hosts that provide poor service.

    I suggest contacting the sales, support contacts with a few questions, see how they react and respond. See how long it takes them to respond.

    Will they refund your money if they are "not the right host" for you?

    Regards,
    Glenn

    ok, i'll do a host, because yeah, i want a serious business, i'm not saying CommuneHost is bad, but i want a serious business. I still might switch to CommuneHost if there isn't anything better that it.

    CommuneHost has good support for a good price. Support as in lots of space and file formats supported.

    What do you mean by a "serious business" ? A business that has an enterprise building, etc?

    If you are able to spend $20 to $40 per month I would go with a serious business, a host that's in business for a few years and caters to the high end market.
    Maybe you should do a search on www.webhostingtalk.com and look for recommendations from real users, but be aware, there are also many kid hosts there offering tons costing nothing...
