I am in search of a new Hosting company.
I currently use GoDaddy, but I've had enough with their service so i'm looking for a hosting company that can meet my criteria. Currently I have 10+ Websites that run off of a single hosting Plan, over half of which are Wordpress sites the others are ASP.NET 4.0 applications.
What I need:
- Support for SQL Server 2005 or Higher
- Support for MySQL
- Support for ASP.NET 4.0
- Support for Wordpress sites
- Ability to send Emails through GMail's SMTP Server
- Reliable (Speed, Uptime and Reputation)
- Multiple Application/Domain support under a single plan
- Ability to have domains elsewhere (Don't want to have to transfer domains in order to use the hosting)
Some of these are things I currently have and some of them are just on my list of needs. The big ones are the support for GMail's SMTP and then secondly speed. After switching to Grid Hosting on GoDaddy (only hosting that supports .NET 4.0) I noticed my Wordpress sites latency with the Google bot increased 10x.
