You are probably wondering why I'm up here if they were so great.. Well their plan requires that people not use any high-activity content on their site. I am making some tutorials for blender (great 3D app) and am actively looking around for a good host to serve up these tutorials because I know its going to suck down phpwebhosting's resources if I keep on with them.

I've been very satisfied with them, they offer a complete SSH/SFTP access to the account, they opensourced their site's hosting software (at least there is a "phpwebhosting" project on sourceforge), their php configuration is better than I can do on my home off-line apache/php setup (I have been experimenting with the flash content generating modules in PHP and their site is poperly configured for it).. They have full perl, they offer complete and easy to configure majordomo access (listervs are major easy), I tend not to use the email accounts but I think its unlimited.. ITs just a generally good place to put the mainsite..

I'm looking for the high-bandwidth site now..

(PHPwebshoting offers 5 GB per month, which may be adequate but I haven't been able ot obtain information on the bandwidth I'm using, its not that they don't offer it, I think I deleted the directory they setup for me that they save the stats pages in).

As for the bad ratings like the 8 I gave them for uptime, the best time to edit yoru website is late at night, SSH access during the day is rather slouchy, and ftp upload access tends to be a little slow, but last night for sometime it was uploading consistently for some time (I switched from DSL to a modem, I was getting a 4K per second upload and the SSH was better than usual, but usually during the day its a little choppy) experience over DSL was purportional to the modem ( I mean choppy during the day but quick at night))..
