I am president of an amateur radio group that's been lucky enough to
have our internet presence (mainly a reasonably active web server, ftp
site, and mailing list server) hosted gratis by a friend at a very high
bandwidth site. Unfortunately, the days of the freebie hosting are
coming to an end, and we need to find a reputable hosting company.
One of our board members is vocally in favor of EV1 because they're big,
reasonably priced, and reliable. I have been against them because they
are one of the only companies around to have paid SCO's extortion fee
for a "Linux license."
My problem is that I'm not very knowledgeable about hosting companies,
and need to show some more Linux-friendly alternatives than EV1. Can
anyone recommend comparable companies that they've had good experience
with? We need someone who's likely to be around for a while, has good
service, and doesn't charge an extortionate rate (we're not broke, but
still need to watch the funds).
