mojoPortal.com is now running on a new server hosted by GrokThis.net. I highly recommend them. The level of customer support in getting my sites setup was outstanding.
It seems like a small operation but sometimes its better to shop at a boutique than at Walmart. They specialize in customized configuration to meet your needs and my impression is that they know what they are doing and are very responsive on support. I've been very pleased with the service.
For $14.95/month I get :
- ssh access
- my own instance of apache that I can start and stop as needed which is nice when you are updating a site running on mono.
- mono 1.1.7
- 2 databases (I got 1 each of MySQL and PostgreSQL)
- 5 domains
- unlimited hosts within a domain
- 384 MB disk space
- 15 Gigs of monthly transfer
You really should check their site for more packages and features, I'm only listing the ones I'm using.
Right now I'm only using the MySQL db, using mojoPortal, I am running both mojoportal.com and joeaudette.com from the same web folder and using the same db.
I'm going to setup some other sites and my demo site using the PostgreSQL db. At the moment the demo sites are still running on the old server.
I have to also mention another hosting company that provides Windows hosting.
SeekDotNet hosting company is also the provider of a free open source ASP.NET file manager that is used in mojoportal. Since all the page says is "Free and Open Source", I emailed them just to make sure it was ok to distribute the file manager with mojoportal. They were very gracious, they gave me permission and also offered me sponsored hosting for mojoportal. Sponsored hosting is very generous offer that I appreciated wholeheartedly but nevertheless declined, hope it didn't offend them, but I feel it is very important for mojoPortal.com to be running on mono. That is after all one of the most important features that mojoPortal has to offer. Of couse mojoPortal can run on Windows and for those who would like Windows hosting, I do recommend you checkout SeekDotNet, they do have some of the best package prices I've seen anywhere and they seem like very nice folk.
