I'm not sure this is the right place to post this, but generally speaking I find the people on MR to be very helpful, even with non-mac questions. I'm working with a few people on a web business and we want to setup a host to begin the development on. I've done a lot of web development in the past, but that was always for other people, and except for my own personal web site I never had to negotiate through the sea of webhosts before. I'm looking for a host that we can use to develop a prototype site for our business. The traffic would be limited only to myself and my partners, so I don't need lots of bandwidth or storage space...although it would be nice to pick a webhost that can scale up as we move our prototype into testing and eventually into production. I'm not opposed to a shared-server setup, but I think we might need a collocated setup in order to get the flexibility we need. Here is a laundry list of features we need: 1) Unix/linux hosting 2) PHP/MySQL 3) Perl, CPAN 4) SSH 5) subversion 6) forum software (such as phpBB) 7) HTTPS 8) create multiple unix accounts (so that each developer has their own account) 9) virtual hosts + subdomain management I'm guessing that there are not many hosts which offer all of these features, which is why I think we might need our own dedicated box. That way I could install and setup any software that I need that isn't already there. Any pointers to good webhosts which fit the bill? I looked at the sticky, but most of those seem a little too restrictive for what we need. Otherwise, any idea on price range? My personal home page is hosted on a $9/mo. server, so I set that as the baseline. Hopefully not paying more than $40-50 a month, although if we need to we can do as much as a couple hundred.
