    any recommendations?...

    i'm currently using php, dreamweaver...would like to not change my url and email address...and use mac soft(maybe easier to update website?)

    what is a website that reviews the hosts?

    thanks

    Finding a webhost is pretty easy, making sure you get what you want without getting ripped off is another thing entirely.

    You'd find most, if not all hosts support php as standard, most now support php5, and not as much the legacy php4 version.

    Also, can you be more specific as to your requirements?

    Do you want a host in a specific country? US/UK/other?

    YIKES!

    The hack was a result of a security exploit in the Joomla CMS that we use for that site, not in the server or a back door!

    hey even the DoD get hacked!

    Thats why you should use Drupal. :)

    The Web host I have used for a couple of years is Site5, They are great, Very fast, Cheap, good customer service. Never had any problems. Highly reccomended.

    not sure google his name and it gives a site you can go on to see all affected sites!

    if it happens to anyone then you just have to replace all your index.php/html pages to your backups as that is what gets changed!

    sorry for highjacking OP

    A Small Orange is very highly recommended on these boards. I've been with them for a couple of years now and I haven't a single complaint; the support is top-notch!
