Hey all.. Not sure if I posted this question in the past or not but
anyway. I am looking for suggestions for a good (cheap?) Linux hosting
provider and or other suggestions.
I am currently with BlueHost which has been great but I am starting to
hit some limits on their terms-service. More specifically I host a
mailman mailing list for one my college alumni groups and they now put a
hard cap of 100 subscribers for their lists. ;( In addition I often
times hit their 700 messages per-hour limit. The list has only 240 some
members on it but if a discussion get's hopping then I will hit this.
Aside from the mailing list all I use the account for is email. All
this for $99.00 a year.
So my questions:
I am looking for suggestions for a good (cheap?) Linux hosting
provider. No bells or whistles and does not have to be a big name
place. Somewhere close to the price Im paying now. Again to host
mailman and any possibly some email.
I can use Deja Mail or whatever on Bluehost which does not have these
limits. Anyone ever used this for a discussion based mailing list? (I
It may be time to think about bringing this in-house. I know there have
been threads on here talking about ISP's in Omaha ..etc Am I correct in
my understanding that the only way to get a static-ip with Cox is to
bump up to Business Tier ($79.00 ish) per month? Is there no way to get
a static with residential? Any Qwest DSL and/or Internet Nebraska users
here care to relate how well your service works in Omaha and what
options you have for statics?
