If you require a dedicated server and lack the confidence or the skills to manage it yourself then managed hosting services may be a better route. With managed hosting services you concentrate on the content for your website and the hosting company takes care of all the day-to-day maintenance of the hosting environment.
If you cannot find what you are looking for above, then the following may help:
- www.webhostingtalk.com - Forum on various web hosts. Remember that people are more likely to comment on bad experiences than good ones. So, as a rule of thumb, the better the host the fewer the postings.
- www.webhostingstuff.com - Web Hosting Stuff, a hosting directory site that lists and reviews over 5,800 web hosting plans.
- www.hostsearch.com - As well as providing a search on hosting for requirements you supply. They also provide reviews (which again are searchable), these reviews are well worth looking at because they include comments by people who actually use the hosting service.
