    I think i have it boiled down to 2 companies EVO hosting or simple servers.

    I want something Magento specific, i already have a dedicated server but have 4 reasonable magento sites on that already so want a hosted solution till the new site can afford its own dedicated.

    Can anyone recommend either of the above companies or any others?

    Thank you

    Jon

    I researched for ages, found 1 company used them but found them to be very slow even though they had claimed to be magento hosting experts!

    I eventually found these guys Nimbus Hosting who have packages dedicated to Magento, seem very good price as well compared to what others I found (please note link is an affiliate link)

    Hi Max, is that who you use?

    I contacted EVO but they said it would be better to run Magento from a VPS which i thought was very honest. They do say they are better than most the shared hosting suppliers as more ram etc.

    Magento is a tricky animal! Can do everything almost out the box but by god its a hog

    I have run Magento on Evo before with no problems, Toby there is very helpful.

    Evo do offer VPS/Dedicated etc, but in limited amounts, it maybe worth you asking if they have spaces :)

    Magento can be resource hungry. You need to have tuned Magento software but also tuned webserver/database software on the server side. This can make a huge difference to both capacity and site load speeds.

    How big is the site and how much do you expect it to grow?

    I also second a VPS (one that you can upgrade as needed) and then transfer to a dedicated when the resources determine you need one.

    Happy to answer any further questions if it helps (we host quite a few big Magento sites)

    Matt
