Hi IT Guru's
I wonder if anyone here can help me. I run a small business where I am producing a large amount of audio files that I need my main client to be able to access on demand.
I have a 1GB hosting plan with Freeparking but it is no longer enough, I really need at least 5GB of storage. I am sort of forced onto a VPS to get that much storage. I am an ok newb with ssh, bash, mysql, I can even edit a few conf files. But I did not get the sysadmin gene and setting up a raw vps including mail and security is beyond me.
Having said that, this is a small part of my business and I'm trying to keep the cost to 40 per month or less, certainly not the 130 and up required for a "managed" VPS account with cpanel etc.
See, all I need is the disk space, not heaps of RAM, bandwidth or databases. I would really prefer to stay onshore, or Australia. I would like to keep it all in one, with my domain name, email etc. I have a custom php app that serves the media, so I need the media to be on my actual web domain, not on a folder on another site.
So I guess what I'm looking for is shared hosting with LOTS of space, or a VPS with some clever cpanel thing, for around 40 a month. AM I DREAMING ?
many thanks for any input.
