I am looking to make myself a portfolio hosted on a New Zealand server. However my work is made using various programming languages eg. PHP, ASP.NET, MySQL.

Is there anywhere that provides a service to support all of these at a relatively cheap price?

If it needs to be in NZ I would suggest Net24's VPS

They are linux servers though so they won't support ASP will they?

no you can get windows or linux vps ... how many sites will you be making etc etc? VPS only worth it if you want to host multiple sites. But if you not too fuss godaddy is good and affordable too that's what I am on personally.

I have a PHP and MySQL site, 2 ASP.NET with Microsoft databases and a few basic HTML sites which all work locally. I basically want to just put them on the internet so people can see it. I guess it will need some configuring to get it all working online but thats something i'll have to work on. It will only be for a portfolio so I don't want to be paying high prices for it. So really my key factors are, cheap, PHP and ASP.NET. If it has to be a .com site I don't mind but I don't it to be slow as the people accessing it will be from NZ.

For a portfolio etc etc, I can't see anything wrong with godaddy, or any other might pay for you to go to ... web hosting talk forum and check diff hosts.

you'd want to have a windows server, shared is what you want to be cheapest. As far as the php as you only have one you might as well redo it to fit the windows server. You'll want to see their SLA and reviews that they receive on such forum.

Cheers

any reason why you would only have one PHP site and 2 ASP.Net site? unless it is of high importance why can't you migrate the PHP site to a ASP.net and just make do with one host. In saying that, I am sure I seen somewhere you can configure PHP to run on IIS?

If it were me, (and its not) I'd prob go for windows hosting, and then find some freebie Linux server somewhere and just link to that.  So your still only paying for the one account.

 

How elaborate is your PHP stuff?  Would screen shots tell the story well enough? (sorry if that Idea makes you squirm)

 

Openhost offer both Windows and Linux hosting options, I'm sure they'd offer you some sort of quazi hybrid package for a reasonable price is you asked nicely. 

 

Good luck.  Im a recent grad myself, in that I graduate next month.

I use WebDrive where you can have the (reseller) lite plan of $30 per month with one site included, and any extra site is $8 additional.

If you have 9 sites in total (1 included + 8 extras), then the reseller ultra plan of $60 per month and $4 per extra site be ideal.

I have made a spreadsheet (due to some weird HTML formatting that mucked up the GZ forum)

Each site can either be Linux or Windows, and you have multiple database options to use, MySQL, Postgerl, MSSQL etc.

I can't recall exactly which one but I've seen a Windows hosting options that has PHP enabled as well. I'm not that clued up on PHP so there may be some Apache-specific things that you may miss out on - not sure...

I run several PHP apps on my home server, which is a Win 2003 Ent Server and it's just fine. Having said that I'm not doing any fancy URL Rewrites and such - that may be one problem you may encounter, along with htaccess-related stuff.

Again, I'm not a PHP/Apache person so please take this with a bucket of salt until someone else corrects/confirm this.

Most important question is what is your budget, how much do you want to spend....

You can run asp.net 2.0 in Apache using mono on linux
You can also run php on iis on windows 2003

I would say you will probably need a vps, as shared hosting won't give you enough flexibility or control.
