    Web Hosting Providers

    We are looking for a Web Hosting company to work with us from next year (2011).

    We offer Joomla Training and Support, the training is aimed at anyone interested in designing their own website (no experience is required), at the end of the course you will have a completed website. In the course you will be taught local hosting design and once complete, live hosting and for this we would require the support of a trusted Web Hosting provider, we would like to refer all new business to them.

    Unfortunately our current host has replaced all telephonic support with only email support, making their email/online support useless and any changes that are done from their side aren't communicated through to us causing havoc on existing websites.

    If anyone knows of a really good Web Hosting provider, please let me know.

    Are you looking at local or international hosting, Cream?
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Cream,
    I use Softdux for paperkutz.co.za. The nice thing Rudi who runs it is also on the forum. So he looks after you, there is local and international hosting. Just so you know that is an affiliate link so maybe I get a beer or two out of it.
    Only stress when you can change the outcome!

    I've fixed that for you, Martin.

    I really need to find a way to give regular members better editing permisions than the newbs.
