    Default Recomendations about an Alpha5 application host?

    Does anyone have good or bad experience with current Alpha5 application hosts? I am going to be in the market to use one and would like to avoid any obviously poor services if someone else was unfortunate enough to discover them. Are the hosts advertised on the Alpha5 site the only options?

    I will probably opt for VPS to start. Reliability is critical. My clients will not need to use it more than a few times a week but that time cannot be made up later so missed data entry will stay missed if the host is not reliable.

    Thanks in advance for recommendations.

    Chuck

    I'm familiar with Zebrahost and Webjogger, and recommend both. If there are others it's only for my own ignorance so I'm not dismissing anyone else.

    I use Zebrahost and highly recommend the service. Clive is very responsive. He has an understanding of Alpha and a relationship with the developers. He's worked through a couple snags with me until they were fully resolved.

    I also recommend ZebraHost. I have over a dozen customers using ZebraHost VPS with good results. Clive is very responsive...the man must never sleep!

    I found it odd that prices for plans were not posted at the Zebrahost site.

    Can anyone cite some rough numbers?

    Frank,
    I just googled and went to their site and found this....

    http://zebrahost.com/main/page_servi...vps_plans.html

    Isn't this what you need?

    Thanks for the replys. Think I will go with Zebra host for a year and see how things go.
