I had to leave my small town hosting company, they were great for years but then put a limit on email storage, so I decided to shop around.
I ended up with arvixe. At first I was very happy, my static site ran well on it and so did opencart until I started adding alot of products. Then they went to complete crap, the servers were crashing for 3 weeks so I dump them.
I went on a trial with dinahosting (recommendation from this forum). The trial was great, super fast, but then they were asking for my drivers license, I don't know if that is an overseas thing, but I've never been asked for that kind of personal information from a host and I'm not about to give that info away. The servers had also crashed twice in 2 weeks, it was for a very short time, but I was not convinced.
So now I'm back to arvise, i had prepaid for 2 years after all. It seems like the servers are back to being stable for now, but opencart still runs slower then I would like. On good days, i get near instant load time, but most days its 2-6 secs to load, that is not acceptable.
So who has a good host to recommend for under 150$ a year?
if you seek a professional Swiss Based Server and the leading Swiss Hoster.
Depending on the amount of Sites, I have 40+, it will cost you about 130 US-$
per Year, up to 10 Sites, I believe. And you could easy host 10 Shops, and their
DB's, without EVER running into any problems. PayPal is accepted, but possibly,
you have to identify yourselfs, somehow, since certain Laws exist, I assume...

I went with WX hosting, it was a bit out of my price range, but i managed to get a bit of a deal and i could not be happier with their service. I only have 150 products but it was so slow on other hosts, even with a bunch of options turned off.
With wx, i have everything turned on and its lighting fast. I would really recommend them and i'll be sticking with them. the customer service is fast too and they are knowledgeable about opencart.
