Re: Recommended Hosting for BuddyPress site?

Well, I’ll chime in here. I prefer Slicehost.

It’s not for everyone. In fact, it’s not for most people. It is for us techie guys that want to control absolutely everything. It’s a company built by software developers for software developers.

When you purchase a slice, you have to install (yourself) the server OS, the web server, database servers, mail client, web packages, your custom files, etcetera. You are in total control of the environment. You basically build your own production box from scratch–although you actually are in control of a virtual machine on one of their servers unless you buy all the slices on a give physical box.

Blah, blah, blahbity, blah…

If any of this scares you, then Slicehost is not for you.
