HostMediaUK site migration complete

I'd been unhappy with my current hosting provider for a while, the performance just wasn't there, and the more I pushed the boundaries of development the more blocks I encountered. Also they were running old versions of ColdFusion and an old JVM which was having an effect on some Java development.

About three months ago I bought a test account with HostmediaUK. I thought I'd venture into Linux based ColdFusion 9 hosting and see how it worked out. I dropped a few test sites onto the platform and discovered a few migration issues around Linux, obvious things to me now, but case sensitive database table names and a totally different file directory system caused me major headaches.

That being said the server performance is great. sites respond well to requests, is easy to manage through the software layer installed on the servers, and when I requested access to the DNS settings it was freely given (albeit with the usual 'here be dragons' warning!).

The customer service is great too, they keep winning awards and I can see why. I've just finished migrating the rest of my site to their platform, it is rare that I recommend a service but I'd point anyone in the direction of HostmediaUK.

bigmadkev's Gravatar Would be interested to hear who your old hosting company was :)

I've decided to move from a £50 a month VPS to the £25 a year plan with HostMedia makes much more sense IMHO for what I was doing

Shaun's Gravatar Might be slightly controversial to name and shame them. Lets just say I wasn't ok was running ColdFusion 7 anymore.

I'd done a load of work with QR codes and the Google ZXing Java app, but it requires a 1.6 jvm file. After waiting over 2 months for a server update from jvm 1.4 I was fed up enough to migrate.

HostMedia do make a lot more sense finance wise, I went in low and have stepped up my account twice :-)

Addens's Gravatar locales react well to demands, is anything but difficult to oversee through the product layer introduced on the servers, and when I asked for access to the DNS settings. http://ukdissertationpros.com/
