I’m thinking about changing my ISP. Hurricane Electric worked fine so far, but I started to care about some things that are simply impossible with this ISP.

  • he.net pros: per month contract, no setup fees, no hidden costs, reselling allowed
  • he.net cons: only one database per account, subdomains not allowed, no PHP 5, no Ruby, very basic admin interface

I thought that lunarpages.com could be a good alternative, but I’m not sure anymore, after carefully reading their site. The price announced is the classic “starting from” which I hate: it refers to the 24 months prepaid contract. For any contract less than 12 months there is a 30 dollars setup fee. And the minimum contract is 3 months. They give you lots of space, but reselling is not allowed. An interesting feature is that they allow adult content, as long as it is legal in California.

bluehost.com has the same pricing structure, even if they say “no hidden costs”. Besides they charge 10 dollars for each domain… They don’t allow any adult content, nor nudity, nor anything related. An interesting feature is that you have to edit lingerie pictures if you can see through!
