There's lots of ground ("gaps") missing in-between the background. Beware.
There's that point in time where I'd like to get myself a good trusty hosting. Attempt to start any kind of project, get any community moving. Whatever. Long story short: I'm seeking for a good hosting (VPS/Dedicated, Website+SSL) for "rest of my life". One single provider that could provide trusted services for regular price.
I'm not asking about what Google says or what website promises, I can find them too: 1and1.com, hostinger.eu, m2host.com, hostgator.com, godaddy.com, westhost.com, dreamhost.com, greengeeks.com, one.com, hostgator.com, fatcow.com (what?), cyon.ch . There's LOTS of websites that say "We're the best", but I don't care about it. I care about YOUR personal opinion.
Do you know a provider which you would deem trustworthy? From YOUR OWN personal experience, no babble talk from 3rd person, no thebesthostings.com/totally-not-sponsored article, just YOU. I'm seeking for provider that would be able to provide 24/7 hosting for my theoretical website, with SSL. And also may provide VPS' or dedicated servers. With reasonable price (doesn't have to be cheapest, as long as it's worth it's price). Management either entire CLI, or nice GUI prefered.
This choice will most likely stick with me for the rest of my predicted life (as long as hosting is still available). So the honest and informational answers are quite important for me on this one.
Once again, do not refer to Google, I'm asking YOU.
If there won't be concrete choice, I'm on track to sticking with hostinger.eu, which have XAMPP on their main website for some reason... oh lord.
