Greetings to all! 
I'm in need of advice regarding shared hosting or VPS. My goal is to host 27 websites and I require a minimum of 100 gigabytes of disk space. 
Regular backups are a must, and I'm looking for a plan that costs no more than $10 per month. If possible, I would prefer a data center located in Belgium. However, the most important aspect for me is to find a reliable web hosting service that won't experience constant downtime and will operate smoothly.


OVH (Europe) offers a similar service to what I am suggesting - VPS Cloud 1 with auto backup service available as an additional feature.

In my opinion, Bluehost is a great option despite not knowing the exact cost. I have special privileges as a longtime user since 2002.

VPS pricing starts at around $150 per year, and comes with 850 GB storage. The speed has not been measured but it has been sufficient for PageSpeed Insights on all projects, including heavy Joomla templates. However, without Cloudflare, the speed drops to around 70.

In terms of backup, they offer an hourly backup service that is hard to beat - even when compared to other hosting services.

The server that I am currently using hosts around a hundred different websites, and has at least 850 GB of open video hosting space. It will definitely be enough for the rest of my life.

The hosting provider is located in England, while the "cloud" is located within their infrastructure.


When it comes to hosting your website or application, it is important to consider that it generates a large amount of data on its own, including background processes. Therefore, it is essential to choose a hosting provider thoughtfully.

To make an informed choice, there are certain parameters that you must take into account. Firstly, determine your needs regarding memory, expected daily traffic, the amount and weight of the data that will be stored.

Secondly, decide on the type of hosting that suits your requirements. The cost and potential for scaling depend on the hosting option you select.

Thirdly, you need to take into consideration the administration aspect of hosting such as who will set it up and maintain it. This may involve hiring an employee or utilizing a specialist from the hosting provider.

Lastly, additional features like SSL certificates, protection against cyber attacks, and an easy-to-use management platform are important considerations when choosing a hosting provider.
