Best PowerStore Hosting Companies

Hi All,

I just purchased PowerStore 3 and eCart 5. I'm now trying to decide which hosting company to go with for a US based ecommerce site. I know 1&1 is heavily recommended on the WebAssist site but I need a few other options to show my client.

I am particularly interested in Hosting companies mentioned on as this seems to be a good resource for hosting company reviews.

My client is on a budget.

What hosting companies are other people using with minimum difficulty?

I would say GoDaddy is probably the worst host is you have any plans of ever getting larger or trying your hand with some advanced coding.

As far as features, uptime, and unbeatable customer service; I have found that Little Oak is by far and away been the best for my needs.

Thanks for the input. I already host a few sites with GoDaddy so it would be simple to use them but I am now considering Blue Host. This research has brought up the question of SSL certificates now. I notice Bluehost sells a comodo SSL cert. Although I'm in the UK, my client is in the US so I'm wondering how people over their view comodo. Any input?

Thanks again,

Hosting Companies!

Hi everyone!
I am using Fat Cow for 2 clients,
No problem with setting up power store 3, tech support online chat is good, depends on who you get? I had problems with MySql exporting, and they had difficulty trying to figure out
I finally resolved the issue myself, I was just trying to backup my database at fat cow for power store!

other than that issue, I have had good uptime, and quick response to technical issues.
Not sure of the SSL costs?
using this link can get you a discount rather than going direct to Fat
My site: hosted at fat cow, I still am in the process of adding content

the other is not a power store site thou!

Thanks Dennis, I am considering either Fat Cow or Blue Host. BTW, when I talked to a sales person via chat yesterday I managed to get info about a deal on SSL certificates - he showed me the following page (I have no affiliation with these guys):


I haven't used this so I can't say whether it still works or not. Not sure if that is interesting to you at all.

I've used for most of my accounts but I'm now considering switching to bluehost. What you have to look out for is the extras.

Powweb does not offer dedicated IP and even though they offer an SSL certificate for $49 I don't feel comfortable with an ecommerce site there.

Justhost is $19 per year for a dedicated IP but their SSL is $69

Bluehost is $30 for a dedicated IP and $45 for an SSL.

Powweb is $16 a year for domain renewal. Bluehost offers the domain free for as long as they host the account. I believe justhost is the same.

Powweb parks domains for $16, justhost for $15 and bluehost is $10.

If you have a lot of parked or pointed domains that makes bluehost look good.

I manage one domain on bluehost and found the support good. I have had good support with powweb as well. When I called justhost to ask for details everytime I tried to get to sales it disconnected. I hung on for support and had about a 7 minute wait. When I disconnected from the justhost site it brought up a popup asking me to verify that I actually wanted to leave their site. (The nerve of me>)

I think I'm going to set my next site up on bluehost and I will gradually move my parked domains there as they come up.
