Although PharSide does not work directly in the hosting arena, we know what makes a good hosting company. We also can appreciate hosting firms that are friendly to the developer yet cost effective to the boss. Over the years, our experience and extensive research has lead us to endorse only one hosting company (1and1 Internet). We choose 1and1 after working with companies like Go Daddy and HostWay for several years and found them to not only be easier to work with but the speed of their servers has been unmatched by any of their competitors.
For clients with current design/development contracts with PharSide, choosing the right hosting company will guarantee no additional setup or consulting time needed where as some other hosts you choose might. All server configurations and settings are different depending on the hosting company and some take uis longer to setup than others.
