Where to find reliable PAY PHP/MySQL hosts
There was an earlier thread regarding free PHP/MySQL hosting, but I am interested in finding a reliable paid server that is not really expensive, but not crappy either. I have searched Google, but came up with so many hits I do not even know what's a good deal or a total rip.
I am interested in installing a PostNuke forum with shopping cart capabilities, but I do not know if this is too much of a security risk.
Also, as for hosting my own, my ISP does not allow servers.
Thanks for your help,

I didn't know he wanted free... D'oh! But if you'll see my reply under that post, there's your decent pay php/mysql (eryxma)... $36 a year is a pretty good deal for what your getting... (No, I don't get a cut )
I've run a couple of sites using Nuke, but you really need to stay up on the exploits/updates... For some reason, they are always a target... I don't know if it's the PHPNukers vs. PostNukers, or what the deal is...

I found my host:
And although I've had some problems, since the owner has been moving things around the past week, the service is excellent and gives a lot for a low price, I also saved in buying my domain with the package.
At Findmyhosting.com they're set up by users ratings, services offered, and prices.
Hope that helps.

I used www.imhosted.com (the people who host) www.evrsoft.com a free cool html edting resource, now an excellent portal for webmasters.
I cancelled them recently because their mail server has been down for 2 weeks they told they would fix it... never did.
I am consider signing up with www.gisol.com They look legit, although they advertise lower prices.. they are actually more expensive. (Unless you prepay)The GB transfer is the best for being 15 bucks a month. Check em out.
Also some search engines are
