Better than laughing squid, but not much more expensive?

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth

Howdy! Nice to meet you

This is my first post here, so I guess I’ll take the chance to introduce myself: name’s Lautaro, 24 year old, been programming since I was 13.

I’m currently working as a Java dev at Thomson Reuters, and on a personal project in my free time.

I’ve been using Laughing Squid for hosting. They’re really reliable, I love the admin panel and the servers are always up. It only costs 8 USD a month and I’m getting everything I need: 2GB space, 50GB bandwidth, 1000 computer cycles.
They actually run over rackspace infrastructure, I believe. Maybe resellers, dunno.
I really love the hosting, except for one little issue: all requests seem to have a delay of over 3 seconds!

My page,, is taking about 6 seconds to load now-a-days. And I know that’s definetively driving users away. Heck, even I can’t stand navigating the site like this!

Anyhow, I was wondering if any of you knew of a better (or at least, as good as) hosting. I don’t need more space or bandwidth, just better response times.

I’m looking for something less than 30 USD a month if possible.
