I’m looking to move from Arvixe, as their PHP/MySQL execution seems to be sluggish. I think my shared server there might be overloaded — I got a disk full error recently, and my plan is unlimited.

They seem to be good in almost every other regard, but I really need MySQL queries to run faster, as even my simple stuff takes a while to load up.

My ceiling is something like $10/month right now. Linux/PHP/MySQL. I don’t need much space or transfer right now, 1GB/10GB should do it. And I don’t care if it’s shared, but I do need good throughput and performance.

As a side note, back in the day there was a “findmyhosting” site, which had spoiled me with its neat full-featured unbiased database including customer ratings and reviews. It seems to be defunct now (unless my googling skills have failed me) and all “listing” sites in existence now seem to be poorly-disguised spam. Is there currently any such go-to listing site people use?
