Having access to PHPmyAdmin is a must.
I am a very experienced web programmer with a small, but critical business database. I am currently with IXWebhosting and I HATE them. I am on some shared mysql server and it is always losing connections to my programs and I know it is because they have too many folks doing too much.
I am wondering what hosting companies do mySQL that actually monitor usage and ping people for being hogs...or if there is some solution where I can ONLY have the mySQL database hosted with one company.
I just can't ever seem to get through to the service folks at IX and I am sick of sharing bandwidth to my critical business info with SQL hogging scripts (blogs, message boards, chat, etc...). I have a DB that is under 2MB and it is critcal that I can connect to it 24-7. I actually would not mind to keep the webhosting with IX. I like the control panel and they are actually not that bad...but the mySQL access is piss-poor.
I would be willing to pay up to $30 a month, but that is probably as high as I could go right now.
Any suggestions would be much appreciated.
