@chinesedream, So have you settle on any webhost yet? I have sign up with serverfreak.biz (supreme package) and I encountered the following:
- SSH is not a given, you’ll have to request it
- pdo_mysql was reported not to be installed, serverfreak said it’s installed and eventually fix it
- Fatal error: Allowed memory size of 33554432 bytes exhausted (tried to allocate 491520 bytes), so serverfreak increased it to 64k, still far short of the recommended 128k for Magento
Magento Connect did not work for me: Exception caught: Warning: popen() has been disabled for security reasons in /home/mywebsite/public_html/downloader/pearlib/php/OS/Guess.php on line 247
Solution: Write a ticket to ServerFreak helpdesk. popen was enabled and problem solved.
Helpdesk is impeccable and response is fast. For speed, you can checkout the speed of the demo website http://magento-demo.serverfreak.com/ and my site malayakisses.com.
