You guys are so good!!! Not only can I test my PHP scripts on your server, I can also edit my files in your text editor, save it in here and then run them on the subdomain. AWARDSPACE should, without a doubt be at the top of free/paid server providers. Thanks a million!! Users can easily setup WordPress or Joomla sites. They have a one-click installer. Also, FreehostingEU supports PHP, MySQL, CGI, Perl, Flash. They do have paid plans which range from $4.95 to $7.95 a month. When I test with pingdom from their Melbourne (Australia) site the time is closer to 3 seconds.
Dreamhost has been an independent company since it was founded in 1997, and it has offices in Los Angeles and Brea in California, and Portland, Oregon. Many of its peers have been swallowed by larger hosting groups, so this is a credit to its business model and the commitment of its founders. Over the years, Dreamhost has become famous for its generous 97-day money-back guarantee. It has introduced cloud hosting and computing services to broaden its portfolio, and improve reliability. SSH usually listens for network traffic on port 22, and the SSH on our virtual server will be no different. We can tell VirtualBox to open a port on our local computer, and send all network traffic that it receives on that port, to a port on our virtual server. So we’re going to open port 2222 on our host machine, and forward all traffic to port 22 on our virtual machine. When we use the ssh port to connect to port 2222 on the host, we’ll wind up talking to the SSH service on the virtual machine.
