I am looking for a provider to my website. I've found this one:
anyone has experience with this host?they claim to have technicians that do all the hard work like configuring the all system, I just need to send them my files.
Could anyone give me a list of reliable providers for the ez publish platform?

i have to admit that i don't know this hoster. But here is another german one, probably you won't learn german. The disadvantage about webspace hosters is that you do not have the full access.
Here is a german hoster, sothat you can maybe compare:
There is also Ixonos:
Maybe your needs are much more simple and lightweight? If yes, why do you use eZ?
I would recommend for serious business, that you'll checkout somthing like a virtual/dedicated managed server solution where you can run a bunch of ez-Instances and are godlike-admin.
Maybe we can discuss this here

Hi chris.Thank you for your help.really at this moment My needs are very lightweight. I have a simple site,that presents my company. But in the future i wish to evolve the platform to a e-business and incorporate other sites from associated companies.But the thing is that i don't have the time to manage a server.i've developed the site on my own but i don't won't to bother myself with servers and keeping the server updated and stuff like that.I just want to send my files and don't think more about it.What is your advise to this?Thank you.

Consider a fully managed Linux VPS (Virtual Private Server) to install your eZ Publish instance(s). You have full access and control over your server environment (root ssh, install software etc.), you are isolated from other neighbouring VPS on the same server, with a much lower cost than a dedicated server.

I completely understand your needs. But if you work with eZpublish you really should start thinking about getting in touch with basic shell commands. I give you this advice because you want to evolve your business and thats a good plan with eZ. The thing is you took a enterprise CMS, that means complexity is in my opinion a bit higher than in CMS wider spreaded. Another reason why eZ is not that simple and easy handle is that it is not included in any scriptpacks like fantastico (a few hosters use them and it is pretty simple to install scripts on the webspace).
So what can you do know? Set up a linux/windows/C64 Server on your own and try to install everything on your own with the risk of heavy security leaks/performance problems/ etc. or use a click-adventure webspace-offer the most hosting providers offer, not very recommendable but also possible.
Both alternatives are not really suiting your desired solution. So i would recommend to rent a managed virtual server in your case. Then someone will take care of your needs and you can grow your business without getting too deep into Linux/Apache/etc. When this solution reaches it limits you can think about a managed dedicated server or even a cloud solution, depends how fast your business is growing.
So please let me know when you managed to set up eZ on that C64-Server At least you never should avoid the shell, its your friend. Hope this helps you and you get some good points.

I think I know the basics about linux and Apache. At this moment I have my own server at home with ez installed, and I set up everything on my own. But like I said, I don't have the time to manage the server properly and I will mess up with security eventually.
I guess a virtual server could be a good solution for me. Could you recommend me one?
Thank you for your help.

I'll share what we are using for our website (http://WebSoftix.com), it may be useful to you to see how a specific hosting package performs: the hosting is on 1and1 using theirs Business Package.
Great about it (short list):
- you don't have to manage the server
- you have ssh access
- you have git available (our site run on a git based eZ installation for easy maintainability)
- you can't run the scripts as you don't have PHP CLI availble (only cgi and fcgi).
For our site it's working enough well, we don't have high traffic of special requirements that would make running the conscripts a must so if you have something similar then it may worth give a shot.
Let me know if you have any questions.
All the best,
