I’d like to start off by thanking everyone who commented on my first ColdFusion Host Post. Comments from those with host experience is extremely helpful when considering whether or not to take a chance with some of the lower-priced hosting providers.
Since I wrote my first CF Host post, I signed up for an account with HostFolio. So far they have been fantastic. I have spoken personally with support and they were very accommodating and helpful which gave me a nice feeling right from the start. Then, to reinforce my positive experience even further, they upgraded to CF 8 in August. Performance has not been an issue and the one time there was downtime it was for scheduled maintenance which I was notified of well in advance. In addition, the only tags that HostFolio disables are CFREGISTER and CFEXECUTE. I can’t speak personally for any of the other hosts on this list but I will give HostFolio a big thumbs up.
Removed from the list are IX Web Hosting and Host Department. If they choose to upgrade from CF5/6.1 they may make it back on the list but for now, being that far behind is simply unacceptable.
Added, thanks to user comments, are two new hosts: Canwebhost.com and HostNexus. Canwebhost offers an $8/month plan. At 50mb disk space and 2G Bandwidth I wouldn’t call the plan robust, but at least they’re offering CF7. HostNexus offers a 300M/10G plan for $9.95/month.
Hosting-ColdFusion just misses the list because of an extra $2/month charge for a real database.
So, here they are for September ’07:
