I originally set up my store with Godaddy. I have a premium hosting account that I have a few simple HTML sites running on. Installation was totally fine and I was up and running in no time. I started uploading a few JPEGs from my 8 megapixel camera. That all was fine. But as soon as I tried to upload a few shots that were stitched together (larger than 3456px x 2304px) then it broke. Thing is I didn't get an error, so I happily went on uploading a few more photos. Then when I went and looked for my images, they were not there. Turns out Godaddy didn't have enough Ram allocated to my premium account (I could not find out anywhere how much they were dedicating), so the next step up on their server was a virtual dedicated server. I was seriously contemplating that. It was $30/month. More if I would like options like a Plesk control panel, or backups. Then I looked further into it and discovered that I would be responsible for my own PHP security patches & stuff like that. I don't have time to keep up with all of that. I'd rather be playing in PhotoShop.


So I went back to KTools web site saw that the folks were running servers. I went with nbshosing.info because, well to be honest, he had the cheapest starter plan. I figured that until my site started making any money, I didn't want to commit tones of cash to hosting.


I'm sure the hosting sites that the KTools folks run are great, but I have not run into any problems (taken with a grain of salt - I have only been up and running for a few weeks). But whenever I have had a dumb question (I messed up my email control panel & forgot to CHMOD a directory) Both the NBS Hosting Guys and Ktools guys responded immediately.

Had reports that godaddy has a limit of the amount of files that can be put into one folder. So if you have a lot of folders you may hit that limit and will not be able to upload anything more.

I've been told the limit is 1000 files per folder but I have several folders with more than 1000 files and all seems well at this point though GoDaddy runs a bit slow from time to time as the server load increases.
