I was on Hurricane Electric for a very short while. They have great facilities and such, but their pricing can be much higher than others depending on your setup. I'm now using Pro Hosters (www.prohosters.com). The differences I found important were: - HE requires you to have a separate account for each domain name. This means a separate login, a bill for each one, etc. So, if you have 5 domains, it may cost you 5x more. Pro Hosters has a single login, single account setup (if you want), much easier to manage. - Pro Hosters seems to keep their PHP and other software versions more up to date. Last time I checked, HE's PHP version was a fairly early 4.x version, that for example, didn't have a bunch of array functions. - Pro Hosters support is awesome. They are incredibly responsive. Plus, they have IRC chat going all the time, and they are right there to respond, helpful, etc. - Pro Hosters was a lot easier to deal with for setup, configuration, and any other help I needed.
Aside from that, the pricing is pretty similar for a single domain name setup, features are fairly similar, but I've been much happier on Pro Hosters. Pro Hosters lower end accounts (which I'm using) are run on a big cluster of machines (running FreeBSD and Apache, PHP, MySQL, Perl, etc.). It's slick. They do have a web application that you use to file service requests and such, and I think it can either, or will be able to show you all your web site statistics and so on. -----Original Message----- From: Michael A.

Don't know what you mean by a control panel, but http://he.com/ is an excellent host. Very inexpensive, and you get full MySQL database as well as php and cgi-bin. They have a lot of bandwidth, too. -- -=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=- Michael A.
