So, for various reasons, I'm looking around UK based hosting to figure out if there is a decent alternative to dreamhost.

My requirements:

  • Hosting for 15 domains owned by three different users.
  • Some form of account system (WHM?) so the other two can do what they want with their stuff but not see each others or mine.
  • At least one mysql database per domain, though one domain currently has two DB's.
  • DNS servers and management
  • PHP 5.5 or later
  • Perl Support
  • Ruby/NodeJS/Python support a plus
  • Let's Encrypt support
  • No "first 10 emails free then £x each" crap.
  • Catch-all email support (i.e. ability to capture any email sent to a domain no matter what the but before the @)
  • Google Apps integration a plus (but not a necessity)
  • SSH Shell Access!
  • Decent disk space and bandwidth (Dreamhost claims unlimited for both and I've never had them complain about either)
  • A price somewhere around thee $11 (£9) a month of Dreamhost (though I could go a little more

Also interested in opinions on VPS vs shared hosting, I'm currently using Dreamhost's shared option.
