Hey guys, new to the forum, having some issues and would appreciate some help.

I've been hosting my site in one shared hosting provider for the past few years, it's been good, but recently support has been garbage, unknowledgeable and they have 

been making mistakes left and right. Not to mention the limitations in the data allowed, indoes being exceeded and honestly just brutally bad technical support.

So, what is the best? Move to dedicated server with high/unlimited bandwidth? Or move the backend services and website hosting to dedicated then keep the mail 

somewhere else?

I need to host websites, emails and backend service. The biggest needs are:
1. Fast, reliable and stable web hosting.
2. Same for email.
3. Root level Linux access for the service.
4. I don't want to get complex so I'm looking for cPanel managed services.
5. I want a web hosts which located their data center in europe, UK or France servers are preferred (this because of speed)
6. Preferably using Centos Linux for dedicated server.

I've been looking around at different hosts and I found that Hostforlife.eu can support my need. Are you familiar to them?  Or if you have another recommendation, 

please let me know.
Thank you!

This is the TurnKey Linux forums. We provide a library of Debian based software server appliances.

We do not currently have an email (webmail) appliance so I guess that's point 2 ruled out. Also we don't do cPanel (only open source software here!) so that sort of rules out point 4. However all our appliances include Webmin which is pretty user friendly.

So back to your points in order; one is covered although the final result would be defined by the host you chose... As I said we can't help with 2.

3 we do OOTB. 4 is cool (so long as Webmin is ok for you).

5 if you use the TurnKey Linux Hub then you can use Amazon's Irish data centre as your backend. Otherwise we have lots of other Partners; many of whom are based in Europe.

And as I said right at the start; we're Debian based so we don't quite tick that box for you; but Debian's a good system IMO! :)
