After posting about qiq earlier and the recent hassles I’ve had with hasweb I decided to get a new hosting company and the offer from qiq seemed very good. I’ve also had some correspondence with the owner and this allayed some of my worries. I signed up on Thursday and received the password information within the 5 minutes they promised. I wasn’t able to get into the site using ssh until the following morning, but there was some confusion over the password synchronisations between the control panel and the actual server itself. Its now all sorted and I’ve installed a test implementation of wordpress to play with. The one thing that I really like is the ssh implementation as i was able to download, extract and install wordpress from the shell without having to download to my pc.
