You right Chappy; I thought how come they could be in technical support when not knowing MySQL is also an RDBMS.

And startlogic sales guys got back to me this evening. Quoting from the communique.

"Xoops appears to be on PHP and MySQL which we both support. Make sure the versions match ours PHP VERSION 4.4.1 and MySQL 4.0.16.

Other than that there should be no reason you couldn't use Xoops"

LOL.

BroHam - your post initiated me to contact them again. You are right, techies on the other side really are not techies.

Dot5Hosting agent first responded that they do not allow XOOPS due to server restrictions. When asked why, the response was that the person thought XOOPS used relational databases which was not supported at dot5.

When conveyed that my site built on XOOPS will only use their MySQL databases, I was told that it will be supported. That was interesting.

At startlogic, they did not know what XOOPS was, in the first place. I gave an overview and directed them to xoops.org. They got back and said 'sorry, we do not support XOOPS based sites'. But they support Mambo, phpbb, phpnuke and wordpress.

When I asked them for the reason, i was directed to their sales department. Yet to hear from their sales; once i do, i'll post it here.

Thanks,

After a bit of research, I shortlisted dot5hosting.com, hostmonster.com and startlogic.com as options to host my website that is developed using XOOPS 2.0.16 framework.

When I contacted the service providers last night, dot5hosting.com and startlogic.com responded saying they do not allow XOOPS based website on their shared hosting plans.

Would anyone know why that is? Does XOOPS have that severe security issues to compromise other sites in the shared atmosphere? Or is there any other reason for the denail? Just curious to know why.

Both dot5hosting.com and startlogic.com said they are okay running Joomla based sites; I'm contemplating switching to joomla.

Thanks,
