    Looking for a web host for development work.


    My current web host no longer meets my needs, they were purchased and I'm not fond of some new policies. I require:

    * CentOS v6 (64) or CentOS v7. - this is important, my target is Red Hat Enterprise of the same versions.
    * Root access
    * FTP (terminal, not "control panel")
    *I will be installing a LAMP stack with some custom configurations, I will be installing my own RPMs - I don't need any software resources from the host other than the OS installed on the server.


    I develop web-based applications for aerospace. Naturally, I do so on my own server at home, but of course clients need to see them in action.

    I also my store and serve my extensive collection of funny cat pictures from this box.

    It can be a dedicated server or shared, but I'm not interested in "cloud", although really I don't care how they spin it up at their end as long as it "looks" like a stand-alone CentOS install at my end.. It will be used for development testing so bandwidth is not much of an issue.

    I would prefer a help desk that can engage in intelligent troubleshooting, though I don't expect to need it, I just don't want to be treated like a total idiot.

    Naturally, I want a good price...

    Your recommendations would be much appreciated.

    So it seems like you are just looking for a clean OS. Most of the providers will do that. Check the hosting directory TWHDIR.
    You will be able to compare 150+ companies and check 1100+ vps plans globally. You can select the resources you require and the budget and it will display all the matching all results.
    You can also compare plans from different providers and check their reviews before selecting any one.

    I would suggest you to go with cloud hosting platform because its fast and secure and easy scalable cloud platform like AWS , DO , Linode and if you face difficult to manage
    this hosting server then let's go with manage hosting platform like Cloudways OR Forge

    AWS is times more expensive than any average cloud infrastructure provider. They overcharge for data transfer compared to most Cloud Haas providers. They also charge for technical support, while at the same time it is included it most other cloud services.
