Which web host for IAP?

Chat about anything not covered in these forums, but keep it civil!

I'm looking for a web host (doesn't need to be free!) which should have these features:

- I can use my own domain name
- email, blog, forums, display videos and html5 demo of my game
- able to cope with IAP (in app purchases) from an IOS game

1. What would I need for IAP? PHP or something else?

2. Can you recommend me a good host to go with?

3. Anyone I should stay away from?

4. This one looks good, does anyone use it or is it missing features I'd need for IAP?

Thanks for your help!

Well I was hoping for at least some comment on this. Looks like yet another thing to figure out alone.

I recently switched from godaddy to hostgator. For iAp you will need some sort of server coding such as php. Also consider most people frown on buying from unsecure networks so when you look around, look for php 5+ with MySQL storage or equivalent and https. For my needs hostgator fit the bill. But I'm still new so I'm guessing others will have better recommendations.

@lanceal Sounds good! One other question - do you know if you could host an html5 version of your game on a hostgator website?

Yes, I believe all hosts would allow for HTML5 games. If I'm not mistaken html5 is browser technology not server. So all hosts would work.
