I'm using Server Logistics, and so far I've been happy with them. I opened my account with them a few years ago, when PHP 5.2 was current, so when I decided to switch to TT-RSS, I had to contact support to get them to update my PHP version to 5.3, but that was relatively painless. Not sure what version you get on new accounts, but it's not hard to get it updated.

I use Bluehost. They have MySQL and PostgreSQL. You can have a shell account and FTP access as well. I had a few issues initially getting the cron job to work but someone came up with a cron job for me that works great.

I'm using HostGator with one issue. I had to set up a cron job to call the update script since I cannot run a daemon. The default php is not 5.3 but they have both installed, so I just had to reference the full path for 5.3.

Not exactly a shared hosting provider, but I'm running TTRSS on an Amazon EC2 Micro instance. It's pretty darn cheap if you buy a reserved instance for a year. I was already using mine as a shell server, so it was really a no-brainer.

Dreamhost run it fine, as long as you remember to set the path to php, , git is also supported although I haven't used it to deploy ttrss.

I use it to update about 250 feeds every cron runs every 10 minutes (currently have about 10000 unread items - oops) and it's really quick.

Here is a post I made on the DH forums about setting it up:-
https://discussion.dreamhost.com/thread ... #pid168148

Also, you can use TTRSS as a promo to get $50 off (and I'll get a referral fee if you use it) - fox/admin remove this if you don't want me promoting it.

Any help needed on setting it up on DH, give me a shout.

This isn't shared hosting, but I've had good luck with so far. Their small VM instance is $5/month and handles TT-RSS with a single user just fine.

However - since it's a VM and not shared hosting - you NEED to know how to set up a firewall on linux, install packages, and configure things like Apache and MySQL/Postgres by hand. If you're comfortable with all that, though, it means you get full control. They even have DNS hosting included, and let you set rDNS records.
