Having developed hundreds of websites for others as well as my own, I have had my fair share of experiences with a wide range of web hosting providers.
I’ve hosted sites with Bluehost, HostGator, InMotion, Hostway, DreamHost, HostMonster, and GoDaddy. All have their pros and cons, and hacked experiences.
GoDaddy and Bluehost were my once my go-to web hosting providers. I still have a few personal developed websites and projects that use GoDaddy shared hosting, but my go-to web hosting providers in this season are A2Hosting and RoseHosting.
For one, they offer way more affordable manage hosting virtual private server plans with greater scalability and performance that all previously used web hosting providers. I love the increased performance my websites have realized with SSD (A2Hosting) and NVMe (RoseHosting) storage. And don’t get me started about their quicker-than-lightning customer support experience — team is so personable and knowledge.
Quite honestly, I’m willing to pay more for customer support, managed services, and simply not to be ‘nickeled and dimed’ for every little thing and service offering.
While I love both A2Hosting and RoseHosting, I was reminded the other day about my experience of attempting to SSH into my RoseHosting environment.
