I’m a veteran ex-developer who has hosted with a few companies: fast comet, wooservers, and site ground. All are good, but le...展開
ap switch is better. With fast comet, they use crappy nginx as their webserver. For people who don’t do anything with their sites, it’s not a problem. But if you’re PHP-heavy on the backend, use any webserver that doesn’t handle PHP requests natively (like nginx), and you’re asking for trouble. Wooservers is good, but their prices are now stupid. I had no problems with site ground, but after the initial term is up, they also want stupid money. For the price they quoted me for 1 year, it cost me less for 3 years of service with leap switch and I got a dedicate IP on a shared server! I’ve been with them for over a month and have yet to see the site down. When running a business, this is by far top priority. Although they are based in india, they have servers in the U.S.
I had previously used a2hosting for wordpress and it worked great. However, recently I tried to move my node/express website ...展開
from heroku to a2 and it got as bad as it could get. First of all It says it costs $4.90/month, but when purchased it, I had to, for someone reason, pay $7, thought I initially thought it'll be alright, later I realized It was only for the 1st month, and after that I'll have to pay $13/ month. That's straight cheating, I would've sued them if it had happened in a larger scale. And I think it's currently true for php/wordpress hosting as well.
Furthermore, documentation for node is very very bad, I was initially very gald as someone was giving node hosting at reasonable price, but hey nothing is free.
1. Server just does not serves webpages, kept getting download prompt for my PHP files!!
2. The support is very casual a...展開
nd the issues remain unsolved even after multiple intimations.
3. Their Pagespeed just doesn't work, which they promised that it does.
4. No Refund of money in your account even when you don't like their service.
