ifferent [in a good sense].
I used the WordPress hosting service (+ free one year domain name). You can also protect your domain registration details with only £5 per year.
The cPanel is extremely well-designed, with an intuitive UI/UX. You get access to phpMyAdmin, MySQL database, and even public_html through their directory manager located inside cPanel. In the case of migration, the whole process is an absolute breeze with the help of their customer service (this is precisely set up for people who don't want to waste their time on technical issues unlike me :-D). The backup is done automatically on weekly or daily basis, based on your chosen plan. The great part about it is with a little bit of technical know-how you can back up your website manually at any time; they don't restrict you at all.
The installation process is very easily, and your website is only a couple of clicks away from you [although I prefer more manual installation - which is a breeze with their great documentations]. In addition to that, they also offer Git integration and SSL certification for free that can be used/activated with just a couple of clicks (in the case of SSL, with only one click).
Customer service team are very friendly (Emily and Neringa) and effective; on average, you get responses in less than 3 hours (through emails, preferable for nerds like me).
All in all, I highly recommend using them as your web-hosting provider. Particularly if you're looking for a great WordPress host.
I stayed with them for 2 years now and had to switch servers on different occasions. Their customer service team tries to hel...展開
p you but they are unreliable at times. On one interaction I told them that my server is becoming really slow and the associate sent me links about how I can improve my loading times by decreasing size of images. I sent them the site data before I started seeing this issue and they still claimed it was my problem but only to find out that one of the sites sharing the server with me were under ddos attack. They told me that they would transfer me to a new server and this won't repeat again only after two months and a down time of four days that asked me to move server again this time due to issues with cloudflare.
Signed up for a free trial, within days my account was suspended, barely even used it, they required all sorts of documents, ...展開
gave them the documents, they reinstated my account. Didn't like it and shut down the server. They kept charging me month after month, customer service basically didn't listen.
There's not a single resource being used on any of the console pages, all month my dashboard said current usage was at $0 and then at the end of the month I get charged, complain about it, ask for refund, they handwave it away. There's literally nothing I can shutdown to stop the charges and if I deactivate my account I can't get a refund.
These people are liars and thieves, as crooked as they come, stay away, way better hosts out there
