Need new hosting. Recommendations?
« on: July 09, 2019, 09:28:53 PM »
I got the dreaded EOL notice from my host and I'll soon need to be moving about a dozen domains. So I'm looking around to see what's out there for cheaper hosting.

The traffic is low enough that I can't justify a big spend.

Any recommendations? What questions should I be asking?

I'm using Siteground and they have been okay.

I would second Siteground. I only manage a single site (actually single account, two sites, one on Drupal, one on Wordpress) at Siteground, but they've been good.

I used to be a fan of Webfaction, but would now go for Siteground. It's more standard components. I would call both developer friendly (e.g. have git and other basic dev tools even on the cheapest shared accounts).

And I'm still a Linode fan if you want roll your own VPS.

They're UK based, but I moved to krystal last year and wish I did it sooner

Knownhost has been the best hosting company I've ever used, and that's saying a lot. (Probably 40-45 hosts over 20+ years.) If you need a managed server or vps, I wouldn't go elsewhere.

Same as Linode (or OVH) - great choice if you want to run your own VPS, but not if you want someone who will manage the server for you.
