Hosting company recommendations?

33 replies
Today, I had to start all over..my theme "woo themes premium news" was being used. I had been officially with bluehost for 5 months I think and the site loaded great until today. I got a "Server Error". Talked to a rep and wiped my website out..

I took a huge hit..then told myself, okay lets load another "woo theme" and start from scratch again.. ironically 5 mins later loading another theme for wp it displays all funky. 5 minutes later "hit refresh tab" and I get a "server error" message again.

I`m realizing that it may be a "hosting problem" and these themes had all updated framework etc.

    Hmm, I've used Hostgator for quite some time and it's been ok so far.

    I wonder if it's a web wide problem.

    Always back your stuff up if you can.

    I have accounts with both Blue Host And Hostgator. Haven't had any problems with Blue Host so far. Hostgator has excellent tech support. I have had to use them on a couple of occasions and have always had good results. They usually answer really fast.

    Over the years I have had accounts with many hosting companies. For the most part they have all been good.

    Hope you can get your problem straightened out. You might also want to consider contacting support for the Woo themes as well.

    Good luck and much success.

    I used Blue Host in the past but honestly Hostgator is miles ahead in terms of pure customer service.

      I too have been using hostgator and what I love is the amazing customer support that they offer. They are really helpful especially if you are not a techy guy. I was using a host before which was total XXXX to say the least and since I have switched to hostgator I haven't had any major problems.

      I've used Hostgator for more than 5 years now without a single problem. It's support is awesome.

      Now, if you want go VPS, I strongly recommend StormOnDemand.com, a service from LiquidWeb. I've been using it for a year and a half now and it's GREAT.

    I'm using inmotionhosting and damned, their support is just TOP-NOTCH. I never had better support for any service I ever paid for. You just need to open the chat, and you get a professional (someone, who REALLY knows a lot) instantly to help you.

    I found out about inmotionhosting from Best Web Hosting Companies &ndash; Top 10 Website Hosts 2012

    best regards,

    Hey, I really Recommend Hostgator, and I think that most marketers will also recommend it. I really think its their awesome customer service that is Bar None... I really do love it... Maybe it is a little server issue. Sometimes the most unusual problems are caused by the simplest thing. Trace your steps back. Did you install something new that could have caused it?

    Hope this helps.

    Cheers,

    Alex

      Must agree with Tatw Whatever you do do not use godaddy, nothing seems to work on their platform and their support sucks.

      I've used a few including Hostgator who wasn't bad but I found to restrictive.

      but I changed to Lunapages shared hosting from hostgator's and all the scripts i wanted to run where not restricted and I have to say I've used them for 4 years and i can honestly say Only had one problem in that time when a plugin went berserk and caused problems. but instead of just shutting all my websites down they transferred it to a development server and contacted us and asked us to sort it, and with there help we did and they then transferred us back to the production server, but all the time our websites where live. Most in that situation they just shut you down.

      There support is excellent and usually when we have used it they have replied within 3 to 5 hours

      i also used to use Hostnine reseller hosting for about a year and can say never had a problem until our ecommerce stores outgrew the hosting have now changed to H9's VPS for last year. but have to say the downtime hasn't been up to standard but they seem to have it sorted now, But their Support response time is awesome as you get a reply to your support ticket normally within 5 minutes and the longest I think I've waited is about 10 min.

    Hostgator hands down for me.

    What i like best about them is their excellent technical & customer support.

    And the people are polite & patient especially if you are a newbie.

    I would personally recommend that you choose Hostgator, excellent customer service and very low prices for what they have to offer you. I recommend that you choose the 'baby package'.

    Just throwing it out there, I was with Hostgator when they went to unlimited bandwidth/storage.

    They were really up front about it. They also know that its not a true reality. In a sense, its true, since you could (if you keep with their TOS) continue to scale nearly indefinitely.

    The portion people don't usually consider, though, is that for shared hosting - you NEVER run out of bandwidth OR storage...before you cap your cpu/memory resources. Those are the REAL limits for shared hosting.

    Hostgator simply put things unlimited to compete with others. They were pretty up front about it. I doubt anyone has ever hit limits on the things they say are unlimited - they simply hit other limits first.

    As for the topic at hand - I switched to Hostgator a few years ago from another host. It was night and day. I've never had any real downtime with Hostgator at all, and I used to have to submit tickets every month or so to my old host to get my site back online. Can't say enough good things.

    • Hi James, that's sad they deleted all.
      That's why it's fundamental to do backups.

      Anyway, my favorite hosting, after I tried all, is Hostgator.
      They have all what you need for running everything, like Wordpress, Drupal, Joomla, and a lot of other things. It supported everything I launched.

      While other famous hosting companies, also famous, had not reached the high standards of Hostgator.
      So go for it and buy a Baby account to host unlimited websites.

      See you soon,

    Yes! HostGator is the right choice. I have asked many people and survey around when I just started out in Internet Marketing last time and I have came to the conclusion that HostGator is the best.

    Personally, I love their live chat support! Same goes to Namecheap!

    I use both GoDaddy for my wood product store and HostGator for my blog. I like HoastGator the best because of its CPanel, It's easy to use and you can load WordPress. They both have good customer service, but GoDaddy tech support won't help you with coding problems but HostGator will.

    Go with HostTheName, they have got the cheapest price and awesome customer service. They are the top hosting company on warrior forum and they also have a WSO, you can use the search feature and look for hostthename's WSO.

      I'd check the posting on Host the Name and except for the price I certainly would not use them again. My sites have been down for 48 hours and counting and support will not/ cannot give an answer as to when things will be fixed.

      Not the first time either.

      I also have an account with HostGator and I am truly sorry I moved half of my domains over to Host the Name.
