Shared Hosting

I hate shared hosting… it’s a pain. Two days offline, Reason : “SQL load is to high…”. I didn’t get before any note, any warning, any message or email. They simply shut down the page. Great… Happy weekend

    Shared hosts are a bit of a hit and miss…
    One host that tries really hard to provide quality service is WebFaction ( )

    i have a small website and i can totally agree with you. Most of the hosters have to many users on her servers. All users are affected by one guy with a terrible script.

    Especially the new trend to ‘unlimited’ space/traffic is the death of high performance websites.

    The only way is an own dedicated server

  3. I couldn’t agree more with you.
    Both on the Shared Hosting thing … and the Happy Weekend 🙂

  4. Thank you for the AWESOME WP-plugin by the way.

    You might want to look into a “Virtual Private Server” plan. They tend to be more expensive, but you get a virtual server all to yourself.

    I have about 15 WP blogs running on mine… and it works like a champ.

    That’s why I got my own server! €800,- 2GB mem; 2x 2,66Ghz; 2x 500GB; 1000Mbp/s + Windows Home Server (ISS build in)!!!

    I feel your pain. Almost the same thing happened to me twice in a month. For a project I’m working on the guys already had a domain and hosting arranged. But their server is sucky, and the support is zero. First time they shut it down, second time they disabled cron-jobs, and when our mass-mailing went out (and people would come and visit) the server went down (because of the load…?) In a weekend and of course the standard response via the helpdesk : nothing at all.

    I’m going for dedicated hosting, that’s for sure.

    btw, your plugin gets better and better

    Yes, I feel a “home” server (Better with apache than Windows) is a good solution as long as you have enough bandwidth.

  11. Graham says: is a good idea – been around for a long time and the service is good as well.

    I use joyent/textdrive (, there hosting is awesome cant fault it in anyway, the only time it goes down is when I have broken it myself.

    They give you ssh access to the server which sometimes is incredibly handy to have, you get a lot of other things that you may not want however like svn repos, cron jobs, there control panel is webmin, maybe ugly but incredibly powerful, also they have phpmyadmin pre-installed for your use on each of there servers too.

    I really cant fault them in anyway.

    For a good shared host check out and if you want to go with a VPS i recommend

    I’m on site 5 and I love them too!!! After running on bluehost and dreamhost – now it’s working nearly everything !


  15. I agree about godaddy – horrible company. i’ve never come across another provider that were so oppressive.
