What's the best web hosting platform?
We've been using Webfaction and have had several problems recently. We are thinking of moving to Amazon Web Services (AWS) and curious what experience others have had with them or with another platform. Thanks.
Deciding among lots of cloud service providers is a serious business choice. Here a detailed analysis of the top three cloud platforms: Google, Azure, and AWS with a comparison chart and additional insights for building a strong case for cloud migration: http://bit.ly/2nfGzJ
Hello Mary, we are a company with 400+ in house IT professionals and a portfolio of 5,000+ projects. We have been using AWS without any issue from the past 6 years now.
Hope this will help you :)
Like most questions on here, it depends! In this case, depends on your tech stack and the size of your app and use case.
If you have a small blog, there's no reason to move beyond wordpress and shared hosting on bluehost or hostgator.
wpengine is my favorite host for growing wordpress websites, as $35/mo gets you up to 25k visits/mo.
If you have a static non-wordpress website, then a cheap VPS server on bluehost or a small digitalocean droplet should suffice.
Lastly, if you have a more complex, dynamic web app or backend API, then a cloud-based host that automatically scales up like google app engine or AWS like you mentioned would start to make sense.
Web hosting is hosting your website, blog or any other article that are useful for others to insert into the internet. So shared hosting is helpful for faster-hosting services. Shared hosting is a cheap and a very simple method. For hosting everyone is using this method. Shared web hosting is providing a very good platform for hosting websites to the internet. This is done by with the help of a single server.
If you want to get the services of web hosting in India, first it is important to check different company’s profiles on the internet. I have personally uses hosting services of Bigrock and Bluehost India based on good reviews and recommendation and had very good experience with them. They have several offers through their coupans also and cost is also reasonable.
i've tried a lot of companies and i found one of them which is the best
in its space, quality and the price it's name is justhost
and there are coupons for discount which is developed in this site
From my personal experience i would say http://www.xnynz.com/ is doing good in both hosting and domain registration..Here they are providing hosting in both windows and Linux at low cost with several free extras.They also provides good service and customer support. Regarding more information visit this site..
We've been very happy with Hostmonster.com
for higher end solutions, FireHost is also a good solution.
We recently moved to HubSpot. I definitely recommend you check them out.
They are really a marketing company that really provides fantastic education along with the best customer support I have ever experienced.
There is no absolute "best" hosting platform. It all depends on the requirements for your application. Some questions to consider:
- What stack are you using for your application? Are you LAMP, Rails, Django, Play Framework, PHP, Asp.net? Different hosting platforms have different support.
- How much control do you want to have over all the infrastructure? Platforms like AWS, Rackspace or Voxel gives you complete control, whereas Heroku controls everything for you. Other platforms span the range of control.
- How easy should it be? If I drop you at a linux prompt, can you install nginx on fedora without a problem, or would you prefer a directory where you can FTP php and have it "just work".
- Enterprise support? Do you want to have someone to email or call when things break (and they will)?
- Load and demand. Are you in need of massive scaling now or in the near future, or can your website or web application be happy in a shared hosting environment?
I personally use Heroku or AWS depending on the application requirements, and I don't have many complaints. Your experience will vary. If you share some of your requirements, you'll get a better answer.
For Windows hosting I can recommend aspwebhosting.com. Their website is a little underwhelming but the reliability and stability of their service is outstanding.
this depends on what you want to host.
generally I tend to do-it myself :)
tell me more about your requirements and I'll get back to you.
Good Afternoon Mary,
I was introduced by a colleague that reads the MosaicHub that reads the post/articles daily. I saw your recent post and perhaps you've already made the jump to AWS or Rackspace, but my company Profitbricks has some unique technology that would certainly help MosaicHub out and is half of the cost of Amazon and Rackspace. I can tell you that we focus on Vertical Scaling, Network Flexibility, and Security in the Cloud. We have a unique Virtual Data Center where you can literally drag and drop servers, add firewalls, etc and have your page running in 10 minutes. I would love to speak to you a bit more as I would love for you or your IT team to TEST us out.
I personally like HostGator. They have great customer service and you pay one price and can host unlimited sites.
Wow, so many great responses to this question. Thanks for sharing all of these great resources.
Hi MAB! I love HostGator for my small business website. They have awesome customer service and are cheap. Great combination. Justin
As far as I know Rackspace (http://www.rackspace.com/) provide better and cheaper cloud services compared to AWS. You can consider also KickAss VPS http://www.kickassvps.com/ or other smaller clouds.
Hi Mary-Alice. It really depends on your website needs. Tell me what you need and I would he happy to make a recommendation for you!
