Should we move HA back to Godaddy webhosting?

Post by Winston »

Should we migrate off Bluehost? Since migrating to Bluehost, our Alexa ranking and Google ranking seem to have dropped. It was far higher on Godaddy. Yet Bluehost is ranked better than Godaddy. Go figure. I don't know if the webhost or VPS had anything to do with it. As my friend Alex said, "correlation is not always proof of causation".

Which webhost do you all like best? What do you all think of this webhost?

They have a good reputation and have managed hosting so you don't need to maintain your VPS. However, I was thinking of moving back to shared hosting, since VPS seems unnecessary and is only extra cost and trouble. Shared hosting nowadays can handle a lot of traffic, more than what we get, so it should be sufficient and plus I won't have to manage the server or try to figure it out.

Bluehost is owned by EIG who have a awful reputation for support and running brands they bought into the ground. You can start with any reliable Shared Hosting. If you see your site traffic increasing, then you think to upgrade your account to VPS then Dedicated Server. Because Shared Hosting has limited features like max usage of server CPU and RAM, number of MySQL connection and HTTP access.. etc. I doubt this website actually needs a VPS with reliable Shared hosting acct. If you went with VPS you would need min 4 GBs of guaranteed RAM.

Which webhost do you recommend PAG? Which one do you use?

Well shared hosting nowadays has pro version or prime version which can handle a lot of traffic. And costs much less too. So i feel I'm wasting money on VPS which cost 50 bucks a month since i had to upgrade the RAM and CPU to prevent any further crashes and overloads. There seems to be no benefit to VPS. When i was on GoDaddy shared hosting i was doing fine. Plus GoDaddy seems to have faster servers if you test them on pingdome.

Yeah i heard Bluehost went bad when they got owned by EIG. I got deceived by Bluehost when i saw their commercials on YouTube. They made it sound like they were the most amazing thing and ahead of the curve and super committed to quality and that they designed their own servers so they know everything about it. Etc.

You also said long ago that VPS sucks remember? Now you're saying its ok?

Bluehost customer service is ok. But the support staff dont know a lot of things and their server and cpanel has bugs. And they always pass the blame just like phpbb developers do. They always blame phpbb every time something goes wrong with the forum and phpbb developers always blame Bluehost. So i get tossed around like a ping pong ball. I hate that.

Is it better to move back to GoDaddy shared hosting or to Bluehost shared hosting? Both have good features and can handle a lot of traffic they told me. But GoDaddy seems to have faster servers.

Currently, for my networking sites, I'm using https://www.ethernetservers.com/managed-vps just because shared hosting doesn't allow faceted search. Plus it's a pretty good deal. Only $25/mo for a fully managed VPS with off-site daily backups. They've been in business over 8 years and have a pretty good reputation on webhostingtalk.com Haven't had any problems yet.

VPS performance is dependent on who you share a server with, unlike a ded server. But hardware is cheaper than it was 3 years ago. Bluehost is still overloading its servers to make more money.

Wow your webhost has a good deal PAG. Their VPS managed hosting is a lot cheaper than Bluehost. How are they able to outprice Bluehost? I thought Bluehost was the leader, how can smaller webhosts have better deals?

What is a faceted search?

Does your webhost have a service where a professional will move an entire website over for a fee?

Easy, lower overhead. You don't have to pay some CEO/management $2 million a year!

You'll see on the new happierabroad :)

I believe it's free

Why wouldn't you just do it yourself? Why would you want someone to do it for you?

Because it's a lot of trouble. Especially the database. Exporting big databases often results in crashes and time outs. Also I don't know how to move email inboxes from one account to another webhost. That is way too complicated and not user friendly at all.

How do they get any customers without any advertising budget? They're not gonna move my website for free. Come on. Where on their site does it say they will move your site for free?

What kind of new HA site are you building? How will it be any different than this one? What will it offer? More of your guided tours and romance tours by random people with no track record? lol
