    My webhost is becoming miserably slow. I think it's time I made a change. I'm thrilled when I visit some websites and the page loads almost immediately, without the usual lag we see on many websites.

    Please I need suggestions on very fast and affordable hosting. Thanks

    OVH but support sucks, Linode is a good option too.

    I just checked out OVH. Server specs for VPS looks good, but at those prices, are they real?

    I just need a very fast web host for my Woocommerce site. I really don't know if VPS or Cloud would be better. Any suggestions will be appreciated

    Ovh is quite strict. Bought a domain from them, was required to show documents

    It took a looong time (1 or 2 or so weeks) too.

    If you can afford $5 a month then go for DigitalOcean. If you can afford around $10 go for Cloudways their Wordpress hosting is very optimized and they have a boat load of other development features.

    If you need VPS, Vultr is better than others for me and price less than DigitalOcean. Also, you can apply a discount when you do your first payment to double your money, max $100 to double.

    It costs only $10/mo.​

    I checks them out, even had a chat with a support person. They have only WordPress hosting, and when I checked the speed of the sites on their customer review page, the stats were very poor. I used Google Speed Insights.

    The VPS Hybrid sounds inviting, but it is a fancy name for shared hosting, isn't it? Any personal experience with this hosting plan? The VPS hosting begins at 99$ per month. I don't like that price. Lol :)

    OVH is pretty good. Had several servers from them. Pretty cheap when it comes to DDoS protection

    I checked them out before. But I am a bit confused on which plan to choose. Which would you recommend from your experience using their servers?

    I think that depends on what group you targeting. I had minecraft servers so RAM was pretty important to me aswell as internet connection speed. If you looking for a web-based server only, I would recommend SoYouStart which is owned by OVH too. Those servers are fine to get a good amount of requests in a minute. If you just want to test around abit you can go to kimsufi which is owned by OVH aswell and if you notice your website goes well, switch to another better server from OVH but you should use cloudflare for any website even if it’s only the free plan.

    Yeah. I already use Cloudflare. I'll check out the SoYouStart. Thanks for the suggestion. Will be back

    You’re welcome buddy. If you need help with something or more informations let me know. Had over 50 dedicated/vps from OVH. They are cheap but support sucks. Anyway barely had to use their support so I didn’t care.

    If your traffic is from Europe go with hetzner cloud the best when it comes to price/performance but the servers only available in 2 locations
    (Germany & Finland) or go with Vultr their new servers (High Frequency Compute) are insanely fast and very cheap .
