Would you recommend hostgator for its server speed?
I need to transfer some of my domains
They are good host but I don't think they are particularly fast. How many domains you got and what volume of traffic?
I've used many different web hosts, and HostGator is actually okay when it comes to server speed (not blazingly fast, but decent enough). The site I have on HostGator's Hatchling plan loads in 1.37 seconds and has a homepage size of 1.1mb. Even though I haven't had any recent issues with HostGator, I would recommend moving your domains over to HostWinds as they're cheaper and offer much faster server speeds based on a few tests I ran using a different website.
Hostwinds are good as well I agree.
A2 hosting are also very fast - especially with SSD plans.
for my experience with hostgator, I don't recommend it, as it have much security limitations, also they will not be friendly of you get much resources
I tried siteground it's very fast, and it have a huge discounts, and then offers for free upgrade, you can try it, however it's also have much limitations related to performance, now I'm using namecheap, it's not really cheap but stable with a very good support staff
thank you for your kind replies.
just checked host winds and looks good, i'm interested in shared + advanced which means i got 4 websites right? 4 different domains i can transfer or it is 1 domain + subdomains etc...
HostWinds is actually here on BHW and you can view their thread in the link below.
Their profile can be viewed through this link.
I'd rather use DigitalOcean for price and speed.
I personally wouldn't. I've always found them slow. In my opinion, the best thing to do is a get a droplet from Digital Ocean. You'll have to install a lamp server but this can be done in one click. In addition, you can also one click install a WordPress site during setup. The downside is there is a bit of a learning curve if you aren't familiar with running a server, but when I finally decided to just tackle it I found it much easier than I thought it would be.
