How reliable is it? If I wanted to get my hosting from someone on fiverr, What could I expect?
you get what u pay for.
I suggest you buy hosting from somewhere like hostgator.
Don't expect much. Just read the feedback and decide for yourself.
Yeah I would have my doubts. Unless he bought a multi domain plan, and is just planning on putting you on it. That could easily get over loaded. You are much better off with your own.
for 4 or 7 bucks you can get hosting on HG instead. (per month) that'd be my suggestion
I'd think twice. You can get real hosting for like $8/mo with dreamhost. If you are scared that they'll shut your account for black hat actions, you can assume your $5 fiverr friends will run away too
I ask because the site is small and 5 dollars for a year would be awesome. i havn't found many with actual feedback though
i have bought someone gig (cpanel hosting for 1 year) for my personal blog, works fine!
i wouldn't want to try it.. go for reputable hosting company to save yourself some headache when shit falls
If you have some cash to spend i would give it a try,
dont forget to read feadbacks
ok one more question, this guy says "Once you input my DNS servers (all you got to do is copy and paste)" on his post but then there is another guys that says "Transferring your site from one host to another takes a lot of time, and there are a lot of little things you need to take care or your site won't work."
so which is it? if I just have a small wp blog isn't it as simple as just changing th dns servers to the new one?
i used to give hosting out on fiverr, but for 5 a month.
its very easy i did that before
Well, one can get reseller hosting for just around 18 bucks per month and you can share it with 50 guys - each one getting a cpanel but can host only one domain. This is what they offer. You too can start that as a business on fiverr.
I tried one of those before, 4 bucks for a year. It was great. The problem was actually that. The guy probably bought a reseller package somewhere and sell it in pieces. In my case it was great cos not so many customers were in there.
But then the site was just disappear, my guess was that his year was up and he didn't intend to renew his reseller package anymore.
You see, hosting is not just about the spec and price, you want to go with companies thats been there awhile.
If it is a small site like you said you might as well try byethost or place like that. I doubt 5 bucks a year will make much of a different to free. At least they've been around for sometime
bythhost looks good I think I will give that a shot. How does it work for sties that are already up though? Do I just make a wp back up and upload it via ftp? I bought this site off flippa 6 months ago and now I have to move it to a new host but it's my first site. He didn't send me any site files just pushed the domain and changed the wp admin info for me so I'm not sure if I need site files or what.
Yep, you need the wp files including tamplate, plugins etc thats not came with standard wp installtion. You'll also need the database files, downloadit from phpmyadmin.
After those are set, then you change the dns pointing to the new host dns.
Beware though, byethost ftp kindda suck
Seriously, just go with someone semi-reliable like Hostgator. Don't put your site on some crap host you have no control over, no support and can vanish at any time.
It pays to be frugal with your spending, but don't make cuts when it comes to key business essentials, like web hosting. It's like 5 bucks a month and will save you headaches in the long run.
If you go with Hostgator, they will transfer your site for you, which is handy. So will most other decent hosts. Doing it yourself for the first time may cause issues. I think they need cpanel details, not sure if just WP login will do it (I may be wrong though).
Never buy hosting from a unknown/random person when that person decides to quit cause he isn't profiting bye bye to all those sites.
