    Cheap is always cheap in everything. Go to good hosting always like siteground or hostgator.

    I recently shifted my site to Siteground hosting. Everyone is saying good things about it and it is also WordPress recommended hosting.

    I have good experiences with stablehost and hostmantis. Hostmantis on shared pro plan comes with 6gb of ram and its quite fast. The reseller is even more powerful. Hope that helps. Not affiliated with none of them.

    I got so pissed off with webhosts messing about and saying my websites needed upgrading I thought I won't bother using them. Fed up with lousy tech support, websites going down, poor speed performance.
    What did I do, I host my websites myself.
    I have a quad core PC, fast reliable internet connection, and I get a google pagespeed score of 100 for a php website.

    Thats good to know NO-CLUE_SEO. When you get some free time maybe you can start the thread explaining what exactly needs to be done to make your own small hosting server at home? I would definitely be interested in the process.

    I read up on using Xampp for Windows. It's dead simple.

    I use namecheap for domain purchasing, and they have a dynamic DNS client that keeps the domain name updated with the IP address as most home connections use dynamic ip addressing.

    Just point the domain address to use the dynamic client.
    I then use Xampp to host, and host several websites on a quad core PC.

    It's so quick, no shared crap from other websites, no crappy tech support, no vps remote.

    I seriously get a google page speed score of 96 to 100.

    I'm not using WordPress at the moment as I write the php code instead.

    If your fed up with crappy webhosts do it, you won't regret it.

    Xampp has its own SQL, Apache and phpadmin interfaces, it's great.

    Afaik xampp is not really meant for production. Have you properly tested your server? If not, problems are waiting to happen anytime. It is dead simple to just use linux and install apache and mysql on it.

    My two cents. ;)

    Edit: the whole point of replying to your comment is to make sure that others don't do what you did there. No, xampp and wamp are not production servers. Don't do what op did. ;)

    I only use their domain names, their customer service is going downhill. They use to be helpful and proactive, now they are just lazy. Most likely they are getting shit payments.

    Will check thanks, I do regular backups and test the security. In the documents it does say it's now ok to use as a regular webserver for internet use. After 6 months no problems so far.
