    I'm looking for a good hosting company. Hostgator is very slow and annoying

    Digital ocean, aws, linode. They never failed me.
    For testing I use Hyonix. Other than a few minutes of downtime per month, they are pretty good too.

    hawkhost for cheap monthly shared. 3.75 a month with their reoccurring coupon applied. Lightspeed servers and stuff like ssl is just easy.

    Can't recommend Namecheap. Beside all the hassle I had to go through they had downtimes sometimes.

    Can't recommend Bluehost either. They CLOSED my account without warning, didn't even give me access to back ups. Stay away from them. They didn't even refund me the remaining time.

    Can't recommend Abelohost. They didn't only close my account without warning or reason, they also closed my friends accounts. At least they gave us access to back ups tho. They said they ignore DMCA complaints, but not true.

    Can't recommend Sharkservers. Lots of downtimes. Lately I heard they were scamming lots of people (check some threads on here). They also said they ignore DMCA complaints, but since they are based in the UK it can't be true.


    I use Hostnine since 4 years. Didn't really have lots of problems.

    Siteground is also pretty good, but sometimes the cPanel is not working well for me. For example the "Lets Encrypt" function in the cPanel. It got some bugs for me. I contacted the support and they told me they can't fix it and I have to upgrade to a $30/month plan in order to make it work.

    I also heard lots of good things about Digital Ocean, but never used them myself.

    Make sure you have good service 24/7 and uptime over 99%. Hosting is key when your site sells any service or product. Godaddy is expensive but customer support is good.

    I've always used AWS and Google Cloud to host my sites. First one year is free in AWS and GCP gives you a forever free option which is definitely good enough for small sites. Plus, I love the flexibility that you have - expand the server to handle sudden bursts of traffic, switch it off when not needed, etc. Only downside is that you need to know a bit of Linux to get your way around the server (you don't get a cPanel), but that's something you can always Google and find out.
