    Hi guys,

    I want to run a survey of the top Web Hosting company in this forum.

    Please only respond if you are actually using that web host at the moment. Don't add anything to this thread that you don't currently use.

    I'll start it off:

    I use Siteground and A2Hosting

    I am currently using WPX Hosting and one of the best there is but it comes at a premium price so be prepared but at the end of the day you will feel relieved that your sites are hosted by a company that is only getting better with time :)

    I use namecheap for most sites, but I also use offshore-servers for a couple. Both are great.

    I use SiteGround, which I run all my websites on (~10)
    I'm guessing people who have multiple hosting accounts are doing so for PBNs? Or are there other reasons for having multiple?

    Namecheap VPS and Dedicated Servers for us. They are the best value and performance I've come across in the past 5 years. During a crisis, their support can be shit at times and all their operators lag with responses. It's always the old "please allow me 5-7 minutes to confirm your details". That's the only thing that annoys the fuck out of me. But apart from that, they are the best value for money and performance (at the moment).

    That seems a pretty good reason. Never had a problem with SiteGround so not really thought to do this before

    My vote goes for WPX because they have an exceptional customer service, refreshingly transparent pricing structure, server performance matching that of significantly more expensive providers.

    Selfconfigured cloud. I pretty much outperform 99.9% of the competitors in my country.

    The best part which makes me chuckle every time, total costs: (so hosting and all plugins I use for optimizing)

    $5 a month hahaha
