Consider Before Selecting a Hosting Provider

by anarojasblogger In reply to How to choose the best we ...

You shouldn't pick a host based on a free trial. You'll get a free 30 days, or 90 days, or whatever you get, and then find yourself paying for a bad deal for much longer.

There are two types of hosting you care about right now. With shared hosting, you upload your files to the server, and they just run, so it's simple and usually cheap -- but you have no control over the server, which can be a big problem. It usually limits you to PHP only, you can't have long-running or recurring processes (which many web applications require)... it's not a good option.
The second type is a VPS. A VPS is essentially owning your own server on their premises: you have your own operating system there and you can do whatever you like to it, run whatever you want, run long-running processes, schedule tasks, use whatever languages you feel like. This is what you want, and you can get it for as little as US$5/month. The downside is that it's a bit more complex because you have to actually install the software, configure the server, etc yourself. But it's not as daunting as it seems and there are plenty of guides to help you out.

The most popular VPS provider around here is Digital Ocean. For US$5/month you get a VPS with 512 MB of memory, 1 processor, 20 GB on the disk, and 1,000 GB of bandwidth. They have nice dashboards that let you get up and running with popular server configurations quickly, which is the main reason I'd recommend them for you. If you find that your application(s) are popular and need more resources you can bump up to $10 or $20 plans, or buy multiple $5 plans and divide your users across them.

Bluehost or Arvixe

by paul.e.swanson In reply to How to choose the best we ...

The best web hosting providers in the UK according to recent reviews ( are InMotionHosting, Arvixe, JustHost, BlueHost, GreenGeeks, WebHostingPad, Hostgator, DreamHost, GoDaddy and HostMonster. I personally use Bluehost on one of my sites and their customer service was great. I've recently started a blog on a domain and I've figured I should try Arvixe to see how the overall experience compared to my current subscription with Bluehost. As such, the results are: . To sum it up, even though Arvixe offers a free domain upon registration, Bluehost's customer service and reliability as a big player makes it a more worthwhile choice. I'm going to try Inmotionhosting as well because I've been hearing a lot of positive reviews about it.
