Hosting services


I had many good years with InMotion Hosting, but---as their support started to degrade---i'm in the middle of a move to Bluehost. Unfortunately, they also have issues.

Any relevant wisdom??

I'm sorry to hear ill of Inmotion Hosting. I worked there for a short time some years ago and quite enjoyed my experience and the people.

I use GoDaddy. I've found their technical support to be superb. It's the primary thing that has kept me with them.

I've also heard good things about Digital Ocean. I have no personal experience with them, but their online documentation is outstanding.

Welcome back to LQ.
please remember that this is a global forum.
Which country are you in and where do you desire your servers to be located? I think that's important information, required to give you a good answer.

I also use GoDaddy. And, as ondoho mentioned, since LQ is a global forum, sometimes the country information concerning the server, and/or the individual asking the question, is important

With the idea of global needs, one of the benefits of GoDaddy, is that their website is available in the language of the country that the developer is in. In my case the country is Taiwan and the GoDaddy website is available in the Chinese (Traditional) language. And, in the case of GoDaddy, I can get technical support on Taiwan if needed.

GoDaddy are in my "not even with a 26 foot barge pole" category. (The GoDaddy Wikipedia article contains some of the reasons.)

The best hosting company I've encountered for support is NetHosted, but whether or not that's a useful recommendation would depend on information you've not provided.

I'm in Annapolis, USA. I don't care where the servers are---as long as everything works

OK. The Linux podcasts I currently listen to run ads for digitalocean and Linode, so you might want to check that out.
Price-wise, in the area I live, netcup.eu seems worthy.
Can't speak to customer support for any of these.
