    Hi all,

    I’ve finally had enough with Tsohost (SlowHost would be more apt) after hanging in from the old Compila days so I’m looking for recommendations on who I could switch too.

    I currently have about 10 parked domain names and 2 websites, each running Wordpress and Woocommerce. Traffic is currently very light. I don’t have a strict budget so am open to various options. I’m looking for good value rather than the cheapest.

    Any thoughts folks?

    Thanks,
    ec84

    I'm slowly moving more and more of my stuff to GURU - https://www.guru.co.uk/

    Support (when required) has been excellent and not had any problems since initial set up.

    One nice feature (not sure if just a gimic or if all hosts do it) is the fact if you have got multiple sites in a package you can give particular ones boosts of extra resources if required.

    I can recommend SiteGround - https://www.siteground.com/

    Reliable service that supports both WordPress and Woocommerce platforms. They run backups daily so you never loose any data even if your own backups fail - which can happen every now and then. Check them out!

    I hope this helps.

    SiteGround is a good choice.

    There are also smaller hosting companies on this forum worth looking at.

    I went with Siteground after choosing a rubbish hoster initially. Really improved my website rating/speed.

    Kinsta is where I put most Wordpress/Woocommerce sites.

    Their support is nothing short of superb. Running on Google Cloud infrastructure with underlying CDN options, it’s proven to be blazingly fast and stable over the last year or so.

    Their control panel is also both comprehensive and idiot-proof

    Thank you all - all 3 you’ve recommended look far superior to Tsohost so it should be easier than I thought to find one one decent and switch!

    Siteground is a good budget option with some useful features. Kinsta, obviously, if you have more money to play with.

    20i also worth a look.

    Cyber Host Pro have come a ridiculous long way in the last few years. Their servers are incredibly fast even on the lower plans

    Depends on your technical knowledge and what you are after, personally i am moving all my stuff directly to AWS.

    You're absolutely right, however for things like basic blogging or information sites that have low traffic wouldn't make sense being on something such as AWS

    Very easy to misconfigure AWS and leave it extremely vulnerable if you are not fully up on how it all works and what all the options are.

    Thanks for the extra replies.

    I’m a bit of an oddball in that I don’t use Amazon or any of their products so AWS isn’t an option.
