StableHost is a popular name among web hosting companies that offer high-quality web hosting at a budget. While not being as cheap as some of the horrible companies that tend to offer unlimited everything for as low as $1 a month, StableHost still manages to remain quite budget friendly, with their basic plan starting at only $3.95 per month.
Despite not being expensive, they manage to offer tremendous customer support and maintain high-end, fast servers with a 99.9% uptime SLA. As I’m happy with MDDHosting since the middle of 2011, I didn’t transfer TechTage to StableHost to try them out. Instead, I shifted one of my other sites to StableHost last year to try them out. In this review, I’ll note down specifically what I loved and hated about StableHost during my time as a customer, from a neutral, non-biased perspective.
After Squidix, I decided to review A Small Orange. A Small Orange, or ASO in short, is actually a pretty old company, originally founded way back in 2004. They are well known in the web hosting industry as a homegrown hosting company. They are also known for their flexible plans, efficient tech support and having an overall personal relationship with their customers. Let’s find out how great A Small Orange’s shared hosting plans are, in reality.
At the first look, WhoIsHostingThis.com might look like a nice little ‘free’ online tool to find out which web host a particular site resides on. However, if you look closely enough, you’ll soon find out that there’s another (primary) motto behind operating the site apart from the apparent one (i.e. establishing themselves as the #1 online tool for finding out a site’s web host, nameservers etc.). Inspect a bit further down the line, and you’ll be surprised seeing what’ll scream “shady” to any experienced SEO enthusiast.
MaxCDN, as the name suggests, is a content delivery network. MaxCDN is one of the most preferred affordable CDN providers for WordPress sites. It speeds up your site, and reduces your server load, for an affordable price. Setting up MaxCDN for WordPress blogs using W3 Total Cache is straightforward and easy. I’m using MaxCDN on TechTage since the beginning of 2013. Here’s why I’m more than impressed with its performance and features.
What was your mental state just before you started a blog? umm… let me guess, you probably were excited! It’s not just you, most bloggers who are new in the field without much past experience get excited ahead of setting up their first blog. For those using a paid web hosting service, the result likely was a hurry in choosing the company to host their first blog with. Now, the Internet is so filled with fake ‘Top 10 Web Hosts’ sites (which are basically affiliate sites) that successfully convince you into purchasing a relatively ‘cheap and best’ web hosting plan from a shoddy company which gets you lots of troubles afterwards. In this article, I’ll discuss about some common mistakes beginners make when it comes to choosing a web host.
