I Need a Better Host -- Any Suggestions?


I've been using windows provider for what seems like an eternity, and I've pretty much had it with their craptacular servers and their uneducated support staff. It's time for me to move on.

At least once a month my server will go down completely for a matter of hours. I think that once it was a scheduled outage, but usually it is just some mystery that they never seem to explain. On top of that regularly occurring outage, I frequently have problems accessing MsSQL, which inevitably results in my site generating 500 errors.

I've complained until I'm blue in the face, but conversations with support usually result in me doing all of the work to check things out while they just post still checking messages to me every 5 minutes and then say they are opening a ticket with a higher level of support. That higher level of support typically comes back to me the next day with an explanation that in no way relates to my problem, making it obvious that they do not know what they are talking about.

So, I've had it. I need a new home for my sites. Here's the deal...

- Please just recommending windows shared hosting. I'm not at a dedicated level or VPS.

- I don't mind paying as long as I get what I'm paying for. But, I want good service, not a bargain basement price.

- I need a company that can transfer my sites for me, as I do not have time to. But more importantly, to do it correctly.

- [optional] I have searched on google and I get interested with asphostportal.com, any body have experience with them?

Thanks for your advice

Try Hostgator or Arvixe.
They provide Windows Shared hosting.

Best option is purchase a VPS and install required software. Now a days there is lot of tools are available or windows to install shared hosting softwares.

Those are both EIG owned. Do a bit of Googling as to what that means, you probably will want to reconsider.

This is not a good idea unless you know what you are doing, and even than incurs more costs and time investment. Really not needed unless you have a site that requires more resources than shared hosting will provide or some custom setup.

I am not too familiar with the Windows Shared hosting scene so don't have a recommendation.

Re: I Need a Better Host -- Any Suggestions?


I would personally just look at reviews for the many providers out there. Shared services are nearly always on a shared server, so if a company is overloading their servers to make a profit, you will have many issues. If a client is abusing their resources, you may also see a problem. With everyone offering unlimited resources, its fair to say that you would likely encounter issues at some point or another.

Depending on your budget, it may be best to just go into a small VPS and have at it. Many VPS providers limit resources to clients so that this cannot happen. Thus, providing you a better piece of mind. As I said, you should just look at reviews though.

You will get lots of hosting websites that can offer services at a reasonable price. A good cheap web host is a requirement for all websites and blogs, but it doesn't take to charge and give good support. If you are really looking for the best provider, i will suggest you to go with Znetlive. Their support is very efficient and fast, also server uptime is almost 100%.

They promise huge space and bandwidth because they know most customers don't use as nearly as they signed up with their hosting account. But if you really need an amount of space or bandwidth you thought you were entitled to, there might be a problem.

Re: I Need a Better Host -- Any Suggestions?


Best is pretty well defined, but human perspective and opinion is not. Every company has many properties that define its service. Some examples of those properties might be customer support, price, uptime, hardware, software, sales people, and engineers. There are a few very defined properties like price. But price is meaningless without the greater context of 'What am I getting for that price?'

So really, we're left with a large set of hard to quantify and compare properties that make up service companies.

Some Hosting providers are definitely better than others. Some are definitely worse. Most occupy a middle ground of being ok. The larger the company, the more opportunity for variance in experience. With web hosting companies, most people's experiences are either touch the technical side or human side of the company. The technical side of webhosting is quickly becoming commoditized. So that really leaves the human side to impact opinion of a company. Server Basket is the best https://www.serverbasket.com/ in India with 24/7 expert support.
