Shared Hosting Recommendations?

I've spent a lot of time figuring out who the reputable VPS sellers are, but I now find my days of shared hosting returning for a project. My only experience with shared hosting was with Hostagator when I started in 2011. I know BuyVM has a shared hosting product that I'll purchase. But who else here has something good? Resources and services etc.


  • I would always go for buyshared, service is really great.

    There are a lot of providers, probably way more than vps providers.

  • These guys are the best Superb Internet First class support and solid service. I've had an account there for almost 10 years now. Nice for things that I don't want to fiddle with and just want to keep running - also, their email server is solid.

    Obviously it's buyshared or me ;)

    I'm more expensive though. Overselling is required to compete on shared, I'm committed to not doing it, at the expense of growth. We'll see how it plays out.

  • I recommend Dreamhost. (I should get an affiliate link from them.)

    Anything targeting the LAMP stack works without problem. They have some support for Python and Ruby on Rails web apps, but I haven't tested that out yet. The Python support looks to be pretty rudimentary.

    MySQL works fine. I don't have anything that gets hit hardcore, but the servers always seem responsive.

    Email works fine for non-critical, light duty stuff, but they have had some pretty severe email outages in the past.

    If you need better Python or Ruby support, I don't have any recommendations. I haven't deployed a lot web apps written in those languages.

    I don't like the idea of customers, customers, customers, customers being able to put stuff on my servers :)

    Majority of shared hosting companies are do oversell with everything unlimited, the customer is not aware that hard drives and network port has restriction, as it will be impossible to use 50TB of storage and 5000TB of bandwidth per month on 1Gbps shared network port.

  • hostdarehostdare Member, Patron Provider

    Not really even limited specs are oversold to helll !! This is why we do not like to oversell like them and our current customers can testify that .

    ExtraVM (@MikeA) has a current promotion on for $12/year

    I have been using InMotion Hosting as a shared hosting provider for one year with great support and service. My focus is primarily email, which has been very good, but not perfect.

    I DO NOT recommend any EIG-owned shared hosting companies. There are many of them, and they all have terrible service in common. Despite having many brand names, EIG is consolidating all of their brands under one common operation. EIG brands include HostGator, Arvixe, A Small Orange, and many more. My experiences with them have been universally bad, very bad indeed.
