Going to pre-alpha stage with my little project https://prohostia.com . Asking you, my friend, to help and do a simple test. On new signups there is free 30 days trial for first website. Please kindly signup and play with it a bit.
After test (30 days) I will reset database and all your data will be safely erased. Feedback can be provided via PM or publicly if something really bad happen (for the drama).
Just some feedback after seeing your page: When reading the first part about Managed WP Hosting and also below with plan details, as a customer I would definitely like/expect to read (Daily) Backups. Instead Backups/Snapshots is only mentioned further down below among features. I'd strongly advise to add it to plan details and also in the very first part of the page If I go for MANAGED, I expect to read this.
I might have already dodged your site after not reading it in the hero/first part. I know you mentioned it further down below, but the first impression made me wonder "Managed..but no backups?".
Edit: Also check your FAQs:
Who is WordPress99
Good eye! That's came from localhost :-/ . Damn, your feedback is pure gold.
Happy to help!
I'll see if I can find some more stuff later
I might sign up later to try the wp toolkit. As a fellow wp user, I haven't tried Plesk WP Toolkit yet. Or are you using Softaculous? Haven't read into detail about that one yet.
No, custom made mumbo jumbo with python and shell. Thank you for your time!
Ah in that case, I'll likely sign up to give it a try these days Always curious to try wp toolkits out :P
@LTniger I saw you added Backups in the first part of the page, but what I meant was also adding it to the plan cards/details (10GB Plan, 20GB Plan etc..).
my time has come
Good point. Company details will add later, as this is pre-alpha stage.
icons look weird in a small monitor (1366x768)
Ok, that's actual serious bug. Thank you!
Tried to signup, Last name need to be 3 letters, Address need to be filled properly. I think lot of friction for signup will eventually leads to abandoning.
Where is dedicated ipv6 address?
Kinsta, wpengine and other do ipv6? Hm...
Also I suggest an alternate domain for free subdomains, anyone can easily get your domain blacklisted.
Well, it is .net , .com is for the system and website. It is enough.
So far, received couple feedbacks. People, your are really good at testing! Keep it going. It is free
Ok lads, few more people signed up. Maybe few more?
Folks, please provide some feedback:
I haven't signed up but I don't see SSH and
wp-climentioned on the features page. These are important features (imo). Different environments (prod-staging-dev)? Different installs are isolated from each other?
@LTniger do you also offer wordpress desgin services for themes?
Don't try to compete with Kinsta or WpEngine. You're trying to hard to be a direct competitor.
Find a smaller niche within that niche and focus on that audience. Also, branding has improved since we last talked but I would make the overall look and feel a bit more modern and simplistic and stick away from that "gameserver-esque" feel.
No. But it is a venue for future.
These are advanced features which are desired from major of my imagined clientele. Good idea, non-the-less.
My strategy is to copy and improve. Kinsta, wpengine, siteground are multi million dollar corps. Their stack is good, only need improvements.
i would be an alphatester of the first hour
By the way, anyone would like to see more locations?
I am getting spaceweb.eu vibes...
What is that?
The website design somehow reminded me of an shared hosting provider (not operating anymore), just off topic.
Hope you will succeed, I am going to sign up and give some feedback 👍🏼
