So, you’re looking for hosting , and you don’t want to get ripped off. You’ve probably already read a bunch of forum posts, hosting review sites, and top 10 lists. And you probably noticed most of them didn’t seem very trustworthy.Unfortunately, many of the reviews out there are fake, written by hosting company employees, either to brag about themselves, or to trash their competitors.
I decided to do my own research by trying out a couple of options, and came across Hostox who had great reviews on trustpilot. I build some websites and tend to use WordPress for the ease of use of their content management system.
If you’re running a modern, dynamic website, you need a server with fast database access. Every time a visitor loads a page on your site, your server has to make dozens of database requests. If your database is slow, your site will be, too.
You really have two options when it comes to hosting, Shared Web Hosting for a handful websites, or Managed VPS Hosting for a larger pool of clients and flexibility, here’s a brief overview of both from Hostox.
Managed cPanel Web Hosting
Shared Web Hosting powered by cPanel and backed by Quality Support. Included is a free migration to get you settled in!
This starts at just £4.99, for one website; which includes unlimited email accounts, unlimited databases
One feature I really like is the nightly backups – something not provided by others on such a basic package. Check out the packages and full feature lists here .
Managed SSD virtual servers
All of Hostox‘ VPS packages come Fully Managed & Maintained by them! No knowledge of Linux or command line is required, allow them to take care of the hard part whilst you focus on what matters – Your Business & making websites.
Xen & SSD!
Powered by Xen technology all of their virtual private servers are fully isolated from other users meaning that no one else will effect the daily running of your server, not to mention the added bonus of SSD hard drives providing you much better speeds overall.
FREE cPanel & WHM
A key plus for me is that their SSD Virtual servers come pre-loaded with cPanel & WHM ready for you to get setup straight away! This paired with the free migration is a real winner!
