I’ve been a long time user of GoDaddy for my domains, mostly because I’ve never found a better domain host for both price and services offered. I know there are other hosts out there and I know there are also quite a few that are cheaper and have decent management tools but there is a level of trust that I’ve not been able to find. Now this isn’t to say I fully trust GoDaddy, but they are a bigger company so the level of trust is higher than a company i’ve never heard of.
Recently I switched to Arvixe web hosting on a suggestion from a random stranger and I have to say that so far the decision has been very rewarding. With this post I’m going to go into detail the advantages that Arvixe web hosting has provided me and why if you are looking for a new web host for ASP.NET 4.0 or WordPress hosting you should consider Arvixe.
Recently I desired to have support for ASP.NET 4.0 in my web hosting. Since I currently had an unlimited shared Windows hosting plan with GoDaddy I had hoped that the transition would be easy. So, I looked into what they were offered in the way of hosting that supported .NET 4.0. From my search the only offering they had was a Windows Grid hosting plan which was identical to my current plan except it was hosted across multiple servers instead of one shared server. I thought that this would be great, clustered hosting and support for .NET 4.0, unfortunately I was wrong.
Recently I was struggling with something in WordPress, any time I would try and make a change to a plug in or try and upgrade it would prompt me for a FTP Login. This was frustrating me as this blog was the only one I’ve set up so far that was giving me these problems. So it became my personal quest to try and find a fix for it
