Great Service

Digital Ocean is a highly customisable cloud hosting service with reasonable rates. The only drawback for non-technical customers is you will need to configure your server VIA the command-line – the good thing is Digital Ocea... More n has easy to follow documentation that shows you how to do this among many other things. Less
Reliable Hosting Company

I switched to InterServer VPS web hosting the last 4 weeks ago. I got this hosting service at a very low price. I am really very happy because it doesn’t charge any cost on SSL certificates & daily backups. I also purchased W... More ordPress hosting from Domain Racer which provides me with automatic WordPress updates & many best services. Less

terrible hosting!

I have used Digital Ocean for more than 2 years and I regret it.
I started over the recommendation of our freelancer, but in 2 years, I always had a hard time, from setting up, to managing, to backup, and performance, everyt... More hing was very hard and confusing for me. And whenever I had a problem and opened a ticket, I only received automated responses and never heard from a real person answering my messages! In the end, one of my sites was hacked because of Digital Ocean and they didn't even bother to respond to me for anything at all!
I finally pulled the plug and changed to another hosting provider which I am happy with!
So, in short, if you are not a genius with IT, stay away from Digital Ocean. Or if you use, pray that you will not have any problems and will need technical support, because if you do, support will be nowhere to be found!
Stay away at all costs! You will regret it!

Digital media site and Blue Host

Blue Host is a journey and not a means to an end with web hosting html and word press. I am seeing the difference every day with html and css online.

Winner: InterServer

Bruno Mirchevski Hosting Expert

InterServer, Digital Ocean, and BlueHost all offer quite similar hosting options to their customers, which is why so many people want to choose one of these three companies. While they all have a lot to offer, with good features, and fair prices, InterServer really stands out from the other two. First, InterServer is a privately-owned company based in New Jersey. They have been focused on quality hosting since their founding, which has led them to build custom datacenters, direct connections to the Internet backbone, and much more. InterServer really is one of the best hosting providers in the USA, so it is no surprise that we found them to be the winner of this comparison.
