I am looking for a good shared hosting package to use when purchasing my Xenforo license. I have prior to this been using Swedish hosting for my websites but since this new forum is aimed at USA and UK I am looking for international hosting packages.
I am comparing the biggest players, Hostgator, Godaddy, Bluehost and Dreamhost. I understand that many people are using Hostgator with Xenforo and I am leaning towards using them, but I have read that they have gotten quite bad after being acquired by EIG. Is anybody here using Hostgator and have experienced any difference in support and uptime since they have been acquired?
At the moment I am mainly choosing between the Hostgator business package for about $11/monthly, or GoDaddy Ultimate for $7.50/monthly. Bluehost seems good but only offers one shared package at $3.95/monthly which I presume must have a hard time living up to the same standard as the premium shared packages mentioned above. Dreamhost I don't know so much about and their shared hosting at $8.95/monthly.
Which shared hosting do you use for your Xenforo forum?
Thanks for helping me!
