Nothing beats Bluehost when it comes to speed and support
For my forums at https://community.centminmod.com/ been using Linode 8GB 4CPU KVM VPS plan running my Centmin Mod LEMP stack with Nginx + PHP 7 (with PGO enabled) PHP-FPM + MariaDB MySQL since almost the start of the forum in 2014 so 5yrs this month Ample resources, only went with higher Linode plan for disk space but extra memory is very useful for various cache implementations across the serverI would like to know what hosting company everyone is using, and what kind /size/cost of package they are on.
Well, in the case of my forum, it was. Basically because with a managed hoster, I had too many restrictions and choices foisted upon me that crimped what I could do with my forum. For example, being able to install ImageMagick, or Elasticsearch, or getting close to the limitations on inode count, or database size restriction......or wanting to run a more current version of php or apache than a managed hoster allows. Or file upload size restrictions for images.So if I would save $40 per month by switching, and my time is worth $40, would it be worth it?
Apart from just a regular vps instance, ideally options for content spaces, CDN, load balancers, dedicated backends for DB, private networking, kubernetes clusters. All things I don't use for my own site but they're all there if needed At minimum the ability to extend SSD storage or attach block/space storage.what would you guys want to see in a hosting package that maybe you usually dont?
