To be honest, I didn’t want to blog about my web hosting provider, and selfishly wanted to keep this secret to myself. But their hosting deal and customer support are just too good for everyone to not experience it. So now, after more than a year of hosting with them, I decided to break the silence.
I have tried 3 hosting providers before finally settling with this excellent Web hosting provider. If you’ve been using WordPress for a while, you may have experienced the following common problems:
- You can’t automatically update your plugins and themes unless you CHMOD your folders to 777 and files to 666 (777 and 666 are the most unsecured folder and file settings, and your site will be prone to hacks).
- You can’t update your Permalinks unless you CHMOD your .htaccess file to 666.
- Your Fantastico panel can’t keep up with the latest WordPress version until after two weeks or more.
- Your hosting provider has no clue when it comes to problems with your WordPress install.
- Your hosting provider has crappy customer support.
- … and the most dreaded of all, your WordPress-powered site is using too much memory or CPU resource, that your hosting provider had to shut your site down, or even worse, suspend your hosting account!
I faced all these issues at one time or another during my first year after I started blogging with WordPress. The CPU resource hog was my worst nightmare — WebGrrrl.net wasn’t accessible for almost two weeks because I was using 0.5% more than the 4% CPU limit! Frantically but cautiously, I began my search for the best WordPress hosting I can get without breaking the bank.
Until today, my experience helping others with their WordPress install on Dreamhost, Bluehost, Godaddy and HostGator proved that I made the best choice by selecting WP WebHost for my WordPress sites. This is one hosting that sounds too good to be true, but is, actually, absolutely superb, that I don’t think I’ll be happier with any other hosting provider.
Thanks to their WordPress-optimized servers, my hosting issues are now virtually non-existent, and their support is kick-ass, to say the least. Even through e-mail support which I prefer to use, most of the time the response is almost immediate that it boggles the mind! WP WebHost’s Fantastico panel also shows the latest WordPress version a day or two after the update is available, which makes upgrading my more than 10 WordPress sites feel like peanuts.
Best of all, you, the WebGrrrl.net readers, are now eligible to get your very own WordPress hosting with WP WebHost at a crazy 30% DISCOUNT! Yes you heard me right! This means that, using the promotional code WEBGRRRL30, you will get a one-time 30% off all WP WebHost hosting plans, like so:
- For the monthly plan, it’ll only cost you US$5.60 for the first month, then US$8/month for subsequent months
- For the annual plan, it’ll only cost you US$4.67/month (US$56/year) for the first year, then US$6.67/month (US$80/year) for subsequent years (billing is annually)
- For the 2-year plan, it’ll only cost you US$3.50/month (US$84/2 years) for the first 2 years, then US$5/month (US$120/2 years) for every 2-years thereafter (billing is biennially)
You can ask them to transfer your WordPress site from your old hosting provider for free, and I don’t think you’ll be using their 100-day money back guarantee any time soon.
Wow, I’ve been drafting this post for so long, because I really want to do justice to how special WP WebHost is — they make me love WordPress even more!
