Hi everyone!

We are considering about changing our hosting company and need your advices. We are hosting our themes and also some local freelance projects. Our current numbers of visitors are about 50-70k per month for all themes/templates and other sites. And 30-40gb traffic. Considering about adding 2-3 themes/templates every month, traffic might take up to 500-600gb per month (I guess) a few months later.

I had some research on internet and also here, and found two companies that I liked. https://www.digitalocean.com and https://asmallorange.com

First one is giving more traffic and speed with lower cost. But considering that I’m a total noob about linux/terminal etc… Second one takes the lead because of providing cpanel.

So what do you suggest?

You should definitely consider Linode.com. They are very professional and the speed is just sweet. I am using Digital Ocean but I would not use them just yet for anything that is crucial in terms of stability and speed. I see them now as more developer and geek oriented :)

I have using MediaTemple and it seems now ok. In the past we have using the togglebox and that’s not so fast and requires upgrading if any problem occured lol :P

ASO

MediaTemple is great, but it has two big cons:

  • Doesn’t work well with MySQL databases
  • Is slower in Europe than in USA (at least a year ago it was much slower)

Thank you guys!

@pixelgrade I took a look at linode.com but seems they’re not providing a control panel either.

@themewaves Actually I have used MT way before for my personal usage, and didn’t like them because of MySQL databases as Ruben said.

Which plan are you using Ruben? And what is your average traffic? I informed by customer support that all of the plans come with cPanel but 2048 MB of RAM recommended for the VPS hosting. Actually I want to start with the base plan and upgrade later because of my current traffic. No need to waste money :)

Storm on Demand SSD is exceptional service, speed of the discs is excellent, reaching almost 1Gbyte per second, not to mention the support that guarantees answers in 1 minute. Here with me, 0 downtime

@SuitsTheme, i’m using a Cloud VPS with: 2 Cores, 1536MB Ram, 30 / 800gb storage / band. It works out pretty good. My traffic is really variable (it’s high when i release a new theme), but i get around 3-6mil hits / month and around around 30-40k real uniques / month.

Please note that if you’re in Europe you have to pay VAT extra of the price they advertise on their site..

If you only want to use Wordpress themes, you can install nginx + varnish cache and I guarantee you will save a lot, and the performance is amazing. I have installed here and even without any special configuration is the TTFB miliseconds

After trying more than one week to figure how to install Wordpress Multisite Network on nginx I gave up and returned to Apache. Nginx is very good at speed but is a pain in the a** when it needs to be configured. :confused:
