Yeah, I just talked about with the live chat and they told me the same… not the best customer experience, even sending a simple confirmation email that they got my money would have been more than nothing.. :P

Im based in South Africa, so Im wondering if its safe to actually host overseas, in terms of speeds.

Your guys thoughts ? Would hosting overseas kill the speeds on my photography / videography site + blog ?

BlueHost’s “wordpress” oriented options are pretty consistent (starting from $24 a month)
Also go for VaultPress and Sucuri for extra security services, and sleep with peace ;)

@ignitetek Please take any hosting support questions directly to the host. We don’t want to use the forums to call out other businesses :) Thanks!

Didn’t qualify for the offer in the sense that I already am a customer of InMotion, but they really are a fantastic hosting company. Sales/Customer support will always help you and they do live up to the 99,99% up time guarantee, which is quite rare these days with all the ‘great new’ hosting companies that don’t have proper infrastructure or experience to handle clients.

I have 3 accounts with Inmotion Hosting. The reason I’ve stayed with them throughout the years is because of their after-sales service.

One instance in particular that I will never forget is that with what little programming knowledge I have, the tech guy stayed on the phone with me for 5 hours just to fix a problem that I caused.

See, I’m more of a designer than a developer.

I haven’t regretted being their client since.

What’s important to me is the after-sales support any company gives their clients. These guys are trained.

We call that Service As A Service (SaaS).

I cant speak for a2 Hosting but I had to use InMotion to build a clients website and had trouble left and right. Throughout the job their server was jeopardized and I lost a bunch of work I had done, their email client always deleted emails and actually deleted all of my in-going and out-going emails on multiple occasions, plus it seemed like they were doing “routine maintenance” every other day.

I personally use JustHost and have had nothing but pleasant experiences with them.

PM me if you have any questions about JostHost, I’ve been with them about 5 years now.
