We are having a dynamic website and we are running on go-daddy shared hosting connection. We found that, in a day minimum half an hour server will be down which also can go for hours. So we are in a search for best cloud hosting companies for start ups with an average pricing. I would like to get the reviews from real users with both positive and negative review.

This is something very important question for every business owner have. I also had the same, so i did the small research on the same. Googled it quality comparisons. and found shocking result how web hosting companies are making people fool.

They offering HDD Hosting i.e. same as our computer or laptop having, then what is the difference between server and our computer.

So I bought 4 services from 4 different providers and categories into two areas.

1st one: Very high quality services Product

  • Lowest Price
  • Highest Price

2nd One: Popular Brand in the market

In First Categories InMotionHosting and DomainRacer, while in second categories I choosen Goddady and BlueHost.

I got shocking result InMotionHosting and DomainRacer are performing awesome in all the test cases. In-fact prices between InMotionHosting and DomainRacer is 10x different.

This clears that DomainRacer is High Quality service as same as InMotionHosting, but as compare to pricing DomainRacer is standing out of the box from all test cases.

I think now Probably You got your answer. Also please suggest me anything I missed.

Hi, I would recommend hostgator. I have been working with all famous hosts around the world but found them more appropriate, especially in case of startup they have amazing low cost packages. Try them, you will find the difference. BTW my journey was started from the godaddy too. But they suck the hosting, they are perfect for domain only services.

Just for comparison. We run three websites (on PHP) with GoDaddy. At most they have been down a TOTAL of 20 min for the entire year (knock on wood).

Are you sure something in your configuration is not causing this? It might help to check your load/level setting. Or, request GoDaddy to move you to another server.

We also use Azure (for backend and other services). Top notch, however is more expensive.

Best of lucks!

MS Azure. World class security at all levels, uptime, CDN capabilities, good support )occasionally great support), vast capacity. And I personally find it easier to understand than AWS (Amazon Web Services).

Hi, I will recommend AWS. You can check the free tier for first year. After free tier you can check the package as per your requirement. Also expansion is too easy in AWS server as compared to any other servers.

I would keep it short and simple, try for Hostgator & Digital Ocean. They would offer the best services with proper customized hosting plans suited for everyone's needs. Would really recommend to try it out

Try our Cloudways PHP web hosting (https://www.cloudways.com/en/php-cloud-hosting.php ). It is a managed hosting platform that you can use to host your app on infrastructures, like DigitalOcean. Their pricing starts from $7/month.

Since they provide managed services, this means you don't need to both with server management, uptime, security patches, etc. All of this is handled by their team. This way you can spend all your time and efforts on your business.

You can read their reviews on their Facebook page or just Google it.
