Host???

4 years 9 months ago #119668 by BDTEMPLE
Host??? was created by BDTEMPLE
I am about to go to Pantheon which was a suggestion here. That suggestion was a few months ago and I was curious what some thoughts were about that. Godaddy is where I am coming from and I am a new to drupal and web building. I get much support here so I'm not sure if the support from the host is as important to me from my host as it was to me when I started with go daddy. Any suggestions on a good host. I am building my own site where I want to run Commerce kickstart I am pretty sure, but I also do the site for out fire department and a few other non-profit, informational type sites.

Godaddy has a drupal 8 install but it doesnt have the PHP 5.5, I think it was, requirement.

Hi DBTEMPLE

Pantheon is certainly a good choice. You get a large suite of impressive tools at Pantheon, although you do have to pay more as a result.

GoDaddy will be cheaper, but you may need to press them a little harder on technical issues. For example, I suspect they will upgrade to PHP 5.5 (or even 7) but you'll need to ask.

Commerce Kickstart is a memory-intensive platform, so don't go too cheap on the hosting package.

We didn't want to spend the money on Pantheon. Went with Inmotion and have found it to be awesome. Your correct, most of your support is coming from O.S. training anyway. However, inmotion has always been good on their end with answers and tutorials of cpanel, etc.

Started with basic business. Going to upgrade to V.P.S., but don't need it yet.

Moving to VPS is a big step :)

Don't want to jack this thread, but since it seems to have lost steam. Valentin, did you say going to V.P.S. is a big step. I was hoping it was just a bigger "pipe" for data to flow thru.??? Can you inform me of what we will be dealing with. Thanks.

Hi Larry,

As long as it's a managed VPS, it's easy to move up. Valentin just meant it's a big milestone to celebrate :)

Kind regards,
Nick
