I accidentally deleted my entire website (my fault), and my backups weren't working properly, but they managed to provide a b...展开
ackup and support within record time. Saved me from a panic attack. Truly appreciate that! Some cons: a bit slower than my previous BlueHost, but definitely far less expensive. Also uses the latest MySQL on VPS only, not shared hosting.
I had previously used a2hosting for wordpress and it worked great. However, recently I tried to move my node/express website ...展开
from heroku to a2 and it got as bad as it could get. First of all It says it costs $4.90/month, but when purchased it, I had to, for someone reason, pay $7, thought I initially thought it'll be alright, later I realized It was only for the 1st month, and after that I'll have to pay $13/ month. That's straight cheating, I would've sued them if it had happened in a larger scale. And I think it's currently true for php/wordpress hosting as well.
Furthermore, documentation for node is very very bad, I was initially very gald as someone was giving node hosting at reasonable price, but hey nothing is free.
Since I've been using this hosting I've had a lot of problems with resource allocation to my site, a lot of errors regarding ...展开
caching and connection to database even in moments when user count is at it's lowest, it seems like those errors are in the moments when their US based company has the highest user connections. After one such crash I wasn't able to get my backup because they do not make full backups and afterwards suggested me to pay for it extra or do it manually. It seems that business shared plan is as overloaded as they basic shared plans.
And now they just terminated my websites and asked for me to join cloudflare, to point my DNS there so i can reduce the load of my page because they are saying that my page has made a big impact on their servers even though they can't provide me logs with data that could prove that and I haven't received any warnings regarding high load. My website is now offline for 3 days. I have to wait for CloudFlare support because I cannot change DNS myself there. So I have no clue for how long time my sites will be offline. Support doesn't respond to my questions regarding refunds of lost time and they just force me to register at CloudFlare and say that if I don't do that my site will be removed. I think that since Arvixe is a partner of CloudFlare this is just a scam to get more customers to CloudFlare. Because I've been running my script for 8 years on multiple hostings and never had a such problem with high loads.
