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.
I've been on Webfaction's shared hosting plan from 2013 when they were owned by private entity and hosted the servers with So...展开
ftlayer datacenter. But at the end of 2017 they got acquired by Godaddy and moved to HEG's St.Louis data center and the new servers are just awful. They go down atl east 2-3 times a week! Webfaction uses Ngnix as reverse proxy and many a times my sites were automically fall out from their configuration files - the result - blank pages. I had to open support department to get the things right. Webfaction does not use HTTP2, neither litespeed server or mariadb! They use the heavy and slow Apache server. The reliability of their servers has fallen down. They increase pricing from $8 to $10 per month for a shared web hosting plan. But you don't get a dedicated IP or control panel or access to backups. Their support is good.
