Looking for good Joomla host service

Post by popoguy » Sat Mar 28, 2020 9:05 am

Just found out the current host service provider has high loading times in U.S. That dragged down the search result in Google.
Is there anyone who knows better joomla host service?

Thanks for your suggestion.
But the web server is located in U.S. already, do you think CDN will fix the problem?

I don't have experience with US hosts ,usually a CDN helps but I can't say for sure.

I think CDN should help. I use CDN and it works like a charm.

Could you define "best"?
Best quality, cheapest or fastest hosting? (choose two).

Many of the results sozzled points to are old posts and many things change fast. Myself I use https://www.ionos.co.uk/
https://www.pixelinternet.co.uk/ are cheaper.

[ redacted ]

Let me write something that cannot be misconstrued as simply a reference to "old posts" and how "things change". For starters, the business of hosting websites has not changed even if some of the players have.

We read questions posted on this forum asking, "what's the best Joomla template/component/module/plugin, etc. for selling cars, event management, displaying artwork, making toasted cheese sandwiches (or whatever else people use websites for)" and none of these topics are distillable into one simple answer (or even a choice between several alternatives). While it might be nice to have an authoritative consumer guide, and it might be nice to have that consumer guide conveniently located on the Joomla forum website, there are thousands of consumer guides on the internet that address these kinds of issues.

Quite simply, finding "the best" (whatever it may be or however one defines "the best") is a matter of personal choice. Locating "the best Joomla hosting provider" may take several attempts. I understand that people would like to be forewarned about certain providers that have a poor reputation (so that they don't make mistakes that cost them needlessly) but, for the vast majority of people who attend on this forum, the first decision that people need to make is "why do I want a website?"

If one goes by recommendation of the business that hosts Joomla's websites then one could infer that Rochen is the best. After all, if Joomla uses Rochen (https://www.rochen.com/joomla-hosting/) then it's obvious, isn't it? Also, the company who provides sponsored content to Joomla in the form of launch.joomla.org is CloudAccessNet (https://www.cloudaccess.net/). So there's another best recommendation. And, no, I'm not getting a finder's fee for mentioning their names. I do not even mention anywhere in public the names of the webhosting companies with whom I conduct my business.

The point that I want to make is that the reasons that people choose webhosting method A over webhosting method X, Y or Z are as diverse as the people who use this forum. Just as we cannot pigeon-hole or classify people into different types, I think it would be equally unfair to categorise webhosting platforms (and the companies that offer these services) either.

I would like to make two comments:

1) There is a caveat implicit in these discussions that (a) questions asked on the forum are genuine and (b) any information posted in reply is sincere. How do we know (and how do the people who examine, review and moderate this forum know) that information posted on a public discussion forum is "real"? Likewise, how can forum novices confidently rely on information posted on a public discussion forum?

2) Certainly, the choice of webhosting partner for joomla.org is a matter for the OSM management team but, that choice and the sponsorship deal that's involved with the hosting provider nothwithstanding—it is not an endorsement that people should view the hosting provider as "the best". On the other hand, one can read into the current hosting arrangement anything that one might choose to do.

Most of the time I view these "what is the best" questions as a waste of time. These questions rarely get a thank-you; they rarely get a look-in from the people who create them. Perhaps in a few months from now we may get an apology along the lines of "Sorry I did not reply but I decided that watching the grass grow was more important that considering what was 'the best hosting service for Joomla' ... and I decided to build all of my websites in another CMS". And this will attract the inevitable flood of indignation or further replies begging the OP to return to Joomla ... *sigh* Who cares?

I care enough to write more than two sentences! I care enough to give an honest answer and not for the purposes of having a high forum post count. I cared enough to do some searching before I wrote something (even if the results of that search may have included some "old posts").

My personal opinion about whatever is "the best hosting service for Joomla" is the service that provides a cost-effective, efficient mechanism with high availability, speedy problem resolution, reliability, security and that meets my current and expected future needs. I also appreciate local knowledgeable, professional support.

Ultimately, you get what you pay for. If you don't take time to do your own research, if you don't ask questions, if you choose only on price then you probably won't be happy. Thank you for taking the time to read this.
