Concrete5 Compatible Hosting Providers
A couple years ago, I was testing out concrete5 on Media Temple and ran into some serious performance issues, which were never resolved. I'm now considering using concrete5 for another site that's currently hosted on GoDaddy. I've read in some of the other threads about users encountering problems with installing concrete5 on GoDaddy, but those were from a few years ago. I'm wondering if anything's changed since then, or if GoDaddy still isn't a good option?
I'm not sure if switching hosting providers is an option, so trying to weigh out my options.
I've also used C5spot.com...and they have really good performance as well.
I wasted literally 100's of hours trying to speed up my site on ipage - the time to first byte was taking 6-15 seconds on average. I slimmed down the site to just text and still couldn't get consistent results.
With cloudflare on, the same site loaded under 1 sec consistently. Now in the process of redesigning my site with a host that really works well with C5.
I have been using InMotion Business Class hosting. HIGHLY RECOMMEND IT! It is ultra-fast, has a 128MB php file upload limit, and their support is excellent. I have had ZERO problems with them since I started using them over 2 years ago.
VPS (virtual private servers) are a great option for Concrete, especially if you have many large projects. InMotion Hosting has some ideal options for that, too.
It can help you choose the right solution for your business and you get all the flexibility you need to customize your OS, servers and devices without having to troubleshoot, patch, monitor, backup or worry about the hardware and network.
