Best shared server hosting company that supports C52 users found helpful
I was wondering if anyone could share their opinion on the best shared server company that supports Concrete5? We currently have some sites hosted on GoDaddy but that's been problematic in regards to just installing C5 so we're looking for other options.
Thanks in advance for your help!
But - I have 5 concrete5 installs that have all worked really well and have upgraded to new versions without a hitch at: "JustHost" unlimited service plan runs about $4.00 per month.
If you're on a limited budget than I'd agree that JustHost is probably one of the cheapest you can find. I host around 6 concrete5 sites with them, and I don't have many issues at all. Even if something comes up, they have great support for such cheap hosting.

How about Pair, Bluehost, or A2 Hosting? Anyone have any experience with these hosting companies in terms of shared servers?
Best Concrete5 Hosting
This web host provides easy one-click installation and management of Concrete5.
The only issues I had so far was that my IP address got blocked by their firewall twice (the 1st time, apparently due to hundreds of open FTP connections; I don't know the cause of the 2nd incident).
Hard to beat the price.
1) New Zealand
3) United Kingdom
...We've got active servers in those regions, serving nearly 200 Concrete5 sites in a fast *I love the performance* manner.
Happy to offer a special rate to those who are after hosting in those services and mention finding Full Flavour Media on here.
Our Concrete5 tests found Bluehost was only on of two shared hosting providers that servered standard (sample content) Concrete5 pages in under 2 seconds consistently. GoDaddy performed worst with 10+ second load times during all testing periods.
Bluehost was the fastest and most reliable. The fact that bluehost has simple scripts with one click install of Concrete5 is a bonus.

I now rent my own managed server at liquidweb.com.
No server sharing anymore! :-D
liquidweb.com's support is truly fantastic, too. Nearly zero wait times for 24/7 support on email, chat, or phone, and succinct and effective responses to any problems I have.
Of course it costs about $2500 a year, but a whole server pays for itself pretty quick, with hosting and websites and all. They were named one of the fastest growing companies recently too, if I am remembering correctly.
