  1. The video you made 2 years ago about Hostinger made it seemed like you loved them and you practically cummed at the sound of their name. & now it's terrible and the customer support takes so long to answer? Idk the inconsistencies make it hard to trust your recommendations

  2. Hi Cralor, if i use hostinger premium shared hosting plan and have two domains for wordpress blogging websites, will the 512 mb ram allotted for the plan is enough to run them smoothly for ads and affiliate for both websites?

  3. NameCheap: For plugin debacles, I don't do automatic updates, and I use the free UpdraftPlus – Backup/Restore plugin manually. That is so that if something goes wrong and I don't notice it, the backups don't age out before I realize what happened, and whenever I look at the backups, I know all of them are good.

    I have to admit I never heard of some of the hosters you reviewed here. I'll probably continue moving people off our servers to BlueHost shared. I'd be interested in your thoughts on caching plugins and the CDNs.

  4. In your 2019 review you seemed to recommend Bluehost as the one with the most options available and also Hostinger as having the overall best value and features. So, Bluehost went from being good and flexible to not being worth mentioning? And Hostinger went from great to not-so-good? Can host companies really change so drastically within a year?

  5. Hi Christian thanks for this amazing video, I'm with Hostinger at the moment I'm wondering about Heaven Hoster once my plan finish, Can you please do a review of Heaven Hoster? Thank you

  6. Thanks for the video, Christian! I think a good WP Engine alternative could be something like WPX, because WPX has Litespeed Servers, which when I checked it out, are super fast servers. Thanks again, Christian!

  7. This is great. What's your feeling on Cloudways vs. SiteGround, after the SiteGround redesign? I'm looking to set up a pretty but probably initially low-traffic ecommerce site with WordPress, basic html pages, and likely Shopify (slight possibility of Woocommerce.) Low cost is important so the fact SiteGround jumps so much the second year is a factor. But is the $10 Cloudways starter ok for one site. . . High quality phone support has been important to me in the past but maybe it's not as much of a factor as I think it is. . . one thing I know, clean interface and usability is stupidly important to me as a graphic designer and visual person. Even Cpanel standard is tough on me

  8. Anyone can help us, me and my friend want have our website hosted, we have around 50$ budget, what is the most secure, easy to use, webhoster, have cpanel.
    We don't know how to do any coding*.

  9. what a different between geting a hosting site and a web blogging site, i am new, can some one plz let me knoq the options. I want to have to doffernt bloging topics and websote, what should be the best for me.

  10. Great video! Although Cloudways probably have THE MOST RIDICULOUS sign-up procedure I have ever seen online. I mean honestly, they ask you to randomly send them an email to verify your account and then for copies of your passport and LinkedIn profile to verify your identity. Honestly WTF its comedic.

  11. I'm Glad I continued your video. Great info on the Cloudways . I was wondering about being able to work on the website without interrupting the live website 🙂

  12. Great tutorial. I'm 8 minutes into this video and I'm having trouble following you because I'm new to this and that background music is distracting :/ Maybe lower that music a little more or ditch it? Sorry 🙁

  13. Sounds like you're much less enamored with Hostinger after using them since last year's review. I had been leaning toward Dreamhost or Namecheap but now I'll think about Cloudways. Do you consider any advantage to Dreamhost being one of 3 WP authorized web hosts (the other 2 are Bluehost and Siteground).

  14. Thanks for the honest review! I decided to give CloudWays a try based on your information (I made sure to use your affiliate link). Looking forward to see how they do. Then again, almost anything beats GoDaddy.

  15. Could you help me figure out which hosting service I need? I’m looking to build a 3D tour website. Should be pretty simple, show some 3D models of properties walkthroughs along with a contact me page. What would be best for me? Thanks in advance.

  16. This is such a fantastic review! Thank you for your honesty and clarity – it's very refreshing! I'm just starting out so it's all a bit overwhelming as I try to pick the best fit for my situation. I wondered if I could pick your brains? 

    I'm looking to start an e-commerce website specialising in digital downloads (hosting these via a Dropbox plugin), hosting around 1000 digital product pages and I'm looking at potential hosting companies – in particular, SiteGround, WP Engine and now (since watching this video!!), Cloudways. I'm just starting out so am looking for reliability, ability to scale (as I'm unsure what my traffic will become over the next year) in the mid price range and wondered what you might recommend?

    Thanks again for the video! You've got a new subscriber here!


  18. At 16:17 you mentioned that cloudways allows users to duplicate a website and make changes without affecting the site that is actually live. Is there a way to do something like this with cpanel? I have a site that's running on some outdated site builder and want to switch to wordpress, but I also don't want to lose what is already up until I am actually ready to make a new wordpress page go live. Your advice is appreciated!
