I'm with Site5 right now, but considering switching to siteground.com

Siteground seems to get good reviews and still an independent company, as far as I know. Site5 got bought out by a company that is buying a lot of other hosting companies and that usually bothers me, as service and features seem to go down.

Site ground is not the cheapest but I have been with them for several years and they have been very responsive every time I have contacted them with a question or issue.

I have been with justhost for ages for developing sites. I run client sites on there as well. However more and more the backend connections just go down ftp, sftp, phpmyadmin just stop working. Sometimes for 30mins sometimes for 2-4 days which is crazy for professional use.

Can anyone recommend a solid webhost with top reliability and a good steady slope of price plans as traffic goes up. Needs to have :

Cpanel
php 7 or above
MySQL and phpMyAdmin
ftp pref secure

Its so hard to find this from a google as so many webhosts are in the business of lying professionally. Creating fake review sites just to push theirs to the top. Everyone promises 99.9% uptime so its hard to tell the ones that really do.

i've always found A Small Orange to be good and very reasonably priced, but it depends how much throughput you net. Mine are Freeway and Wordpress brochures.

I've been using ProISP for years, and consider them the best host in Norway: https://www.proisp.eu/web-hosting/

Cheap, reliable and offers (almost) all relevant technology (cPanel, PHP/MySQL, phpMyAdmin, FTP, Basic SSL) on all their plans, even the cheapest one. I especially love Softaculous with its one click installer for everything: https://www.softaculous.com/softwares

Edit: The link above is clean, but if you want to sign up, you may also use this referral link (giving me two months free hosting): https://www.proisp.eu/ref/17649/

I’ve used BigScoots for years (had a reseller account with them) but 2 years ago moved to HawkHost just to save a little money as my projects don’t need anything special as of yet - both are amazing hosts where downtime is very rare.

What do you use?

Siteground has been my favorite and I am not planning to venture into a new hosting provider yet.
