Nestify Hosting Review 2019

If managed WordPress hosting had a face, it would be Nestify. Why do we say that?

It is because not only Nestify has some impeccable features but it is also high on 24/7 customer support. If your managed WordPress hosting needs a fix, Nestify should be your go-to-hosting option.

What makes Nestify stand out of the rest of managed WordPress hosting services?

Giants such as Bluehost and Hostgator all offer managed WordPress hosting services, but for the following reasons, Nestify takes the cake:

1. Has Incredibly Fast Speed

Basing your website on a platform which has the best speed to offer is sound decision-making. In turn, your site gets faster load times and in the eyes of Google your rankings are improved. The real essence of Nestify lies in its servers which makes, especially your WordPress site a rewarding experience for visitors.

It has built-in CDN (Content Delivery Network), meaning the speed of your site is always optimal. It has a scalable infrastructure which makes it a reliable hosting platform.

According to hosting experts, Nestify makes your website run 4-6 times faster in comparison to other hosting providers. It has an advanced caching feature which decreases the overall website load time leading to a faster site.

2. Impenetrable Security

We all know how websites are susceptible to attacks from hackers. It is for this reason Nestify offers an impenetrable security to its users. Hackers have improvised their ways of hacking websites so not just any website security would cut it.

Nestify is known to keep millions of cybercriminals at bay, every day. That is no small number. In addition, it prevents brute force attack that allows the hacker to try several permutations and combinations of usernames/passwords to crack credentials.

The PHP tuning at the backend allows Nestify to block unsafe and threatening commands made by cybercriminals. Moreover, frequent vulnerability scans add an extra layer of security by updating you on the status if the site is really secure.

Although, if for some reason, the site still gets hacked, the personnel at Nestify will fix it for you at no cost. Usually, if any site is hacked, it could cost an owner a fortune but at Nestify, you can get it fixed for free!

3. Routine Backup Facility

What if we were to tell you that Nestify regularly backup your WordPress website data? It does so without fail.

Backing up of website data is crucial since it creates copies of your data, in the case if your site’s security were to get compromised or you lose access to your system in a fire, etc. Next time you get access, you can restore data to your website by simply running the restore functionality to travel back in time to the point where you left off.

Furthermore, you can create manual backups by clicking Backup Now option from your Nestify dashboard. A notification is sent to you intimating that your website data has been successfully backed up.

It is especially helpful if you aim to make major changes to your WordPress website. In this scenario, backing up data is the sensible thing to do.

GoDaddy Hosting Review 2019

GoDaddy doesn’t need introduction as it is easily the hosting platform giant. The biggest in the US and boasts more than 63 million domains. The user base has grown exponentially and presently stands at 14 million. However, just because it has huge numbers that does not automatically makes it a worthy contender for you.

Here’s why, in this review we will try to establish whether or not GoDaddy is best for business. First and foremost, let’s find out about some of its plans.

Plans and offerings

GoDaddy has a couple of plans up its sleeves. Obviously there is a basic one and other high end plans. Its Economy plan is available on either a three-month basis or for an annual (paid monthly) basis.

Economy plan naturally has limited resources such as support for one website, 100 GB storage and no SSL certificate etc. On the other hand, GoDaddy also offers a Deluxe plan. The plan supports unlimited number of websites, MySQL databases and 25 x 1 GB of storage space which is 10 times that of Economy.

Furthermore and for more premium users, GoDaddy has an Ultimate plan. It is the ultimate offering by GoDaddy as the name implies. As a user, you get double CPU and RAM allocation, DNS coupled with DNSSEC security and a 1-year SSL certificate.

Linux users are especially in luck because those who are well-versed can take advantage of GoDaddy’s cPanel as they are allowed low-level server access, raw access logs plus, year-long trial of Office 365 Outlook with mail and shared online calendar support.

Next, we’ll look into setting things up with GoDaddy.

Setting up an account

You can set up your GoDaddy account by selecting from a variety of payment terms: these ranges from 1-month, 3-month to 12, 24 and 36 months. Choose whichever is convenient for you.

At the time of signing up, you are provided with some starter addons.

What are they?

These include backup and restore, routine malware scanning or any free trial products which come pre-selected when registering for the service. You always have the option to unselect the boxes for the products you don’t need.

Once the payment is made, the rest of the steps are as easy as 1-2-3. You will first be asked to enter a domain name for your site. After that, you are required to choose the data center (location) where you want your site to be hosted. Lastly, you will be asked to create a cPanel login.

For any newbie, it might be a lot to digest but it’s best to continue with any selection for the time being and proceed towards completing the process. Elements such as choosing of data center or deciding on a domain name (which if not already) can be changed later as well.

It is now time to create that website of yours. So read on.

Establishing a web presence

When it comes to creating a website with GoDaddy, its Linux based hosting presents you with a cPanel frontend to manage your site. Although, this can be a cumbersome exercise especially for novice users but with time and effort, you can grasp it.

For those of you thinking, “who has the time to learn how to navigate a cPanel?” Well, learning is never wasted. Familiarizing yourself with cPanel can help you traverse many other hosting providers, should a need arises in future as it is used by most.

With a basic GoDaddy plan, you do not get a Website Builder but what you do get is preview sites. Preview sites let you quickly create a professional looking website, in no time. So for whatever the basic plan’s worth, it is enough to get a beginner by.

Moreover, the cPanel and GoDaddy’s Installatron can be used to set up a blog or install CMS (content management system) in place. It could also be used for developing any other web application.

When hosting a WordPress site (given it’s the most widespread platform) with GoDaddy, you will see options such as on auto-update policies and blog admin. But if it proves to be too overwhelming, simply hit install and as stated previously, you can deal with the settings later on.

Hosting provider performance

GoDaddy has three tier customer support; a knowledgebase with articles including walkthroughs and troubleshooting guides. Secondly, a customer forum or can be referred to as GoDaddy community where other users talk about what’s latest and put forth their concerns. Lastly, a 24/7 contact support number is available for any GoDaddy related queries.

So the provider has its users well covered, from all ends. If you delve into the knowledgebase a little, you will notice a limited number of FAQs. But do not be turn off by this since when you actually search about a particular topic, a list of technical articles will show up in your results. If you know what and where to look for in those articles, knowledgebase is for you.

Customer forum does not get many questions answered, perhaps because much of it is handled at the first tier level support. On an average, some 25 people may come looking for answers or answer questions posted therein. The downside is if you are actually waiting on an answer, it might take several days before a solution is proposed or the matter is resolved.

Contacting the team on their provided phone number can be a bit of hassle. Not only the navigation is confusing but you will be asked to enter customer ID, select the service you are calling for, phone PIN and so on so forth. This inadvertently increases wait times and can be a challenge for people low on patience.

In terms of server performance, GoDaddy fares positively on Bitcatcha Speed Checker and WebPageTest is reported to be around 0.4 seconds and that’s just for the ‘first byte’. The results are indeed good and considering these are for its basic hosting account – is not short of a feat!

Final word

(And) that’s all she wrote.

Amidst wide array of product offerings, optimal uptime and above average performance, GoDaddy has cemented itself as a leader in the hosting industry. It may be that you have to spend premium for addons such as Website Builder and extra features (Managed WordPress hosting) but in the end, it’s worth it.

Furthermore, a 30-day refund option is at your disposal. Therefore, you don’t have a lot to lose if things don’t turn out for you the way you had hoped. However, there’s a catch. Conditions vary. If you happen to be subscribed to a plan which is of less than a year, the grace period allowed is only 48 hours.

Whether or not it’s best for your business, we leave it up to you.

Kinsta Hosting Review 2019

Kinsta is a managed WordPress hosting provider and was established back in 2013. If you happen to be a user who isn’t merely looking to run marketing campaigns or is on a budget, Kinsta is for you. It is both reliable and fast.

By being a managed WordPress hosting provider it means that not only Kinsta lets you manage your website rather it also facilitates an environment which is specifically aimed at optimizing WordPress sites.

What is that exactly? It includes aspects such as security, caching and backups. All of these operations are handled by Kinsta thereby saving you time allowing you to take care of other matters in the meantime.

Rest assured, simply nothing can wrong on your website with Kinsta service backing it.

Loading times are fast. Now that does not mean lightning fast but enough to make you visitor stay and engage with your website. In turn letting you achieve objectives such as sales, improved conversion rate or mere increase in traffic.

In terms of their customer support, they are adequately trained to help you with any troubleshooting issues you might run into. They are equally equipped in tackling software level concerns. So much so that the staff on the company’s CS team have actually contributed in the development of WordPress.

Imagine the prowess on these guys!

And that’s not it, here some other offerings by Kinsta.

Google Cloud Platform

You know what separates Kinsta from other managed hosting providers; it’s the company’s ability to employ Google Cloud Platform. This means that your website is managed and hosted on a Google infrastructure which is a feat in itself!

Why?

Come to think of it your website shares the same infrastructure as sites like Spotify, Coca-Cola and Snapchat etc. does.

To be hosted on Google Cloud Platform means that your website is getting a first-rate treatment. You can have it hosted on 17 different locations as a result. At the time of writing this, Hong Kong and Switzerland are currently not available for hosting.

Since GCP is scalable by definition so should your website proves to be groundbreaking in the future, the scalability factor will accordingly adjust to cater the huge spikes in user traffic.

Auto Backups

As already stated, Kinsta supports automatic backing up of your website data so by default from the onset Kinsta is performing backups of your site. The backup is kept for 14 days minimum after which it is disregarded. But that is just for basic Kinsta plan. On higher plans, the minimum mark can be changed.

Also, restoring of backups is fairly simple. When restoring backup, you are provided with the option to either deploy it in the test or live environment. Moreover, if you have the cash you can speed up daily backups to every six hours or hourly by paying a monthly fee. As a user, you can always create manual backups and download them for later retrieval.

The Staging service

Staging as the word implies means playing around with plugins, various customizations and edits in test environment without disrupting your live website. This lets you gauge which option best suits your website and which themes/plugins/code edits doesn’t.

From developers’ point of view, they can benefit from switching between different PHP versions, restarting them, and by accessing the New Relic PHP monitoring mechanism. It further enables the user to utilize the search-and-replace facility which helps him to modify contents of database to WordPress website.

Other Kinsta features

If you thought that that was all, here’s why you should rethink. Following technical features highlights the dominance of Kinsta in the hosting services industry.

1. Website caching

Users are provided with four kinds of caching including in-house WordPress caching plugin and that of server-level caching.

2. PHP

As previously mentioned, with Kinsta you can switch between different versions of PHP at any given point in time – no questions asked. This includes versions 5, 6, 7, 7.1 and 7.2.

3. SSL

You have the ability to either settle for SSL certificate from Let’s Encrypt or you can have your own SSL certificate installed.

4. Server file manager

SFM isn’t available at this time only FTP when accessing server space.

5. Email service

No email service either with any of Kinsta plans. We recommend relying on G Suite in the meantime.

6. CDN or Content Delivery Network

With basic Kinsta plan you get 50 GB KeyCDN usage but if you move on to higher plans more usage venues show up at user’s disposal.

7. HTTP/2.0

HTTP or 2.0 can be used on servers as well as on the CDN.

8. Plugin restrictions

Many hosting providers keep a ‘banned plugins list’. This is done to prevent website performance issues. These plugins range from security, optimization and caching.

9. Security measures

You can never be too safe in the current cyber sphere which is why security measures are already in place with Kinsta. Measures such as GeoIP blocking, proactive malicious code detection and DDoS scanning etc. are all present to ensure a safer website experience.

10. Post-hack clean up services

Yes, you guessed it. If for some reason, your website is hacked, guys at Kinsta will fix it for free!

11. WordPress website management

Updates to different plugins are installed through Kinsta dashboard but an automatic update feature is lacking. No way to update WordPress software either.

12. WordPress website migration

You can transfer data from your old website to Kinsta platform with its easy to use WordPress website migration tool. On premium packages the feature is available for free but folks with basic plan aren’t so lucky. Though for an extra $100, they too can have it.

13. Uptime checks

Status of your website is constantly monitored. Some say every five minutes so that the customer support team can keep tabs on how your website is functioning and in case of reported downtime, the matter is accordingly addressed.

14. Visitor analytics

Let users view the visitor activity on the website via Kinsta dashboard.

15. Support channels

If you are hosting more than one websites, they can all be managed by means of a single Kinsta dashboard.

Now, that’s saying something!

Performance and Final Word

Bluehost Hosting Review 2019

Bluehost is a notable hosting company. It was established in the year 2003, and is currently operating from Utah. The owners of Bluehost are those who own the Endurance International Group. The same group is behind the names such as HostGator and Domain.com etc.

When it comes to Bluehost, the packages start with their ‘basic’ plan. A basic plan usually comprises five email accounts and merely offers 100MB of storage. In addition, a user gets 50GB of website space, free Website Builder and 1-click installation setup for WordPress among other things.

With a ‘plus’ plan, offerings multiply and are in abundance compared to basic such as unlimited websites, subdomains and storage space etc. But there’s more. There is a ‘premium’ offering as well –courtesy of Bluehost. Consider it as plus plan with backup functionality and domain privacy.

Let us now delve into how you can get started with Bluehost hosting and learn about its features that has made it a renowned name in the website hosting industry.

Gearing up for Bluehost account

You can begin by entering your desired domain that you would like to register for. In the case, where you already own a domain name, simply enter it when asked. You also have the option to transfer a particular domain to Bluehost, if you’d prefer although, that is not a requirement. You can always update the name at a later date.

What follows is an account creation page, where you will be required to enter your personal details including name, email address and contact number. Upon scrolling down a little you will be provided with the option to select the desired plan and this is the part where you are able to scan for pricing and decide the plan which suits you the best.

No matter which plan you opt for, remember Bluehost accepts payments for 36 months in advance. So there’s that. Next, check to see which payment method is more appropriate to you. By default, ‘Pay by credit card’ is selected. Under ‘More payment options’, you can select the desired payment method such as PayPal.

The best part, however, is that you can choose, whether you want a particular plan to be renewed automatically. Choose ‘do not renew’ and by the end of the term, you can either select a new plan or cancel – it’s all up to you. In order to cancel, a user is required to call on the phone number +1 855 984 4546 to schedule the account for deletion or request termination.

Putting it to practice

Now that the account is set up, the following step is to move towards creating the website. You will be immediately taken to the screen where you can set a new password and access the customer management panel.

Welcome email fills you in with all forms of relevant information such as mail server info, FTP logins as well as a temporary URL is assigned to you. You can bask in the temporary URL until you get a domain and DNS for yourself, up and running (if you don’t have it in place, already).

That way a user is able to access his files, use Bluehost control panel for a wide array of website management functions such as management of FTP, email and so on.  Where a site is already live, it will naturally save user the time plus, you don’t have to manually look up for control panel in Bluehost. Simply utilize the FTP for uploading files whenever you need to.

Ever heard of Weebly? Yes, Weebly – a free website builder. Bluehost has a similar Website Builder in its arsenal. Although, it’s pretty basic but you can employ the WYSIWYG browser-based editor to develop a website that can contain up to six pages and that’s saying something! More functionality is expected in future.

Furthermore, Bluehost bring its users a Mojo Marketplace. What’s that now, you ask? It is a power system that asks for minimal details and in turn, lets you install your desired app without dragging it out in the form of lengthy steps. You also get automated WordPress installation with a Bluehost subscription.

An entire dedicated cPanel area is available for users, especially the experienced ones. If it’s AWStats or Cron Job or PHP Config – you’ll find everything here. Not the perfect website hosting service but Bluehost has proven itself as among the leading hosting provider that is both power-packed and simple to navigate.

How well it fares when it comes to performance?

Performance wise, Bluehost provides effortless integration of help as well as of hosting control panel. When clicking Support button, it opens up a new panel with a search bar embedded therein rather than opening a new page altogether which can become annoying for people.

In the search bar above, enter your query and you will be provided with the list of guides/articles which you can then refer to for troubleshooting any issues you might run into. Though, each article opens up in a new tab.

When compared with competitors in the market, Bluehost’s support centre is well organized and is aimed at speedy resolution of the problems. Search can display articles from between 5 to 50 per page, giving you the option to sort by relevance or most viewed/helpful allowing you to narrow down results.

Resort to live chat if there isn’t anything on the topic that you are searching for which is unlikely because even a vague search such as ‘PHP’ will dish out some very useful articles at your disposal. Where live chat is not available, telephone (as previously stated) is the best way to get in touch with their team.

Bitcatcha and related performance benchmarks have resulted in excellent speeds specifically when connected via the US. Ping timings from other regions can be a bit slow but don’t hold that against Bluehost.

Final word

With average performance, handy features, excellent support and no BS site management tools – Bluehost is a winner. Can be a pricey option for those on a budget, but with company’s 30-day money back guarantee and resourceful online help, it is not at all a bad bargain.

Though Cloudways is intended mainly for well-versed developers and users with advanced expertise of hosting but the articles in Help Center are pretty much understandable even by a novice user. Actionable steps are detailed in a couple of sentences and jargons are kept to a minimum.

Try looking up WordPress and you will notice that not only articles pertaining to troubleshooting are available but also, on how you can migrate if from other web hosting services are laid out in plain English such as from GoDaddy or HostGator etc. Furthermore, bearing in mind the example of WordPress only, expect guides on its caching schemes as well as other issues.

With Cloudways you get a dedicated community which is there to lend out help to fellow users of Cloudways service. This gives you an insight as to what people are talking about and what kind of problems they run into.

Cloudways comes with a 3-day trial and in order to bask in it you don’t have to enter your card details just your email address.

Although you will serve as first line of interception for the customers, however, you are not responsible for any hardware or connectivity related troubleshooting (issues) rather it falls under the purview of original web hosts’ data centers to sort.

Is it a SaaS based concept?

Yes, reseller hosting is a SaaS (Software as a service) based concept where you merely reap rewards by selling website hosting to customers. You are only responsible customer service. Rest is taken care of by the software owner.

Concerns related to server, software or that has to do with infrastructure fall in the court of the bigger company. Furthermore, any issues pertaining to hardware or troubleshooting, also, are responsibility of the original web hosting company.

Best Shared Hosting Providers of 2019

Top Shared Hosting Providers of 2019

What is Shared Hosting?

Shared hosting is web hosting where the service provider serves pages for multiple websites in which each website has its own Internet domain name from a single web server. Most of the web hosting companies provide shared hosting these days. Even though shared hosting is a pocket friendly approach for business when they need a web presence initially, but as the traffic increases beyond a certain amount, they then need to switch to dedicated hosting.

How does shared hosting work?

Shared hosting has multiple websites that are stored in one single server sharing the common resources. The hosting charges vary depending on your plan where ordinary features will cost relatively lesser than plans with distinct features.

Types of Shared Hosting and which one to choose?

There are two main types of Shared Hosting that are based on the server’s operating systems: Linux Shared Hosting and Windows Shared Hosting. As the names suggest, Linux shared hosting servers have Linux based operating system (such as Ubuntu, Cloud Linux, etc) and Windows shared hosting servers have Windows as their operating system.

As mentioned above, the user must pick the right web hosting platform depending on comparasion and what programming language they are using, which script will work with which server, and what platform was used to develop your website/application. For instance, if your website/application was developed using an open source or a different coding language, then Linux will be a good choice. However, if you developed your website/application using .NET framework or any other Windows-based too, then Windows hosting is a better choice.

Best Enterprise Hosting Service Providers Of 2019

Hosting has been around for as long as the internet has. It is the reason why we are able to view and visit our favorite webpage/websites.

It is a New Year, and companies all over the globe will be seeking to try out the best enterprise hosting options that 2019 has to offer. But before we can fill you in on top hosting platforms, it is imperative that some light be shed on what enterprise hosting is all about.

Enterprise Hosting Defined

Any company seeking to purchase internet space in order to facilitate its online business is enterprise hosting. A good enterprise hosting service will encompass the following aspects:

  • The level of server infrastructure in place
  • The ability to scale
  • The ability to withstand growing traffic/internet load
  • Tools that come built-in and
  • Lastly, the level of customer support

All of the above points serve as a winning combination for any company on the lookout for nurturing its presence online or, just starting out in the cyber sphere.

Types Of Hosting

There are two major types of hosting service namely; Managed Hosting and Shared Hosting.

Managed hosting is a server specific to any company and comes bundled with regular updates, automatic backup creation, and speed optimization via CDN with strong security and scaling options. On the other hand, shared hosting, as the name implies is when multiple companies’ data is hosted on a single server.

Naturally, the latter is a cheaper option but calls for manual updating of the service, backups are not automatically created rather is available through third party plugins. Moreover, security is of a relatively poor standard and packs slim to zero optimization for speed or database. Also, has limited options to scale in the event of traffic surge.
