StableHost.com Shared Hosting Review (3 years & still positive)

Big on Hosting. Unlimited Space & Unlimited Bandwidth
I’ve been with stablehost.com for 3 years now on the smallest shared plan. It is by far the best host I’ve ever had. Uptime has been at 99.999% (I have all my websites monitored with http://monitor.us). The speed has always been very fast, even on my active forum website.

But most importantly, the support and service has been phenomenal. Ticket response time has routinely been 15 minutes or less, all hours of the day. I’ve had hosts in the past where my site went offline between 2am – 9am and no one was there to fix the problem or respond to my ticket.

Whenever they perform an upgrade, they give you lots of advanced notice. And even then, I haven’t seen any upgrade that actually resulted in my website being offline, everything has been really smooth.

They even send out emails when your WordPress version is out-of-date and open to security vulnerabilities.

I read a StableHost.com review here about a dude complaining his website was “hacked”. Unless you read every line of code in a WP plugin, you have absolutely no idea if there is a back-door in there. If you’re running an e-commerce or for-profit website, I would highly suggest using the least amount of WP plugins as possible. As well, you may want to stick to premium/paid plugins, or even develop them on your own. You can have absolutely no expectation of security if you don’t do your due diligence.

My WP website was hacked before too, because of a backdoor in the NextGen Gallery Plugin (hint: everyone and their cat was using that plugin at the time, and we all were “hacked”).

As a web developer myself, with years and years of experience, I know without a doubt that the team at stablehost has some of the best network admins in the industry. The way they’ve run the company the duration that I’ve been with them, it is clear that they know what they are doing. And from all the experiences I’ve had throughout the years, with many many hosts, I can tell you that is hard to find.
