My BuddyPress Hosting Recommendation

  • Bowe


    Hi BuddyPress Community,

    Just wanted to let you know that I’ve written an fairly extensive hosting guide for those wanting to learn more about which webhost to pick. It does not review individual providers but gives you a good overview of the available hosting types available, so you can make a better decision. You can read the guide here:

    I hope this is useful for some of you 🙂

    Hi. I’m the guy.

    I would note the fact that he states that the CEO issued personal apology and reimbursement for the migration issue, thats seems like at least they took the issue seriously at some point.

    Only after it reached the front page of Hacker News (they didn’t really seem too fussed otherwise). My favourite part is where Jason Cohen — not having read my rant at all — called me “bitter and hateful” and a “hater” on Twitter.

    WP Engine is the only company that provides both phone support and specialized wp hosting as far i know.

    The phone support was as useless as the email support. I know, because I stayed up late for several nights. My favourite part is that my sites would go down most of the damn time, I would ring and I’d press the number to get urgent after-hours-on-call-right-away-sir support … and nobody would answer. You know what my favourite sound is? Two minutes of ringtone on an international call.

    This happened several times.

    It is also the only hosting company i know that Automattic is financially involved in, to me that means something

    Argumentum ad verecundiam is no guarantee of good service, as I discovered.

    aside from any deal killing kind of quirks is the best platform

    My “deal-killing quirk” was believing their marketing copy: that they could migrate and host mainline code, including multisite. They couldn’t.



    @ubernaut :

    “In my experience the notion of a perfect host is a canard….but WPE aside from any deal killing kind of quirks is the best platform you could be hosted on”


    So there is no perfect host… and WPE is that host.

    Got it.

    And anyone who has a host that provides better servers, better tech support and cheaper rates is what? lying?


    I suppose we’ll have to agree to disagree then




    Gentlemen, I’m going to close this topic. Thank you all for your feedback. There are alternative hosting solutions for WP/BP installations.
