Host Gator vs. GoDaddy
We are currently running four client BP social networks and online communities on a Host Gator VPS Level 4 plan. The plan costs us $80 a month with a cPanel and the configuration is a 2 ghz CPU, 1.3 GB RAM, 59 GB HD, and 1050 GB of bandwidth. Host Gator’s support has been fantastic. Yet their entire network of servers has gone down twice (for an hour) in the past three months.
For $90 a month, GoDaddy offers a similar plan, VDS Premium. Yet the server would be double the CPU (4 ghz), double the RAM (4 GB), and double the bandwidth. GoDaddy claims that they guarantee a less than %1 chance of downtime. Consumer reviews state that GoDaddy’s support is poor.
So, do we remain with Host Gator? Or should we take advantage of the speed and bandwidth of GoDaddy and sacrifice Host Gator’s exceptional support?
Also, thanks to W3 Total Cache, our sites and site activity are moving pretty fast. You can view one of our client sites to get an idea of the speed.
Is it worth investing in Amazon’s AWS services for a CDN?
