Magento Hosting
Aldis Āboliņš,

I found it important to find a good Magento hosting. Previously, I tried some of the hosting providers that introduced themselves as special Magento-configured hosts. My experience there was not very successful. Then I found ... More it at Simple Servers.
Right now I'm at Simple Servers for 6 months.
When you tell them your needs, then you will receive the right offer. They will not try to sell the most expensive service, but just what you will be the best choice.
At Simple Servers, it's very easy to make a Magento installation. One click. Magento's performance is great even in a shared plan.
After some time, I needed to migrate my web site from the shared hosting plan to the cloud. It was a very fast migration. Very good explanations and support from the Simple Servers team.
Keep up the good work!

Great Support and Price

I've used Hostwinds for nearly 2 years and they have been excellent during my stay. However, I am looking at leaving because they have IP issues, mainly, some of the major (Gmail, Outlook, MSN, etc) ISP's block email traffic,... More claiming it's SPAM. Apparently, they have some SPAMMERS on their servers and some IP blocks are blacklisted. I have been forced to get a Gmail account so I can send outbound emails, which is a major pain. I've raised this issue with tech support too many times to count but the problem persists. I'd love to stay with them but I have to move on. Less

Terrible hosting

Terrible hosting. Even one Wordpress site does not work on the "Ultimate Business" tariff plan!!! The support service does not solve the problem! When I don't use the site, the RAM is not used. As soon as I work with the site... More , I do elementary things: creating a new Wordpress page, adding a product, then the RAM is working at maximum and the site gives a 503 error. This can't be on a simple Wordpress site. Your hosting works disgusting! Less
