    I am not sure why it would be slow. Have you tried contacting their support? Joomla should not be slow unless it has something to do with the server being overloaded. If the design or template has issues or bad code I guess that could cause it to be slow as well... Technically any host should be able host Joomla with out it being slow!

    You should increase your hosting budget if you want more performance. Read your TOS regarding unlimited space/bandwidth. Stay away from budget hosts if you want performance. The less a host charges the more clients put on a server to make the same profit. This means slower performance and less reliability on average.

    There's no such thing as unlimited.
    Get a proper host with clearly defined plans then you'll find you're unlikely to get slow sites.....unless you go to the bottom end of the market obviously.

    Yeah, it is not an easy think to find a good web host that is fast and stable. can suggest gigapros cos I am glad to use their service. it has litespeed server that provides fast speed connectivity. I have noticed that it can be suitable for running Joomla websites..

    Guess it can be useful for your request.

    I thought you wanted fast speeds?

    Seems like you just want cheap!

    I'm sure unlimited everything for $2 will be an experience.

    Never used them, but you are still looking at budget hosts. They typically come and go and are hit or miss in regards to performance and reliability. If you up your budget a few dollars a month you will be much better off.

    Note that $2.45 price is only for a 5 year commitment.

    $2.45 p/m when you pay 5 years - total: $147.00
    $2.95 p/m when you pay 3 years - total: $106.20
    $3.45 p/m when you pay 2 years - total: $82.80
    $3.95 p/m when you pay yearly - total: $47.40
    $5.95 p/m when you pay quarterly - total: $17.85
    $7.95 p/m when you pay monthly - total: $7.95

    Interesting marketing.

    You get what you pay for... You want your site to run smoothly, not be down all the time and be simply a good experience for you. Then up your budget more then looking for cheap or free. This forum is loaded with people that use hosting companies that actually provide the service you are requiring. Depending on your usage, space needs, BW needs, etc. I would recommend looking at a hosting company that gets good reviews on the board or via google searches. Everyone likes to tell about their experiences and why not read a few before deciding.

    What people here are saying is true, shared cheap hosting will not give you the speed factor as they overload there servers and it only takes 1 person to make everybody's website slow.

    If you want reliability I would recommend in a host that does not give unlimited but enough traffic/disk space or try for a VPS or Dedicated Server.

    Agreed however when CPanel or Plesk is on it, it make it simpler. A lot of my web design clients use VPS and find it not so hard to use.

    A budget host would be one that subscribes to the idea that web servers, email servers, ftp servers and database servers are just software and can be run on one physical piece of hardware (box, if you will). They would also consider the lack of education a good thing, considering that their hardware / network can be setup from information they pick up on the net from Google and paying for anything professional upstream is a waste.

    The staff, if any, of a budget host would be a useless copy of the leader so they don't cost much.

    The budget host will offer the lowest price for their product because they have limited or incorrect definitions for such words as profit, service, economy, growth, etc...

    Really most companies offering web hosting as their primary product fit the above description to some degree. Any that do not conform to the above standards would not be considered budget hosts. Yes, there are hosts that hold themselves to lower standards than those described above.

    Analogy: Bicycles and luxury automobiles are both modes of transportation. Budget hosts are the bicycles of the hosting field.

    Have no fear, you can still host Aunt Tillie's blog or your Internet marketing scheme through a budget host. Most hosting consumers hold their projects to far lower standards than those required for budget host status.

    Why would he want a VPS for 1 Joomla site?

    Offtopic:

    I would suggest change your CMS or get a site built. Joomla has tons of exploits released everyday. So if you are looking for long run, I would suggest you re-consider.

    Total nonsense....stunning first post!

    I've worked with Joomla since it's inception in 2005 and with Mambo for 3 years before that!

    When you consider at this moment in time I have over 300 live sites out there (including one that I built for NATO), and over the years I've probably built over a thousand of them.....I have never had a site compromised.

    Like any application it has to be maintained and patched....and just because some numbskull on a one click Fantastico installation never bothered, it doesn't make the application itself a security risk. It makes the owner a security risk.

    Let's not offend someone by saying "non-sense". May be it didn't make sense to you beacuse you have not been in the scene of security? Probably all you do is develop. Give it a thought.

    Check out sites like exploits-db. I have been a security consultant for over 6 years now. SO I don't blame you for your ignorance, its just that you haven't been "there".

    You presume too much! 23 years in IT, 13 in web development.

    I speak from real life experience of business not trolling on internet forums.

    Take your exploit revelations over to the Joomla site....I'm sure your vast six years of experience will turn it round for them.

    Hey....and you better mail Porsche and the UN that they're at risk as well.

    I stand behind Xtremo on this one; Joomla is a fantastic product and in the hands of a professional just as secure as any other product on the market.

    As a security consultant you may want to dig a bit deeper in technology as making a fool out of yourself by making accusations you base on nothing more as exploit database, which are by the way full of exploits of ANY program you are probably using, including but not limited to the web browser you use to read these messages, besides how is this helping the OP with his question?.
