    Looking for shared host with an Atlanta DC

    Hello all,

    I'm on the search for a good, reputable host with a DC in Atlanta. I ask that specifically because I get blazing fast speeds from the ones I've found from shopping around. The problem is that I haven't been able to figure out even from searching (mixed results) which company would be stable to stick with.

    Also, having a managed VPS service for future upgrading would be great as well but not absolutely required.

    Could any of you good people help me find a good home for my sites? I'm not concerned about budget, quality and performance first.

    Thanks!

    A while ago, I was a WireSix.com customer (collocation only). I don't see it mentioned on their site, but I think if you reach out to the W6 team, you might be able to get shared hosting from them. Certainly a VPS for sure.

    Thanks to everyone for replying, you guys are a big help!

    I have looked in to these hosts and they look great. I am curious though if any of you would know why a host wouldn't allow a Wordpress cache plugin? I was a bit confused at a hosts AUP by that.

    I have a small site consisting of a Wordpress site and phpBB forum, nothing heavy.

    That's from WHB, right:

    We do not allow any WordPress caching modules since they continually cause server overload problems and are only allowed on VPS or dedicated hosting.
    I don't know if 48-14 or any of the other Wordpress-specialising members here have anything to say to explain why they might say this.

    It seems to me that Wordpress caching plugins (carefully chosen and rightly used) can reduce server load. Sure, you couldn't use anything that depended on memcached, but any cache plugin that uses the file system would, in the long run, make for less database and file-system access, which is only for the good.

    That might make me steer clear of them if I was planning to use Wordpress. There are plenty of other types of plugin that cause big resource problems, but if the site gets busy one standard thing to try is to use a caching plugin to keep resource use down. If that option was closed off from the start, you'd have little wriggle-room if your site started having to work too hard.

    That is really weird! Be sure to ask the host about it before you register.

    Thanks again, every time I go host shopping, it feels like strolling through a jungle and hoping I don't get bit. Haha. So many great hosts but specific things all at one host is hard to find sometimes (for me at least).

    Yes, it is WHB. They seem GREAT, I love their plans and packages, just don't particularly want to disable my cache plugin. Absolutely nothing personal to them, I just spent an entire day optimizing my site. I feel like it's made a pretty sizable improvement and would rather stick with it and move forward. I have no doubts that any site would still perform well there though.

    I've found a few but sales replies have been being 16-24 (sometimes more) hours and while I understand sales comes second priority to support (as it should!), it does worry me about how fast support replies could be. But I won't judge, I can't honestly know if not a client.

    Our AUP is a little outdated and is getting a revamp next week. You will be fine with the major caching plugins. Sorry for the confusion
