Joost de Valk Conducting WordPress Host Survey

Related to a new project Joost de Valk is working on, he needs WordPress users to fill out a short survey that tells him which WordPress hosting company you use, which package you’re on, and what you think about them.

  2. I have been using Bluehost for quite some time but recently set up a new site which uses Network Solutions. DO NOT use Network Solutions!

    Thanks for reading,
