  2. I really enjoyed listening to this podcast and Josh is always good value for money.He made several good points and also one in particular that really chimed with me ~ about the difficulty of making a sensible decision because its so hard to find reliable information about hosting companies.

    I build and install WordPress sites on super-fast Nginx webservers on DigitalOcean for all kinds of clients, but sometimes I can sense they really aren’t at a level where they can make the switch from cheap shared hosting, to a VPS solution. So then comes the question “well where should I host then?”

    Steven Gliebe’s HostingReviews.io [http://hostingreviews.io/] is my solution to this problem ~ and don’t be surprised that the rankings here are drastically different from what you see on virtually all other hosting review sites. Why? No affiliate links are used.

    P.S. And notice how Pagely’s score is not too shabby!

  4. @ Jeff – spectacular response. I do my best, but at times I want to reach for my baseball bat. :)

    1. Which is one of the reasons I can’t listen to most of the “code” podcasts. I just don’t understand the need to lace a talk with foul language. I’ll choose something else to listen to.
