Hey, I just need a little advice. I currently host 3 different sites with Globat.com. I've been with them for about 5 years, and have really liked them. Uptime is good, support is ok, and the value is unbeatable. More space and bandwidth than I know what to do with.
The problem I think lies with their database support. Only recently (within the last year) I have converted 2 of my sites to the Wordpress blogging software. It's perfect for my sites, and I love the options it offers. And it's free! It relies heavily on a well-running MySql database, and Globat seems to be suffering in that area. My wordpress sites load extremely slow, if ever at all! I submit support tickets, and they get it fixed, and it works for a day or two, then goes back to it's old ways.
So my question to you is this. If I switch web hosts, will I have similar problems with my database-driven sites? Is there a host out there known for good database support? I've wanted to try Bluehost, because they're also cheap, and I've heard good things about them. But I just don't know.
Then, if I do switch webhosts, I wonder how hard it is to move all my data! Databases, media files and such. Just hope it would go smoothly!
So what are your thoughts?
