So I bit the bullet a few weeks ago, got premium hosting in iFastNet, and I’m slowly starting to regret it.
I took InfinityFree as an intro to iFastNet, and the migration as the natural growth step to take, but I’m realizing now that that’s not very accurate. Even the auto-migration was something I could (should?) have done myself.
Googling a bit it looks like iFastNet seems to be among the cheapest, but I don’t see glowing reviews, and I suspect that I’m getting what I paid for. The support is scarily bare-bones, there’s some support pages that look seem to be well over 5 years outdated… in comparison this forum is incredible.
I’ve already spent too much time trying to save money, and I should probably start moving towards paying more so that I can faff around less. Maybe I could have jumped to some other premium hosting instead of iFN, and maybe I should still do it. Has anyone already gone through this migration, tried other hosting providers, decided on something else?
My use case is a wordpress blog with maybe a few dozen articles, mainly text, no monetization, not expecting many readers (1000 per year would be probably a lot). Should be on the simple side of the spectrum, I’d hope! But even writing in the standard Wordpress editor has caused iFN to go over IO limits.
I considered a fully managed hosting like wordpress.com, but the prices are hard to justify.
