Looking for new dedicated server
Hi all, it's time for me to move to a new host. Again. My needs are relatively simple.
PHP, MySQL, https (is that just a given in 2020?), rapid scaling to a more powerful server (if/when needed) and... competent support.
I define competent support as attention to details and an interest in making my server run well for my needs (which aren't unique, this shouldn't be hard). When my site runs slowly I would like a tech to answer why rather than respond with "its running fine now, try it again!" I'd also like a company that will look at a waterfall from Pingdom and explain to me (I'm not a network guy, just a programmer) why each item is taking as long as it does and suggest strategies to improve load times.
So, can anybody recommend anyone? I'm leaning towards a larger company (like Bluehost) that might have the resources to answer these questions more efficiently as I'm kinda done with smaller hosts.
