When it comes to hosting get advise from everyone you know.
I switched hosting companies and have remained loyal to my hosting provider for 10 years.
Last year there was a security breach and one of my sites was spammed, and my files were corrupted. My hosting company advised that I needed to purchase security to guard against viruses and the like. I reloaded my files and bookmarked their comments. Why should I pay for security when they are entrusted with my sensitive data on their servers?
Last week, one of my developers tried to load a site onto my VPS server but he could not as the servers were set Centos 5.11 and it required an upgrade to Centos 6+. My hosting provider advised that I would have to purchase a new VPS subscription to accommodate Centos 6+ and there was no guarantee that I would be refunded. I paid for an entire year and they want me to subscribe to a new service? I talked to other hosting companies and they advised that they provided an upgrade to their clients or switched their clients to a new server that was Centos 6+ ready.
I am changing hosting companies based on advice from business associates but I thought everyone should know about the potential perils, and that everyone should consult with as many people as possible before commiting to a hosting service.
I am not mentioning the new service provider as the choice is simply yours to make, just be cautious.
