Anyone used WinHost?

Report Back to Forum Back to All Forums

I'm shopping for a host to forklift this site to.  I've been looking hard at HostGator and WinHost.

Can anyone relate experiences with either of these to hosting providers?

They are different. Winhost is hosting provider that mainly focus in windows hosting platform while HostGator offers both Windows and Linux platform. But, I dont recommend you to host with HostGator as they are EIG providers. If you only use simple website without any databases, then you can check asphostportal.com hosting plan. They are very cheap for hosting simple site. 

Good luck

Thanks for the input, Masterpiece.  I am definitely still looking around, although Winhost seems ideal. This site runs on a Windows platform with a MySQL database behind it, and their Max plan looks like a pretty good fit.

The only sticking point that I can see is that in order to get a static IP address, I need to get an SSL cert as well.  With HostGator, I can just kick in an extra couple bucks  to get the static IP address. Since this site just barely started paying for itself, I can't yet justify going to Verisign or similar and dropping $400 per year for a cert.  

grrrr.

Thanks again for the opinion, though. Anyone else got any thoughts on a Windows host? Someone who you prefer or who should be stayed away from?
