I am looking for shared web hosting , i got many options to choose from , meanwhile i like this

Try Pantheon

I'd recommend Pantheon. Shared hosting can be problematic, Pantheon has a great platform that's tuned for Drupal at around the same price.


Thanks cstauffer

I will surely check out that but pricing looks it starts from $25 but in inmotion pricing starts from $4 to $10

The amount of money (or time) you will have to pay due to issues with shared hosting will more than outweigh the extra cost for Pantheon.

Try Pantheon

You can try for a period(1+ month?) Pantheon for free, and get an idea of how well it meets your needs.

A few factors

Your decision should be based on a few factors, one of the most important being the type of site you plan to host. Is it eCommerce? Will it receive mega traffic? Or is it just a brochure site with very low traffic? Is up-time mission critical?

I've been using shared hosting for many years and it's worked out just fine for me, but all my sites (all Drupal) are either for development purposes or simple brochure sites, no one is going to freak out if the site goes offline for a few minutes once in a while, nor is anyone expecting the site to load with blazing speed. If you want that kind of perform and reliability, you had better go with Pantheon or Acquia, if the site or sites isn't mission critical and saving money is, then shared hosting might be a viable option.

If you do decide to try inMotion, let me know how that works out for you, I'm thinking about switching from my current host (IXwebhosting) due to rising cost and lack of quality service.
