    Hi guys

    I'm looking for a reliable hosting service that has:
    - Unlimited websites option
    - Let's encrypt free SSL
    - and preferably, classic cPanel

    All of these were available at Siteground's Growbig account, which I've used for 2 years, and were absolutely satisfied, however they having a tendency of increasing their renewals year by year some significant amount of money, which I can't tolerate anymore.

    I tried Hostinger's premium account the last few days, and I've already issued a refund. They are beyond terrible.

    So I would ask you guys, if you know anything close those above requirements, please share with me.

    Thanks
    Kris

    It probably won't work for you...no unlimited website option but, I tried all kinds. I like digitalocean.com best. $5/month for cheapest plan. Can upgrade anything very easy, tons of upgrade options. No cpanel though extremely to setup with 1 click installs for many things including wordpress. Only a few steps to get going, follow a guide and 5 minutes you got it.

    I was just checking them out. Looks appealing. Do you know does that SSL for one name only, or multiple?

    Hostdrive.com. Have used them for about 10 years. Awesome customer service. EVERY ticket has been handled quickly, no downtime to speak of.

    If you are looking to keep your sites as fast as possible, it's important to have SSD storage. A lot of the cheapest ones don't have SSD.

    That's a rather good advice I wasn't considering. I've just done the SSD conversion on my laptop so I can see why it worth it. Will keep it mind for sure.

    Yea, the HD is the slowest link in any system/network.

    I am using StableHost, absolutely happy with it - unlimited domains, cPanel (one of the latest versions, frequent upgrades), high uptime (there were a couple of major outages during a few years I'm using them, but that happens everywhere from time to time AFAIK), excellent support, more than reasonable pricing. Additionally, it might be possible to find a promo to get the recurrent discount - at least I've managed to when was setting up the account.

    If your like me and you have technical/programming experience renting a VPS and setting everything up yourself (Issuing your own SSL certs, setting up your own web hosts, etc) is probably the cheapest way to go. If not I would recommenced host gator. Iv'e used them before and they make everything super easy to manage.

    The Advanced Plan from Eco Web Hosting UK has I think everything you want, but the price may not be at level you are hoping to find. I have been using them for 10 months and can confirm that their integration of SSL LetsEncrypt is easy and works perfectly. On the advanced they also use SSD exclusively (I think).

    The Business (or above) plan at HostPapa also have LetsEncrypt (I used to use them, but not since they have that feature) - I just checked and they indicate SSD. I did find their service excellent, and for 3 years you can lock into a great price (past that,like many, not so great). When you set up multiple sites on one plan, I prefer the way Eco Web Hosting does it, but not sure if enough for the price differential.

    Good luck with finding what you need and want!

    ps here is a link to the web hosting services that support LetsEncrypt

    The best I found so far:
    https://www.cloudways.com/en/?id=51227
    (includes affiliate link - use promo code WOBLOGGER to get free credit & try it)

    Works best in conjunction with Google cloud (quite expensive) or Vultr (quite cheap).
    You can't really beat their speed and ease of use.

    Hawkhost offer all of this on their shared hosting plans.

    https://my.hawkhost.com/aff.php?aff=8326 (my aff link).

    I've used them since 2012, one issue in that time that was caused due to storm damage. Excellent support.

    In terms of speed with an optimized site and caching etc I usually get a score of 92/96. You won't get better than that on shared hosting imo. I haven't tried their dedicated services yet.

    I can't recommend them enough.

    My budget is $200. I would migrate about 5 websites, and I constantly building new sites for myself, one of my goals this year to have about 30 websites done by the end of this year. So calculate with about 20 as a realistic number.

    At this point I'm being spoiled for choice, so many great recommendations.

    I am using VodaHost. Great customer service. $95 per year, but another $100 per year for SSL certificate (including install). They'll give you about $40 break for multiple SSL per each. Good luck.

    Results so far from the above recommendations just the summerize things up:

    hosting1.png

    HostPapa Business Pro ticks all requirements at the lowest price.
    Bluehost's 60 month offer could be a great choice for securing up hosting for 5 years. (the most appealing even though it exceeds my budget)
    Third is Hawk Host Professional

    I left out cloud services from the list as I have no experience with those, and I affraid they would place me on a learning curve that would eat up more time and money than I'm willing to sacrifice.

    Thank you very much everybody

    The one thing I took away from my own research was to avoid services operated by Endurance International at all cost. BlueHost, Host Gator etc. They have a shoddy history.

    hostiso.com is your best bet. I use them. Little or no problem at all.

    I ran away from Hostgator. To me, their services is horrible and expensive.
