    And to launch such instance in their cloud - at least medium skills are needed...
    It is definitely not for all.

    ParkingCrew uses Amazon... and they are frequently under DDoS... when the parked domains are down.
    So Amazon is not something special in terms of quality/reliability.

    Wait, that's the 1st year. Forgot about the free tier. Assuming it may go up to ~$48 per month next year.

    You can get a totally free 1GB VPS for a year, and if you want more they just apply the credit for the value of the free VPS (which I think is around $8 per month).

    256M VPS for $2/mo.
    Absolutely enough to run own scripts and basic websites...

    Switched from GD shared hosting, that I had for years to HostGator because they had a deal going on.

    I switched because GD had gotten really slow and I thought HG would be better because I used them for some of my client's sites a few years ago and they were good.

    I am not happy though because HG is much slower than GD.

    Probably too many sites hosted on my server.

    Both the old GD hosting and the new HG hosting are/were shared.

    I'd love to compare that against my 4GB VPS out of curiosity. I wonder how it would run my WordPress site.

    WordPress CMS is traditionally slow and resources hungry...
    But 4GB is unnecessary even for WP.

    I found that 4GB was perfect for me. Any lower RAM had sluggish performance. I run about 8 WordPress sites on it.

    Bro.. one does not just "jump ship" from WordPress. I'm heavily into the platform and have spent a lot of money on themes and plugins, plus I'm very satisfied with it. I know it's a bit bloated and not the most efficient, but it's also highly supported.

    4 / 8 = 512M per site in your case.

    Tons of themes and plugins exist for Textpattern... and it is a few times faster than WP.

    I'll certainly check it out, but I don't think I'll be switching to it as my primary CMS any time soon (y)

    I used WP... and I don't like it in all aspects.
    Just CMS for blondes... in short.
