We've been very unhappy with our experience with Liquid Web so far. I think it's time to move on.

What are some alternate companies that provide solid, responsive managed hosting for dedicated servers that you all would recommend?

Thank you.


They are most likely popping up more now because the support at LW is not what it used to be.

Calling on the phone is pretty much useless as now support is farmed out and the odds of the person you connect to being able to help are pretty low. Every single time I've called in the last couple months it always results in the person opening a ticket where as before 9 out 10 times when the support was not farmed out the tech could fix it before you hung up.

Are there any hosting companies out there that still offer customer support that is not farmed out to a 3rd party?


Size matters.

When a hosting company grows big, their priorities and the very workflow change to accommodate and perhaps to accelerate the growth.

You might want to consider getting on with a smaller provider. They are the ones usually excel at support (and grow big later).


Have you tried a smaller provider, like webflow or WP engine? They aren't really common but being used often. Quality is quite good. You may also try cloudways or hostwinds if those won't fit you.

I see that they advise you to work with Webflow. I agree, he's really cool. But, unfortunately, it has disadvantages that can sometimes interfere with work. One confusing system of tariff plans is worth something.


The Bigscoots technical team can help you with everything you need. Their plans are concise and quick to implement.

Thus, Bigscoots is another option for a specialized demographic group that likes to do multiple projects at a low cost per project. For instance, you can include a $1 fee per GB of storage in the total cost of your web hosting server. This is ideal for enthusiasts with changing requirements.

However, newcomers must demonstrate a high level of dedication. With shared hosting plans, you may have an account specialist who will monitor your services. A specialist will monitor the entire migration procedure and install any additional trinkets that you wish.

What really makes him worthy of a recommendation is his long-standing commitment to accessibility. Not cheap enough to sacrifice quality, but with a commitment to the level of the plan you have chosen.
As for pricing, you should know that every plan does not have a set price. It completely depends on the intended purpose.

As a result, there is an hourly pricing model, which is great considering how much functionality can vary on a cloud server. In addition, we offer marketing, website management, customized web design and SEO marketing. Yes, and at a cheap price.

Bluehost since time immemorial. In short, their main focus is on WordPress. The servers are very well optimized for running WordPress code and even for providing managed services.

GoDaddy plans have the least amount of resources and provide the least scalability. However, what you get demonstrates that good things do come in small packages.
Boutique-managed VPS plans offered by the firm provide either root access or cPanel access, automatic backups, software updates, and uptime monitoring.

GoDaddy has spent over two decades perfecting the art of customer support on a large scale for new VPS customers looking for modest terms and lots of hands.
