Do you know of any issues running your software at wpengine.com?

 

Since developers have restricted access to various configuration components at wpengine do you have any documentation on how to get around that to implement your software?

Are you stuck with wpengine who are notorious for controlling server configurations?

Yeah, not a fan of them either (for this type of site) because they limit certain types of caching, etc. Love their model BUT they control too much for a system like this from what I've discovered.

Who do you suggest as a good host for a WordPress site with RETS Pro?

I believe they're currently offering different versions of RetsPro + hosting for a solid price. May have to ask about current offers for that as they vary monthly.

 

As a third party host, we've used Amazon (no cpanel and more tech intensive) and currently use A2HOSTING (great options for shared hosting). Feel free to follow our link to give us credit... but there are other good ones out there too. http://www.a2hosting.com/refer/85764

Thanks for your suggestions, Dave. Thanks for also mentioning in another thread that Siteground does not allow PDO extensions. They were on my list of hosts to consider.

You're welcome. Yeah, we tried them too... siteground that is. Good host overall for basic WP sites. Just not as flexible. 

 

If you sign up for the basic A2 shared and add a few speed items, you wont be disappointed. We have used dedicated and their higher end version. Need tech support - just call them. They are GREAT. Based in Michigan (anne arbor = A2). I asked :)

Okay for the record wpengine is not compatible due to they either they don't allow crons or they wont beef up the php.ini (I can't remember which one but you must have both options )

Dave,

 

Please PM me. I tried your link to A2 Hosting, but your referral code appears to get removed when I arrive at the site.

Thanks for thinking of us as a referral Fran. Sorry for not hitting ya back sooner - battling a cold. Ugh. Personal msg didn't work when I tried to send to ya. So replying here. Our link should work: http://www.a2hosting.com/refer/85764

If you sign up, I can always call them later and let them know. It should work for ya. I think they code it in the backend for the order. So if you completed an order, thanks!

They are a great group too. Can call them anytime with an issue and they're on it.

Dave

Dave,

 

I don't know why, but I'm not able to send a PM. I was hoping I could receive one. Would you mind sharing with me which A2 Hosting plan you're using?

 

Fran

I know - I tried. I have the Turbo one. Have 2-3 other clients on it too. You can chose the base one and upgrade from there. A good add-on is the railgun once you're live. That's a great tool. And if you get serious traffic, you can add on the performance bump too. We are working with them to get the memcached component working but that's been a plugin issue we're trying to resolve. Actually have their support working with us on it - very good team over there. Once that's done, I can share results with you in case you're interested in the future (that's the last think to worry about for your site).

 

Hope that helps.

 

Dave

My favorite paid hosting service is LiquidWeb.  Very responsive.  For dedicated servers I highly recommend www.quadix.co and we have one dedicated server and plan to add more.  We cancelled our A2 Hosting service.
