“I just learned that my current host, WebFaction, is to be bought up by GoDaddy. I guess I’ll have to move… yet again: TxD—>Joyent—>TxD2—>Kaizen Garden—>WebFaction—>??? ;-( 99% likely that ??? will be Pair Networks. Already some stuff there.”

+1, although I’m not sure if Pair would be a good choice as it says very little about what each package offers.

And
this review is very positive

any concerns that we should be aware of?

It says nothing re subdomains, how many domains, php version(s), mysql versions, ssl, sftp, etc.

Re: WebFaction joins GoDaddy

I say this as someone who rolls my own hosting for my own projects, and recommends proper hosting companies for my clients: look at Hetzner and see if they’re right for you. I have numerous clients hosted with them, and they’re all happy with Hetzner.

It’s very expensive for those needing an SSH which in my view, provides, the easiest and most full-proof way to back-up and/or upload a largish db which in my case, it exceeds 79Mbs.

Re Pair Networks… Support writes:
Shared plans allow unlimited domains and subdomains. The current default
PHP version is 7.2, but 7.1 and 5.6 are still supported as well. MySQL is
version 5.7 and 5.6. All accounts are SSL enabled. Both SFTP and FTPS are
supported, as well as SSH. What other features are you interested in?

Re: WebFaction joins GoDaddy

Something official is now posted on the webfaction blog but once again specifics are lacking: https://blog.webfaction.com/2019/01/godaddy-sso-a-single-login-process/

It hints at a complete transition but isn’t as outright/up front about it as the migration screen is.

Thanks for the tip. Looks comparable in price and service to all-inkl I mentioned earlier. I’m fine myself with German, but how’s the support in English?

I saw that too. With “all-inkl” SSH is available at the next lower (10 €) price point. I haven’t had a 79 MB database to handle, though.

If you have access to a) a macOS computer and b) a calendar, you should be able to schedule and undertake your own database backups with SequelPro – exporting an existing database can be done with sane breaks in the SQL syntax (for example, every 1MB) so as not to overwhelm a server with limited resources.
