I really hope someone from Godaddy can contact me if they read this.
So here is my story.
I am a 5yrs old Godaddy Customer. I do websites for a living. In Panama. Yes, central america.
At the beggining of my carreer, i used to develop static flash based websites.. I loved godaddy prices, tech support was light, but acceptable, and i learned to feel comfortable around their website (purchasing domains, hosting plans , etc).
As time passed i moved to wordpress.. Discover how wonderfull it was. And suddenly all my nightmares became a reality.
For the last 6months i have had terrible speed problems. y wordpress sites, as SMALL as they are, can take up to 20sec. to load during daytime (that is EASTERN US TIME or GT -5). At night, sometimes, i get decent speeds. But as soon it is 6 am .. slow again. .. i am talking about over 30 sites, in the deluxe shared hosting plan.
Sites with and without any plugins. Sites with WP-SUPER CACHE... Custom made designs in valid CSS + XHTML ... sites that are made with amazing , super optimized themes as INFOCUS from themeforest.net....
ALL SLOW .. but HORRIBLY SLOW ...
You dont have to be a genius to know that , most of their customers are from this hemisphere.. so traffic rises during day time, and since it is a shared hosting plan with , only G´d know how many other websites in the same domain, you can expect slower velocitys than night... But 20-25sec load time for a 120k site with NO plugins? ..
My customers are calling me everyday and it IS a nightmare for me.
It is because i am SO USED TO godaddys way of doing business that i am scared of moving away. but it is starting to be unbearable.
I have done some research, now i am positive the slowness is due to having the MySQL db in an external server... somehow the traffic overload does affect the whole thing.. it is HORRIBLE..
Please, if this doesnt get erased .. i hope someone WITH a lot of experience can point my toward a PROOVEN hosting provider that offers quality and FAST wordpress hosting.
I really appreciate it ..
If someone from godaddy read this .. feel free to contact me , because if this can be solved, it will be great, but beleive me .. as soon as i find out about a good and fast worpdress hosting (prooven with testimonials from web developers) I AM OUT OF THERE.. and i have a LOT of websites in GD.
