Hi All, 

Not sure if this is the right forum to post, but I found hosting related questions only in archieves which were very old. 

I want to know which is the best hosting service provider for high scalability and customer service.

Depends on what you can afford and what you want or what your site needs.

 

There are a lot of good and bad hosting providers.

From my experience, the worst is Hostgator. I wouldn't recommend any service from this company.

And the one I am using now is

Hi Spaninet, 

Thanks for your response.. 

I am looking for a stable VPS with 99.99% uptime and something with a bench mark of handling load of few thousands of users at a time. 

All images will be stored in AWS S3 and no videos will be uploaded, only youtube links can be shared. 

Donna used to suggest a hosting provider which she mentioned that even this community is running on the same, however I am unable to find it now.

These are the Hosting Providers recomended by phpFox.

Digitalocean in my experience is good.

I use digital ocean and like it very much. I see a new app in the fox app store for DO storage spaces as well. I love their snapshots and backups. It saved me hours of agony as I am still messing with a fairly new setup of phpfox. I think I will end up using DO and a CDN like AWS or Wasabi in the future once I incorporate video uploads and a remote redis cache server.

Dear Srny,

I have worked with many clients, so I know what hostings our clients are using the most, I'd like to share you that, It's the hosting provider https://www.phpfox.com/hosting-service/

You used phpFox and also their hosting service, it's perfect, I recommend you

Furthermore, you should also use Amazon S3 to store resources for the best performance.

Kind Regards,

Since most of them provided positive feedback about "digital ocean", I am planning to go with it but want to know which VPS server will be best suitable. 

In the recommended hosting service providers, I see that Hostico is there too - https://www.phpfox.com/recommended-hosts/ 

I had VPS 1 (CPU - 2 cores, RAM 2GB, Disk 100 GB, 2 TB transfer) with them untill last week and upgraded to VPS 2 (CPU - 4 cores, RAM 8GB, Disk 500 GB, 6 TB transfer )

I was just setting up the site by adding groups manually one by one and it has been throwing " 503 Service Unavailable error"" and it is extremely slow too. I also get downtime notifier every now and then, support team says they see no issues and I need to upgrade, I have already upgraded from VPs 1 to VPS 2 and see no difference. 

Can you please recommend a decent VPS plan in Digital Ocean?
