First of all, I believe magento is #1. The key is the magento system requirments and the good magento system configuration. When you go with Goddady then you do a wrong way here since Goddady have no Magento Hosting package.
Magento Hosting not like other hosting, it require a heavy system and if you want to make it work fast you have to configure everything perfect. For detail about magento system requirement you can look at here: http://magentohostsolution.com/magento-system-requirements/
I can say RAM 3Gb is more than enough for hardware requirements, but not only about RAM what can decide everything here.
For siteground with SiteGround Magento Hosting package, if you are going to host only one site then you need to choose plan StartUp, if you want to host many sites then the GrowBig is better. My experience is GrowBig will be easy to handle 10k visits/day, if more than that you need to choose larger plan.
So key to make them as my favorite hosting provider is they know exactly what magento need, they know how to make magento work fast and they even provide caching solution in shared hosting too.
Hope it help you choose the right hosting. If you think my sharing experience is good then you can use my link to buy, I am very appreciate it: http://magentohostsolution.com/solutions/siteground/magento/ . Thanks
I’ve seen a lot of discussions about the best hosting for magento without mentioning what plan to choose. I looked at SiteGround online and they have multiple choices, shared, cloud and dedicated.
I know that dedicated is the top and i can choose it, but do i really need it?
I am paying now about $70 for GoDaddy for their VPS (with 3GB RAM) and i cannot get my site to work fast.
You can visit and see at dressmeupny.com.
When we checked, the RAM used is 100% and the DB size is 520MB.
Can someone guide us please? I am starting to feel bad that i migrate to Magento, but the online articles says Magento is #1…
