Not All Web Hosts are Created Equally

While recently helping a local non-profit with some upgrades to their WordPress site which we had set up for them a while ago, we ran into an issue with one of the most popular plug-ins not being compatible with their host GoDaddy.com.  We also noticed that the site was very slow.

Upon further research, the plug-in authors even state that some shared hosting sites, including GoDaddy, will have problems.  Needless to say, at this point it is probably easier to just find a more suitable plug-in rather than go to all the trouble of changing hosting services but if they did want to change, we would recommend either 1and1 or Blue Host or pay close attention to the recommendations from wordpress.org.

We would love to hear your comments!
