Really Impressed by ASPnix Web Hosting

I needed to move my blog to another hosting quickly, and I was puzzled about which hosting to choose. Since didn't have much time to evaluate a series of alternatives, I asked some friends for an hosting that had monthly billing and they directed me toward ASPnix. Since I had no time to evaluate alternatives, my plan was to move the blog on a cheap monthly plan and then evaluate alternatives. I chose  the Windows Starter Web Hosting. It costs $3.00 monthly but I had a discount coupon so I paid $2.20 for each month.

Since the host was really really cheap and it is a shared hosting, I expected performance to degrade, but I was really surprised that my blog responded really fast, it seemed faster than my previous hosting (a dedicated VM). After one month I was really surprised looking at Google Webmaster tools, because the decrease in response time was really huge and not just my imagination.


You can clearly see that the time needed to download a page decreased when I moved to ASPnix. I’m so happy with it that I’ve decided not to spen time evaluating anything else, and for $2.20 a month I can host multiple domains. Amazing. I never expected that a cheap and shared hosting would give me better performance than a dedicated VM.

I must admit that ASPnix really rocks!
