Google has pulled it’s plug on its business website builder in a few countries Africa, Nigeria, Kenya, Indonesia, and Malaysia.
Google announced that they are withdrawing their support for the google business site builder and all the websites built on google site builder will be no longer accessible from 15 march 2015. This means that including me, thousands of small business website owners and webmasters are forced to rebuild their websites using different site builder and they have to look for the web hosters who can support their website platform.
That’s how my hunt for reliable web hosting companies started. When it comes to choosing the site builder, this time I am going with globally popular WordPress website builder which is supported by most of the hosting providers.
After asking around and googling for hours and reading reviews about web hosters, I have decided to stick to local Malaysian web hosters, mainly for the support I can get technically.
Among the local web hosting providers, I have narrowed down to 2 popular ones which are Rocksoft and Exabytes.
Rocksoft is my current hosting provider. My experience with them for the past 2 years is pretty good. The websites are up and running 24/7 as promised by them.
And though Rocksoft offers a low priced hosting plan, the winner according to me is Exabytes.
- Customer care services are more professional and their response to technical queries are very clear, which assures me to put my trust in their technical expertise
- Exabyte offers money back guarantee, which shows their confidence and their determination to satisfy their customers
The puzzling part for me is, why Rocksoft which is hosting thousands of Malaysia online business websites has not taken any steps to retain their customers by marketing their current promotional offer in their website. Only when I called them I was informed about the promotional package offer.
Also, their response to my various queries were not addressed well with sound technical knowledge.
Here is my SLICE of sharing,
If you are looking for a hosting provider to run a website which is a simple/ static site, you may choose Rocksoft because of its low-priced packages.
If you are expecting to have a high traffic website with E-commerce and web apps choosing Exabytes will be a wise decision.
Any other experience/suggestions to share?…
