Kinsta WordPress Hosting Review (Kinsta vs Guru)

Last year I received an email from Kinsta asking me if I would do a review of their WordPress hosting, which I agreed to do, so here it is. I would first like to clarify that despite being asked to write this Kinsta WordPress hosting review, it has not been sponsored, I have not been paid or offered any incentive whatsoever, so, like all my reviews, it is completely unbiased and based on my actual first hand experience. For the purposes of this review, I will be using my current host Guru for...

Review: CleanBrowsing – DNS Content filtering

Deploying an effective parental control solution is hard, in fact it seems to be getting harder as technology in this area does not seem to be progressing to cope with the ever-growing number of internet-connected devices we have in our home. In my house, we have over 25 internet-connected devices. Multiple Amazon fire devices, tablets, phones, games consoles, and PC's. All of which I have to make sure are kid-safe by default. In the case of my Fire TV/sticks, there is no simple solution, as...

Review of guru.co.uk WordPress hosting

GURU is another host which I am seeing recommended more often on my WordPress groups, as usual with lots of positive feed and great reviews on Trustpilot, but nowhere near as much as the likes of SiteGround, which is easily the most popular recommendation. So in my quest to find something better than SiteGround, Guru were next on my list.

WPX Hosting Review

I have been considering moving on from Siteground when my yearly hosting expires (read my siteground review) and decided to give wpx hosting a try, so here is my wpx hosting review.

Wpx hosting seem to have almost too good to be true reputation, with positive reviews everywhere and they boast that they have superior WordPress performance and support compared to all other WP hosts, and the reviews do seem to concur, especially this one.

SiteGround Hosting Review

Back in 2017 I decided to give SiteGround WordPress hosting a try due to all the great reviews they have on TrustPilot and elsewhere, so I thought it was a safe bet, but sadly the opposite turned out to be true. Here is my Siteground hosting review, detailing my 10 months of hell with this terrible hosting provider. Side note, I have also since learnt just how untrustworthy Trustpilot is too. Things did not even start out good with Siteground, I was given wrong advice right from the outset,...

SiteGround vs Flywheel WordPress Hosting

SiteGround vs Flywheel WordPress Hosting

Flywheel I have had several websites hosted with  flywheel for over 1 year now, and I literally have no complaints about this provider. I have not had a single problem with the sites or the service or the support. The only issue I ever had was that the speed was not as good as it should have been, and when I queried this I discovered that some performance settings were not enabled for some reason. So what I have learnt over this last year is that you do need to have some technical knowledge to...

WordPress Hosting Reviews

GoDaddy HostMedia SiteGround Krystal   For websites and clients that need the best possible speed and performance for WordPress and are prepared to pay extra for it, I tend use FlyWheel, who are up there with the best of the best when it comes to WordPress hosting.  But for those small, simple, low traffic sites this can be a bit pricey, so I have been on the hunt for another hosting provider that had decent performance for WordPress without costing an arm and a leg. I was originally...

Trustpilot, is it just a big scam?

It is well known that we, the consumers, trust recommendations coming from peers or fellow consumers much more than we trust what businesses are telling us about them. Therefore the businesses selling social proof are very powerful and they can easily manipulate our thoughts on any brand. Yelp even won a court settlement recently, giving them permission to legally manipulate ratings. Both Yelp and Trustpilot claim that they don’t manipulate the truth, but when you take a closer look at the...

EdFirst (aka School Supplies Service) – Unethical Telesales Practices

Dodgy unsolicited sales calls are pretty much the norm these days, and we tend to take them from granted, those of us who are savvy do not fall for them, but sadly there are still plenty of people out there who do get scammed and swindled out of their hard-earned cash by these tricky sales people. The more of us that document these scams and companies implementing them, the less effective they will be as more people get into the habit of searching online first for reviews. I had a phone call...
