WordPress Hosting recommended by WordPress
I kinda just had a big argument with a client and I need to vent a little, after setting up a blog on Pair.com on my reseller account, the client rings me and asks which preferred wordpress hosting company did I chose. I asked “what did he mean2 and he pointed me to the wordpress hosting page, at which I laughed out loud.. yep a proper belly laugh, I told him that’s not a recommended list it’s an affiliate list they earn money from those links..
This is where the argument started I pointed out that “some will donate a portion of your fee back—so you can have a great host and support WordPress at the same time.“, It’s basically an affiliate deal, but the client knows best,and wants me to sign up to the host and setup the blog, I say ok, but it’s going to cost another $100 time and effort, or he can set it up and ftp the the site for free… which is what he decided to do.. I’m not going to name the host he went with, but guess what ? it all went wrong and now it’s my fault because it was my idea to use wordpress !! now they want to look at drupal.. I said good luck! and that he should complain to wordpress that their WordPress Hosting deals aren’t that good !
