Asko P. Research for my new project: what are some cons and pros you've found with shared hosting providers?
Mark Dain Main pro can be the hands-off approach; the hosting provider takes care of updates, security, support and all the things you don't want to have the hassle of dealing with. Resources are enough for what you need and a lot support more than just Apache/PHP nowadays. Main con is the fact hosting providers never update software, don't patch for security holes and they all have dreadful support. Worst of all, you're often limited to something stupid like PHP 5.2. If you write your website in anything else, you'll need a VPS/similar to host it without going insane.

Asko P. I'm building a nice little shared hosting platform / company on top of DigitalOcean VPS's and was wondering where to put the most effort for people to be happy. I suppose support and up to date software are the biggest things indeed.
