4Good Hosting Review

Advanced web solutions for the technically-savvy website owner 

4Good Hosting at a Glance

This Canadian web host focuses on providing high-level technical solutions for website owners.

If you’re looking for more complicated server environments and more control over how you’re setting up your website, you might want to check out 4Good Hosting.

Uptime

4Good Hosting is about as good as the other hosting companies I’ve reviewed on this website. I did not experience problems with downtime, however I did experience some issues with sluggish loading.

This means that sometimes when loading the website or adding new content it would load significantly slower than other times. My website wasn’t generally slow, but I did experience some times where it was frustrating to open the website up and get into the WordPress dashboard.

Besides this of course, I have had a good experience with the Uptime and servers with 4Good Hosting.

Customer Support

Given that they are a more “techie” focused company, admittedly the service and support team did represent that. This took some time to get used to but they were friendly.

If I have a criticism it’s that I would like support to reply faster to my inquiries. They were helpful and friendly but a little slow.

Also, bare in mind that you have to pay for automatic back-ups. The good news though is that it’s per GB and pretty cheap. When compared against some of the other companies I’ve reviewed, it ends up being a fair amount cheaper.

In Conclusion

Check this company out if you need enterprise level solutions. For most other needs, there are better options but they are definitely one of the better Canadian hosting companies and this is why I included them in my list.
