Hi Kreesher. Compliments of the season to you.
I checked my hosting account and my WordPress access is OK. Could be that I set up my WP differently - manually with my own databases and uploading the script through the File Manager. I hate the Softaculous installer. Like usually it is reliable, but if it is reset for any reason, or not renewed (which I think could be a possibility), then it effects your access to the installation.
BTW you should really try out the hosting from @fitkoh
as well. You can PM him here at @fitkoh
. I was totally blown away with his free panel, that runs better than cPanel and the functions it has are more intuitive and work super fast. It has a WordPress installer on it that is blazingly fast. Mostly because fitkoh has set up the hosting with mysql running remotely on its own dedicated VPS. But on the same node as the web hosting.
I think it may be a good idea to have a backup shared service. So I value both @binil
and @fikoh's services very much. @binil
has the 5-star royal cpanel hosting. And @fikoh's is very interesting, almost genius in how he has set it up. His principle is minimalist and free. Even the domain for his hosting service was a freebee dot.design domain. He runs the database from WebMin. So this was the first time with setting my WordPress up that I haven't used localhost. The WordPress installer is fantastic, but I did the manual installation to get a feel for everything. File Manager for me is even better than the one for cPanel - it has everything one needs and no need for FTP. To keep things minimalist and also secure Fitkoh has no FTP, e-mail or DNS installed in the panel. So this was also an interesting experience for me as up to now I was used to getting name servers from the host. I learned how to set A records with the domain registrar instead. Didn't even realize it was possible to do it that way, and was delightfully surprised, as DNS from Namecheap was much better than what I'd had from Contabo through Gigarocket. And Contabo's was always very good. Namecheap's DNS is just that much better than already very good.
