Acquia

Acquia is well-suited for any Drupal web platform. I think it best plays in the enterprise space, either for B2B or nonprofit/higher ed/government. Acquia is a great solution for smaller web platforms, as well, but the price is typically prohibitive in these scenarios.

SiteGround Web Hosting

In my testing, SiteGround consistently exceeds its uptime guarantee of 99.9%. Over the first four months using my plan, Pingdom reported monthly uptime figures of 99.51%, 100%, 99.93%, and 99.99%.I can’t take these as a wholly accurate measure of SiteGround’s uptime, because Pingdom only checks my site every 5 minutes. So if my site goes down for a second, Pingdom can’t record it as less than a 5-minute outage. And I’m only looking at one server, so there are bound to be variations. But even at face value, the downtime I’ve experienced has been minimal. If you do experience downtime of more than 0.1% annually, you’ll be compensated as follows: 99%-99.9% uptime: 1 month of free hosting. Every additional 1% below 99% uptime: 1 additional month of free hosting. Most hosts measure downtime monthly, not annually, so beware of this slight difference.

Cons

  • "Scheduled" maintenance windows are often non-negotiable, vague and too abrupt.
  • The support escalation is slower than would be expected from a provider focused on enterprise availability.
  • The platform is rigidly composed in a way that serves Acquia's need to serve a wide customer base, and is thus sometimes not ideal for your use case.

  • Plans don't offer a lot of storage, bandwidth.

  • With SiteGround, you pay a bit more for a bit less in the way of technical features, but the solid security, customer service, and tutorials make this Web host extremely friendly for small businesses and new webmasters.
