Liquid Web

LiquidWeb is web suited for small and large companies as they offer VPS and dedicated servers, from small to very big servers if you need lot of CPU, RAM or disk.

Pantheon

This is a good solution for a small development team who is supporting a site with many users. Many times, a shared hosting service is appropriate for a small business brochure site that gets a few hundred visitors per month, but if your site services user accounts that return or rely on information, this is a good option to rollout new changes and preserve existing data

Cons

Liquid Web

  • Initially, the managed Wordpress platform had a few bugs, but it seems to be rock solid now.
  • One-click staging-to-live feature.
  • Improve reseller margins.

Pantheon

  • Sometimes the use of WP-CLI and Terminus (command line tool, not the marketing software by the same name) is necessary to complete a task when there ought to be a way to do that task via the UI
  • Sometimes Dev and Test URLs can leak into Production sites (and vice versa), requiring database UPDATE queries to correct. I'm told this is being worked on.

Alternatives Considered

Liquid Web

The only other serious contender was DigitalOcean. Media Temple and GoDaddy are both terrible. While I liked DigitalOcean and the amount of flexibility it offered, we opted for a managed solution to lighten the workload for us. So, in the end, we picked Liquid-Web and we have been extremely happy with their service.

Pantheon

We use whatever platform best suits our clients in terms of use-case and pricing, but Pantheon's UI is preferable to our team, and the platform is generally inline with our typical approach of building distributions from an upstream codebase instead of creating and managing a multisite with multiple databases powering individual sites.

Return on Investment

Liquid Web

  • Lower investment in server setup, maintenance and troubleshooting
  • Higher efficiency of development and deployment with reliable tools
Chris Putnam | TrustRadius Reviewer

Pantheon

  • Rapid deployment of feature and security updates from upstreams takes less time than installing by hand.
  • Automation and integration through Terminus CLI is extremely useful.
