Between Exabytes, Serverfreak and Siteground, which is the best in terms of uptime on shared hosting?
And which one of them has the best customer service + support ?
And lastly, which one of them is the best in terms of response time?
I want to try to create a website as a part of my learning experience,
but almost all the review from Google always point me to International hosting company like Bluehost, Hostgator and so on.
However, if you want me to rate about the response time(Live Chat 24/7), based on my experience using all these 3 hosting providers, I would say:
1. Siteground (Countless support admins)
2. ServerFreak (Limited support admins but still manage to answer you at 3AM)
3. Exabytes (Limited support admins and most of the time you have to wait for their reply through Email)
I would say, PLEASE don't go to International Hosting company mainly due to Data-center is located outside from Malaysia region (which makes your site slower to load). It will have no issues for you to use them if you want to go international or if you want to pay extra using CDN.
If your target market is Malaysia only, you might consider the local hosting instead.
