WebFaction was one of the hosts recommended to me. I tested it and a handful of other hosts today, going through the account creation process, the process of setting up multiple sites and databases, and speed testing the results. WebFaction’s control panel made the website set-up and management process easy and still gave me the sort of control and access I wanted but took me off the hook for server security patches, etc.
My testing indicates the site is loading much faster than it was on the previous Linode box, but if that isn’t the case for you (or if you see some other issue) I’d like to hear about it. Thanks!
