    Have no experience with Texo, but I have moved all my sites away from Afrihost to Hetzner.

    How will you measure performance and speed?

    If you are asking this question, I would assume that you are talking about hosting a normal small wordpress site, hence my question.

    Yes i am...I have done everything to make sure my sites are fast and optimized as much as possible. Yet site performances are not quite where we want it. Someone suggested that it could be the host that I am with. Hence my query.

    Thank you for the information. In this case, I would suggest Domains.co.za . Else, why not look at getting your own VPS, then at least you know you are not sharing server resources with other people?

    If you only want to test, PM me and then I will test host on my server for you and you can check.

    I can recommend Web Telecoms - the hosting control panel is latest Plesk Onyx though.

    Everyone that uses Cpanel, should have free SSLs. Stating that you have free-ssl is just a sales gimmick.
