William, Freehold, New Jersey – Don’t. Just don’t. – I signed up because they offered a seemingly good deal and they came recommended on a blog. For small issues their support was very helpful in resolving them and their services were just like any other hosting company’s. However, a few months in, my website would crash without any changes in traffic or changes to the website itself. This happened every few months and every time the techs would say it is the fault of my website optimization. But there was no logic in that claim

    It really sux that ASO has already changed their signing up procedure since you made this video.  It's still easy to follow along, but geez, it's only been a few months.

    Most robust and powerful file manager for wordpress. You can upload, delete, copy, move, rename, archive, extract files. You don't need to worry about ftp any more. It is really simple and easy to use. Just install the plugin following standard wordpress plugin install process and visit your dashboard. You will find a side menu called file manager. Just click on it to open file manager.
