Goodbye One.com – Hi Inleed.se

I have been running this site on One.com for a few years. Yesterday I moved it to Inleed.se. Details about the moving of wordpress are found here.

On One.com

One.com has served me well. For a hobby non-profit site with a couple of dozen visitors per day the smallest package possible was fine (at about 50 Euros per year, including a domain).

A few weeks ago One.com informed me about new packages, and my little plan was being converted to the new little plan. At first it seemed fine: same price and more storage space (I use very little).

However, the day after the upgrade, I could not SSH into the server to edit a few files. It turned out SSH was no longer included in the most basic plans anymore. In a market economy, One.com can package their services the way they want. But

  • I had a feature (SSH) since years, it was removed from me
  • To get this feature back, my costs were doubled
  • No long term fix for an old customer was offered
  • SSH costs nothing to offer, SFTP was still available, so One.com had put effort into making my little plan less useful.

I use SSH (and linux shells) for everything. Production, test, development, professional servers, hobby servers, workstations, laptops, macOS, Linux, Windows, configuration, programming, and other work. It is just unproductive to not use SSH to

  • edit text files (.html, .js, .php, .htaccess, and so on)
  • check and fix file permissions
  • pack/unpack files
  • manage folders and files

So, as a customer, after expressing my dissatisfaction and getting no long term solution, I vote with my wallet and find another hosting company.

On Inleed.se

I have been a customer of Inleed.se for a few days so I can’t really write a review. But what I immediately notice is that compared to One.com

  • cheapest package is half price
  • …and includes much less storage
  • I get a cgi-bin folder (I don’t think One.com offered that, but not completely sure)
  • I get more than one database if I need
  • I can use SSH 🙂
  • … and there some kind of Node.js support: very interesting, I need to look into it!

So far so good!
