I have used BB with godaddy and host gator in the past and I began having time out issues, so I stopped using the plugin as I could not get any back ups completed on larger sites. I did like the plugin when it worked for migration and I see there is a list of hosts you do not recommend for the plugin. Is there a list of preferred hosts that work out of the box with back up buddy?

I have a host gator reseller account that I originally set up as ithemes recommended Host Gator at that time. Now they do not seem to be on the preferred list. I have a bunch of buseiness sites I would like to protect with BB back ups, who would you recomend for hosting?

Hello Sanch,

We're recommending Site5 as a preferred host. Below is a link to an article explaining some of the reasons we make this suggestion.
