For a long time I am being using the Backdrop hosting on Pantheon.
- For every website you recieve three version – DEV, TEST and LIVE – with very convenient workflow between them. Code flows from DEV to TEST to LIVE, files and database flows from LIVE to TEST to DEV. I make changes in DEV. Copy the files to TEST. Copy the database from LIVE to TEST and thus can see how the changes will affect my main website.
- Not too cheap. 50$/month. It is too much for a hobby website as mine.
- The support of Backdrop is ... hm. Yesq they support it, BUT their support team does not know that. For this reason when I write to them I ask them as if I am using Drupal 7.
- I couln't find a way to put the configuration management into the version control.
So what are the other tested by you hosting alternatives for Backdrop CMS?
Do you use it on shared hosting? Linode? Or what is your experience on Pantheon?
