WebFaction
Community site: login faq

I'm a long time user of Webfaction and was considering migration if it wasn't that I don't really want to go through migrating my Django apps and essentially investing quite some time.

Now one thing that I'd like to know, especially form Wordpress users is if they noticed any significant increase in performance on the new servers as that would be the major factor for me to push me to the new plan.

I won't speak for our users, but I'll chime in anyway. :)

Our newer servers, ie web120 and higher, use a different PHP deployment stack compared to our earlier servers (FastCGI instead of mod_php). We've found the FastCGI stack to be more scalable and robust compared to mod_php. If you're on an older server and are having problems with your WordPress apps or other PHP apps, then we definitely recommend that you try one of the newer servers.

Other than that, the newer servers have more RAM, bigger disks, and are, well, newer :) so you might see some better performance because of that, but probably not a huge difference.
