GoPBN launched in late 2016 by hosting professionals. They are by far the most expensive host so let's see if they can justify the price.
You can select locations on where you want to host. They support WordPress, Joomla and Ghost and have a simple deployment process.
Nameservers are big brand (ClouDNS, Durable DNS, Digital Ocean).
Their plans start at $5 for 1 blog. GoPBN is by far the most expensive provider reviewed. Even with 100 blogs, you're still paying $3.5 per blog.
Some IPs are owned by known hosts (Vultr, OVH), but most are unknown that we've never heard of. Nameservers are good - big brand.
Server headers are the same, default pages are the same and MX records are setup the same. That's definitely a red flag for us.
Unfortunately the sleek look of the website and dashboard doesn't translate into good user experience. You need to go through a cumbersome detailed checkout process, with registration and email verifying.
Once you're in, the process to deploy blogs is pretty simple but once that is done there is not much automation - no backups, updates or 1-click logins.
GoPBN is by far the most expensive service we tested and there is nothing that justifies the difference in price with other hosts.
