So far so good. Looks just like shared hosting. Uploading clientraw's every few seconds and it hasn't protested. I have had about 6 FTP sessions open at the same time with no errors. cpanel is pretty much the same. You can choose the version of php in cpanel, you may not want to go to version 7 if you have old php scripts. Secure FTP (ftps/sftp) may be extra, I don't how much. Support seems to be as good as before, note that it only took a few minutes to get responses to questions late on a Sunday night.

I may give them a try. I'm gone a few days and will give it a go when I get back. I'll check back here beforehand.  Thanks.

Iíve been with MDD since Erice went away.  They have been outstanding. Hope my $3.50 a month plan stays grandfathered.  We will see :)

MDD told me Sunday that current shared hosting customers won't be moved to cloud hosting unless they request to move.

Just was looking over WeatherDisplay Live. Is this what some have chosen over web hosting? Something I might want to consider?

It's been running for a week now with no problems.

Weather Display Live uses Flash, which is obsolete, for display in a browser. Support for Flash ends 2020, afaik, but lots of people still use it on their web pages!
