Small Business Web Hosting 2018
What is web hosting?
A web host provides the technologies needed for the website to be viewed online, and stores your web files on computers called servers. Examples of well known web hosting companies are BlueHost, GoDaddy and Siteground. I’ve used them all and my experience has been that Siteground is the best.
Web Hosting Recommendations
1) Set up your own siteground web hosting account for your website, or 2) I’m happy to host your site on my siteground account.
Set up your own siteground web hosting account
I recommend this option if you prefer maximum control and don’t mind taking the time to learn how to set it up, get it set up, and keep it updated. There is a little bit involved in setting it up properly for a WordPress site, particularly if we need to change PHP variable settings depending on what theme is used. Im not trying to scare you away from it. If you are technically inclined, and have the time, their support is good and Im sure you can handle it. It might be a headache for you, and it might not. No big deal.
Allow me to set up your site on my siteground web hosting account
I recommend this option if you dont want the hassle of dealing with it yourself. It often saves time. Your site will run much faster on my siteground account because I purchase an expensive, fast hosting package. No I won’t hold your site hostage. Im happy to provide you a download of your site files and database, and if you ever want to move the site, I’ll even migrate it for you. Either option works for me.
What if your site is hosted by Godaddy, Bluehost or one of the other hosting companies?
We can point the nameservers to siteground. I dont recommend building your site on the other hosts because your site will likely run much slower, there will likely be more problems, it will take longer to build and tech support is not as good etc…
