With the Internet being so large and with millions of websites being hosted nowadays it’s important that your company has the right web hosting provider. In order to make sure that your local St. George business has the correct website hosting let’s go over a few tips and techniques that you can easily follow. As we go over these techniques of finding the correct website hosting many of your concerns should go away.
Are you over spending on your website hosting? Well let’s take a look. There are many different pricing options when it comes to website hosting, the first one is a virtual private server also known as VPS hosting. This is a good option if you know exactly what you are doing with website hosting because if something ever goes wrong you are the only one responsible and the only one capable of fixing it. The pricing does increase with VPS for multiple reasons. For example a mid-level managed hosting company might be under $100 and a dedicated VPS could be over $100 per month. If you are running your own business and just need one server then prices will dramatically decrease.
What we actually recommend with website hosting is to go with the managed word press hosting company. Why do we recommend a managed word press hosting company? The reason is simple. With managed hosting they take care of all the technical details for you so that you can spend more time on your business and less time on the nitty-gritty details. Here at St. George web design.com we actually use managed word press hosting which means your website is completely taking care of by us.
You will not need to purchase website security software, worry about word press or plug-in updates at any time. St. George web design.com takes care of you 100%.
A few other things to keep in mind is the bandwidth of your website, as well as your website speed. Website speed is critical did you know that if your website takes more than three seconds to load it’s really bad for your users and also can have a negative effect on your SEO efforts?
We recommend checking your website speed online, there are various tools you can easily use. We recommend having a website that can load in under three seconds that has a fast website speed. If you just have one website then of course it’s easy to have a faster site because the server isn’t as bog down. If you have a number of domains it can have an effect depending on what type of website hosting you have. Here at St. George web design.com we have our own dedicated servers for each individual website so that you never have to worry about your website speed.
What if something happens to your website? Is your website being backed up continuously? That’s another thing we take care of for all of our clients. A reputable host will do daily backups of your website this is something we take care of for you. Let’s say you are editing your site and something terribly wrong went wrong with it. All you have to do is give us a call and we would completely alter your website changes and put it back to how it was before you started redesigning the site. Would like to add that this is something we do absolutely free. You do not have to buy any extra plug-ins or services at all. Of course you could use something like backup word press which is a basic word press plug-in. But these typically cost about $80 or more per year. If you have a number of websites and are wanting to back all of them up that can get pricey.
Another really important thing to take in mind and to consider is your website hosting support. 100% of St. George web design.com clients have free website hosting so if there are any issues with your hosting we take care of it for you. But if you have a different website hosting company we do recommend looking at some of these following options. How hard is it to get a hold of the company if your website isn’t pulling up? Do they have good technical support or only email support? Make sure that when you find a website hosting provider that they have great support and definitely a frequently asked questions page that you can look through.
Please keep in mind that there is a difference between word press website hosting and other hosting providers like Go Daddy, blue host, host gator, flywheel etc. We recommend flywheel because once again they are a managed word press hosting company and we have never had a single issue with them whatsoever.
