I've spent a huge amount of time and money (in the magnitude of years, and thousands of dollars) trying to find the best web hosting companies in the industry for business websites.
Here are links and resources mentioned in today's video. Enjoy!
I undertook this massive task of researching and finding the best web hosting companies because I was frustrated with bad customer service, unreliable hosting, and companies who were...let's say less than ethical in their business practices.
My online businesses and projects were suffering, so I decided to search out and find the best of the best. The good news is, while there's no shortage of low quality web hosting companies, we have plenty of great ones to choose from, too. Here, you're going to get some top recommendations.
And know that you really can't go wrong with with any of the hosting companies I'm recommending. I've rigorously researched every one. In fact, I use them for my various web projects. All of these web hosting companies have great pricing structures, have top customer service, and provide excellent reliability and security.
But, please remember to use my recommendations as a starting point. Investigate a few that you think might work for your business, and take a closer look for yourself.
Let's start off with Web Hosting Hub. They're a great choice if you're just starting your online business, or if you have very straightforward needs for your small to medium-sized business.
Web Hosting Hub specializes in providing low-cost, reliable, feature-rich shared hosting. So, if you're looking to keep your expenses under control, but also have solid hosting with lots of features, then Web Hosting Hub is a perfect fit.
If you're interested, I put together a detailed review of Web Hosting Hub's service. I'll link to it in the Show Notes below -- Give it a look!
Next, if you're looking for a web host that will grow with you as your business grows, then SiteGround is a great choice. SiteGround has a solid reputation in web design circles as one of the most popular, reliable web hosting companies in the market.
They specialize in offering a wide variety of hosting types, from shared plans starting at just $4/month, to dedicated, cloud, and managed WordPress hosting. All in all, SiteGround is a great choice to handle your business's web hosting needs, and they're also officially endorsed by WordPress, too, which is great.
A while ago I published a tutorial that outlines the process for signing up with SiteGround. You can find it down below in the Show Notes. Give it a look if you think SiteGround's a good fit for you.
My third recommendation is WP Engine. WP Engine specializes in providing what's called managed WordPress hosting. This means that if you'd rather focus on your business and have someone else handle the more technical aspects of your website, then this is a good fit.
Their premium hosting relies on robust, secure servers that can handle just about anything, including huge spikes in traffic. Plans start at $30/month with a 60-day risk-free money-back guarantee.
Further, each plan includes daily backups and site restoration points, hacker-proof security, and their proprietary auto-caching, which ensures your business's website will always run fast. No wonder top brands like HTC, Foursquare, and ConstantContact rely on WP Engine's superior service.
If you're looking for worry-free web hosting, where the technical side of your WordPress site is handled for you, then WP Engine is a perfect fit. And if this sounds like it might be right, take a look at the resources I've linked to in the Show Notes below.
