A good web hosting service is the foundation of any website. Get your web host wrong and you’ll be continuously plagued by issues like site speed and security that will cost you badly in terms of time and money.
If you are starting your web business for the first time, it is absolutely imperative that you get off to a great start with the right web host.
If you are unhappy with your current hosting provider, you can always switch to a different web host. But don’t worry! Changing your web host doesn’t mean that you have to spend more time and money. And, it doesn’t even have to be a complicated affair.
I Needed a New Web Host
After my previous experiences with JustHost, TMD Hosting, Dreamhost, Hostgator, Inmotion and Bluehost, I needed a web host who really stood out from the crowd and was yet affordable. I also needed a web host that had:
- A good reputation
- Server reliability with good uptime scores
- Server upgrade options
- Speedy delivery of web pages
- An easy-to-use control panel
- Site backup features
- Clear account suspension policies
- Good security features and most importantly :-
- Solid support
My search narrowed down to 2 options – SiteGround and WP Engine.
