We look after 100s of websites and over 20 years, we’ve used pretty much every hosting platform you’ll have heard of.
This means we have experience of the WordPress hosting environments, speed, technical support and actually using these hosts for lots of different sites – from small brochure-style websites to large corporate mega-sites.
Here’s what we know about cheap hosting providers.
Speed is ALWAYS an issue on cheap shared servers.
Your site will be hosted on a server with 100s of other peoples websites.
This means your site is vulnerable to any errors or problems caused by 100s of other people.
The technical support is not great.
Fancy waiting 24 hours for a support response to a question to only they be told it’s the developer’s fault rather than the hosting?
This is a favourite of cheap hosting providers – they keep you waiting forever and then tell you the problem is your own fault (when 99% of the time it’s not).
In order to get effective support from these people, your request has to be escalated above the initial support agent (who knows nothing) and this can take days.
Great if your site is down. Hosting is COMPLICATED, the least you can expect is to speak to someone who knows what they are doing.
We can move your site to our dedicated WordPress servers. Our hosting starts from less than £30 + VAT per month, and there’s no charge to migrate your site. To get started, call Dave or Charlotte on 01295 266644 or complete the form.
