Unless you are experienced in managing and optimising a hosting environment, we suggest you leave it to the experts.
One thing, above all else, is true of website hosting.
Everything is fine with it until it’s not.
If your website goes down, it’s very unlikely that a prolonged period of downtime is going to be acceptable – even for the most basic of websites.
With DDOS attacks on the rise, even against the most unlikely websites or servers, it’s crucial that your site is hosted with a company that is optimised both for WordPress hosting and for security.
Cheap hosting is counter-productive.
When you’ve invested a significant amount of time and money into your website, why host in on some pile-it-high, sell-it-cheap hosting account.
As your website is your 24/7 marketing machine, we really don’t think that hosting it on a $5 per month budget host is the right way to go.
We host the vast majority of our client’s websites on WP Engine as we’ve found (from over 20 years of experience) that these guys are one of the best hosting platforms around.
But they are not cheap, and there are good reasons why.

Some hosting companies pile their sites high on servers. Your site could easily be sat on a server with hundreds of other websites.
Any one of these sites could take the entire server down at any time.
Any site owner could get the entire server blacklisted for spammy practices at any time.
A single site could become the target of a DDOS attack at any point, taking down every website on the server.
Managed hosting services do not allow their servers to run over-quota, so there are plenty of resources for each site and everything is more stable.
If your website is mission-critical, or you are looking to host a corporate website, uptime is important.
When the sh*t hits the fan.
One of the things that really, and we mean really separates hosting companies is the level and speed of the support that is offered by the hosting team.
Managing a WordPress site is a completely different skill set from managing a hosting environment, so we advise all our clients to invest in the best hosting they can afford.
If there is a mission-critical issue with your website, you need it fixed now, not in 48 hours.
This is where server support teams come in, and WP Engines‘ are the best we’ve ever worked with.
