So you’ve designed an incredible website using WordPress or other quality software. Your business is ready to go. How do you make sure your website launch reaches your target group? How do you ensure visitors can find your site and know that it is a secure environment?
Website hosting is big business and not all of these services offer the same value for money, quality or security. We have put together a long list of tried and tested hosting apps to make your selection of the right web hosting tool much, much easier.
Hosting providers vary widely. Your choice will depend on the type of website(s) you have created, the number of domain names you have, which software version you use and the amount of traffic you aim to achieve. You will also need to consider whether you will use a shared hosting service or are prepared to pay for the privilege of dedicated hosting. It is always possible to upgrade at a later date should you prefer to start small.
Hosting services need to be very reliable. If a provider is down at regular intervals you will lose a lot of potential customers and even existing clients. Your chosen hosting provider also needs to offer a wide selection of features so you can add apps and widgets to your site(s). If you are selling services or products, your hosting provider is required to offer e-commerce support to enable SSL certification and one-click shopping. With all of these extra features, you will appreciate a provider who is also user-friendly.
Our list includes various web hosting options and all of these are rated and reviewed to make your choice an easy one. We have also supplemented this list with budget providers should you prefer to invest as little as possible during the early stages of business development.
