What should you look for in a WordPress hosting company? There are 3 things that make for a solid hosting company:
#1. Reliability. Without reliability all the rest is useless. Also, if you’re hosting provider doesn’t have a contingency plan. Godaddy is the most reliable hosting company in the world with a 99.9% up time guarantee.
#2. Redundancy. If your site goes down in one location, Godaddy has backup servers just for that purpose. Seriously, what if bad weather causes your server crash? They don’t even bring the servers down for maintenance.
#3. Security. One of the more critical things you must measure in a hosting company is the level of security they enforce. Godaddy touts their security as the best, and rightfully so.
Here are 5 questions you might ask yourself when shopping for a hosting company:
#1. Do they give you the tools to help you grow your website? Godaddy does. It’s one thing to have a nice new and new website, but you need tools to grow it.
#2. Does support cost? Godaddy includes support for your hosting account. However, if you go with one of our packages we will support you. But it’s nice to know that we have Godaddy’s #1 support team behind us in case we can’t figure out what the problem is.
#3. What’s their Internet backbone? Godaddy’s backbone is the best, including multiple OC-48, OC-12 and OC-3 connections to the Internet.
#4. Are they redundant? Yes, Godaddy is. Godaddy has multiple servers that they host their websites on so if one goes down another one just picks up where it left off.
So if you sign up for one of our packages you’ll have the assurance that your website will never go down, will always be protected and will perform just like the big boys do. Let us and Godaddy carry the burden of poor page loading, lack of responsiveness, reliability and security. That way you can just focus on building your business on the web!
