Suggested Hosting For WordPress

Our clients often ask us, "what is the best hosting company to use for WordPress?". To make things a little easier for you, we created recommendations to help you choose the best hosting plan for your WordPress site.

Website load and up and downtimes are essential to your SEO rankings. That's why choosing the right web hosting is critical. The first step is knowing the type of website you have. The three types of websites we will be covering are standard, WooCommerce, and custom websites.

  • Standard WordPress Websites are sites just starting up or are already live and well-visited.
  • WooCommerce is a free plugin for WordPress online store websites. This plugin includes numerous helpful features like inventory management, tax management, safe and secure payment options, shipping integrations, and order tracking.
  • Custom Websites are more robust and uniquely designed and developed to your company's specific needs. These are websites with a user experience that requires complex features and functionalities or a website that needs a dedicated server or a virtual private server (VPS) solution.

We have created a sorted recommendation for each type of website to ease the stress of choosing the right hosting for your website.

Where Is Your Email Hosted?

When choosing to migrate from one web host to another, you need to ensure you know where your email is hosted. Some hosting plans include free email accounts that are part of your hosting plan, so once you cancel your hosting, these email accounts will no longer exist. It is important to know if your email is hosted as part of your hosting plan or if you pay separately for your email service at a host like Google Apps or Office 365. If you are having trouble figuring out where your email is hosted, contact us, and we can assist you.
