Web Hosting Recommendations

Our recommendation for Web hosts is based on the following factors, ranked by importance.Click here to see our recommended hosts list

  1. Reliability: Low or zero downtime. If a host has a lot of downtime, speed, affordability, and all the other bells and whistles that it might offer are useless, your website has to be available first, and then you worry about speed and the other stuff.
  2. Speed: We can't stress enough how important it is for a website to load quickly, if someone tries to access your website and the website takes a while to load, that someone will most likely change his/her mind and move on to visiting other websites. In addition, search engines like Google penalize websites if they are slow to load, your website will rank lower if it is slow.
  3. Affordability: It is more important to have a reliable host that provides fast servers, but it is also important the host does not charge you a bundle to host your website. Fortunately, the majority of websites are simple enough to host on a shared plan where most hosts offer those plans at extremely cheap rates. For example, you can get a very powerful shared plan for less $10/mo. You will also find plans for $2-$3/mo, those plans are usually very basic, they limit you to 1 hosted website, limited disk space, and limited bandwidth, it is better to invest few extra dollars a month and purchase a plan that allows you to host unlimited number of websites, with unlimited disk space and bandwidth.
  4. Free SSL Certificates: SSL protected websites are becoming more than the norm, some search engines such as Google will penalize your website ranking if it is not secured with an SSL certificate. Most hosts are now offering Free SSL certificates (Let's Encrypt) as part of their plan offerings, so make sure the host that choose to host your website offers these certificates for Free.
  5. Free Email Accounts: When you host your website, you will want to be able to provide your visitors with an email address they can reach you by, preferably one with your domain name in it, the majority of hosting plans do offer Free email accounts, just make sure the plan you purchase actually promises that it does.
  6. Some type of money back guarantee: It is good to have some kind of guarantee when you purchase a hosting plan. After signing up and paying for many months in advance, you want to make sure that the host you purchase the plan from offers some kind of guarantee that you can get your money back within specific period of time if you're not satisfied with their service.
  7. Automatic Backup would be nice: Most hosts will not offer this service for free, but it is important that the host you choose DOES have that service available even if you have to pitch in few dollars a year for that service. We can't stress enough how important it is to have a backup of your website and data in case of a catastrophic failure of the server your website is hosted on, you will then be able to easily restore your website and data from the backup.
