Web Hosting Matters. Choose Wisely.
Are you happy with your web host? Does your site run quickly or slowly? Are you losing traffic and sales because of downtime? Do you have backups of your site in the event it goes down, or worse, gets hacked!? Do you have an SSL certificate so you can confidently and confidentially send content via your site or accept payments? And is your hosting support great?
There are many things to consider when selecting the a web hosting company. There are so many choices available, a ton of bad ones, some that are just ok and a few that are great. With prices from free to lots of dinero, how do you choose? Having worked with tons of different hosts, there are a few we require clients to move away from. And there is now one that we are proud affiliates.
There is one web host we will refuse to work with
If your website is on GoDaddy and you decide to work with us, we will request that you change immediately. There are myriad reasons why GD sucks ass and you can read about one reason why I will never refer clients to them. I have many more examples how they completely lost me and my referrals but I don’t have time to waste to spread bad news.
