What's Important with a Website Host?
With and increasing emphasis on website load times in search rankings and website usability it is more important than ever to make sure your website loads as fast as possible. Your website load time starts with how fast the server responds to requests and having a cheaper host like GoDaddy will result in sluggish load times. Hosting with premium hosting providers such as WPEngine and SiteGround will instantly improve your website’s performance with their faster servers and built in caching and CDN options.
Is your website vulnerable? Hackers are always trying to find vulnerable plugins to be able to access your website. An additional layer of protection can be found with premium hosting providers who have an advanced firewall protecting your website. Daily backups provide peace of mind so you can always quickly restore your website if an issue does arise. Many hosting providers also provide free SSLs that auto-renew so you can securely collect payments and form data from your visitors.
When choosing a hosting provider you should always consider the support offered. Many hosting companies do not offer phone support and will direct you to creating a ticket which can take days to resolve any issues. Other hosting providers like GoDaddy will give you a “Not My Problem” response when it comes to many common WordPress issues. Premium hosting providers offer live chat and phone support to resolve any issues as quickly as possible and can assist with a wide range of website issues.
