Why is great hosting necessary?
Not all website hosting is created equal. There are a few different types of hosting available. Prices can start a few dollars per month and go up to hundreds or even thousands per month.
Most people start with a shared hosting plan because it’s very affordable. It really is perfect if you are just getting started and don’t have a large audience. Shared hosting is great because it won’t break the bank. The MAJOR downside to a shared hosting plan is that if any site on that shared server gets compromised, your website will be vulnerable or may go down completely.
Shared hosting plans are not what you want to use if you are hosting client websites. You want a reseller plan or a dedicated server for client websites to ensure they stay safe and operate fast.
Don’t underestimate the importance of a rock solid host. Sure there are cheaper options available, but they don’t offer what these hosts offer. A2 has some very basic shared hosting options that are great to get started and they make it easy to migrate into a more dedicated hosting plan at any time.
Who are the top hosts of 2019?
There will always be people who think one host is the best, while others think that same host is the worst. This is 100% based on my experience alone. I’m sure there are other great hosts, but I’ve put these two at the top of my list for the following reasons.
- Excellent Customer Service
- Fast Site Speeds
- Great Value (Not Just Price)
We have used both Flywheel and A2 Hosting for a number of years. They have been excellent partners and have never dropped the ball with a single site we developed on their servers.
To me, that is the mark of a truly great web host. If I have ever made a mistake while setting up a new website, their team has been available with a quick solution every time.
The value these two platforms bring is huge as well. Both offer single site or bulk plans that are perfect for getting started or growing a freelance web development company of your own.
