 – The Big Website Hosting Dilemma

The most common problem business owners contact me about is issues with hosting. Most website designers and service providers resell hosting to their clients.  The problem with this in most cases is that the hosting is the cheapest they can source, sold at the highest profit margin for recurring income from their clients.

I’ve stood firm against this practice for many years and always encouraged clients to own their hosting direct.  However, an overwhelming number of clients have asked for fully packaged solutions where we manage the hosting for them – a one stop shop as such. 

Another force for change has been the way hosting is sold and the requirements for great SEO and website performance:

If you have a small site with a lower hosting budget, in most cases to reach the lower price point, your website will be on a shared server with thousands of other websites and businesses.  The servers at this end of the market will not be the fastest or most resilient in the datacentre.  They will not be the first to receive newer faster technologies and if you want to move up a level, there is usually some reconfiguration and downtime involved in upgrading.

Wouldn’t it be better if a small business could reach the most powerful servers in the datacentre without paying huge hosting costs?  In other words – get onto the fastest servers but use a small proportion of their resources

Having searched high and low and analysed all the hosting offerings on the market, we have created C J Strand Cloud hosting – incredible cloud based hosting that includes everything a business needs in 3 easy to understand plans.

All the plans are hosted on the SAME cloud based infrastructure with super fast servers and connections, with fast solid state storage disks (SSD) and worldwide premium Content Delivery Network (CDN) built in at no additional charge.

 

At the moment, I have one unwavering directly owned hosting recommendation for clients who do not want our cloud hosting or have a managed website such as SquareSpace, Weebly or Wix where hosting is taken care of as part of the platform.  For WordPress, Joomla, PHP and any other platform requiring hosting I recommend the following:  

SiteGround

SiteGround is hosting over 2,000,000 domains while making website owners less stressed, more productive, and hopefully just a little happier. Their customer satisfaction rate over all those clients is at 98%, growing every year for the past five years.

This very website is hosted with Siteground, located on UK servers, with unlimited email and at amazing prices. You can also register domains with them once you have opened a hosting account.

SiteGround support is legendary, and as I often contact them via client accounts I know first hand that they do not expect everyone contacting them to be a technical expert, quite the opposite.

There are plans available for the smallest to the largest websites and a full range of technology and security options.

If you are choosing WordPress there is no better option – WordPress recommends Siteground.  They’ll even install it for you, along with free SSL (so your website is secure and visitors know it is).

There are so many great things I could tell you about SiteGround but it’s all on their website so do click through to find out more.
