Finding the right host for your website can be very tough, there are hundreds of thousands of web hosts out there, the vast majority of which will meet the WordPress minimum requirements, and choosing the right one for you can be a challenge.
With hosting services available from under £10 per month to over £100 per month where do you start, I have tried a plethora of hosts over the years and have now narrowed down the best ones. What’s best for you? well, many factors will decide – how critical is your site to your business, what would the impact be if your site is down. How many visitors / page views? Is it a personal blog, small business website, e-commerce? the list continues…
I highly recommend using a managed WordPress host like Synthesis or WP Engine. They will keep your website fast, secure, and fully backed up. And since they focus only on WordPress, their support is second to none. If you want a standard (non-managed) host, I recommend Bluehost.
For those of you who need it, I offer a complete support and back up service. Be it simple, quick advice on how to do something within WordPress, or maybe an SEO query, I am here to help!
If you have a non-managed hosting package you may wish to consider a back-up, update and support service, I see too many clients with old, out of date WordPress & plugin installations and who only ever consider the importance of backing up once they have an issue and it is all too late.
Are you new to WordPress and need a better understanding to maximise the many benefits of this excellent CMS platform, I strongly recommend WP101 their extensive list of training videos to any of my clients that need it. I also provide detailed instructions for managing your specific theme or customisations I may complete.
How Much Will It Cost?
Each client has different requirements and varied levels of experience, I approach all support work on an individual basis. As with all my services Support is very flexible, I will do as much or as little as you need.
My rates for Support & Hosting advice are £35.00 per hour.
