When it comes to the best WordPress hosting, just because you offer a huge amount of storage, doesn’t make you a quality host. In fact, most websites don’t need unlimited storage, and most websites will never use that amount or anywhere near it. Just like the old saying goes, sometimes less is more.
While obviously you don’t want a bare bones hosting plan, you don’t really need unlimited storage and bandwidth. What if, instead, you had a quality support system, a managed account, a chance to grow, and a few extra perks?
A support system is a good thing to have in any aspect of life whether emotionally, physically, or digitally. Knowing that you can rely on somebody when you come across an issue you can’t handle is a great feeling and an even greater relief.
It should be the same when dealing with a website as well. Why should you have to deal with all of the issues alone?
This is why we recommend using a host with a stellar customer support system. Thankfully, because this has become such huge part of business these days, support is usually available 24/7 via phone, email, or chat. If a host you are looking at does not have this option, we suggest looking somewhere else for the meantime.
Unless you are a website guru or love doing the dirty work when it comes to the backend of a site, a managed plan is right up your alley.
A managed hosting plan allows you to take your hands off the wheel without worrying about crashing. Scans for malware or attacks, plugin and security updates, and data backups are all a part of a managed hosting plan. Sound great or what?
Not only can you stop worrying about keeping your site safe, you don’t have to worry about keeping it updated when plugins or security changes occur. It’s the best of both worlds in terms of website hosting.
Planting the Seed
Just about every website owner wants their website to continue to grow, and if not then you can probably stop reading. When trying to find the best WordPress hosting for your site you need to consider the future of your website. You may have found a plan that works for you now, but what happens when your site grows?
As your website grows you will have to start thinking about the direction in which you want it to go. Would you like it to continue to grow and expand, or are you okay with it staying the same? If you want your website to continue to expand as you do, you are going to need a new hosting plan eventually.
This is why it is very important to check out the options you have to grow with your current host. If they offer bigger/better plans for your website, then you are in a good spot. If not, think about making the switch to a better host.
Extra, Extra, Read All About It!
Extras, freebies, BOGO’s, whatever you call it, everyone likes free things. While not something that is usually thought about when discussing different hosting plans, this changes when talking about WordPress hosting plans.
Hosts realized somewhere down the line that offering premium themes and plugins for their WordPress customers was a great way to ensure that they were happy. Also happens to be a good plan for attracting the attention of new customers. Now, it’s all but standard when it comes to WordPress plans.
You shouldn’t miss out on these opportunities either and they shouldn’t cost you extra when you can get the same opportunity for free somewhere else.
When you decide on the best WordPress hosting plan, make sure that it is the best for you. Not because the company is flashy or boasts loudly about how great they are, but because it makes sense for your website, and for you. Hosting is pretty simple once you break it down, and companies that try to make it seem difficult are not in it for you, they are in it for the money.
