Best Website Hosting Site

Is there such a thing as THE Best Website Hosting Site? I mean really, what can one compare to when it comes to hosting a domain name these days?

Sure in the past…way back in past there may have been massive benchmark differences between various website/ domain hosting sites. Maybe for websites that have gargantuan amounts of traffic will still worry about a few milliseconds extra for a page to open. I believe for most comprehensive sites the few millisecond differences will not make an impact on their web site success. Particularly for those that want the best blog hosting site available.

That’s right! The best blog hosting site. I’ll get to why one hosting site stands out from the rest when it comes to hosting blogs.

How do we determine the best domain hosting site from the poor to good sites?

Speed

If speed is not a factor to consider anymore, then uptime and support are probably the next important traits we need to review. I mean, what is the use to have a quick page upload if the site doesn’t even open because the servers are down?

Uptime

Reliability of a domain hosting site is a crucial aspect when shopping around for the best for your buck. Again, in general,  most web hosting sites are quite reliable. They have so many contingencies and redundancies built in today that it would take an enormous catastrophic event to make one crash. If one does crash, it is only moments when another backup comes online. On of those little glitches. This may be a factor for sites with thousands of visits per minute or second, but once again an independent blogger need not worry about a brief and rare downtimes.

Support

Support can make or break any service, and that rule works the same for web-hosting sites. Especially for independent bloggers as they do not have teams of IT support to assist at the snap of the fingers.

As an independent blogger, you would want a service that you can contact 24/7 and have a response within minutes, or faster if that is possible.

Tools

Some hosting sites do not offer any tools to build your website, but there are more and more that are starting to provide these tools or templates to create your website and then host it on their hosting platform. In many cases, that may require extra fees for every little upgrade. Do not get fooled by some of the monthly fees that are advertised upfront.; you will soon learn about all of their up sales once you’ve started building your website. Sure if all you want is a personal website to post some photos and personal blogs then that low monthly fee may be all you need.

If you are serious about creating an online business, then it will cost you more. As mentioned above some of the low monthly hosting sites will have numerous up sales if you want to start an e-commerce site. Only one web hosting site offers you one monthly fee where you can host 50 websites with no hidden costs.

Education

I know this is not a standard feature for most web hosting platforms, but there is one that offers an extraordinary amount of training materials, webinars, 1 on 1 coaching and chat forums that blows away all of their competitors.


This brings me to showing a comparison of some of the highly advertised web hosting sites with a site that does not do any paid advertisement.

Time for a Comparison

What do these comparisons tell me?

Looking at the comparisons above you will notice that I have still given WIX and GoDaddy pretty good ratings even though they have fewer features. Now don’t get me wrong, those two competitors do provide robust web-hosting services, and their products are well made. In my comparison, I indicated that Wix does not have a “Free” option. Although you can sign in and create a free website, I don’t consider it a free website when Wix forces their ads to be on your site.

The differences you will notice are all the added features Wealthy Affiliate has over the rest. Sure enough, enough the look of Wealthy Affiliate platform doesn’t have all the fanfare a site like Wix has, but that does not mean that lack of features.

 

If you are a website builder newbie, and you try out Wealthy Affiliate for free, another feature not available by its competitors; you will see the value the education will make at understanding the online business and how to become an online success.

I wish you the best of success in creating your online business no matter which service you use.

One thing that may reassure you is the fact you can always bring your website over to other web hosting sites if you ae not pleased with their services.

Cheers

About the Author Paul

My online journey started in 2008 when I was tired of working for somebody else. I searched the internet for years trying to find out how to make a living from home with an online business. In 2015 I finally found the information and support from a website just like this one

    Hey there! Thank you for sharing this article. I was interested to see how you would rate these hosting companies as I have used them all at some point. I am currently using Wealthy Affiliate hosting for two sites and so far I have had no major issues at all.

    I did try Wix for a short time when I was experimenting with building websites. To be honest I found them to be really quite bad! So bad in fact that one site that I was working on simply vanished over night!

    I moved onto Godaddy and found them to be very good. I used the online support a couple of times and they really know how to treat their customers well.

    I moved my websites to Wealthy Affiliate in the end though because these guys go way further than just giving you somewhere to host your sites. I moved because I could get the Wealthy Affiliate community and hosting for a little more than I was paying for hosting alone at Godaddy. Thats a good deal in my book.

      Hey Andrew

      Sorry to here about the issues you had with Wix. I’ve tried it as well, but didn’t have that bad of an experience. I am always pleased to hear that people have signed up to Wealthy Affiliate as it really cannot be compared to the other web hosting sites. the online community and support we get there can only be fully appreciated by signing up seeing for yourself.

      Cheers

    I really enjoyed your article on web hosting. I haven’t used wix and was glad to learn a little about it.
    I love Wealthy Affiliate. I don’t think you could choose any better hosting and learning platform than Wealthy Affiliate. It’s really a great place to learn if you are just beginning.
    For me, I would choose Wealthy Affiliate for all my hosting needs. Thanks!

    • Paul says:

      Thanks

      I am so pleased to see people that have found Wealthy Affiliate to host their websites.

      Here you have a place that you can try out for free.

      You can become a premium member for about the same price it would cost you to host a couple of sites on another platform…yet Wealthy Affiliate allows you to host 25 websites and provides an online marketing education, weekly webinars and a whole community of people helping each other out.

      I just love hearing from those that have experienced Wealthy Affiliate and share their success stories. There are so many to choose from but you can check out one of my favorites by clicking here==> Wealthy Affiliate success story

    Hey Paul,

    Great comparison post.

    I like Wealthy Affiliate’s web hosting service. I have 4 websites right now hosted on their servers. They’re great.

    I haven’t had any issues that resulted in me losing money or anything like that.

    Maybe something small here and there. But their support team is so fast they usually fix them within minutes.

    So yeah, they blow most of their web host competition away.

    I’d recommend them, too (and get a good online marketing education while you’re at it).

    – Julian

      Hello Julian!

      Great to hear from someone that uses Wealthy Affiliate’s hosting services. You could not have found a better hosting site.

      You can look all over the internet and you will not find a web-hosting site that offers the same online education. Not to mention the supportive, like-minded community that are there 24/7.

      Have you had a chance to use their SiteDomains services yet?

      SiteDomainis a fairly new feature they offer and it just makes the whole hosting part so much easier.

      You can check it out by clicking here==> SiteDomains

    Thanks for the info and for an interesting comparison to these two big-name sites – I have used GoDaddy in the past but, like you I came to WealthyAffiliate and now my site is hosted there. The price was right, and there is so much support available for people who are new to the process also. And they actually train you on how to take the greatest advantage of your new site. So I would agree with your rankings.

    Hey, your logo is pretty sweet too by the way!

    • Paul says:

      You will not find anything else out there that can compare to Wealthy Affiliate for the price. I am pleased you found WA to where hey train and support you in not only creating your websites but also on how to create an online business.

      Thanks

      Paul

  • Des says:

    I like what you guys are doing. Such clever work and reporting. Carry on the excellent work guys!

    • Paul says:

      Thank you
      It started as a way to make an income from home but it has now turned into a passion. We never knew that blogging to help people could be so rewarding…and the income is a bonus!

  • It is really awesome information…love it!

  • Dave says:

    Hey Paul,

    I’ve heard that other hosting companies like Hostgator and NameCheap will let you buy domain names and then require you to buy the hosting plan, security and email provisions.

    To me that’s outright theft!

    Actually, I was thinking of purchasing a hosting plan for my site in GoDaddy, but now I think I’ll have to change my mind. It’s a no brainier that wealthy affiliate is great.

    But can I ask you a few thing before I get into it…You mean that I’ll never pay for the hosting as as far as my websites are there? And do I need to have built my websites in wealthy affiliate to get the free hosting or I can move them there?

    I’m waiting for your reply to take action. Thanks

    • Paul says:
