When it comes to living the online dream as a blogger or an online entrepreneur, you can’t do away with hosting. Going in for the right host is halfway to success. Poor hosting from my end caused me my first blog which was really doing great in the blogosphere.
There seem to be a lot of hullabaloos about hosting and which one surpasses the other but are these noises about these major hosting companies worth the hype? I sincerely don’t think so.
Hostgator and Bluehost and to some extent Arvixe seem to be the people’s favourite but with all due respect these hosting companies are of course not worth those hype.
Experiencing major downtime is evitable from Hostagator. It appears that is what they fancy the most as means of promoting themselves to others as well.
Imagine visiting a blog for your usual insight and being hit with this;
An interesting thing is that you are guaranteed a 20% discount if you purchase from their 403 error. Is that not madness? Is this a deliberate attempt from them to show 403 forbidden page. I was experiencing these things a lot until I moved to Arvixe!
The least said this Arvixe hosting the better. They have all sorts of ads telling the entire world why how cheap they are. $4 is what is boldly displayed but in reality one will be paying for $60 for a year so in reality one will be paying$5 a month.
The money aspect isn’t of course the problem but their downtimes is what leaves a lot of doubt. Whiles on Hostgator, my poetry blog was with them but obviously regretted it.
There are of course several blogs using either Bluehost, Hostgator or Arvixe but the rate at which they are broken down is worrisome. I have more than 70 blogs with links broken on my blog.
I had no option than to unlink most of them. This of course was no fault of theirs but instead the hosting they were using.
That is why I will recommend ipage web hosting. The best one could get on the market. My poetry had being on ipage for more than 2 months now and had experienced no downtime this of course convinced me to move kabenlah.com to it early this month and the experience from them had being really great. No downtime from them and it’s the best money can buy.
Support from their end is really great also and the best price you can get from the. Imagine paying less than $2 for the next two years for a hosting package which will no means fu*k you up.
Ipage is what I use and it is what I recommend for you as well. Don’t forget I have some free Google Adwords and Facebook Ads Credit to use for free all in the name of Ipage. What I love most from them is their quick support 24/7!
Which hosting are you using and what has being your experience with them?
