Things to Look For in a WordPress Host for Your Business Site

Share This Post

When it comes to finding the right WordPress host for you, we understand how important it is to select one that shares your goals. This includes facilitating growth, helping to quickly resolve issues, and providing quality-hosting features that go beyond expectations.

What is WordPress?

First thing first: let’s talk about WordPress. WordPress is an open-source software that is used to create stunning websites and blogs. As such, it is considered by many to be the easiest website and blogging content management system (CMS). The flexibility, options, and user-friendly CMS make it one of the most popular choices.

WordPress is so versatile, you can install it on your choice of web hosts, while still creating content that is 100% your own. The limiting factor, however, comes with what WordPress hosting site you choose to work with.

Why Free Hosting Isn’t the Best Option

Free hosting may seem like the best, most affordable option when it comes to developing your website or blog. However, this is not necessarily true.

Free hosting is never truly free. Often, it starts with offering a version that is limited in scope for “free”. This is done with the hopes that you will eventually upgrade to their paid services. This can include website hosting with limited storage, small amounts of bandwidth, and no way to transfer your page to another host site should you choose to leave.

Free hosts may also shut down their services, suspend, or disappear with little to no notice. Because they have limited your ability to transfer your page, this means you will have to start over from scratch. This will affect your backlinks and search engine optimization (SEO) ranking.

Free hosting sites also tend to limit plug-ins and other advanced customization options. This means you will likely select from a pre-made template before you begin to create your site. In fact, most do not offer a truly “free domain name” either. Instead, your domain will be followed by theirs. They also forbid most ads or affiliate links on your site, preventing you from making money for hosting these links.

What to Look For

A good WordPress hosting site should offer features that matter to you. Of these, the most important will include scalability, security, support, and reputation. (All of which are key features of the WordPress hosting offered through BionicWP!)

Scalability is important because it affects your ability to grow. A good WordPress hosting site will want to foster your growth, with potential and affordable expansions. BionicWP supports this. After all, at BionicWP, we understand that anyone who invests time and money into his or her site has a desire to see it grow.

Security is another feature that has become increasingly important as we begin to rely more and more on the internet. After all, customers may be providing you with vital information, like addresses, credit cards, and personal details. They want their information protected as much as you do. A good WordPress hosting site should offer you a series of protections that can help you and your customers feel more secure. This includes Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) systems, SSL certificate assistance, backup solutions and a solid history of preventative measures.

Support tailored specifically for WordPress websites is ideal. An experienced support staff should provide timely, professional, and quality help. They should be able to identify and help fix any problems or errors that may occur, including internal server failures, compatibility issues, and much more.

A WordPress hosting site should also be reputable. Testimonials, internet research, and references should all speak to a host’s professionalism, quality support, security, and quick responses.
