WordPress and Website Hosting
Searching for a good hosting company is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. I recently took up the task of find a new host for my websites so I could consolidate everything to 1 hosting company. In order to find a reliable hosting company and meet my requirements I created a list of guidelines to judge hosting companies.
1. They (the hosting company) owned the equipment and hardware the website hosting was provided on.
2. They were a small to med sized company where the owner/founder was still involved and interested in keeping business
3. Servers were not oversold and pushed to the limits of the hardware, and upgrade windows were after hours.
4. Support is helpful and available with a good response time.
5. Price is not a concern.
While some of this information is not public knowledge it was surprisingly easy to eliminate a lot of companies based on these guidelines. I was able to find a lot of information on webhostingtalk.com where there are many helpful forum members.
After my search concluded I found 1 hosting company that stood out to me and I gave it a try. Over the past 6 months of hosting with the new hosting company my sites have gone without any problems and I am very happy with my decision.
