What is Website Hosting? 3 Great Website Hosting Options for Your Business

In addition to purchase your website domain name, you will need a hosting account to store and serve your site on the web.

A website hosting service will sell you server space, typically on a monthly or yearly basis. The cost of hosting greatly depends on the amount of server space and any additional features such as backups, security, and more.

There are many different hosting options, which can get confusing. We’re here to provide our favorite recommendations for website hosting for your business!

  1. Bluehost

Something important to note about any hosting provider is if they include an SSL certificate with hosting or if that will be an additional cost. An SSL Certificate tells the browser, and search engines that your website is secure. Bluehost, as well as the below hosting options all include a free yearly SSL certificate.

What we love about Bluehost is that they offer a comprehensive hosting plan and a great first year plan under $100 with a free domain. They offer excellent phone and live chat support. 

  1. Flywheel

Flywheel offers an excellent user interface with automatic backups included with hosting. They do not offer phone support, but do offer online chat support.

What we like most about Flywheel, is they make WordPress site hosting for any user! Monthly Plans start at $13 per month. 

  1. Siteground

Siteground is known for their customer easy website migration service. This can be a great choice for developers who need to transfer websites to client hosting. 

Daily websites, a site staging tool and recently added collaboration tools make Siteground hosted websites ready for success! Monthly plans start at $6.99 each month. 

Without a doubt, the above hosting providers offer excellent service and support for a robust hosting platform for building any website.
