Why Get Hosting from Dotty at Premium Websites?
Because you get ME for NO ADDITIONAL CHARGE.
When you purchase one of my Hosting Packages, you not only get quality hosting, but you get me. That won’t mean a lot until there is a problem – and it will come! I am your contact point; then I deal with the problem – for no charge. It is included in your hosting package! You will never deal with support directly.
Here is a great point – since offering Managed WordPress Hosting, I have had the hosting company contact me on several occasions on behalf of a client. They noticed a problem before the client did! They told me what to do, I did it, and then they fixed the problem. The client never even knew there was a problem until it was already fixed!
Another huge bonus – when the server gets an upgrade, all the hosting clients get that upgrade automatically and at no extra charge!
Types of Hosting
In the world of web hosting, there are up to eight different hosting options available. I’m going to address three of the most common that small business owners use:
Managed WordPress Hosting: This is a specific hosting setup for WordPress websites. The servers are optimized to run WordPress. They offer higher security, faster load times, and automated functions like daily backups. This is the hosting I now use and provide to all my clients.
Shared Hosting: This is what most small business owners have. It is the cheapest type of hosting. It is offered at all hosting companies like Godaddy, Bluehost, Network Solutions, Hostgator, etc. This type of hosting is shared with thousands of other websites on the same server. You have no control over who is on the server. If another site on that server gets infected with a virus, it is way more likely that your site will also become infected.
I used shared hosting for many years.
Like I discovered with my website, your website will struggle with resources and speed while using shared hosting. I have also had issues with my website loading slow both on mobile and desktop, security issues, and uptime issues. I have discovered that all of these issues are related to shared hosting and not my website directly. Over the years, I have used various plugins to resolve these issues, and I have had some success, but not the results I would like.
Dedicated Hosting: This is for massive websites. The business will purchase their server, and their website is the only one on that server. In comparison, this is very expensive. The company usually has an IT department responsible for keeping the server working properly, keeping it secure, and keeping the website virus-free.
