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.

Website hosting can be the reason your website is loading slow, which negatively affects your website rankings. 

Insecure hosting can lead to websites that get hacked.

Don’t fall victim.

Not all hosting accounts are equal – website performance starts at the hosting level.

I have struggled with the speed of my website for years. I finally chose to leave shared hosting and use the Managed WordPress hosting (the same service I am offering here). My load speed went from 13 seconds to 2 seconds! That is the difference between someone leaving my website because it loads too slow vs. reading my website.

Web Hosting FAQs

Who Purchases My Domain?2022-02-05T16:45:18-08:00

Why can’t my website designer purchase my domain for me?

Whoever owns the account that the domain is purchased in, owns that domain. If you let someone purchase it for you , in their account, they own the domain.

I have seen this happen often. It never ends well. Over time the person that purchased your domain might leave the industry, leave the country, retire, or pass away. Maybe they just stop returning your calls or emails. Now what?

If you do not have access to your domain, you will be rebuilding your website in the future on another domain. Not ideal, but I have seen it happen many times.

Protect yourself and buy your own domain, in your account.

Does Premium Websites, LLC have to host my site?2021-12-05T12:15:33-08:00

No, but it is recommended. We provide Managed WordPress hosting. This means that the hosting account is configured for your specific website. We will update the plugins, theme files, and core WordPress files. Our hosting is also more secure and faster than shared hosting accounts.

If you choose to go with Shared hosting, keep in mind that your website will be vulnerable to hacking and other nefarious activity.

There are a few hosting companies that we can recommend.  Any host that utilizes Cpanel might be a good host for WordPress.  We also have a list of hosts that we do not recommend because they do not work well with WordPress or are hard to contact when you have issues.

Recommended:

Not recommended:

  • Godaddy
  • iPage
  • Dreamhost
  • Network Solutions
  • Bluehost

If you do not have a host picked out already, I will help you with your choice when the time comes to purchase a hosting account.

What is web hosting?2022-02-05T16:08:06-08:00

 

Website hosting is required for your website to be accessible on the Internet. The hosting company stores all your website files to be accessible on the Internet.

Good hosting companies help to ensure your site is up and running 99.9% of the time. Hosting companies also possess the communication equipment to provide fast access to your site so that your pages load quickly. Hosting is based on an annual fee that you pay to have your site accessible on the Internet.

Not all hosting companies are equal.  Many do not play well with WordPress.  Many offer cheap shared hosting that is shared worldwide.  Do you want your files on a server with people doing questionable things on the Internet?

Read Should I Get My Domain?

Should I get my own domain name?2021-12-05T12:17:07-08:00

That depends. What are you going to do with it? Do you need brand recognition or an online identity? If you do, registering a domain name can be a great place to start.

Your company will look more professional with email coming from “you@yourcompany.com” than it would from “you56743@aol.com”. However, if you want a fun site to tell about your family or something for a special occasion that only a select few will know about, then a free subdomain from wordpress.com would be a great way to go.

What is a domain name?2021-12-05T12:16:32-08:00

Simply put, it is your address on the World Wide Web. It is what you type into your web browser’s address bar to get to a website.

Our domain name is PremiumWebsites.net, or www.PremiumWebsites.net  The www is no longer needed. Either way, you type it, the same website will be delivered.

Domains are purchased at a company like GoDaddy and need to be bought in YOUR name by YOU.  Do not let a friend, web designer, or anyone else purchase your domain for you.  Whoever buys it owns it.
