With over 500 new sites being created on WordPress every day, it’s no wonder that WordPress has just been named the most popular content management system for the 7th year in a row.
When you have a business, blog, or portfolio website on WordPress, you may be being introduced to web hosting for the first time.
As a business, you’ll want to avoid having your website URL stuck at “mybusiness.wordpress.com” and instead opt for the more professional solution that involves having your own web hosting instead.
Today we’re going to explore four reasons why you need reliable, cheap WordPress hosting for your business.
Saving money on the small things means more money to invest
When you have a business, it’s really important to be able to save money on the small things so that you have more money to invest in the things that count.
But when you don’t know an industry, it can be difficult to know if you’re being overcharged.
When searching for cheap WordPress hosting, it can be tempting to go with the first big company name that springs to mind – but it’s worth shopping around.
One of our customers, Hannah McCreesh, is a lifestyle blogger who migrated her blog over from Blogger, a self-hosted platform to WordPress – meaning she needed to buy WordPress hosting for her blog for the first time.
She went with Siteground because the company who migrated her blog over told her to. However, it wasn’t until speaking to a friend that she realised she was paying over the odds for her web hosting.
With Siteground, she was paying £35 every three months. With us, she now only pays £4.99 a month – a saving of over 50%!
Over time, even small savings can have a large impact on your business. Why waste money unnecessarily when you can get reliable, cheap WordPress hosting for a fraction of the cost?
WordPress hosting is optimised for the platform
Though some general hosting packages will be compatible with WordPress sites, the reason that web hosting companies offer a specific WordPress hosting package is because they are optimised for the platform.
Let’s put it this way – you wouldn’t expect your doctor to be able to care for your pet, right?
WordPress hosting packages are faster and more secure because they are created with the platform specifically in mind.
At NetNerd, we are proud to say that we have the proudest cloud-based web hosting in the UK – and it shows. Just see what our customers have to say about us on TrustPilot.
You don’t need any technical expertise
We know that having a WordPress website for the first time can be daunting. It’s always hard in the first instance to get to grips with a new platform, but we’ve worked hard to make this easier than ever.
Having WordPress hosting will often mean that your website address has to be www. yourdomain.wordpress.com – a domain extension that ruins your professional credibility.
However, when you buy WordPress hosting with us, we allow you to make your website domain www.yourdomain.com instead.
Similarly, once you sign up we offer a “1 click installation” – meaning your website can be up and running at the click of a button.
We’ve also created an extensive library of video tutorials to show you everything you need to know about updating your shiny, new WordPress website.
But if you still need help, our friendly UK based support team will be more than happy to assist you.
Moving hosting providers is quick and easy
If you already have a web hosting provider but they’re not providing what you need, it may be time to switch.
People often think that moving hosting providers is a lengthy process. However, it’s actually a lot easier than you might think.
There are two types of transfer – manual and automatic. Manually transferring your website over takes a lot more legwork and technical expertise – however, we offer free automatic web hosting transfers.
All you have to do is sign up with us (without cancelling your account with your existing provider), then send a few bits of information over to our support teams.
They will then be able to finalise the process for you – quickly, easily and completely hassle-free.
