Web hosts not only host your website, they give you tools to access, create, update, and maintain it. Most of our finalists use versions of a software called cPanel to do this — it’s one of the most common and universal interfaces for web hosting. If you ever want to change between web hosts, it’s good to have a common interface between your old and new hosts, since this can make the transition easier.
I took a look at both of those sites and they seem compatible enough to where it wouldn't be out of the ordinary or conflicting in any way. Now as far as the reason why you want to do this...... idk. Believe it or not today it's more about quality than quantity. You could have a million hits a month..... how does that guarantee them they can get sales out of it? I've seen TONS of Businesses celebrate from reaching these types of milestones then a week later panic because they're not...

InMotion Hosting not only has a great service offering, it was also one of the most transparent companies we reviewed. It's been providing hosting services for 15 years. It offers shared hosting, VPS hosting, dedicated servers, WordPress hosting, reseller hosting and managed hosting. Its wide-range of service offerings and plans mean there's an option for any small business, regardless of the type. It's shared hosting plans also come with a solid security offering. For these reasons, InMotion earned our best pick for best web hosting service for small business in 2018.
While we reviewed paid web hosting services, there are also some free web hosting services out there. These provided businesses and individuals with a web builder and a no-cost hosting service. While some security and integration features may be present, they won't be as robust as the paid services. Some examples of free hosting companies are Wix, WordPress, Weebly and 000webhost. Again, while these services can provide you with a good free hosting option, their capabilities will likely pale in comparison to the paid plans. If you're on a budget, it may be a good idea to start out on one of these services and then eventually transition to a paid plan.

Telling someone what I do for a living is always an interesting experience. Either we’re totally in sync, both lost in conversation about WordPress woes or some time-saving program update, or it’s me talking with crickets in response. There’s just something about web hosting. It’s hit-or-miss whether someone is up to speed on the nuances of all that this industry has to offer.
That's both good and bad. It means you can utilize an attractive design that works just as well on a smartphone as it does a desktop, but you're limited in terms of scope and what else you can do with that webspace. It's also a little more expensive initially than a shared hosting package, at about $12 per month for a personal site or $18 for a business package, which adds e-commerce features.
If you’re using a business credit card to place your order, the wait can be longer. We found that some companies needed additional information to verify our identity: discrepancies between your name and the card name can raise red flags for fraud. Usually, you’ll need to make a phone call to the company’s billing department and provide a scan of a government-issued ID to straighten things out.
We got answers when we posed our questions to BlueHost’s customer service reps, but it wasn’t as easy as with some other companies: our questions in the live chat were answered vaguely (“We have servers around the US”), and we had to prompt the representative to answer our questions more thoroughly after they suggested we check the homepage for more information about pricing. Granted, quality may vary between reps, and BlueHost’s were very responsive, just not the most forthcoming with their advice and expertise.
How quickly your website displays for your customers depends, in part, on how close to the web host server your customers are. We focused on US-based servers in this review, requiring companies to have at least one data center in North America. We preferred web hosts with additional data centers — if you live in Texas but your readers are all in the UK, it's useful to have a web host with servers in London — but we didn’t require it.
We were impressed by multiple 24/7 customer support options, including phone, web, and ticket-based help. Bluehost’s help services are broken into three departments — Sales, Tech Support, and Account Management — which are each further broken down into up to eight subdivisions for more specialized assistance. Along with its 24/7 customer service lines, Bluehost also has a 24/7 live chat option.

We use redundant bandwidth providers, routers and switches to provide full redundancy at all levels within our network. As a result, our network uptime is among the best around, and we’re proud of the rockin’ performance it delivers.
One of the most significant problems with Wix is, once you pick a template for your site, you kinda have to stick with it. Otherwise, you have to start an entirely new website to change it. There's a free plan you can start with, but the premium plans range from $5 to $25 per month. In the most basic premium plan called the Connect Domain, you get 1 GB of bandwidth and 500 MB of storage, and in the most premium VIP plan, you get 20 GB of storage and $300 in ad vouchers.
Choosing is simple: select hosting that will support the script, platform, or CMS you want to use. And if you aren't sure, go for Linux hosting. For example, WordPress will run on Linux and Windows, but hosts generally recommend that you run it on Linux. However, if you want to use a Windows-specific technology like ASP.NET, you'll need a Windows host.
Fatcow's network-attached storage also enables any machine to access customer data. Each machine is clustered with another identical machine that will seamlessly take over if the primary unit crashes, ensuring customer data is always safe and secure. Additionally, these units are also backed by another set of storage units that include a mirror copy of the data in case of disk failure in the primary units.
It's also a good idea to ask each company's sales team about what their defined range is and what their process is for handling customers who go over their pre-defined amount. If they try and convince you it's truly unlimited or a range that's wide enough for all businesses to operate comfortably within, press them for defined answers. It's important to be clear on what you're paying for and what you're getting as a business owner.
Downtime means that people can’t reach your site which can be frustrating to potential visitors while also costing you traffic and revenue. Additionally, if people aren’t able to reach your site the first time, they may not try again. That said, hosting providers provide minimum uptime guarantees which is a guarantee that they’ll have your site up and running that percent of the total hours in a day.
There are plenty of things to consider when searching for the best web hosting – such as price, features, performance, support, and much more. I’ve already menioned – in my reviews, I try to do the best possible job and cover as much as I can. So you know, what can you expect as a user of a platform. All things considered though, the most important thing is to try.
Wordpress is a massively flexible content management system that powers far more of the internet than you'd expect. That's because it's just as good for a quick and basic blog as it is for a complex business infrastructure. It's the perfect foundation for any content creation ambitions you may have, so a dedicated Wordpress hosting package is all the more convenient.
HostGator gained points for uptime monitoring and regular backups, along with free cPanel or Plesk. We liked that SSH is available for the more technically inclined site operators and that dedicated IP addresses could be purchased. We did take points off because it's sometimes difficult to tell what the price is once promotional plans run their course. That said, with a generous 45-day money back guarantee, there's a solution for almost everyone at HostGator.
