When picking a hosting solution there are several factors to consider:
- WordPress experience
Knowing you have web host that is experienced with WordPress – i.e. WordPress Managed Hosting –
is critical especially if you are using one of CyberChimps WordPress Themes.
There are also several different types of hosting to consider:
- Shared Hosting – Hosting that you are sharing with other customers, and competing for resources. This is typically the lowest priced hosting and best for small websites with little traffic.
- VPS (Virtual Private Server) – Hosting that has defined resources and bandwidth capable of hosting larger websites with more traffic. VPS hosting is more reliable, but much more expensive, less secure, and requires more maintenance.
- Dedicated Hosting – A literally dedicated server that hosts only your website.
- Managed Hosting – Hosting that is managed by a hosting company to ensure speed, security, scalability, and stability.
If you have a website with little traffic then there is no better bargain then shared hosting. One of the best shared WordPress web hosts is Bluehost, they are recommended by WordPress.org, and offer reliable service with 1-click installs. With prices starting at $4.95, there really isn’t a better deal.
If you are hosting a business website with a lot of traffic, or running eCommerce, and need more from a WordPress host we recommend you consider managed WordPress hosting over a VPS or dedicated server.
We highly recommend WP Engine for all of your managed premium WordPress hosting and business website needs. CyberChimps.com itself is hosted with WP Engine, and with prices starting at just $29 a month they well worth the peace of mind. They also specialize specifically in WordPress hosting and offer specific WordPress based tools with every install. We trust them with our business and our website, and we are confident they can host your company website as well.
