Website hosting cost

What is a website hosting cost and does it really matter? Cost is a minor equation when it comes to hosting and we will explain why on this short page.

What is more important than hosting cost?

I have used quite a few hosting companies over the years and nearly always get frustrated with what they give you.

I don't give a toss if they are free or expensive I just need them to work as I want and without problems.

However, websites have changed and they now need to offer more than basic hosting.

  • They must have SSL compliance included free
  • The speed of loading a page is important so measuring this is necessary.
  • Being mobile compliant is mandatory because Google search starts there.
  • Spam blocking is included free
  • A site health monitor to tell you all good things
  • the comments section for others to tell you good things
  • Daily backups
  • Full redundancy
  • A number of websites include
  • Training and more training

There are other ways to save costs as well.

I look at Wealthy Affiliate, my all-time recommended host and what you can pay.

Training on Webhosting

You can never overtrain

The experts don't need a lot of training but most of us do at some time and it can be so time-consuming chasing information.

A web forum is always a great place to start as most of us at some time or another have similar problems. There are those that love spreading the answers and being seen as elite marketers.

Chat Lines are another great idea to brainstorm your problems.

It should be remembered that a web site support only gives advise on website problems, not WordPress or pictures or similar.

Of course, there are so many things you can Google to get an answer but they sometimes don't quite hit the mark.

Training programmes on all things web are a great idea and at Wealthy Affiliate, you can follow a course or pick a subject.


Poor web hosting at any price is just not worthwhile. I spent months building a training course that got blocked because the provider did not have the tools to operate it properly. I tried to transfer the content but it was locked and not able to be used. At that stage, I decided enough was enough. Find a great host, get a few affiliate sales and live life more easily.
