Just as your house is only as solid as its foundation, your website is only as good as your web host. Your host is literally the foundation your entire website is built upon. You can have the greatest website of all time, but if you put it on a low quality host it will come crumbling down. Don’t do it.

Run Away. Fast.

You’re going to be tempted to sign up with one of these hosts. They’re cheap. You may have even seen an ad on Facebook telling you WordPress recommends them. (If you pay someone enough they’ll recommend you for anything.) Whatever the case may be, don’t do it. Listen very carefully. Do. Not. Do. It.

The List

The reasons you should not sign up with any of the companies could fill a hardback book on Amazon’s best seller list. Overloaded and slow servers, poor customer service, and unsafe security practices are just a few. Like the old adage goes, you get what you pay for. A cheap host will cost you more in the long run when your site goes down, customer service takes days to respond, your site gets hacked, or your web traffic plummets because your site is so slow.
