Don’t Make These Web Hosting Mistakes! (FS283)
How much do you know about your site’s web hosting? Has finding the right host been a challenge that you wish you could put to rest? What really is the best hosting platform for you and your business?
Whether you are tech savvy or not, chances are you have had some issues with website hosting during your entrepreneurial life. Almost all businesses require an online presence and thus a homepage for customers to visit, but setting this up has historically been a tricky business.
In this episode we look at some the developments in this field over the last decade or so and speak particularly on our experiences with WordPress and Squarespace. From there, we look at the different hosting options available to WordPress users and talk about the two main lanes that these fall into.
We also talk about domain purchasing and how your host can effect everything related to your website. The last part of the episode is dedicated to to announcing a great web hosting offer that is now available through your Fizzle membership. We are extremely excited about this, so make sure to stay tuned for that!
For all this and more, listen up in and get it all, Fizzlers!
