The benefit of having a Facebook group associated with this website which as 23K members is that the knowledge base is enormous.
The negative to having a Facebook group associated with this website that has 23K members is the knowledge base can cripple your decision making ability.
The discussion of hosting comes up over the in the Facebook group pretty much every day. Why, you may wonder? Well because hosting is just like any other housing issue: one option does not fit all.
Why you may wonder? Well, some people have huge sites with e-commerce, blogs with loads of posts & comments, loads of pages. Other people have just a couple of pages. There are those who know lots about hosting and don’t need a C-Panel or customer service. There are others who like their hand held when they are looking at the files of their client’s websites (okay, that used to be me, but I am a LOT better now).
All kidding aside. I want to use this space to have the hosting conversation. There are too many questions / answers / opinions / situations / facts for us to continuously start thread after thread in the Facebook Group.
If you have a question or contribution let’s put it here in the comments. Over time this thread should serve as an encyclopedic record of all things hosting,
We’ll start the conversation off as we use FLYWHEEL because we have been through the mill with hosting companies. FLYWHEEL are flexible, reliable, have great support and frankly, with over a quarter of a million page views a month, 20,000 plus customers and over 100 vendors to consider, we cannot afford not to have the best hosting package available to us.
PS: I have done an interview with wpengine, which you can read and see their ElegantMarkeplace offer here. For people who like access to 24 hour help check out BlueHost and I have been hearing positive reviews from my friend Anna Buzzelli who is in the GoDaddy camp.
Remember, give a little, get a lot. Thanks for being here.
