Is Your Non-WordPress Hosting Non-EIG Friendly?
It is always great to find a great hosting provider, but it is even better when that provider is also friendly to non-EIGs.
Unfortunately, not all hosting providers are created equal and some are much more friendly to non-EIGs than others. Below, we will discuss the most important things you need to know about hosting providers and why you should be careful when selecting a hosting provider. This article will not be meant to be comprehensive but only to provide you with a better understanding of how web hosting works and what to look for in a hosting provider. So let’s get started.
Features And Functionality
When you host your website content on a web server, you are committing to providing a certain level of functionality. Depending on the type of hosting you select, you will get different features and functionality as part of your service. For example, if you choose shared hosting, you will get access to a feature-packed control panel and a dedicated IP that is always ready to take over. Or if you opt for a VPS, you will gain full root access and be able to install whatever you want with no restrictions.
The best part about this type of hosting is that you can upgrade your service whenever you want. You don’t have to commit to a set amount of time or money. You can try out the different features and functionality and see how they work for you. The downside is that sometimes these features can be a little overwhelming for beginners who are just trying to get their feet wet with website creation. And, of course, you will have to renew your service contract whenever it is due. But, in general, this type of hosting is a great option for anyone who wants to experiment with different website configurations without having to commit to a large-scale redesign.
Ease Of Use
Another important factor to consider when selecting a hosting provider is how EASY it is to use. The best web hosts are designed to be user-friendly and have clear instructions provided by experienced support staff. Also, make sure to look for a host that is compatible with the most popular software programs such as WordPress and Joomla! You don’t want to run into any trouble when trying to use these programs on your new site. You should also ask the support staff about any issues you might encounter and be sure to follow their advice. Also, take a look at the website design and general functionality of the different hosting providers to see how they stack up.
On the other hand, some hosts are so clogged with features that they are difficult to use even for experienced webmasters. Take a look at each host’s features and get a feel for how difficult it is to navigate their control panel. Also, some hosts are so outdated that they don’t offer the latest web security techniques and the services they do offer are overpriced and don’t offer what you need to keep your site secure.
No one likes to spend their time troubleshooting technical issues, which is why most web hosts provide support via live chat or email. The best support experiences are delivered by highly trained and experienced tech support teams who are on hand to help 24/7. This is far better than having to wait until the next business hour to get the same question answered. Also, look for a host that is backed by a company with a solid reputation.
Unfortunately, not all web hosts are created equal and some are far less reliable than others. Make sure to research the history of the company before committing to any type of service. Look for signs of improvement and growth over the years. Also, ask for references and read online reviews from previous customers. This way, you can get an idea of how well this particular company handles customer service and how likely you are to have your issues resolved promptly and accurately. If you are looking for a one-stop-shop for all your web hosting needs, then this article will give you a clear picture of what to look for in a web host.
