So many website hosts
It’s true, there are so many website hosting companies available, it is almost impossible to decide on which hosting company is right for you. We use ionos for our hosting needs and we aren’t saying this is the best company. There are many out there to choose from, but this company over the past 10 years or longer has never done us wrong.
We can’t review every hosting company out there, so we will just show you some of the website hosting companies we think are the best here. If you choose one the website hosting companies below, you probably won’t go wrong.
Since we are hosting with iONOS, it only makes sense to start with them. iONOS hosting began in the United Kingdom in 1988 and has since gone global with offices in both the U.S. and Europe. They were originally called 1&1 until just this past year taking the name iONOS through a merger. Here are some key fact about iONOS that makes them a great hosting company.
- Over 30 years of success as a website hosting company which is rare.
- The largest hosting company in Europe
- 24/7/365 customer care, you can call these guys anytime and they will answer your phone call. This isn’t just some statement about uptime from a hosting company.
- They manage over 12 million domains/websites
- They have you covered for all your hosting needs whether its shared hosting, php hosting, .net hosting, VPS, dedicated hosting and much more.
- Packages as low as $4 per month that cover all the basics you would need for your website
In my opinion, one of the best hosting companies you can use. I’ve used other hosting companies and by far, this has been my best experience.
We have given serious thought into switching over to BlueHost in the past. The only reason we haven’t done so is their pricing model requires a year in advance. I’m not a big believer in paying for hosting a year in advance, but many are ok with it. Bluehost has a proven track record of providing great hosting for customers and is a go to hosting company for many of the industry leading organizations out there.
