Why Paying For Great WordPress Hosting Is Worth It

Tom, TEA Websites

Hosting can sometimes be overlooked, however, this is the backbone of your website. Choosing the best WordPress hosting for your needs can improve your SEO (Search Engine Optimisation) and increase sales.

Our Checklist For Great WordPress Hosting

  • Dedicated WordPress Hosting
  • 365 Support
  • Free SSL
  • Managed WordPress Updates
  • No hidden costs!

Dedicated WordPress Hosting

Obviously, hosting a WordPress website should be on Dedicated WordPress Hosting. But why I hear you ask? Dedicated WordPress hosting can often be more expensive than traditional cloud hosting, but there’s a reason for this.

WordPress websites aren’t simple html and css websites. As WordPress is a CMS, it requires a database. Not all simple website hosting has this. Dedicated WordPress hosting often is modified to excel with WordPress websites, making them fast, secure and easy to manage (most will run updates for you!)

365 Support

If you’re a small business, it’s likely you don’t work 9-5, Monday to Friday! So why should you settle for 5 day a week support? In the years I’ve been building website I’ve had a range of support, from 24/7/365, to Monday-Friday, 9-5. Whilst this may sound like a minor point, if your website is hacked on a Friday evening, you can’t wait for the support team to be back in ~60 hours.

Our Website Subscriptions come with Managed WordPress Hosting with 24/7/365 Support.

Free SSL

Cmon! It’s 2020! You need to have an SSL (Secure Socket Layer) certificate on your website. This encrypts your traffic from a computer to your server, meaning their information can’t be changed.

Google will flag websites as “Not Secure” when you don’t have an SSL certificate

Whereas websites with a properly configured SSL certificate display a padlock. Much more comforting! I’d buy from this company!

WordPress Hosting by 34SP is Secure

Our Website Subscriptions come with Hosting included. This hosting includes Let’s Encrypt, a Free SSL which we enable and ensure your whole site is protected through it!

Managed WordPress Updates

As mentioned above, dedicated WordPress hosting often includes managed updates. This takes the pain out of updating to the latest WordPress release, or keeping that long list of plugins you use (yes, we see you, we’ve all done it!) up to date. This gives you more time to focus on your business.

That’s why we use managed hosting with our Website Subscriptions.
