How to choose a web host

Last updated on

Always let your development team choose the web host for the following reasons:

  • They are building the website and know the server requirements.
  • They will have a list of reliable hosting companies based on first-hand experience.
  • It may work out cheaper as web agencies often have discounts with their preferred web host.

I am rebuilding my site – should I change host?

If you are happy with your existing web host, there is no need to change.
I would only change if your have found a better cheaper option, or your are experiencing problems such as downtime, or your website is running slow.

Hosting companies recommended from personal experience

Please note that I have no affiliation with these companies. I have worked with them all at some point in the past and have mainly positive things to say:

  • Hosting companies for large high-traffic websites – Inmotion, Hostpoint, Bluehost
  • Green hosting companies help you reduce your carbon footprintGreengeeks.
  • Italian hosting companies – OVH are the best large company, alternatively we like Serverpoint
