Fast WordPress Hosting Services

I finally decided to check off an item on my to do list, which is setting up a website and blog to gain experience with analytics, inbound marketing, and monetization.

This has been put off for way too long.  In the past, I have used Name.com for domain acquisition and GoDaddy.com for WordPress hosting.

Here is an article from WPSitecare which I wish I read before paying with my credit card!

WordPress hosting speed matters:

  1. As an admin, content creation should not be slow and annoying when working on the site.
  2. Pages should load quickly otherwise the reader will go away and never come back!
  3. Consider customer support and online reviews in your selection criteria.

A simple websearch on the ‘host + wordpress slow’ will give you a good indication of reviews.

Unfortunately, I picked my provider by price, and because I received a referral discount.   To summarize, I leaned towards taking action, and just picking the easiest and quickest path.

At a later point I will re-evaluate.  This is a new site, so I have some time to learn and get a sense of true performance requirements.  After all, there is no point getting an off-road vehicle for a trip to the mall!
