Cheap Web Hosting vs. Good Web Hosting

 

These days there are a lot of options when it comes to web hosting. This comparison looks that the choices we made when setting up our shared web hosting plans with the goal to maximize value for our clients.

Cheap Hosting
(Most Often Reselling)
The Dynamic Hosting WayWhy It Matters
Toll Free Support Phone?SometimesYesIf your email is down, you need a number to call!
Support HoursOften not stated24 / 7 / 365Because when you need support it might not be at 10:30 AM in California
% Renewable Energy Contributionunknown100%It doesn’t to some, but it does to us!
Number of days of backupsunknown90+When something bad happens and you need to go back in time to restore old files (or your entire website) learning that your provider doesn’t offer backups at that point it’s too late and the worst time to find out…
Multi-Node DNSrarelyYesThis makes your site load faster for people in different areas and provided you with redundancy in case of failure (better uptime)
Disaster Recovery PlanTypically 1 DCRedundant DC’s in Western & Eastern CanadaMost cheap hosting plans are only backed up locally (if at all). When a fire, flood, or hurricane strikes and the servers / DC is out for the count your site could be gone forever
WordPress Security Automation?rarelyYesWordPress is an awesome CMS platform but it needs to be patched or it will get hacked! Advanced providers offer full security integration that automates the process so you don’t need to remember to do it every week
Automatic Mobile site?NoYesIf your site isn’t mobile friendly you are losing out, we offer out clients access to a free tool that is fully integrated that automatically can convert their site into one that looks great on phones & tablets!
Free Domain?rarelyYesYou can’t have a website without one so why isn’t it included?
Free SSL Certificate?NoYesGoogle ranks SSL encrypted sites higher than those that aren’t!
