Where you INITIALLY host your website is less important than you might think. What is important is that you START!

Internet Marketing Strategy | Where Should You Host Your Website?

This post is part of a series about the Internet marketing strategy I call Inbound Marketing. To access the lead post please click the link in the prior sentence.

The problem

You have to host your website somewhere. Some hosting providers are better than others. Which one is right for you?

The answer

Zippe.biz helps you generate quality leads for your business through your website.

There are two answers: day 1, and much later.

The initial answer

The initial answer, when your website is brand new, is…… it doesn’t matter!

No one is coming as your Inbound Marketing effort just started, so issues like being able to handle a large load are not yet relevant.

In the early days, what is important is who can help you get your site up and running (on Linux NOT Windows) quickly and cheaply!

Go with them. Common options are:

I’m sure there are more, but what I’m trying to help you avoid is paralysis by analysis.

Just pick one and get going.

The answer down the road

Down the road the answer gets a little more complicated and will be influenced by a variety of factors you may not have even considered yet.

For example, I recently decided to install the OptimizePress 2.0 Theme on this website. The theme vendor makes the statement that in their experience, HostGator provides the best level of support to their clients.

As such, if I continue to use this theme in the future (and I will) at some point I move will probably move this website to HostGator.

What will influence your decision is not yet known. If your website becomes wildly popular and generates boatloads of cash where response time really matters, you may need to move it to a tier 1 hosting provider such as AT&T or Sprint.

Conclusion

Don’t stress this decision. When initially starting, pick one and get started. You can always move the site somewhere else later.
