You have planned your website… So exciting!
You have chosen the perfect name and domain name… It is available!
The Universe seems to align for you to have your Signature Website up and running, all of the sudden…
A red light, STOP!
These questions drill your brain: Where should I host my website? Which is the best platform for me?
You feel overwhelmed by the numerous options, most of them with technical descriptions that mean nothing to you.
I am sorry to inform you that you have not finished you Web Plan, yet.
Your equation is one of the most asked questions in the industry.
The best Platform and Hosting for your website
The answer is: “It depends on what you want.”
Your first decision is if you are willing to dive into the web development yourself or if you want to work with a professional developer.
If you want to develop your website, then you may decide to work with a managed hosting and platform like Weebly, Wix, or WordPress.com; there are some others.
Let’s say you want to surf into WordPress.org, Joomla, Drupal, or any other platform (CMS); then you may be surprised by the huge amount of managed and traditional hosting options.
We all have our preferred platforms, mine is a combination of WordPress.org and DIVI.
Although hosting companies are similar, by offering one-click installations, cPanel admin dashboards, add-on domains, email management, WordPress managed hostings, and many other things; hosts can be pretty different in many other ways. That is odd, I know. Too much technology in one day. Please explain!
Whether you decide to DIY or hire a developer; your best option is to learn the hosting basics and be the last decision maker, even if you have an experienced web dev with you. After all, it is YOUR BUDGET, YOUR MONEY!
The last module of the course “Create Your Signature Website” explains in detail the options and benefits of the most popular platforms (CMS) and host options for you to make an informed decision.
