Hosting for a website! Why do you need “hosting” and what exactly is “hosting.” I’m going to explain to you all about hosting and then I’m going to share with you various hosting companies and my recommendation for the best hosting company out there.
I’m thinking if you landed here on my website, you are probably interested in internet marketing, or affiliate marketing? This site here is designed to help people who want to set up or build up an online business to make money.
If you are one of those people, you have definitely landed in the right place. I was a teacher for many years, as well as an internet marketer. I have a lot of experience, training, and knowledge, and I want to share all of that with you here.
Let’s take a look at hosting your website and what your best option is!
What exactly is "web hosting?"
I am going to go to the Dictionary.com website and Wikipedia and pull up the actual definitions of hosting according to those sites:
If you have a website now, it has to be hosted. There are a lot of hosting companies out there, and they offer a variety of services and levels of services. I’m going to tell you my very favorite company first, because it is honestly the only one I recommend if you are looking to make money online.
Remember, I come from a place of much experience. I tried a lot of different companies, and programs, and educational classes. Ugh. Sorry, but I’m just trying to save you a lot of time and money. I’ve done the heavy lifting for you!
My choice for hosting!
If you’ve spent any amount of time here on my site, you’ve heard quite a bit about the Wealthy Affiliate program. Wealthy Affiliate is a platform that was built by two brilliant affiliate marketers named Kyle Loudon & Carson Lim. They’re from Canada, and they were like me, searching and searching for a legitimate program for affiliate marketers, but they were not finding what they needed.
They decided to build their own platform. Wealthy Affiliate was created over 14 years ago! They have over a million members now, and many of them have been in the program since its inception.
Why Wealthy Affiliate is my #1 Recommendation
When you are running an online business, you don’t want your IT Department (your hosting company) to be part-time while you’re working full-time, right? Wealthy Affiliate offers 24/7/365 Support. That’s critical. It can be very stressful to have an issue when you’re in the middle of something. You want a responsive support team!
Christmas Day? Support is there! New Year’s Eve at midnight? Support is there! It’s not the type of support where they send you an email telling you they will respond within 24-48 hours. It’s the kind of support where real people get right back to you. That kind of support!
Look, I’ve written several articles about Wealthy Affiliate and how they can grow your business faster and bigger than you ever dreamed possible. My business took off when I joined, and I would not run my business without them!
Take a look here. Take a few minutes to read these articles and familiarize yourself with all that this absolutely amazing program and training can do for your business (and your wallet!)!
Wealthy Affiliate Membership Plans
One of the major benefits of Wealthy Affiliate is that they offer a Starter Plan that is 100% free to join and maintain. You don’t even need a credit card or debit card to sign up and get started.
The Starter plan provides you with two free websites, free hosting, and ten training modules to get your business up and running! You also get the 30 keyword searches through the Jaaxy Keyword Research tool. (You should have read about that in Part 3 above.)
Honestly, you just won’t find anything that can compare to the Wealthy Affiliate program. Here’s a comparison of the two levels, the free Starter Membership (which I recommend you get started with), and their Premium Membership, which gives you everything they offer their community:
Everything in Premium only
Before I found the Wealthy Affiliate program and all the wonderful training and community, I tried some other programs and platforms (ugh), and one of the things I really couldn’t stand was the fact that I would sign up for a program, and the next thing I knew, they were telling me I needed this upgrade and that upgrade, this upsell and that upsell. It drove me crazy.
Wealthy Affiliate has only the two membership levels. Starter, which is free, and Premium, which is $49/month. That’s it! You get everything they offer in the Premium membership, and believe me, that’s a business in a box!
What about other hosting companies?
Like I said above, I’ve tried (and been burned by) so many other programs, and I was so relieved to find the Wealthy Affiliate platform. It’s actually amazingly cheap for all that they offer. I really still can’t believe that I can run my entire business for under $50!
Anyway, here is a comparison chart to show you just how great the Wealthy Affiliate platform is:
Let's look at the training you get with the Starter plan
The Wealthy Affiliate Starter program is actually pretty amazing. Now, you’re not going to have access to the community benefits and unlimited training like you will with the Premium plan, but they do a great job of getting you started.
You will be able to set up your first two websites and be fully trained through the first ten training modules included in Starter. Here’s a look at the training you get with the Starter Plan:
