Hello Everyone,

I thought I'd make a small thread to give you all an idea about the use of hosting. I've been seeing a lot of threads relating to free hosting, free VPN/VPS or offshore hosting and Id like to give you a small perspective of how they function.


Trusted Hosting providers
these are the most known and trusted hosting providers. I Personally use and rely on a hungarian hosting for myself.


Why you shouldn't be using offshore
  • Untrusted providers usually offer offshore hosting and free plans, you have no security, no way of telling what sort of access they have to your private files and database
  • No assurance of stability, your site can disappear at any time...
  • No server control
  • Terrible quality
  • Unknown security quality & privacy control
  • Limitation relating to flexibility, design, and control
  • Moving is a nightmare
  • Google engine WILL NOT rank to the best of its ability.
Alternative?
Of course... these are the alternatives below from a professional standard.
  • Use any of the above-trusted hosting providers, preferably SiteGround.
  • If you want to direct audience outside of your home country, simply use CloudFlare. Very simply, CloudFlare helps to make your website faster for all the visitors by locating a server closest to them and it also stores the Cache in their server. The beauty behind this is that SiteGround offers a free version of the CloudFlare... BINGO!
  • Now you have full control, flexibility and access to your hosting server, Cpanel and free premium applications offered by SiteGround.
Benefits of a known hosting provider
  • One of the most important points - REGULAR MAINTAINED SERVERS'
  • Second most important point - 24/7 LIVE CHAT SUPPORT
  • Highest quality applications
  • Regular updates, releases and assurance
  • Stability and control
  • Speed....👻
"What if I can't pay for a good quality hosting?"
You pay for quality... enough said.

Good luck
