Why Choose our WordPress Hosting Package?

When most of our clients come to us for a new website, they focus on just getting the website done and online. They don’t always consider everything else that comes after that. Hosting is often a rush job, done at the cheapest price. Often, this isn’t factored into the budget until much later in the process, and sometimes not even until after the site is live.

Our WordPress hosting services take a different approach. Your hosting service has a big impact on how your site performs for your users. When the hosting service is not geared towards performance and SEO, it can harm the website that you just spent weeks or months developing with your team and web design company.

At ProfileTree, we use the best hosting platform for your website, ensuring it meets and exceeds the requirements for your website to perform well online.

We also build a whole host of services into the package. This ensures that your website stays continuously optimised and updated. Our support team will keep your WordPress site backed up, secure and safe. We provide a high level of website service at a range of 3 price points, depending on the level of cover and service that you need.

Monthly Plugin Updates Add-on

Can be added as an extra to your hosting package. An experienced developer will work through your website and update the plugins – manually checking that all elements are functioning as they should be and will send you an email confirming what has been actioned.

This includes a developer spending one-hour updating plugins and checking the website. If a plugin update does break something which would result in additional time over the one hour scheduled in this plan, we will inform you by email and you can either approve the work or revisit it again in the future.

An experienced WordPress developer will be quicker than your in house team updating plugins, but also very skilled in this process having completed updates already thousands of times. They will know what to check and ensure the site is working well after the updates are complete. Sometimes older plugins on websites are more difficult to update and this may require additional work which would be quoted for, before any additional costs were incurred.

It is one of the best ways to ensure your website is running at the best performance that it is possible. Faster loaded websites become better sales and leads machines.

In the content below will share the importance of web hosting, what it is, and why you should understand where your website is being hosted from.

What is web hosting?

Think of web hosting like a storage container for your website, that houses all of the files and content you wish to share with others. If any site exists on the internet, it is being ‘hosted’ by someone, somewhere, physically on a server.

A website is stored on a web hosting provider, with dedicated servers and control panels to maintain the functionality and security of a website. The domain and hosting services allows your business to use secure, external servers to publish, update and maintain your site.

You should give some thought to who your web hosting provider is, because you’ll need to consider the scalability, speed and security they provide. Professional web hosting servers can share content on sites incredibly fast and efficiently.

Your web hosting provider essentially provides your business with a ‘plot’ of internet space to host your website on. There are many different web hosting providers and it’s important to think about the most suitable options for your business. Read more about what web hosting is in this beginners guide.

Why should I think about web hosting for my business website?

If you’re launching a business website, you really need to consider where the site is hosted from and who is providing the hosting service. Web hosting affects the functionality of your website and it has a great impact on user experience.

If a visitor to your website has a poor experience, they won’t blame your web hosting provider, they will blame your business and brand.

Some of the things to look out for when considering a web hosting provider includes storage space, bandwidth and email hosting:

Storage Space

This refers to the amount of data you can store on your website. Typically this stands around the 5GB mark, but can go all the way up to unlimited storage plans.

You should consider how much media is displayed on your site – images and videos will quickly eat away at your storage allowance.

You’ll also want to look into what happens when you want to update your storage allowance. As your business grows, you may begin investing more heavily in content marketing. You should select a web hosting provider that can grow with you as your business grows.

Bandwidth

Bandwidth is essentially how much traffic your site can handle. The best analogy here is a busy road. A dual carriageway can easily handle hundreds of cars every hour without becoming congested. However, if thousands of drivers tried to drive down the same road, things would quickly start to slow down.

Bandwidth works exactly the same way. It’s generally best to purchase a plan which offers the highest bandwidth within your budget – the speed of your site has a direct impact on sales figures.

You should also consider what’s known as the bandwidth overage.

This is your host’s policy for what happens if you go above your allowance. Generally, hosting services will do one of three things:

  1. Turn off your site entirely.
  2. Automatically charge additional fees.
  3. Notify you that you’ve exceeded your allowance, and give you time to upgrade without penalising you.

Business email

Your web hosting provider will also be responsible for hosting your businesses email accounts. Some of the things you might want to consider when selecting a web/email hosting provider is:

  1. The number of unique email addresses they will let you create
  2. Inbox space in each email account

It’s important to think long-term about selecting an email hosting provider, as you will want a service that will let you create more email accounts as your business grows.

There is a lot to consider before partnering with a web hosting company, read this article for some tips on what to consider before Choosing a Web Hosting Company.

What are the different types of web hosting?

It’s important to know the difference between website hosting services, so that you can select the most suitable one for your business website.

Dedicated Hosting

Some companies offer dedicated hosting, although this requires you to have a sound knowledge and understanding of web-hosting demands. You need to set up and operate a web-server, but there are many advantages like greater control over your website’s security.

Shared Hosting

Shared web hosting means that many users with multiple websites are on one server. Almost every web hosting company offers shared hosting and it is one of the cheapest types of hosting available.

Shared hosting however, may lead to potential overcrowding and potentially, slow your website down. Although many companies offer decent performance, support and sound security measures.

Cloud / VPS Hosting

VPS (Virtual Private Server) hosting, or also known as cloud hosting, works in a similar way to shared hosting except with fewer people on a server.

With this lower number of people sharing, the risk of security issues is decreased. The VPS helps secure your hosting by using technology to separate and protect your site from potential issues.

VPS hosting ranges in pricing from low budget to costly options. With VPS hosting, choosing the right plan for you is essential as you may need more bandwidth than you initially expect.

Web hosting companies

Think of web hosting like property – there are many different landlords and agents selling/renting property out for you to reside in and store your personal things, similar to how there are many different web hosting companies who are lending out their onlines spaces for you to store your website in.

Some of these companies offer paid for or free hosting services. The free hosting providers tend to get their return on investment by running ads on your website or by placing their logo in your website’s layout.

Below we’ll discuss some web hosting companies on the market and what resources they can provide your business website with.

WordPress

WordPress is one of the most popular website builders and usually the cheapest option when selecting a web-hosting provider. It is a very user-friendly platform and allows users to build, publish and manage their website’s content.

There are two forms of WordPress:

WordPress.com

WordPress.com provides its own hosting, which means it is free for everyone, but it restricts plugins. Plugins can be an essential part of customising your website, so you may want to use WordPress.org.

WordPress.org

With WordPress.org, you can add your own plugins and still use the WordPress platform, but you’ll need to find your own hosting from other web hosting sites such as Bluehost or GoDaddy.

Plugins are used for adding features like e-commerce or mailing lists, this is what makes WordPress such a popular option for building your business website on.

At ProfileTree, we provide excellent WordPress hosting services, you can read more about our prices and services. 

Managed WordPress Hosting

Managed WordPress Hosting is one of the most popular WordPress hosting types. The whole hosting environment is set up to support WordPress and to help increase speed, security and reliability.

The price for managed hosting can become very expensive, depending on the resources you need to host your websites. Many managed hosting plans have restrictions to help make your sites more secure. This means some plugins will not work with managed plans. In this article, you can find out more about hosting with WordPress.

Companies such as WP Engine and Flywheel, deal solely with managed WordPress hosting, they are experienced providers in this market, but other companies like LiquidWeb work with WordPress and other web building platforms. At ProfileTree, we also specialise in providing hosting services with WordPress. Find out more about our web hosting with WordPress services here.

GoDaddy

GoDaddy is the leading and largest domain register in the entire world. They have served approximately 17 million customers and registered over 73 million new domain names internationally.

How much is web hosting?

#View Offer

The cost of web hosting depends on the hosting type. Shared hosting tends to range from £6 – £20 per month, whereas dedicated web hosting can cost up to £500 per month. We see a lot of companies go for the cheapest hosting possible and then invest heavily in marketing with a marketing team, paid adverts and content creation. But with the cheapest hosting, their website is not loading as fast as it could and should.
So they are wasting or loosing a percentage of their entire annual spend on their marketing team, staff salaries, advertising costs – never mind the lost sales from missed traffic to the website. The question is not how much is web hosting, it is how much is cheap hosting costing my business! If you have a landing page or you do not want to generate any online sales, then the cheapest hosting is perfect for your needs. Otherwise – pay a little more and ensure your most important business asset is optimised for ranking and speed.

Why do I need a web hosting company?

A web hosting company will allow your business to use secure, external servers to publish, update and maintain your site – providing you with a suitable space to store your website and make it accessible via the internet.
